8 Months!!

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Our Dearest Stella,
Our sweet baby girl, I can not believe you are already 8 months old! I just keep thinking about all of the milestones you're going to be reaching so very soon; for now I'm taking in every second of carrying you around and rocking you to sleep. You are still the most chill and laid-back little girl ever; you rarely cry anymore at all. We love you so much baby girl!
What you did this month:
  • You are weighing about 15 pounds and roughly 24 inches long.
  • You are wearing 6M to 6-12M clothes. You wear size 6/9 M and 9M in pajamas.
  • You are wearing size 2 diaper but we're going up to 3s on the next order.
  • You nurse every 2-3 hours during the day and about every 4-5 hours at night.
  • You are napping much better this month. You take a morning nap around 10 for an hour to hour and a half. Then you take an afternoon nap around 2 for about 2 hours.
  • You go to bed around 7:30 at night and you've been waking up around 11:30, 3:30, and then you're up for the day around 8.
  • You are still sleeping in your pack n' play in our closet. 
  • You've gotten pretty good at going from a sitting position to laying on your tummy. You're still not a fan of rolling over though so you usually just stay there until someone picks you up.
  • You can move yourself around by grabbing the rugs in yours and Wyatt's rooms.
  • You love eating food and really prefer to feed yourself. You're still eating some purees, yogurt, and pieces of food that were eating.
  • You love when mommy sings and rocks you to sleep.
  • You love animals! Your face lights up and you're so happy when they come around.
  • You sat in a high-chair at a restaurant for the first time this month.
  • You slept in the crib at Mimi and Pop's house when we visited.
  • You had  a final head check today and you're all clear! Your head is growing perfectly!
  • You've had lots of pool time but haven't actually been in the water yet. Hopefully that's coming soon!
