You are eight months old this month! Here are some highlights:
-You weigh around 20lbs or a little more and you are around 29 inches long.
-This month you have started getting up on all fours and rocking back and forth or hurling yourself forward to retrieve a toy. Mostly, you just scoot around all over the house...backwards. ;) You get stuck up under the furniture all the time!
-You can allllllmost sit up unassisted. Big girl.
-You are in mostly 12 month clothing and wear a size 3 diaper.
-Little voice! You say "Da da da da" all the time, and you make a funny little smacking noise that sounds like you are trying to cluck like a chicken. You have developed lots of different laugh sounds, and you blow raspberries all the live long day. :)
-Sadly, you have been suffering from ear infections off and on this entire month, and you haven't felt like yourself. We are on the road to tubes just like your big sissies, and I am SO ready for you to have some relief from the pain and all the meds.
-You have cut back on nursing this month (not sure if you are not needing it as much or if it is just a byproduct of allllll the painful ear infections). You nurse when you wake up for the day around 7am, once or twice throughout the morning and afternoon, once before bed around 6pm, and I still snuggle you up for a dream feeding around 10pm...because I can. And I love it. :)
-As far as baby food goes, you'll eat anything! Not even really sure what your favorites are, because you seem to like everything we've tried so far. Actually, I take that back. You weren't a fan of Mum-Mum crackers or puffs when we tried those. You looked at me like I was nuts for putting them in your mouth! ;)
-Not much has changed with your sleep. You wake up for the day around 7am, nap in the morning and afternoon (sometimes a catnap in the evening), and you can't make it past about 6 or 6:30pm.
-You move all around while you sleep, but your favorite position is on your tummy, curled into the shape of C...just like your sissies. :)
-You and I went to OKC for a weekend to see our Nama, Schmoo, Uncle Brendon and baby Charly. We had a couple of family dinners with Daddy's family, and we went to our neighborhood block party. Lots of family time this month!
Sweet Nora girl, you are just so go-with-the-flow and pleasant that we all want to be around you, especially Emery and Delia. You have been so sick this month, and even then you have been so sweet and happy. There were rough days, but you sure handled it like a champ. We love you so much, sweetie girl!
Love you forever,
