Mikayla – 8 Month Stats

Can’t believe my little peanut is 8 months old! Looking back, I never thought we would reach this age. lol. I forgot to post her 7 month stats (oops) and a lot has happened since 6 months!

Weight: 20 lbs.  Height: 28″ (estimate)

Size:  3 in diapers but growing out of them fast!  Size 9 month in clothes, some 9-12 month.

Eats: Stage 2 food three times a day plus yogurt, potatoes, oatmeal, cheese and avocado.  4 bottles at 6-7 oz each. 

Sleep:  UGH, lately her schedule has been inconsistent.  Bed around 7-7:30 and up between 5:30-6 on a good night. She will have maybe 2-3 nights a week like this and 1 or 2 nights where she will wake up at 4 and will NOT go back to sleep. Teeth? Cold? who the heck knows! We might have to tough it out and try the ferber method. After reading about sleep for babies, there is no reason for her to eat at 4am and she is simply waking up out of habit and not falling back asleep on her own, which she needs to learn how to do. I will post an update on this later. We were doing so well!

Favorite and least favorite food: Likes just about everything! I am going to try peas tonight since she hasn’t had them in a while and hated them last time.

Milestones: Lots of milestones! Starting to clap! Crawling around everywhere and standing up on EVERYTHING! She is taking a few steps around the ottoman too.

Looking Ahead: I am hopeful for better sleep and looking forward to her taking more steps!

  1. I love her grabbing the paper. How hilarious. we have had decent luck with ferber. It sometimes takes a few nights but it helps shake their body out of the new routine of waking. It is worth giving it a try.

  2. My little neice is too cute!!! Cannot wait to see her in 2 weeks!!! Does she cry when she wakes up at 4am. Dylan wakes up different times of the night and is usually happy. We just have to leave him and he iwll go back down evenually.

    • Yes, last night was rough (or should i say this morning) she was crying for about 15 minutes…hard crying and i didnt want to leave her since i think she has another tooth coming in on the bottom!

      • That is really hard!!! I think Dylan is getting more teeth too!! He was cranky Saturday and Sunday morning! I feel so bad for them!!!

  3. She’s getting so big! I love the paper grabbing pictures 🙂

    I’m sorry that sleep is being rough still. I hope it’s just teething and it passes soon for both your sake.
