8 Months!

Saige Marie...you are 8 months old today!

...and this is your first official monthly post on your mommy's blog!

You are such a pleasant and happy baby (except when tired) and I constantly get compliments on your cheerful disposition. You love to "talk" and can certainly shriek and giggle to distract anyone who isn't paying attention to you. You are doing such a great job at the sitter when you are there 3x a week. There are no more tears and I love getting a good report when I pick you up :)

We still seem to be struggling in the sleep department, mostly during the nighttime. You sleep from 7:30 pm-7:30 am, but will wake up 1-2x for your pacifier. I have scattered a few throughout your crib and you do occasionally find one in the middle of the night. No matter what, you always greet me with a huge smile in the morning.  I think it is soon time to lower your crib as you have knocked over your sound machine a few times, I suppose I would get tired of the "falling rain" sound as well hunny.  You take 2-3 naps a day, depending on the length. You have lately been taking a 2-3 hour nap in the morning and then a 1-2 hour nap in the afternoon. Or you switch it up on your mama and take 3 45-minute naps. You are certainly always keeping us on your toes. 

You would also rather stand than sit, as you can see. I'm sure it won't be too long before you are pulling yourself up and cruising along the furniture. You can sit unassisted and are content to play with your toys, before you attack my iPhone or camera (they seem to be your favorite)

We are still chowing down on Gerber Organics, as we are now on 2nd Foods. You haven't found anything you don't like. You LOVE your puffs and it cracks me up when they get stuck to your face. I'm never sure how many actually end up in your mouth but they certainly keep you occupied!

We were just at the doctor yesterday for shots so I have up to date weight and height.  You were born weighing 7 pounds 14 oz and were 19 inches tall..  At your 8 month appointment, you weighed in at 17 pounds 8 oz and are 27 1/4 inches tall.  You are still wearing size 2 diapers and clothing ranges from 3-9 months. 

You are obviously following after your mama with that blond hair and blue eyes. I couldn't be more proud. You are definitely my daughter, no question :)  You are such a joy to be around and I love watching you grow and explore. You are certainly determined and have the army crawl down to a T, it won't be too long till we have a full on crawl.

All my love <3
