I'm telling you, I absolutely could not be more obsessed with this child!!! She is a pure delight. If it was even possible, I think she got more smiley and giggly this month. Her latest trick is that she learned to clap a couple weeks ago. Literally, out of nowhere, just started clapping. And she LOVES it!!! Does it all. the. time. And it's the cutest thing. It's like the world is constantly entertaining her and she's so pleased. Still crawling ALL over the place and has gotten even faster. I can't leave her alone for 2 seconds. Still pulling up to stand on everything in sight...just a busy little explorer. She has started sleeping SO much better this past month. Taking great naps, for the most part. And, every now and then she'll wake up at night but I rarely have to go in there. She'll usually fuss for a minute then fall back asleep. I'm always shocked and SO thankful! Still takes 2 solid naps a day, and usually still needs a 3rd little cat-nap in the evening. Overall, she's just pure sugar!!
Here's the comparison pictures between Lyla at 8 months and Lowen at 8 months...
Pretty crazy, right?!?
*Quick Mom question...(and confession)...I seriously HATE feeding her baby food. I didn't do it very long with Lyla. Pretty much went straight to finger foods. And even now, Lowen only gets like 1 thing of baby food a day. But, she doesn't have ANY teeth, so I feel like I don't know what finger foods she can have. So far, she's only had cheerios, mum mums, puffs, yogurt melts, and tiny bits of banana. If you are a mom of a baby around this age, any other ideas? Please?? :) I love being able to sit her in the high chair and let her feed herself! Call me lazy. I know.
Anywho, Happy 8 Months to our Lowen Lee!!!!
