Monthly Milestones: 8 Months!

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

  • 18.3 lbs - 26 inches  
  • Eats: EVERYTHING... even stuff that you're not supposed to eat, like paper. Haha! Anything you touch automatically goes in your mouth! 
  • Sleep patterns as of late has been bedtime by 9:30 or 10 (sometimes 11) wake up between 2 and 3 am, then again at 7:30 and then nap time by 11a.m. and again at 5pm. You're morning naps are much longer ranging between 1.5-3 hours. 
  • Diaper Size: Still at 3
  • Clothes Size: 6M/6-9M
  • Likes:
    • Avocados and bananas! 
    • Plush blankets! You absolutely love them and have to have them to be able to sleep!
    • Strings and laces! You have thing for it right now that you'd rather play with (or in this case, chew on) the lace that you're supposed to use to pull around your dump truck toy instead of the actual toy! 
    • Mirrors! Idk what it is about them but as soon as we're in front of one, you start laughing or smiling! You started doing this a while back, but I just really noticed how much you liked it this month because Id catch you crawling all the way to the foyer to look at the mirror! 
  • Dislikes:
    • Jumper! You can only stay in that thing for no more than 10-15 minutes, otherwise you get bored and tired of it and you'd scream to be picked up. 
    • Feeling trapped and restrained, which is why you're not a fan of your jumper anymore. 
  • Milestones: 
    • Pulling yourself up and standing on your own!
  • Firsts:
    • Eating chunks vs. pureed 
    • Beach trip in Virginia! We took you to one of our favorite ones in the area by the Lynnhaven Pier. It was a beautiful day and a sunset to end with!
  • Personality/Others: 
    • You definitely let us know when you're upset by screaming (screeching) and crying at the same time, specially when we take something away from you that you're not suppose to have. 
    • I hate to say it, but you're getting more stubborn too! I'll take the credit for that, I guess you got that personality from me. Yikes! 
    • Aside from your meltdowns, you are a happy and giggly baby! It doesnt take much to make you laugh! Unless youre just waking up, then you want nothing to do with interacting with anyone for at least 15 minutes lol! 
    • Its getting harder and harder to get pictures of you for your monthly pictures. I really have to take quick snaps because after the 10th snap, you're over and roll away! Haha!
