Eve's Eight Months Old!

Weight: not exactly sure, but about 17 lbs?

Clothes & Diapers: Eve is wearing size 2 diapers (but could easily wear size 3, we just have 2 packs of size 2 left that I want to use before going to size 3), and anywhere from 3-12 month clothes (haha, quite the range, I know... but it's been super warm this spring, so her 3 month clothes are cool, and her 12 month clothes are cool... so we mix it up!  The 3 month outfits are just about too short for her, but the 12 months are pretty roomy.  6 months fit best, but the 6 month hand-me-downs are winter clothes... ahhh #SecondChildProbs)

Eating & Sleeping:   She eats about 5.5-6 oz at 7, 11, 4, and 9.  I still nurse her for the first feeding, then pump and bottle feed the rest (boo).  She has been sloooowww to pick up purees, so I just started giving her finger foods to entertain her while we ate.  She ate an entire half of a piece of toast this past Saturday for breakfast... with her two little teeth.  Haha!  For pureed food, she has had cereal, peaches (her fav!), green beans, squash, apple sauce, bananas, sweet potatoes, carrots, and pees.  She likes the peaches, and that's about all.  She also has had yogurt (which she gobbles down).  For finger foods, she has had a lot... pasta, mac & cheese, a little bit of pork chops, toast, strawberries, potatoes, green beans, crackers, puffs, bananas, corn, grits, bread, and probably a handful of other stuff that I can't recall right now.  :)  It sounds like a lot, but she mostly tastes the food and spits it out.  She's been actually eating a bit better in the past week or so.  She takes a morning nap and an afternoon nap for about 1.5-2 hours each, and she usually takes a evening nap after dinner and before bed.  We wake her up to put her PJs on and feed her and then she sleeps from 9ish-7ish.

Mood:  She is super sweet, and becoming more social.  She has been babbling more and giggling... and she loves when her sister plays with her.  She had stranger-danger fright for a little bit, but she seems to be getting over that now!

Likes: Mommy!  And she loves her sister, daddy, peaches, being tickled, snuggling a blanket, playing with Ava Kate, swinging outside, riding in the Tula, and reading books.

Dislikes: Getting her face cleaned

Milestones: Started drinking water from a sippy cup, first time sitting in the shopping cart & restaurant high chair, she's inching forward (not a crawl, but a pull with her arms and push with her toes kinda thing), she waves (but not consistently), she's thinking about clapping, first finger foods, first round of pink eye (& second, ugh), learning what "no" means, first time at the river, first time with her toes in the blow-up pool, and she's no longer the "Baby Cousin" because Judah was born last Thursday - the 13th! :)

Sentimental Things Mommy Wants to Remember: I love watching Eve and Ava Kate play together while I'm doing something (pumping, cooking, etc)... I know they'll be the best of friends and it's so sweet to see their little relationship developing.

Practical Things Mommy Wants to Remember: If one child gets the pink eye, EVERYONE in the family starts drops... otherwise we just pass it around for a few weeks... even if the doctor won't give the other kid drops... just use the eye drops for both kids!  Sanitizing the house 45 times in 2 weeks blows.  Also, potty training takes FOREVER and it'll be my biggest accomplishment when AK has no more accidents... that and breast feeding despite all the hurdles with Eve.  Shew.
Not a lot of change in appearance this month! :)
Comparison between Ava Kate & Eve at 8 months.  One is chunkier than the other, lol!
