8 months

Emmy girl is 8 months old today!
It is impossible to take a good picture of her because she is always on the move!  
What are you up to this month?
  • You started crawling last month and haven't slowed down.
  • It's a full time job keeping you out of Macy's food bowl.
  • You pull up on everything.
  • You love to pull up on Bryce's bed and you will stand there until I put you on the bed.  You and Bryce could play in his bed all day!
  • You are still the happiest baby.   You love your Mama and Dada, but you LOVE your brother.
  • You have started eating a few real foods like grapes, bagel, and bananas.
  • You wear a size 2 diaper and 6-9/9month clothes.

  • We think we have heard you say Dada and Mama once.
  • I've been trying to teach you to sign "more", clap, and wave, but you aren't interested.
  • You are still on the same routine as last month.  You get up between 7-7:30, take a morning nap at 9, an afternoon nap at 1, and go to bed around 7:30.  You sleep through the night!
  • You nurse in the morning when you wake up, you have a 4oz bottle around 10, a 4oz bottle at 1, a 6oz bottle at 4, and then you nurse at bedtime.
  • You eat three meals a day.  Usually a fruit for breakfast, puffs for lunch, and a veggie for dinner.  I wish I could get you to eat oatmeal or rice cereal, but you just don't like it.  I'm hoping to add some real food into your diet so you don't have to have puffs as a meal anymore!

I feel like I need to write things down during the month because I sit down to do your monthly post and my mind goes blank. 
Bryce at 8 months
Bryce seemed to have a lot more hair at 8 months!  Neither of them had/have teeth at 8 months.  Bryce could clap and sign "more", while Emmy seems to be more mobile at 8 months than Bryce was.  Both of your eye color was/is still a mystery at 8 months.  It's so interesting to see their similarities and differences at each age.
