8 Months

Finley Marie...you are 8 months today!!!
How are you seriously that old already!?!
(you were too curious with the camera to smile this month)
You weigh 20lbs, not sure of length, haven't had that checked for awhile
Size 3 diaper
Wearing 12 month clothes - I feel that you have plateaued a bit
Still wake up once in the night, but now all I have to do is go put your paci in your mouth. I have tried to not make you dependent on your paci at night but you are starting to want it more and more, just during the night though. So other than a quick plug in around 1am, you are sleeping completely through the night.
You go to bed between 7:30-8:00pm and wake around 7:30am
You are down to 2 naps a day now, usually 10am and 2pm which makes it hard because they overlap with your brother a bit. I have a feeling you will move to 1 nap MUCH sooner than Cole did!
The last couple days I will hear you in the middle of the night and I'll see you up on all fours, rocking back and forth...gotta get that practice in, I guess :)
You are not crawling yet, like I said, just getting up on all fours and rocking. I am totally fine with you not crawling yet, makes me life much easier!
Here is a video of your rocking skills. You definitely get that booty in motion!!!


You still sleep on your tummy and hardly move throughout the night. You will inch your way up to the corner of the crib and then won't move the rest of the night. Guess you like your head in the corner for some reason.
You still eat every 3ish hours
Eating 2 meals a day. You still have no interest in baby food BUT you do like rice cereal. As soon as I try to mix cereal with any baby food, you refuse. Stubborn much!?! I usually bake up sweet potatoes, squash, zucchini and have those as finger foods, or bananas, avocado...anything that is soft. You also love puffs and yogurt bites. Pretty soon I might try some tofu...ick!!!!
You have started saying "da-da", even though it means nothing to you :)
You cut your first (bottom) tooth this past weekend. You were not a graceful teether and I'm hoping the rest of them aren't as hard to come in.
You have been VERY attached to me lately! You usually go to anyone but lately you are definitely a mama's girl!
You also got your very first shot a couple weeks ago. We've had to postpone a couple times because you had the sniffles but you did great, cried for a minute and then were fine.

Here is you and your brother at 8 months.....my he had a big head!!!!
You are definitely more petite than him, aaaaannnnd, still waiting for that hair to come in :)
We love you sweet girl and can't believe that in 4 short months we will be celebrating your first birthday, yikes!
