Today is Lilly’s 8 month birthday! I can hardly believe it. I get a
lot little sad when I think about how fast these last 8 months have gone. Instead, I like to focus my attention on how fun she is getting as she grows older. She really is more and more fun every day. I love watching her grow, explore, and learn new things. It’s amazing!
Weight: 20 pounds
Height: 28.5 inches
Favorite Pastime: Jumping! She loves to play and jump in her Exersaucer. Bath time. Eating. Watching Yo Gabba Gabba.
Least Favorite Pastime: Diaper changes. Getting her face wiped clean. Nap time. Learning to crawl.
Favorite Food: Sweet potatoes. Bananas. Plain old baby oatmeal cereal. Puffs snacks. Yogurt melts.
Least Favorite Food: Anything green. She really hates peas and green beans.
Sleep: She sleeps through the night 12+ hours. Boom!
Teeth: Her first TWO teeth came in over the weekend! The bottom left came in Friday night and the bottom right on Saturday morning. We had no idea this was even happening (no unusual fussing) until I stuck my finger in her mouth last week and felt teeth under her gums.
Crawling Status: She’s so close! She’s up on all fours, rocking, and moving her legs to crawl (this usually turns into some fancy yoga moves or impressive planking). She’s started to move her arms but she usually only gets one moved before falling flat. She gets so frustrated trying to figure it out. She’d rather be pulling herself up on things and standing. We’re convinced she might walk before she crawls. Stay tuned.
Lillian is developing quite the little personality. I’m pretty sure Blake is terrified of what’s to come. Screaming at the top of her lungs is her favorite form of communication. I’m not talking about a little yelling or crying really loud. She doesn’t cry. I’m taking about the loudest, high pitch, ear piercing scream you can imagine. That’s her thing. All the time. It doesn’t matter if she’s happy or sad, she’s screaming. She’s also really into blowing spit bubbles, so that’s fun.
Seriously though, Lilly is a great baby. She’s silly, sweet, and as feisty as ever! Love her.
Until next time,
