Baby C: 8 months old!!

I can't believe that my baby girl is 8 months old today! 8 months old seems so old, especially when I think that in 4 short months she will be a year old. Baby C is moving and a groovin'! Here are a few of her new 'tricks':
  • 'Walking' forwards, backwards, and sideways in the walker. By far one of her favorite things to do. Since she is getting so good a maneuvering it, she can open cabinets, grab things off of tables and ottomans, run over toes, and trap her bother on the stairs.
  • Baby C gives the sloppiest drooliest kisses ever! You can tell when she is about to give kisses because she will start kicking her legs and grab your face so tight to properly slobber all over you. It is by far one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world.

  • Boy is Baby C a talker! Between Big C and her, there isn't much room for adult conversation in our house!
  • Baby C is wearing size 4 organic diapers, still allergic to everything else.
  • Baby C is still getting breast milk exclusively, with stage 2 baby foods. Her favorite by far are the fruits and sweet potatoes.
  • She loves eating puffs, even though she still doesn't have teeth. She will grab a handful and eat them! We have tried the bitter biscuits with her too but instead of mouthing them, she bites them off and chews!

  • WE have tried a sippy cup with her, but she prefers to drink out of her big brother's cup. SHHH...don't tell him!
  • Baby C still takes a small mid-morning nap and a longer 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon.
  • Lately she has been waking up a few times in the night for someone to put her pacifier in her moth. She doesn't care to look for it on her own...what a diva!

  • She is wearing 9-12 month clothing. She is wearing some of Big C's hand me downs and it is such a flash back to seeing him that little.
  • She is sitting up independently but has no desire to crawl. She will lie on her stomach and push her arms up, but just doesn't care to crawl.
  • Baby C loves to clap for anything and everything. Big C loves it when his sister claps for him.

  • Baby C still has red hair, I mean...what little hair she has is red.
  • Baby C continues to capture our hearts every day!

If you didn't notice her sign....WE ARE MOVING!!!! We have about a week left in our current house, then it is on to our new house! I've been busy with packing and paper work...along with two little ones, teaching, and master's classes. Our life is busy busy, but we feel so darn blessed!
