Madelyn: 8 Months



You are eight months old!!  Can't believe you'll be 1 in 4 months!

You are a busy, busy girl.  Here is what's been happening in your life over the past month:

-I weighed you the other day and you were about 17.5 lbs.  Getting to be such a big girl.

-You are in size 3 diapers.  They're a little bit, but they work for ya. You're wearing size 6-9 month clothes.

-You scoot around a lot, but no crawling.  You like to lay on your stomach and put your arms behind you like you're flying.  You'd probably be more interested in walking, but we want you to learn to crawl first so you can learn to use those muscles.

-You LOVE to "talk" to people. 

-You're still doing really well in the nursery on Sundays and Wednesday nights so mommy can participate in choir while daddy leads it.

-You are eating 6 oz. twice and a day and 8 oz. twice a day.  You were sick for the first time this month and had to drink pedialyte instead of your formula.  It didn't really seem to phase you.  We're still feeding you bland food.  We'll start your regular food again in a couple days.

-You sleep between 11-12 hours at night.  Going to bed at about 8pm and waking up between 7am-8am in the morning.

-You'll celebrate your first Thanksgiving tomorrow!  We'll try giving you turkey for the first time =)  I bet you'll like it.
