All About Laila: 8 Months

Holy moly! I have a 9 month old!! Times sure flies and I have to say, I wish it would just slow down. Here is everything to know about my darling at 8 months. And this month has been amazing.

Weighing in at 17 pounds but still wears a lot of 3-6 and 6 month clothes as well 9 months. Size 3 diapers.

Still eating 6 ounces every 3 hours...sometimes longer depending on when she takes her nap(s)

Absolutley loves to feed herself and will eat anything that's in site. The list of food that she has tried in the last month is outrageous.

Normally sleeping through the night (bed at 8:30 up by 6:30) w/ 2 naps during the same (most of the time)

Bath time is around 7:30 followed by a massage, some playtime, books and then in the swing she goes with a bottle. And at first, we never did mind the whole bath/bottle/swing thing goin' on but now we are kind of wishing she wouldn't need the swing/bottle to fall asleep. And don't get me wrong, she will fall asleep without a bottle but it is rare. And we can never just put her down in her crib while drowsy, she'll scream until you pick her up.

She is back to sleeping in our room in her pack n play and we have actually decided that we'll be doing this for a year but you never know, that could change, especially now that she will have a nice large room.

She has 7 teeth. 3 on bottom and 4 on the top. My little chomper and those suckers are sharp. No wonder she no longer wants to chew on her own hands/feet but if you let her chew on yours, she has no problem. haha

Can say "mama" "dada" "papa" "hi" "bye" "baba". She can sign up and more

She is crawling extremely fast, like "where did my baby just go" fast. It's incredible how quickly she moves. Definitely enjoys cruising around on furniture.

When she hears daddy come in the door, she immediately crawls from the living room all the way to the entry way, super fast, making a very weird "I just ran a mile" pant. Adorable

She is so so very in love with our dog, Mykenzie and will always look for her while she's eating. I think she secretly gives the dog food she doesn't like. If Mykenzie is on the floor, Laila will crawl up to her and pet  hit her, we still have to teach her how to be gentle.

She knows what "no" means and sometimes chooses to ignore it, other times, she'll stop doing whatever you say no too. Like playing with outlets, cords, dog food, computers, etc.

She is currently getting over a very nasty cough/cold and has been on Amoxicillin for a couple days now. This is the first time that we've ever had to go to the doctors to get medication. Other times, she was better within a day or two. But this one seems to be lingering forever.

Her favorite book at the moment is "A Wocket in my Pocket" She loves her toy cell phone (but still prefers mine), loves her Leap Frog Learn & Grove Table. Best thing ever.

She just started this...but...she can go from a sitting position to a standing position!!! Although, she falls down in a couple seconds but's pretty amazing!!
Loves playing peek-a-boo, it's become one of her new favorite games
Loves swinging
Addicted to her pacifier
Loves sippy cups (although we are trying to transition her to a new one but she just won't give up her current Nuk one)
Will help with pulling out all the clean, folded laundry
Is not as shy as she use to be and isn't as afraid of strangers
Loves going for walks
Addicted to goldfish and puffs
She has a beautiful smile and a beautiful personality
Is way too smart
Does belly flops in the bath tub (and has never pooped in the tub) :]
Enjoys playing with every objec that is not a toy
