|probably my fav pic from this month|
She has started "making conversation". She looks at you and then speaks to you to get your attention, she changes her pitch and sound of her voice to "explain" things. She has also started patting things and grabbing things and bringing them to her mouth. She cannot find and replace her own binki yet-which is a skill that warms every mamas heart at 2am!
She moved to her big girl carseat- this has posed an interesting problem. Because she cannot sit yet I have to wear her or take the stroller or take the little car seat wherever we go. Most babies transition to the bigger car seat after they can sit. However, her helmet made us transition faster.
Sitting- we are working really hard on sitting. I am hoping (fingers crossed) we can master sitting in the next 2 months and if not, then by her 1st birthday. She is starting to get frustrated that she isn't more mobile, but overall is still a very content baby.
She is eating all sorts of good foods now. We started chicken and yogurt this month. Chicken will stay. Yogurt made her spit up a ton and get an eczema like rash so we will try that again in a while.
Sleeping has had its challenges this month. But we are working to get on a better schedule so we can all sleep better at night.
I am so proud of my little gal. At times I get kinda sad that she is so far behind developmentally, but it is very helpful to see all the progress she has made in the last month. She is the sweetest and makes our lives better every day.
Happy 8months baby girl! Love mommy
