Emilie - Eight Months.

Emilie weighs 17lb 2oz and is still in size 4 nappies. She wears 6-9 month clothes although the top in the above photo is a 9-12 month one and apart from being a little bit long in the arms, it fits! 

Eating - She still has 4 bottles a day but the past two days I have been trying to phase out her 10am bottle. Normally she has that one and then her lunch at 11am. She takes on average 6-7oz with each bottle. She loves her solid food but still cannot tolerate any lumps at all. She just gags and vomits. We're working on it but I think it's going to take some time so until then my blender is in full use!

Sleeping - I never know what is going to happen at nights. She always goes to bed fine but whether she stays asleep and for how long is a different matter. Sometimes she sleeps until 5am before needing to be rocked back to sleep, other nights she is awake every hour. I think teeth may be playing a part in those nights. She has 2 or 3 naps a day. 

Milestone -

Emilie is now stable when sitting on her own. So much so that I've stopped putting the quilt behind her! 

She is also so close to crawling and desperate to do so.. She gets up onto her arms and tries so hard to get onto her knees. She hasn't been able to yet which really frustrates her.

This month she said her first two words! The first was "Mama" and then a week later she said "Dada." Very proud parents over here :)

Emilie loves - Her brother, her walker, her food, being naked, bath time, balloons, playing on our bed. 

Emilie hates - Getting dressed or undressed, having something taken off of her, being stuck inside the house for too long. 

It blows my mind when I think about the fact that she is already eight months old. She is at a great age though and learning new things everyday. We're still experiencing some problems with silent reflux and I cannot get her into see her pediatrician at the hospital until June so for now we're continuing with her current medication and monitoring it. 

Happy EIGHT months Boo Boo!
