Sunday our little girl turned 8 months. Wow, this was a month! Baby girl is buuuuusyyyy! (And that is an understatement.) She is full on mobile and wants to explore. Then she wants to be held and then wants to explore. Repeat a 100 times a day. :)
This month was a little fussier than the previous ones for Miss Em. I think she has full on stranger danger and on her eight month birthday sweet girl woke up with her very first tooth!!! It is her upper left one and I am pretty sure her right one is coming in as well.
This month was a challenging month for sleep. We have moved to two naps a day (usually), so yay there. However, our through the night sleeper started waking up with a cough for 2-3 straight weeks and wanting to play around 4 a.m. Most nights she would just play in her crib and practice her pulling up skills and put herself back to sleep, but mama has a tough time sleeping when she hears her sweet baby playing and cooing. While precious, I was TIRED. Towards the end of this month, we moved back to sleeping straight through, but wake-up call has gone from 6:30 - 7 to 5:45 - 6:30. Ouch. We are working on it, though :).
Eating has been something this girl LOVES. She gets mad if she sees us eating something and not sharing it with her - like full on cry. The toddler years are going to be fun. But she always surprises me with what she will eat! Her favorite things right now are: cheese, yogurt melts, puffs, ground chicken/chicken bites (very tiny), baked beans, roasted cauliflower, watermelon and potatoes. She really will try almost anything! She is very good at getting small bits into her mouth, too.
