Baby C: 8 Months

This month has flown by. Wow! How is Baby C 8 months old now? 

Personality: Baby C continues to be quite sweet, but there has been a lot more crying over the past month. I think she has realized that crying gets her more attention. She has been a little more clingy and wants me to carry her around more, so the Ergo is getting a lot more use. If I'm holding her, she's a pretty happy girl, giving out big gummy smiles all the time (still no teeth).

Likes: Her big sisters. Attention from neighborhood kids. Being outside (hooray for warm weather, or at least occasional warm weather). Being held up in the air/flying. Kisses on her cheeks and neck. Being tickled (especially her tummy and armpits). Bath time and bath toys. The baby in the mirror. Being held. Her car seat and elephant blankie that Nana made. Eating.

Dislikes: Being put down for more than a few minutes. Socks. Not being able to move. Being on her tummy.

Eating: We haven't found anything that Baby C won't eat yet. She likes pureed bananas, squash, peas, green beans, pears, apples, chicken, blueberries, sweet potatoes... a whole mix of things. She has a hard time with puffs, but she loves crackers, especially graham crackers which she turns in to a gooey mess. We went in to urgent care with pink eye yesterday and she was over 19 pounds. Way to grow, Baby C!

Sleeping: Overall, sleep has been good. I very much appreciate that. She gets tired pretty early now and goes to be for the night around 7:30pm. E still gives her a bottle before bed, but she only drinks an ounce or two now before going to bed so one of us has been feeding her another few ounces when we go to bed around 10pm. Most night she then sleeps until between 5-6:30am. Sometimes she wakes up in the middle of the night but she falls back asleep if we replace her pacifier. During the day she takes a morning nap between 9-10am and another, longer afternoon nap. I've been trying do her afternoon nap in the crib which will work for an hour or so. If I move her to the swing after that hour she will usually fall back asleep for another hour or more.
