Holy Cow my baby girl is 8 months (last Sunday). And every day gets better and better.
A little about the tiny lady below...
A little about the tiny lady below...
Weight: G is weighing about 18 pounds! She has actually lost a little bit of weight which her mama does NOT like! Any tips and suggestions from other mamas would be great! It is like pulling teeth to get her to slow down and take a bottle. And because of that, she is waking up 2,3 and even 4 times a night to eat - but again, she only eats a little bit before getting distracted or falling asleep. HELP!
Health: We battled a stuffy nose this month but happy to report we are free and clear!
Sleep: Yea so if you read the Weight Section then you know - we still don't sleep at our house. Like not at all. Again - suggestions are appreciated. Any any other mamas - is sleep in my future ever again?
Social: G has met lots of friends this month! She traveled to NYC and met up with some of mommy’s friends from college and daddy’s friend from college and his sweet wifey. She made tons of friends on the plane (thank goodness because as we boarded they gave her the death stare!). Luckily she was a perfect lady on the plane so everyone was very complimentary afterwards (a flight post coming soon!). Now if you ask our neighbors in the hotel in NYC, they might have a different story (if you follow me on Instagram you already know that sleep really wasn’t her thing in NYC).
Diet: We have started finger foods and introduced a sippy cup! So fun. She still struggles with both (we started a week ago!), but every afternoon we have a “snack” where we practice eating Puffs or peas and drinking water out of our sippy cup. Her favorite foods are still avocados and pears, but she’s recently taking a liking to her turnip, tomato and potato mixture. We are trying chicken this week so we will see! Other than that, she is going strong on formula and breast milk!
Clothes: G can wear anything from 6 months to 12 months depending on the brand. I cannot wait for her to hop into her spring bubbles and smocked dresses. Ohhhh warm weather, please get here and stay.
Baby Gear Love: I love my baby food maker! I know it’s such an indulgence and really not necessary but it does make baby food making so easy! We also love anything musical. Her Easter basket is full of shakers and tambourines found at Target and Learning Express.
Crying: Same ole same ole in this category. She’s gets fussy when she’s way over tired, hungry or bored. Other than that we are a giggly baby!
Likes: Oh Sevilla what would we do with you? Georgia loves that dog more than I could have ever imagined. We play catch with Sevilla every day twice a day for usually 30 minutes each. Georgia squeals of delight as Sevilla races back to bring us the toy. So cute. She also loves with the tickle monster comes out at night time. She still loves her bath, walks to the water with her family and anything that makes “music.” (I put “music” in quotation marks because really anything that makes noise or that she can bang around suits her just fine).
Dislikes: Teething is harrrrrrrrrrrrd ya’ll. Like really hard. And sometimes staying awake until her bedtime is hard because the little lady plays so hard and get so sleepy!
Postpartum: Feeling good, especially when I get sleep!
Milestones: Her first flights! Yay! She has also started crawling! I don’t know whether to be excited or scared ha. She still lunges forward some and loses her balance, but this past week she started really putting one knee in front of the other to make headway. The only way to get her to crawl is to hold something far away that she wants… aka her sissy. Wherever her sissy is, that is where Georgia wants to be. Like I said earlier, she is also eating finger foods and trying out a sippy cup. She is trying to pull up now but is still a little wobbly. Oh my word baby girl, slow down.
