I Don't Want to Go to Bed....

I would rather eat an apple!   I woke up on Saturday night and didn't want to sleep.  I think another tooth may be making an appearance, so Mommy & Daddy gave me an apple!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  We had a wonderful Valentine's Day!    

I got to play in my ball pit from Auntie Kari (mommy ordered more balls for me)!

I had lots of fun playing.

I'm not a huge fan of my antibiotic... which I started this weekend because I have a sinus infection.   Here I'm blowing raspberries with my medicine all over me and mommy!

We had a wonderful Valentine's Dinner... I had bananas & rice.   Mommy & Daddy had heart shaped pizza!   See those pretty flowers?   Daddy bought those for mommy.   Mommy and Daddy bought me a special valentine too!   Daddy even bought me my own flower!   I had a great Valentine's Day!

Will You Bee My Valentine?

Since this is my first Valentine's Day, Mommy thought it would be fun to make my own Valentine's for my grandparents, aunties & uncles, and some of my friends.   I had so much fun!  

We used a yellow stamp pad and my toe to make the body of a bee.  I didn't want my thumb going in the ink!

Once I had ink on my toe, mommy pressed my toe onto the paper.

We made a lot of bees!

Hard at work!

Look how my toe is pressing on the paper!

After mommy made my toe print into a bee, she stamped "BEE MINE"
On the back we wrote my Valentine's message.  Mommy thought it might be a good idea to put a picture of us making the Valentine's so people know it's my toe print!

Maybe my thumb will be my Valentine...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Guess who cut a tooth...

My first tooth cut through!
On our snow day yesterday I gave mommy quite the surprise... when I bit her (he he) it felt like little razors... that's because my tooth had finally cut through!   It's still very little and hard to see with the camera, however, my swollen gums, and razor little tooth are here!   I think I'm going to cut the tooth's friend soon too... because it's getting close to the surface... and causing me a lot of pain.    I'm very shy with who I let see my tooth, but mommy tried really hard to get it on camera!

8 Months Old!

I've upgraded to my tub without the safety bar!    What a big girl!  

Yeah for Eight Months!

I'm really interested in my blocks!

I love my blocks!

I wonder if I can spell my name????

Age - 8 months old

No Height and Weight Check this month... we don't see the pediatrician until 9 months!  I'm guessing she's around 20 lbs.

Diaper Size - 3

Clothing - Lila just started wearing Carter's 12 month ..  but she's also wearing 6-12 month clothes comfortably too from Old Navy and Gap.

Sleeping habits - Pretty much the same as the last few months.  We start our bed time routine around 6:30 p.m. after Lila has some "dinner".  After a bath and feeding Lila, we read three books, always ending with On the Night You Were Born. She is usually pretty sleepy and this month we only make it to the extra books 1/2 of the nights of the week!   She's still sleeping until anywhere in between 5:30-7:30 a.m.  This month we've had a lot more middle of the night sessions with Lila as she's teething.   After some cuddling and sometimes nursing and a fresh diaper, she goes back down.   She's also sleeps with a warm air humidifier to keep her room warm and help keep her healthy too!  She takes 2-3 naps a day... depending on how she's feeling!  She also can nap anywhere!  Her favorite place is napping on mommy or daddy.  She has also started "playing" more in her crib...  sometimes getting into some trouble!
In the "sleeper hold" with Pop Pop

Napping on Mommy

The Bears Playoffs game put me to sleep

Eating habits - We're up to three solid food meals a day.  She eats a mix of fruits, veggies, and cereals.   She's also gotten really good at feeding herself "puffs".  We've also been giving her apples in her mesh feeder, which makes her gums feel really good.  She's also still nursing in the morning, after work, and before bed and taking two bottles at Miss Sue's.  We also introduced her to juice this month, which she doesn't seem that excited about.

Favorite activity - Saturday morning swimming lessons!  She's also loves army crawling around the living room playing with her toys.

Cutest Moment of the Month - Kissing Baby E... she loves him!   She gets so excited to see him and shakes her hands and laughs... It's safe to say that she loves her cousin!
