I'm posting this 8 month update just a tad late, Addie turned 8 months this past Friday, but this Saturday marks the same amount of days that she has been out of my belly as she was in (35w5d) so I thought I'd just post this in the middle of the two dates.
Typically when I write these updates I feel like not much is different, but this past month we have seen a HUGE difference in the little sugar plum fairy. She's been babbling up a storm, and she has SO much personality. She's really acting like a cute little person now instead of a cute little blob.
She is constantly loud and laughing.
She smiles any time she sees someone, and waits for us to come into the room when she wakes up by scooting to the furthest corner of her crib and pulling her bumper down so she can see over it. It's the sweetest thing ever. But she also uses this against Colby and I sometimes and tries to spy on us! Haha
She likes to (we like to make her) dance!
Addie is now eating two meals a day in addition to nursing every few hours. She absolutely loves to eat! But she is still very little. 15 pounds! She loves everything. So far she has had oatmeal, apple sauce, peas, green beans, sweet potatoes, yogurt, watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, cheerios and has nibbled on some pasta. She is a great eater and is very independent but stays very clean.
She also always has water with her meals and LOVES it. We got her this Camelbak water bottle because she was having a hard time with a sippy cup and this works great! ... Even though it's almost as big as she is.
|Still hangin' on to those grayish eyes|
She also loves mine... which pretty much is as big as she is.
And she's finally sitting up on her own! She still a biiiiit wobbly but she's got the hang of it now. She also can get halfway up from a laying down position into a sitting position and is very close to being able to crawl! AHH!!!
She loves to read, loves her swing, finally, and loves to chew on everything.
She also loves her daddy more than anything I have ever seen.
Here are 2 short videos of them. Make sure you're sitting down, your heart may burst.
And even though TECHNICALLY she barely missed the cut, she just got her two bottom teeth in the past 3 days! So I'm just gonna throw that out there even thought it should TECHNICALLY be in next month's update. She did awesome! And has been sleeping great since she got them out. Maybe we can start sleeping great now, too!
We love you Sugar baby, and are so proud to be your Mama and Daddy.
