8 Months Old
Kate is 8 months old today! She is still a mama's girl, but she is getting better at letting other people hold her...for a minute or two. She has two bottom teeth. She loves to eat anything she can pick up and feed herself, so if you have any suggestions on what to feed her that is soft and she won't choke on let me know! Right now I mostly feed her bread and Gerber Graduates puffs. She sits up by herself and she can scoot herself forward when she is on her stomach by digging her toes into the floor. I used to be able to lay down with her on my bed to get her to sleep, but now she insists on scooting herself over the edge, so now I need a new plan to get her to sleep. Kate is starting to babble "mama mama" over and over again when she is upset. She loves to stand up and she is cruising a bit...she may walk before she crawls! There are many times when I try to sit her down on the floor and she stiffens her little legs to stand up instead. She likes to walk while we hold on to her hands. She loves to pull her siblings hair and scratch our faces. She has a cute growl and squeal. She would eat a whole stack of paper each day if I let her. It's not fun to change her diaper anymore, she's too wiggly! She is sadly outgrowing the infant cuddling stage and moving toward the active baby stage.
