8 Months!

Blair,

Today you are 8 months old!!!

You are such a joy in our lives and becoming quite the awnry little girl ;)

We aren't for sure how much you weigh, but based on our scale around 17-18 pounds. You are in size 6-9 month tops and dresses, 6 month bottoms, and size 1 or 2 shoes.  You are in size 2 diapers.  You go down for the night between 7-7:30 and are typically up to eat around 2-3 then back to sleep until 6-6:30.  You have slept through the night a few times, but you do not do that every night.

You take 3 bottles during the day with Grandma and nurse when you are with mommy.  You are eating 2 solid meals a day- and you love when you are in your highchair to eat!  You have tried lots of new foods recently and only a few of them you aren't a fan of- one being Puffs.  You have started to feed yourself some things like cheerios and green beans if we put them on your tray.

Last month you were a crawling/scooting machine and this month you still are, but you are more of a "walk along anything you can" girl now!  You pull yourself up to anything and everything that you can, and you stand up if there is anything around you to help you get up.  You are a climber too- you have crawled into your boucey seat- so Mommy and Daddy had to take that away.

You have 2 teeth- your bottom fronts.  The first one came through on August 17th and the 2nd came through on the 29th!

You love bath time and move around the tub and splash and squeal- it's so fun!  You also love your water toys.

You really love on Kuba now and will follow him wherever he goes, although he's not a big fan of you touching him.  It's so cute to watch because you will touch him and he'll move a little bit so you move and then it just repeats until he gets tired of it and walks away.  You just laugh when he walks away!

In the last month, we celebrated Daddy's 30th Birthday, Mommy's 28th Birthday, and Labor Day!  It was a busy month!  We had so much fun celebrating with you in our lives.


We love you to the moon and back baby girl!

Love,

Mommy & Daddy
