Emery turned 8 months old on Easter! She is so much fun and currently getting into anything she can!
Emery continues to take 2 naps a day….one in the morning around 9:00 or 9:30 and the second one around 1:30/1:45. She still goes to bed at night around 7:00 and has been sleeping until 6:30-7:30 in the morning! She sleeps with about 6 pacifiers and is always holding on to them….I'm not sure how we're going to take them away!
We are slowly changing her schedule…..we're adding breakfast and taking away her mid-afternoon bottle. She loves food and rarely refuses anything. She had her first taste of ice cream (and she won't be getting anymore anytime soon) on our way back from Easter to try and calm her down and entertain her on the drive back. It worked for a good 10 minutes and then she was back to crying. She has done a great job drinking water out of her sippy cup, but has not been a big fan of drinking her milk out of it. As of last month (month 7), she stopped nursing on her own, but is still getting all breastmilk from a bottle.
Emery loves getting into her siblings' toys. She isn't exactly crawling quite yet, but she is able to get where she wants to go. She will get up on all 4's, rock back and forth, lunge forward and do it all again until she gets what she wants. She is into everything and grabbing at anything she can get. Emery loves when we sing to her. She loves listening to the music in church and will often start yelling/singing loudly when the music comes on.
Connor continues to be her best buddy! He makes her laugh all the time and she is constantly squealing and laughing at him. She is occasionally giving us kisses, doing "how big," and "peek-a-boo." Baths are still her favorite time of the day and she often starts squealing when she hears the water going.
We hit a huge milestone this past weekend…..she enjoyed being around my parents! And she went to 3 different friends without shedding a tear! This is huge!!
Emery, you are such a sweet, sweet girl! Happy 8 months!!
