Kate ~ 8 months!

Here we are again... another month has flown by for Miss Kate.  She is still the happiest baby, only crying when she is tired or hungry.  She is definitely mobile.  She doesn't do the traditional crawl, but does a reach and pull that gets her where she wants to go....especially on hardwoods!

8 Months!!
She is still exclusively breastfed and I am starting to introduce more foods.  She will eat baby food, but really likes when I give her big people food.  She likes - toast, eggs (yolk), sweet potato, broccoli, banana and carrots.  I bought a steamer bag of mixed veggies that we will try this week.

She has tried sippy cup and hasn't really caught on. Sometime if I help her, she just keeps it in her mouth, but doesn't swallow.

Still on the petite side.  She can still wear the majority of her 3-6 month outfits from Gap. Footed PJs are 9 months and most everything else is 6-9 months.  I haven't set the kids up with new pediatrician since we have moved - need to get on that! Melisa (our good friend and ped. back home) said we could come back for her 9 month and M and C's 5 year.

She loves bath time.  She likes to splash more than anything and gets mad when bath time is over!

Kate loves when we go to the park.  Swinging always brings a smile!

Still working on sleeping through the night :/.  We were starting to make progress before we moved, now she is back waking every 3-4 hours.  I said I was going to make her start CIO, but that hasn't happened yet. She is a good napper.  She usually takes 2-3 naps a day lasting around two hours each time!

She is very loved by her brother and sister.  Claire can't keep her hands off of her... wants to hold her, pick her up, hold her standing up.... 24/7.  I try to tell Claire that Kate needs to learn to do things herself, just the way she did.

Absolutely love my little punky punk more than anything.  She is such a blessing to our family.
