8 Months {of Harper Lovin'}

HOLY MOLY! Has this month been awesome!!!

On May 29, 2012 Harper turned 8 Months old!!!!
{we were on vacay, so this post is a few days late}

My sweet baby girl is seriously growing too fast! But it has been so fun! I think each month I say it's been my favorite month, but it is just so neat to watch my sweet baby develop, grow, and explore!

Pics are SUPER hard to get these days! She's on the move!!!  Poor Dottie!

Weight: not sure - we don't go to doc. till 9 months, but we are thinking around 18 lbs

Diapers: size 2 Pampers, size 3 Nighttime Pampers at night

Food: Harper LOVES to eat!!! Is she her parent's child or what?! She will eat anything we give her, but she especially loves: peas, corn, sweet potatoes, macaroni & cheese puree, and pear/banana/apple blend.  She also loves Gerber Puffs. We do yellow foods M/W/F/S and green foods T/TH/Saturday.

Sleep: Harper currently naps 3 times a day, but we are hoping to transition to 2. She goes to sleep around 8:00 and I usually get her up around 6:30...but now that I am not working, we are hoping she will sleep until 7 or later like she does on the weekends.

Bottle: She still loves her bottle. She drinks around 26-28 oz. a day.  She is still on Alimentum. We've tried other kinds, but they just don't settle with her.  She also LOVES water. She loves drinking out of a soft sippy cup or a straw sippy cup.

Clothes: mostly 6-9 months, wears hats without a problem, beginning to pull on bows!!

New Things:
*she learned to crawl this month and does it fast!

  1. Oh my heck, she is seriously precious!! It is crazy how time flies and they grow SO fast!

  2. She had a busy month! I really like your idea of different color foods for different days, I had never thought of that before. The pictures are great, but they sure are hard to work through as they get older!

  3. I wish I could get these two girls together! It's so fun to get babies together to play. She is a cutie! Emily started pulling off her bows and hats too!!
