thursday tales [8 month update]

[the best picture we could get of miss squirms & wiggles who kept trying to snatch the chalkboard]

happy 8 months to our little babycakes lily! she's made some amazing strides since the last update:
  • still no teeth!
  • crawls like a champ
  • started standing [assisted, of course]
  • started pulling herself up in her crib [and peeking over the top!]
  • taking a few very assisted steps [especially when holding onto her vtech sit'n'stand]
  • working on her pincer grip
  • "talking" up a storm [particularly saying "dada" to my husband's extreme pleasure. in my defense, she calls me dada, beau dada, her toys dada, etc.]
  • up to 2 full jars of baby food [beechnut!], a breast milk/formula combination for day care [we do 1/2 breast milk, 1/2 formula and she seems to love it. just in time too as my production has taken a big dip!] and nursing in the morning and at night
lily likes: standing up in her crib, toys that make noise, people watching, eating, iphone/ipad/remotes [pretty sure that one is never going to change], chasing beau, day care, and hamming it up for pictures.

lily dislikes: being in the car seat for too long [although she was a champ during our recent trip to visit jason's family], not getting attention, and being dried off after bath time.

this coming month we'll slowly start introducing some more adult foods to her [there was an unfortunate incident with some beechnut chicken that she didn't like a all - mommy ate the rest] as she works on her pincer grip and will be waiting for some tooths to finally make their appearance [there's been a lot of teething but no teeth!].

to quote a little song i keep hearing on the radio: lily, "for all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you". love you, sweetness.


leave me a little note!
