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!
