Grace @ 8 months

Another month has come and gone! My baby is now 8 months old. Closer to being a 1 year old than a newborn. Doing new things each day. And that little personality is starting to creep out!

Over the past month....

-She has gotten so close to actually crawling. Although I would not say that she is officially crawling.....she is definitely mobile by scooting and pulling on her belly to get where she wants to.....which are usually things that she does not need!! Keeping the little 'choking hazards' out of her reach with a 3 year old has become a new challenge in our house! :)

-She got her 3rd and 4th teeth in this month. I noticed the 3rd one on August had just broken through the gums. And I noticed the 4th on September 9th. They are the teeth to the right and left of where her two top middle teeth should go. She hasn't gotten the top middle teeth yet....isn't that weird?

-She loves to eat!! :) (and she comes by it honest, I might add!) She still nurses 4 times a day...around 7am, 11am, 3pm, and 7pm. She eats her food after her feeding at 7am and 11am...then eats her dinner around 5pm. She eats pretty much anything I give her. Her favorite is her oatmeal mixed with fruit and breastmilk- which she eats for dinner each night along with a vegetable.

-She goes to bed around 7pm...wakes around 7am....and goes down for naps at 9am and 1pm. Nap length varies from 45 minutes to almost 2 hours. And she still sleeps on her belly.

-She is wearing 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.

-If you take something away from her that she shouldn't have (which, unfortunately seems to happen a lot)....she will scowl and make a sort of grunting sound.

-She ate 'puffs' and biter biscuits for the first time this month (8-28-10). She did pretty well picking the puffs up...but didn't know what to think about them at first. She still kind of makes faces when she puts them in her mouth. But really- we don't give them to her very often.


And she just looked so proud of herself because she was able to hold something and eat. I think she still has food envy, even though she has food of her own!

-And last, but not least....her growth chair pics!

She is really growing up....still so little and sweet, but in my mind Grace is still a newborn, but in the pictures she isn't. Why do they change so quickly?! I love all of the pictures!!

precious! she looks so much like her sister! :) I remember John trying out puffs for the first time- too funny. Can't wait for Matthew to get a little older to do fun stuff!

How can this be!?! She's getting so big. She's beautiful. I think this month's growth chair picture is my favorite. Love her. :)
