My "Boo Boo"is 8 months old and my goodness what a month it has been! She is doing all sorts of new tricks including standing! Let's just say I have my hands full, I'm running around all over the place getting her out of things, trying to babyproof everything and I'm losing a few pounds in the process. Haha I don't think I've been this active since high school soccer (which is really sad)! Let's jump right into Charlotte's info...
8 MONTH STATS
19 lbs. 5 oz.
28 inches tall
Charlotte's personality has really come through this month. She is so headstrong and very opinionated. She knows when I correct her or say "No" that she isn't getting her way and that usually doesn't sit well with her. Sometimes she reacts with just a little sign and whimper, but other times it's a full on straightening of her body, legs and arms being thrown everywhere, cry, kick and scream fest. She's just like her Mama! Haha!But she is also a very sweet baby. She's very caring. The other day I was watching a movie that made me cry and she sat next to me and stared at me with a look of concern on her face. She then nestled herself into my arms and cuddled with me for a few minutes (which she never does)! Charlotte is such a sweet little baby and I am so honored that she is mine forever :) These 8 months have been so amazing that I can't even put them into words. I love my little "Boo Boo"!
Ha! What schedule?
Well, she has a bedtime but that's about it.
Generally she gets up between 8 and 9am. About 2 hours later she takes a nap for maybe an hour or two. Then around 4 or 5 she takes another nap for about an hour or an hour and a half. I start getting her ready for bed at 7:30pm. I feed her, give her a bath (only using soap every 3rd night) then I put lotion on her, sometimes read a book, and then she goes to bed at 8:30.
I am going to re-sleep train her this month. It's a goal!
I still nurse her about 4 times per day. Maybe once or twice in the middle of the night (which will change soon like I said). But I nurse her before each nap, at bedtime, and usually another time if she needs comfort. Like I said above, she is standing now and therefore falls sometimes, gets so upset, and needs a little comfort from her Mama. Of course I'm sad that she got hurt but at the same time I love that she just wants me to comfort her :)
I am also feeding her a lot of chopped, cooked fruits and veggies lately! She loves them - especially avocado.
She also loves tomato, carrots, beans, celery, and yellow bell pepper.
She is still in 9-12 month clothing and some 18 month clothes as well!
Her diapers are size 3.
She's growing like a weed...
I hope you enjoyed this update about our little girly!
It's so bittersweet to watch her grow - as all you moms can relate to.
Comment and let me know if you have a little one around Charlotte's age and if they do anything similar! I'd love to compare notes!
