Well here we are again...another month has past. Addie is 8 months! OHHHH the milestones...they keep coming and coming! Crawling, pulling up, pointing, babbling, snacking...so much going on this month! Addie weighed 20 lbs 3 oz this month which is what I said she weighed at 7 months, so I'm not sure about my 7 month weighing. Oh well. That puts her in the 81st percentile for weight. She's known for her big ol' thighs. Got every other kid beat in the class:) Definitely bottom heavy, because you can't really tell by her face and arms. But I love every stinkin' inch of her!! Eat her up!
What she's doing now:
Eating - oh boy! She started having only 3 bottles a day (6 ounces) with 3 meals. She will eat 5 jars/containers of baby food a day not including her cereal in the morning. She does not like veggies so we have to mix fruit in it, but she does like turkey/rice or beef/rice mixtures with no fruit added (although I'm sure she wouldn't mind us adding fruit:) I also started giving her mum-mum and puffs. Really likes those and picks that stuff up with ease! She's been watching mommy:)
Diapers - size 3, but may need to move up soon
Clothes - size 9 month but 12 month fit much nicer around her 24 month size thighs:)
Development - Crawling everywhere...she's so cute doing it:) Makes it a little harder to do things myself, but she enjoys herself so much I love that she can do it now. Sitting up from a laying down position. Pulling up! This is a new one, but she's got it down! She's been working on it for a while, it's fun walking in her room in the morning with her peeping over the rail with a big ol smile on her face. Pointing...she really likes to point with her pointer finger. It's cute:) Talking more...mostly Dadadadada and she can talk really loud! Starting to have separation anxiety...it's hard to me to leave the room without her unless she's really focused on something else.
What she loves - her brother! Although he's not interested in her...he doesn't want her touching her at all...it's not all the time, but I wish he would realize that she's just a baby and loves him so much. She loves playing with her toys, going for a walk, but playing with mommy and daddy mostly.
She has continued to be such a good content baby...gosh just LOVE her!!
Here are some pictures of our sweet baby Addie at 8 months.
Elyse made this AU bubble for her.
Eat her up!!
