Well, here we are… late… again, haha! Everly turned 8 months old the day after Christmas. I’ll be planning her 1st birthday before I know it!
Everly has transitioned to our new home and new routine with ease – she continues to be the HAPPIEST and easiest baby ever! Seriously. I really don’t know how I lucked out with such an incredible little lady!
She’s still not sleeping through the night, but all it takes is a diaper change and quick nurse to get her back to sleep. I’ve finally succeeded in getting her to take naps in her crib (something I never achieved with Eleanor), and it’s been great for the whole family. Eleanor gets some 1-on-1 time, and Everly is better rested.
It’s getting easier and easier to get out and do things as a family of four – you guys, 8 months is FUN!
At 8 months Everly…
…weighs ??? and wears 9 – 12 month clothes
…smiles constantly to show off her 4 teeth
…loves trying new foods
…wakes once per night to eat
…crawls everywhere (with a preference for sitting under tables)
…can go from sitting to crawling and vice versa
…babbles more and more (mostly “bop bop bop”)
…enjoys rummaging through the toy food from the play kitchen and “taste testing” each piece
…is a total mama’s girl
…has the best sputtery laugh
…makes a beeline for outlets and power cords (and speeds up when she’s told “no” – little stinker)
…loves swimming and taking baths
…brings so much JOY to our whole family!
