Eight Months of Ellia

Age: 8 months
Height: Will find out for sure next month.
Weight: 17 lbs 3 oz at the doctor's today - turns out she has an ear infection. :( I'm writing this as she's sleeping in my arms because she won't let me put her cute butt down today, poor girly!
Clothing size:  Still the same as last month for the most part - 3-6 and 6-12 month tops, 6-12 month bottoms.
Diaper size: 3
Eating: Still loving her food pouches. She'll eat 4-5 a day with bottles in between. She's also been eating some more fresh fruit and sampling more of our food.  She's had puffs but I broke them into even smaller pieces because I'm a little neurotic and am always worrying about her choking, although she seems to have no fear and will shove any food into her mouth that we let her (or that she ninja-swipes from our hands + plates).
Sleeping: She'll wake up anywhere between 1 and 31 times a night. ;) Usually just once or twice though and just needs to be rocked back to sleep - no bottles needed overnight! She typically goes to bed between 7-8 and wakes up between 5-5:30.
Favorite toys:  She really seems to love a lot of her toys, but I have to say she especially loves her monkey book!  So much so that it is now broken into two pieces already.
Loves: Eating, being outside, her kitties, dance parties, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, baths, cellphones + tv remotes, her binkies!

I feel like Ellie has changed the most this past month.  I already wrote a little about it here, but she is able to belly-off-the-floor crawl now (watch out kitties!), pulls herself up on everything, has two teeth almost in, and is saying "mumma". I'm not going to lie, I was pretty excited that mumma was her first word. She says it all the time now, but it might be the cutest (and the saddest at the same time) when she says it when she's crying.  She also repeatedly gave me the best slobbery, open mouth kisses on Christmas Day. I really feel like she's growing every day and think this age is so much fun! Now that Christmas is over, we've definitely got to work on baby proofing the house because this girl is getting into everything. :)



P.S. Here's a picture of Ellie wearing the same dress when she was just over three months old.  So cute, right?! She still makes that face all the time. :)
