Kennedy – 8 Months

Holy goodness… 8 months. 8 amazing months with my baby girl.

Let’s pretend this picture says 8 Months on it… still don’t have photoshop loaded on the new computer.

This month…

Her personality… It’s just shining through. This girl… she’s going to be a force to be reckoned with.

She loves attention

She’s the happiest darn thing on the planet

She’s learned the “scrunch face.” She knows it always makes me laugh and she’s big on getting the laughs.

She’s now able to pull up anywhere… including doors… So staring out the back door is her new favorite place.

She’s starting to take steps while she’s standing if she needs to move a bit to reach something.

She hangs out in the pack n’ play when we need to get stuff done… Otherwise we’d lose her and she’d probably break my whole house.

She sits in the big girl part of the stroller now so we don’t use the car seat anymore.

The last of the baby paraphernalia {bouncer and swing} have been retired. We hadn’t used them in a long time, but they’re officially in the attic.

She claps

She bangs

She’s crawling everywhere. At the beginning of the month she just decided to take off and she hasn’t looked back.

She’s eating really well. She’s loving clementines and blueberries, but she won’t eat the skin so she eats all the good stuff and then spits out the skin. Her other favorites lately are black beans, broccoli, avocado, bananas and the yogurt-oatmeal mix I make her.

She’s sleeping better. She’s sleeping through the night much more frequently and the nights she does wake up its usually only 1 time {not counting the train wake-ups}

Photobucket

She has no interest in toys anymore now that she can crawl around.

Photobucket

She moved up to the infant 1B class at daycare.

Photobucket

She’s starting to give kisses. Big open mouth kisses.

Photobucket

She’s only taking 2 naps a day… Her choice not mine.

Photobucket

She loves hanging upside down and riding on shoulders

Photobucket

We dance and sing in front of the mirror and the reflection cracks her up. Usually we sing “who’s that baby” sung to the tune of “who’s that lady”

Photobucket

She’s starting to get upset when she doesn’t get her way. Arching her back, yelling, crying… exciting stuff.

She ate dog food. Well she didn’t actually swallow it, but she got a couple of pieces in her mouth one morning while I was getting her food ready. At least the dogs were nice enough to share…

She’s still only got the 2 bottom teeth so far.
Wearing 6-9 and 6-12 month mostly, but a few 3-6 onsies still fit
Still breast feeding every 2.5 hours or so and this month she started eating solids at lunch so she’s eating 3 times a day.

Happy 8 Months, Kennedy Brooke! I love you more every day!

  1. My little niece decided to eat dog food one day… my sister asked what she was eating so I took a sniff of her mouth… what an aweful smell! We made her spit it out and gave her some cheez-its instead 🙂

    Your daughter is adorable!
