Haddie-Lynn: eight months

Dear Haddie-Lynn,

Another wonderful month with our wonderful girl. Your personality is a little sassy and a whole lot of sweet. You really do smile nonstop. Everyone loves to tell us what a great baby you are and I couldn't agree more. 

We've got a good little routine going on these days. Feeding is the same as last month, with nursing on the 3s and two 4oz servings of solids per day. We've added a few new things: spinach, chicken, and oranges. You also have your first tooth! You'll be chomping down food in no time.

You are starting to grow out of some of your 6m clothing. Things that snap like footies and onesies are getting a bit tight. You are a long and lean little girl. With the warmer weather, you've been wearing more dresses though, so those will fit for awhile. You've also moved up to the medium stride in your cloth diapers. 

Bedtime has changed a little bit. We've pushed up your last feeding to 8 and then you are down for the night. Mama was noticing that after your 6 o'clock feeding you were falling asleep in your mamaroo and then I would wake you at 9 to eat and go to bed. Why not wake you at 8 to eat and go to bed? This way mama and daddy have a little time before they need to go to bed too. You seemed to adjust to this no problem.

Another bedtime development is that you are now in your crib! It's only been about a week but you seem to be doing just fine! You fuss just a little bit until you start sucking on your fingers and then you just go right to sleep. I still can't believe that you are a finger sucker. You flat out refuse any sort of passy at all. It makes me a little sad. I loved the passy days with your brother.

You don't really show any desire on becoming mobile. No signs of crawling and you won't even bear weight through your legs yet. Anytime someone tries to stand you up, you tuck your little legs under your bottom. Oh well, no need to rush this sort of thing. You'll do it when you're ready. You are becoming really good at sitting up unassisted though!

It seems that Waldo has become your kitty of sorts. Every morning he comes into your nursery with me and waits by my feet as your nurse. As soon as your done and I sit you up, he hops into my lap so you can pet him. It's equally adorable and strange haha. Waldo has always been our unpredictable cat, but he seems to love on you no matter how much you might grab at his ears or tail.

Daddy and bubba still get the best smiles out of you. You get so excited to see your boys and start flapping your hands up and down. In the morning, I take you into bubba's room to wake him up and you both start the day with big smiles when I do. I adore seeing how much y'all love each other. Bubba and daddy both love to make you giggle. It is the sweetest sight.

We all love you so so much baby girl!
