Adelyn’s Eight Months Old!

Once again this post is late. I’m posting it more for my reference than anything! On February 21st Adelyn turned months old!! So check out what Adelyn was up to during her 8th month! Hard to believe I need to be thinking about her 9 month VERY soon! IMG_12711

Her favorite game is peek-a-boo! This month she learned to hold her taggie up by herself to hide! And of course Sophie & her taggie blanket have been a favorites for a long time. She still loves to gnaw on Sophie! I think we might have to retire poor Sophie though. Adelyn threw her out of the cart at Target and Sophie got ran over. Now her squeaker sounds a little horse!IMG_1274

Adelyn continues to be a champ at army crawling!! She’s so quick too!! She will take about 1-2 strides of regular crawling, but then she plops down to her tummy and army crawls. This month she started pulling herself up on whatever is available…coffee table, toys, Mommy, or Daddy, etc!

She celebrated her first Valentines Day this month! She took apple juice Valentine’s to her friends & teachers at daycare. Also at daycare she got her first brownie (not by Mommy & Daddy’s choice). Speaking of daycare she got moved up to the next room on 2/1/12. She was the big girl in the room and now she’s the little peanut again! I’m hoping this doesn’t make her want to do big girl things sooner, although I’m sure it will!IMG_1278

Adelyn has really started to talk this month! Of course her first words were “da da” and “ba ba” despite the fact that I say “ma ma” to her 100 times/day!

We started doing more finger foods with Adelyn this month and she does SO well with them. We’ve done pancakes, waffles, broccoli, green beans, potatoes, cooked carrots, sweet potatoes, and peaches. She also had her first *small* taste of ice cream this month and LOVED it!IMG_1282

We eliminated a feeding this month down to 4/day. I still nurse her in the morning and night before bed. Then she has 2 bottles of breast milk at daycare. Adelyn was completely ready for that change and did really well. She also started getting 3 meals a day. She has cereal or oatmeal with a fruit for breakfast and then a fruit & vegetable for lunch and supper. She also gets 2 snacks a day at daycare.IMG_1286 

Adelyn moved to size 3 diapers this month. They seem SO big, but I’m sure that won’t last long!  And she's wearing just a few size 3-6 mo, mainly 6-9mo, and some 6-12 mo clothes. We're close to retiring those last few 3-6 mo clothes!

eating – 100% nursing or breastmilk from a bottle, cereal, & solids

  1. She looks like an old pro at the picture taking thing in that first one, like I got this - I know what to do! I can't wait for Chloe to start moving around a little bit, or maybe I can...It's just so fun to watch them learn new things. Love the new blog design by the way!
