Emma – 8 Months

Tchutchuca! You are soooooooooooo cute!
I swear you are saying “Mama”! And to ME! Not anyone else, so we really really think you mean it when you say it lol.
It also seems like you say “boo, boo, boob” when you want milk, haha!

You are a food MANIAC! You want to eat everything, and you actually DO eat everything!
From baby food, to regular food, girl you eat it allllllllll!
And honestly, unless it’s spicy, peanuts or something with a lot of sauce or seasoning I let you try whatever I’m eating, and so far so good! Not only do you enjoy everything you also haven’t had a bad experience with any type of food yet. What a big girl!
Your all time favorite food is bananas!!! Banana everything.

You are army crawling and lifting yourself up on things.
You don’t really like to stand when we hold your hands though, but sometimes you do it.

You are screaming crazy, and shaking your head, you’re nuts now!
But it’s so funny and cute. You bang your hands on your chair, and Minnie Mouse and/or Puffs are all we need to calm you down if you’re upset about something. Oh bribery! 🙂

Mommy is looking forward to spending all summer at home with you!
We are going to have so much fun, and get super tan, haha!

I love you, my girl!

 Weight: 14.14 lbs
Height: 25.25 in
Eye Color: Greenish, Blueish. No matter what color, everyone that meets you always says your eyes are beautiful! And mama DEFINITELY agrees!!!
Hair Color: Brown
Diaper Size: Size 2
Clothes Size: 3-6 Months
Sleep: Sometimes you sleep through the night, and sometimes you don’t. Daddy is a sucker and can’t stand to hear you cry so he always brings you into bed with us. He falls right back to sleep, but I don’t because you want to be on top of me, and you want to nurse for comfort. I love it, but I’m not going to lie, sometimes when I’m really really tired and need to sleep because of work I get frustrated with the whole situation.. But then I just remind myself that this is temporary, that one day you won’t want to cuddle with me anymore.
Eating: 4oz of breast milk every 3-4 hours when Mommy is at work, then Mommy feeds you on demand when we’re together, in between you eat solids. You eat breakfast, then lunch, then dinner, with snacks, the rest is all breast milk. Mommy has been giving you more “grown up” food to try lately.
Likes: Crawling, playing, screaming at Daddy, eating, putting everything in your mouth and chomping on stuff, being held by Mommy, listening to Minnie Mouse’s voice, playing on your mat.
Dislikes: When you’re not 100% in deep sleep and we put you in your crib, you scream, you don’t seem to like it very much when Cooper licks you right in the face, when Daddy tries to take you from Mommy when you are tired, when Mommy puts you on the changing table when you just want to cuddle.
Milestones: You can crawl! Even though sometimes you choose to be lazy and just army crawl, you can feed yourself snacks pretty well, you are eating more “grown up” food
Firsts: First time at Disney! First time in the pool, Mommy’s first Mother’s Day – you gave me a Minnie Mouse Pandora bead.
Personality: You are getting wild and sassier every day. ♥

Emma’s Monthly Watercolor onesie is from Chicly Growing and can be purchased here.
It’s a whole 12 Month set. I like that they’re ironed on, and not stickers, so as she gets older she can’t rip them out! Love it!!!
