Cheney girl, today you are EIGHT months old!!
Weight: SURELY you are 14 pounds by now. I have no idea though!
Clothes: either 6-9 month or 9 month
Shoe: 1 (and they are SO TINY!)
You are still drinking 4 bottles a day. You eat between 5-7 ounces at each feeding. You LOVE eating real food. Whenever anyone is eating, you think you must be eating too. Your favorite foods right now are mandarin oranges, blueberries, yogurt melts, mum mums, raisin bread, scrambled eggs, & really anything you can gum. You still have zero teeth but that does not seem to be a problem!
I can finally say that you are SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!! Praise the Lord! It took a few nights of sleep training, but it worked. You are now sleeping in your crib, in a sleep sack, from about 7:30-7:00 each night. It is wonderful! You also realized this month that you are a tummy sleeper. That is fine with me! You also finally got the hang of crib naps! You are taking 2 naps a day. Your morning nap is from around 9-10:45 and in the afternoon you sleep from about 1:00-3:00. Thankfully you are pretty laid back and can sleep anywhere because our schedule is pretty crazy!
Happenings this month:
-well, you are sleeping all night long! YAY!
-you are rolling all over the place...especially in your crib. Sometimes you even flip yourself to face the wrong end. You are the busiest baby and are always moving!
-You are pulling up to a standing position. Such a big girl. You can't do it on everything, but you are a master at pulling up in the bath tub. Stinker!
-You can now clap and it is pretty much the cutest thing ever. You always clap when we say "YAY CHENEY!!!" I need to catch it on video!
-you are obsessed with your brothers. They make you laugh so hard! Grayson now gets in your crib when you wake up & I love hearing y'all giggle through the monitor. They love you so much!
-you have enough hair to actually hold a bow! a real bow!
Sweet Cheney, you are just such a joy. You are the happiest baby girl and are always full of smiles. People stop and compliment you everywhere we go. I think it is those pretty blue eyes! We can't imagine life without you in it. Happy 8 months, baby girl!
