Lainey 8 Months

Size: Despite all the appointments we have been to this past month, I do not know your stats. According to our scale at home you are 16.8lbs. You wear 6-9 month clothes and size 2 diapers.

Likes: You love it when I lift/bounce you while watching Cambry jump around. That usually gets some giggles out of you. You like watching Cambry and she likes talking to you and getting you. You like when Daddy whistles. You have started kicking a lot more during bath time, and you like looking in the mirror. You are super grabby now and like to put everything in your mouth.

Dislikes: You still don't like tummy time, which is probably due to your ongoing reflux issues. You do not like getting dressed. I wouldn't say you dislike new situations and environments, but you are just very serious. You look around and it takes some time for you to warm up. When we get back home you give us those sweet smiles again. Also, you have started pulling out your headbands and bows and eating them. WHAT?? That is not acceptable. I will press on.

Working on: You started rolling from back to tummy this past month, yay! You don't exactly like to, and you will strongly resist when we try to push your leg over, but you can do it on your own if you are motivated enough by a toy. You are sitting up by yourself up to 15 seconds at a time. You just started trying to raise your booty in the air a little when on your tummy.

Sleeping: Well, we have finally stopped swaddling you! This just happened a few days ago. We bought you one of those Aden and Anais sleep sacks and we were shocked that there were no issues with the transition. You go to bed around 7:30pm and wake up around 6:30am. You usually wake up a couple times at night needing the paci and then we feed you around 5am. You take 3 naps a day. Although if they all end up being short then you may take a 4th cat nap around dinner time. You really do not like to sleep on the go. You do fall asleep in the car some, but you much prefer and sleep best in your crib. You are so very good about going to sleep. I just put you in your crib awake, you usually drop your paci and cry once, I put it back in, and then you go right to sleep - for naps and night. So thankful for this! My favorite thing is when you wake up and I go in to get you and you start slamming your legs down over and over again.

Eating: You are liking carrots and apples now. And you like to gnaw on strawberries. You take a bottle every 3-4 hours and drink about 5 ounces. You still don't have any teeth!

Your have been laughing more this month, which is a joy to hear. You are such a sweet little baby and we love you so much!
