Georgia - 8 Months

January 17, 2012

Sweet Girl,

You are EIGHT MONTHS old!  WOW!

You are SUCH a little joy!

I don't know any stats but you're around 20 pounds which I know because of our minor emergency visit recently.

New Tricks:
You LOVE to climb
Speed crawling
These aren't new but you sometimes wave and are learning to clap

You have three meals a day and one snack.  You eat anything we put in front of you and you'll try anything we have on our plates.  You started meats this month.  I refuse to make your meat baby food so you get Gerber.  It just grosses me out!  You are all about finger foods and love to feed yourself.  Your fine motor skills are really developing!  You love strawberries and most fruit and can't think of anything that you don't like.  I LOVE this about you.

You have 4 bottles a day.  Usually 7.5 oz, 9oz, 9oz, 6oz, and then we top you off before bed...typically just a few ounces.

Last month you were sleeping amazingly...then, you got sick.  So, your over 12 hour average is now back down to 11.  But, that is still just spoiled me last month.  We're still trying to get back into the swing of things after your upper respiratory infection.

You take 2 naps a day.  A morning nap and an afternoon nap.  Both are typically 1-1.5 hours but again we're still getting the hang of things post sickness.  You have been waking up too early hysterically crying some days so we're working on getting back to our "normal".  You're getting there though.

You say ma-ma, da-da, uh-oh, and sounds that range all over the alphabet but you don't attach any meaning to your words.  You understand "bite" and open your mouth for the spoon when I say it and you often repeat things I say in your own way...usually is sounds nothing like what I've said but will have the correct number of syllables.

not getting your way

I got so many nice/funny comments about you this month so I knew I had to record them some way so I could remember them.
-"That must be an angel that you're holding"
-"Blonde hair and blue eyes!  She's going to be a heart breaker.  You need to home school that one!"
-"She looks like a Cabbage Patch baby come to life!"
-"She is so smart and so strong!"

I love you sweet P.  You are absolutely brilliant and give me a run for my money every single day.  Nobody could tell me that you're not the brightest, prettiest, most wonderful child that has ever lived.  I can't wait to see where your life takes you!

That last picture cracks me up-she looks about ready to jump off that chair!! :)
I really hope Callyn is a good eater who will eat anything. I think having a picky eater would be so hard!
