Abigail turned 8 months on the 17th, so I am behind again! I have seen a lot of changes this month!
Weight: almost 21lbs and I am not sure about the length
Diaper Size: 3- I see this possibly changing soon.
Clothes: All 12 months and I honestly can see her wearing 18 month shirts soon. So crazy!! She wears a size 3 shoe.
Eating: takes 5 ounces every 3-4 hours, eats baby food 2 to 3 times a day plus either cereal or oatmeal. She loves everything! She eats more and more table foods. I usually give her what we are eating for supper if she can chew it. We found out she loves pickles this month! Her favorites are all her baby food, bread, crackers, fries, beans, rice, puffs, graham crackers, and spaghetti!
She is still taking a sippy cup like a champ! She can give herself a bottle, but would much rather someone else.
Sleeping: We made the big crib transition a month ago and it is going great! I still cannot believe it! Andrew almost never slept in his crib. We follow the same exact routine every night and that seems to help. Bath (7-7:20), bottle (7:20-7:40), lay down (around 7:40- 6 am). She sometimes will wake if she loses her paci, but usually only once and sometimes not at all.
Napping: She takes 2-3 naps a day. They last from 45 mins.-2 hours.
Playing: She loves playing on the floor with Andrew. She especially loves his legos (they are the big ones). She still loves her outdoor swing, the stroller, riding in the car, and banging things together. She loves the bath tub and becomes giddy when we enter the bathroom.
Developmental Milestones: She is scooting all over the place. She has still not mastered going forward, but she is so close! She will get on all fours and rock back and forth. She can go from her stomach to a sitting position and vice versa. She is beginning to show interest in pulling up, but doesn’t quite have the strength.
Talking: I reported weeks ago that she said “Dada.” She said it for a few days and hasn’t said it since. However, she consistently says “hey!” and waves ALL the time! She waves to every person she sees! She will also wave when you tell her bye. She still makes lots of babbling noises and big laughs.
Personality: Her personality has really started to shine this month. She has become very ticklish. She loves attention and if you are not giving it to her she will let you know it! She is such a diva and wants it when she wants it! I do not believe she will ever be a wallflower. She loves to give affection. She loves to hug and have you kiss on her. If she sees me she will automatically put her hands up for me to get her. I can only imagine what she will be like as a toddler! Watch out!
I love these pictures because they really show off her personality!
