At 8 Months-
- You weigh well over 21 lbs.
- I am guessing you are getting closer to 30 inches but we will soon find out at your 9 month appointment!
- You wear 12 month and 12-18 month old clothing.
- Size 5 Diapers
- Broke one tooth!! Yay!!
- Says "mama", "dada", "bubba", "bye-bye"
- Waves bye!
- Sleeps 9-12 hours. You have been waking around 5 am lately but I can give you a small bottle and you will go right back to sleep. I think your teeth are bothering you because you usually never wake up!
- Drinks 3-4 8 oz bottles a day
- Only on finger foods! You are doing so well! You've been eating everything we eat for a little over a month now and you clean you plate at every sitting! So proud of you and so glad you're such a great eater!!
You haven't started crawling! Sometimes I want to tell you "just crawl already!!" but you have no interest in it whatsoever! I will tell you what you do though; you reach like reaching is a sport. No wonder you don't crawl because you can honestly reach across the room and get back to sitting position! You can scoot on your booty and you do go backwards when you are on your belly. Maybe you will just start walking? You love when I let you walk while holding my hands! My mom told me that me and my siblings never crawled so maybe you just get it from your momma;)
You LOVE your siblings. I can't even tell you how much you love them. You take a catnap in the mornings and I let Joc and JP go wake you up. They run into your bedroom laughing and screaming "MADDIE GIT UUUP", climb onto the side of your crib and as soon as you see them, you aren't so mad about us waking you. You light up every time you see either of them. It is truly an amazing thing. I hope you are all so close when you grow older!
Your first tooth broke through the gums last week! You are going to look precious with little teethies!
You are happy ALL.THE.TIME. I mean it. You are just such a blessing. Compared to toddler hood, you are a breeze my Maddie-Rae!
I love you so much sweet girl and can't wait to see what the next month brings us!!
