Kendall is 8 Months Old!
Kendall Paige, you are 8 months old! Time needs to slow waaaaayyyyy down!
At a doctor appointment a little over a week ago, you weighed 17 lbs 1 oz.
You love to eat! (Wonder which parent you get that trait from?) So far you have tried store bought: oatmeal, rice cereal, unsweetened applesauce, blueberry applesauce, squash, garden vegetables, and yogurt melts. You have also had homemade: sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, lima beans, avocado, pears, cauliflower, broccoli, corn, bananas, and regular potatoes. It’s getting harder and harder to get you to nurse. Hopefully, we can make it to at least 9 months. We are supplementing with formula.
You have 2 adorable teeth, both on the bottom.
I think we can say that you are officially arming crawling. It’s the cutest thing! You are also doing a lot better on sitting up.
You are still taking 3 naps a day, but your third nap is getting later and shorter. Your bedtime and getting up time are still the same (7:30 PM & 7:30 AM). When you wake up (in the mornings and from naps) you push down the bumper on your crib and stare at the door. You know someone will come and get you.
You are in the same sizes as last month. Size 3 diapers, 12 month sleepers, and 12 & 18 Month dresses.
You have started making more sounds. Lots of “bbbbbbbb”s.
We talk about how rotten you all the time, because you are. Momma calls you a one man demolition team.
We didn’t fully realize how much joy you would bring to our household. We love you!
