Oh my I can't believe our baby girl is already 8 months. She is so close to a year. Sad :(
Weight: 16lbs (Eric got on the scale with her the other day)
Length: 25 1/2 inches (we measured her but she was pretty squirmy)
Eating: We are now doing solids 3x a day, so I really think this has helped her gain some weight. She nurses in the morning not long after we get up, then she gets 1/4cup of oatmeal with 1.5oz of breast milk and 1oz fruit, then 5oz bottle at 10:30, then at 11:30 2oz fruit & 2oz vegetable for lunch, 5oz bottle at 2:30, nurses at 5:30, followed by solids including 1-2oz meat and then 2-3oz vegetables, nurse right before bed. This month we have really started feeding her some food off our plate. It's so fun to watch her enjoy new foods (broccoli, strawberries, pancakes, bread, pasta, meatloaf).
Bedtime: Sometimes she skips her early evening nap, so if she does then bed time is between 8-8:30. Early this month she kept waking up at 2:30 wide awake jabbering away. We adjusted some of our feedings to help out with this. We realized if we do her solids early in the evening for some reason she sleeps better than if we do the solids around 7 after that evening nap.
Awake: She is awake for about 2 1/2 hours at a time right now with some stretches of 3 hours. Usually afternoon-evening are longer stretches.
Naps: She will take about a 30 minute nap in the morning at 9:30 and then an hour and a half nap from 12:30-2:00. We do a nap again 5:30-6:15ish. That last evening nap she is usually out, so we wake her up so she doesn't sleep too long.
Diapers: size 2
Clothes: 6 month clothes, jammies are 6-9 month.
Favorites: So just 2 weeks ago she figured out how to pull up to standing. It's crazy!!! She figured it out and then the next day she pulls up on EVERYTHING! It's so cute but this stage comes with lots of falls and tears. She has had a bruise on her forehead :( Just last week she took a few steps behind her toy. (I have a video I will try to upload).

It definitely was a challenge trying to get good pictures this month as she is just on the move. This is such a fun age as she is exploring and soaking everything up. Mommy & Daddy love you very much!!!
