Amelia, you're 8 months old!!
We're thinking you're around 20lbs, but won't know for sure until your 9 month appointment.
You're wearing size 3 diapers.
You're wearing size 9-12 month clothing.
You're sleeping 10-11 hours at night and you've been sleeping in your crib for the last month! No more pack-n-play in Daddy & Mommy's room.
Over the past couple of weeks, you've wanted to be rocked before being put down for naps or at night for bedtime. You just snuggle under my neck and let me kiss on you. I love it!
You're eating 8-10 ounces of formula every 4 hours during the day. You love every bit of baby food that we give you. You usually have baby food at lunch and dinner.
You love water through a straw, but won't take it from a bottle yet.
I've started giving you 1 ounce of juice with 3 ounces of water...you down it so fast! You've had apple, pear & white grape juice.
You love to play peek-a-boo and for us to say, "where's Amelia!??" You laugh every time.
When Mommy is working in the kitchen or fixing your bottles, you sit in your high chair and are such a good girl!
You love taking a bath in the sink. :)
Your new game is throwing things out of your car seat when you're finished playing with them. I have to watch you closely or we would lose every pacifier you have. Sometimes you look at me and wait for me to look at you and then you slowly drop it on the floor. Makes me laugh every time. It's like you're just waiting to see what I'll do!
Still teething, but no teeth yet!
When we take you places, people will talk to you and you always give them a smile. We are blessed to have such a happy baby.
You can now sit up all by yourself!
It literally happened overnight and we're so proud of you!
You are so fast and can grab something before we can even think about moving it. It's getting harder to stay a step ahead of you. Can't imagine when you're crawling!
You have the tightest little grip. Once you get ahold of something, I have to pry it out of your little fingers and it's difficult. You have even started putting your gums together and making this face like, "over my dead body are you getting this, Mommy!" (LOL)
You startle easily. I can blow my nose or laugh and you jump!
You're "talking" all of the time now. We have no clue what you're saying, but it sure sounds cute.
I will put music on and it's like you're singing along...makes me giggle.
You roll/army crawl/spin yourself to get where you want to go. It's fun to watch. :)
Daddy and I were just saying how we can't believe how fast your first birthday is approaching. Mommy is about to get into full, party-planning mode!
We love you so much, Amelia. We don't take one minute with you for granted.
Daddy & Mommy
