8 Months

This girl is 8 months old today.  Every month I have the same thought... how did she get this big?!  Time is flying and this kid is awesome.  She's growing and changing and I am honored to be along for the ride. 
  • weighs 18 pounds
  • reaching the limits of 6-9 month clothing!
  • sits like a pro & reaches all around for whatever she wants
  • pretty efficient with the pincer grasp (picking small things up with her thumb & pointer finger) and uses that to her advantage during meal time
  • eating more & more table foods and chunkier baby foods (in addition to a 6 oz bottle, 4 times a day)
  • is finding her voice.  Loudly!  She says "dada" on a regular basis & has an obvious preference for her Daddy over anyone else lately (we're pretty sure she's said it in direct reference to him, but we can't prove that!)
  • sleeps in her own room now (but how many times Mommy has to soothe her through the night varies.  Sometimes it's just once, but when it's been a busy (aka over stimulating) day then she tends to wake up every couple of hours in need of the pacifier & a pat.)   
  • has three teeth on the bottom
  • loves books, toys that play music, playing pat-a-cake and swinging at the playground
