8 months rocks!

Woop Woop!  Somebody is now 8 months old!  That's right folks...Aubrey Lane is now 8 months old!  Where is the time going?  I swear...time is absolutely flying by.  Months seem like mere days now that Miss Priss is here!  
I'd say 7-8 months has been the month of the most developmental advancements.  It seems like this month has been one of many firsts!  Aubrey Lane is crawling like a champ, I'm talking flying across a room in mere seconds!  Don't dare turn your back on Bre or you will lose her in a heartbeat!

Aubrey has started on little finger foods like bananas, sweet potatoes, avocados and of course we still love those puffs! 

Aubrey has also started throwing little fits.  Yes indeed...that is a first I'd rather not be introduced too.  We are upping our prayers over Aubrey at night.  "Lord, please help Aubrey to be sweet, kind, gentle and OBEDIENT!"  Ha! 
Aubrey Lane, I'm not sure your exact weight this month but I know you are in a size 2 diaper, 6 month clothes, some 6-9 months as well.   (Side note...this white onesie is the same exact onesie I've been putting on her for her monthly pictures since she was 1 month old! It's a newborn size but I keep stretching it to make it work for pictures...Ha...perhaps it's time to invest in a new white onesie!) You just started wearing shoes this month and you are not too sure if you like them.  Half the time those shoes end up off and in your mouth!

We got your ears pierced this month and it wasn't bad at all!  I LOVE your little earrings and I think you look even more adorable!  
You are still a champion nurser and I NEVER in a million years thought we would make it this far with breastfeeding.  I am beyond thankful we have had such a great support system and have made it this far!  What a blessing for both of us!  

You still nurse about 5 times a day and are slowly moving to two solid feedings a day as well.  I don't want to rush the solids, so we are still taking that at your own pace.  You love any solids that I give you, especially cereal and yogurts.  You actually prefer the store brand baby food over what I made homemade (just like daddy...nobody likes my cooking!!!)

You also take a sippy cup, but mostly just enjoy flinging it from one side of the room to the other!
This is the first month in our new home and you are loving your new room and fresh carpet!  You are having a field day with all the space and have only hit your head on the tile floor about 500 times! I never knew how fast a baby can flip and fall over!  Ha! I promise we are learning!  

You are still a great sleeper...from about 8:00 at night until about 5:00 in the morning...then you nurse and go back to sleep until 8:00.  Occasionally you will wake up and need the noonie, but for the most part you sleep through the night!

You still take 2 naps during the day usually for about an hour and a half each. You love your crib and don't usually fight me at nap times. 
You have definitely found your voice this love to squeal at the top of your lungs...conveniently when I try and make a phone call!  

You still don't really say any words just "ba-ba-ba-ba" and occasionally daddy thinks you say "da-da" but I'm not convinced. 
You are sitting up unassisted and love to sit and play with everyday items such as measuring cups, water bottles, spatulas and remote controls.

This is the face I am constantly of things being shoved into the mouth quickly before mommy can take it away! Ha Ha!

Oh Bre...what a fun month we have had with you!  You are awesome and continue to amaze us with your growth and development!  We love you so much and adore your little smile.  Hugs and kisses! 
Happy 8 months baby girl!
