Month Eight Favorites

Tuesday, February 19, 2013


Tommee Tippee Bibs- These bibs are great for when you begin finger foods & they make for an easy clean up. Otherwise my little chick ends up with a million pieces of food in her lap & a stained outfit every time. 
Organic Puffs- Besides my obvious love of organic, she loves these. I was so afraid to give them to her at first, but she did great & they practically dissolve after two good chomps. We will continue to use these until she masters feeding herself, they are super easy to pick up. She still likes me to feed her most of her foods, even though we are basically fully transitioned to finger foods.
Wooden Walker- We actually purchased a different wooden walker that was recalled because the wheels fall off & they have tiny pieces. Well whaddya know, our wheels are sitting on my laundry room shelf at this very moment. I plan on taking it back to the store & ordering this one as its replacement. However, she loves her walker. She doesn't pull up yet so it is definitely a little advanced for her, but she loves to play with all of the parts & pieces while it is turned on its side.
Organic Baby Mum Mums- This was the very first food that we let Kirby try. She did wonderful, it made me nervous when she would bite of a big chunk, but I just took it away & gave her the bigger piece & she would just nibble on it until it dissolved in her mouth. I kept giving her sips of water from her sippy in between so that it kept her mouth from getting dry. 
Squeeze Blocks- Kirby loves to chew on squeeze these sweet little blocks. The bag was definitely her favorite part so we had to take that away. But you better believe she has one in her hand at all times. She loves to knock them over help me stack them.  
Baby Doll- Hands down one of her favorite toys at the moment, she is such a girl. This isn't the exact one that Kirby has, but she LOVES her baby doll. Kirby gets the biggest kick out of us making the baby dance. I swear she has said baby twice!  






8 months

{Age}
8 months
{Stats}
Won't know until 9 month well check, but she is in the 9-12 month range for clothing.
{Diaper Size}
Still size 4 overnight diapers & 3 cruisers in the day, we have used Pampers from day one.
{Feeding}
Still nursing on demand, maintaining the previous schedule I posted on the 7 month update & doing great with solids. She is a very impatient eater she says mmmm & bangs her hands the entire time, we can barely eat ourselves. We have added a few new foods; kombacha squash, green beans, yellow squash, spinach, cantaloupe & kiwi. We also have started a few table foods this month. I started with the baby mum mums & it was a success.
Then I boiled the shit out of some broccoli, she wouldn't even pick it up because it just crumbled, but when I fed it to her she loved it. We are giving her either boiled sweet potato or boiled broccoli along with her purees to get the table foods started. She has yet to feed herself, she still wants us to put it in her mouth for her...Lazy Sue!
{Sleeping}
Still running on E for this momma. I am so ready for this wild woman to sleep through the night! We are up to nurse around 12 or 1 & then again at 4 or 5 & occasionally depending on how teething is going it can be more.
{Favorite words/sounds}
Still says mama & everything is baba. However, she is putting more syllables together (mi mi, be be, di di & gu gu but no dada yet). I think her first word will be soon other than mama or dada, I swear she has already said baby twice, but hasn't done it again so I can't say for sure. Says mommy sometimes, but it sounds more like ma mi. She is very close to saying hi & dada.
{Favorite Toy}
She loves her imaginarium wooden activity walker, however it was recalled because the front wheels come off & ours did, thank goodness she didn't grab any of the small parts.
 & of course anything that isn't hers to play with, including my lens cover (as you can tell my pictures have gotten much more clear), all of my previous ones were taken on my shitty iPhone3 & it drives me crazy looking at the poor quality of them!
{Loves}
She loves playing copy cat, blowing air in and out of her nose & making Indian noises with our hands. I swear she cracks herself up. Loves drinking water from her straw sippies.
{Not so much}
teething
{Signature moves}
Her new goofy smile, looks a little something like this, it is my all time favorite face that she makes.
& this smile melts my heart as well.
She is wiggling & dancing now too, she is such a ham.  
{Nicknames}
Any rendition of Sue that comes out of our mouths at the given moment.
{Milestones}
Started pushing  her self backwards.
Starting to try & pull knees under to crawl.
Started giving open mouthed kisses, swoon
Figured out how to push the button to turn her elephant toy on.
Figured out how to scream extra loud & loves it.
Is rolling & moving a lot more has become much more independent & entertaining herself for longer periods of time.
She actually maneuvered herself/army crawled over to my foam roller that I had out, but she hasn't done it since.
We went through the process of cutting her top two teeth this month, those teeth could have been the death of me. She had such a tough time with them & that left one actually popped up & went back down before cutting through. Hylands Teething Tablets were great, but her favorite thing to soothe was a breast milk bag that I filled with ice one night, she wouldn't let it leave her hands or her mouth. 
Started pulling up onto her activity cube & high chair while sitting in my lap. Every time she did it, she would look over at us & smile waiting for us to clap & say yay!
{Adventures}
We wished Kirby's Pow Pow a Happy Birthday!
 & my granny, Kirby's GG!
We celebrated my 22nd at home, quietly this year & it was my first birthday to celebrate with my girl, I couldn't have asked for more
Shopping & trying different things on my Silly Sue is a favorite adventure for the both of us!

Swinging at Landa Park is Kirby's absolute favorite & I love doing quick workouts at the park while she plays on the blanket.

 & she'll leave you with a smile.
