8 Months!

This past month has been a whirlwind of excitement! Addison is so much fun and we just love her so much.
Fun facts from the month:
  • Started crawling at 7 months 1 week
  • Pulling Up
  • Can go to a sitting position on her own
  • Says mama and dada
  • Other sounds are baba, eh, ssssssssssssssss, grunting and a fierce growling sound
  • Finally figured out the jumperoo
  • Sleeping though the night 7:30pm to 7:00am
  • Still only have the two bottom teeth but I think more are coming soon.
  • Nap twice a day for about 1-2.5 hours each time
  • Sign language is not going well, probably because Mommy is so inconsistent
  • Love the outdoors
  • Started going to the park... loves to swing
  • Experienced her first real snow
  • Started swimming lessons
  • Loves standing up... balance is getting so much better and she does the walking motion when you hold her hands.
  • Had a long overnight stay at Grandpa and GG's and did so well!
New foods she is eating:
Green beans, banana, mango, zuchinni
I am excited about the 8th month because we can start feeding Addison chopped up pieces of meat. I never could stomach pureeing animal flesh and the store bought stuff smelled like dog food.

Buns Up

Last week I went to wake Addison up from her nap (yes I know I am crazy) and found her with her buns up. I thought it was too cute not to share.

It's Official!

Addison is crawling! She started on Thursday evening and has progressed more and more every day! I think she loves being able to crawl to me when she needs me or going to get a far away toy that she wants to play with. Poor thing has rug burn on her knees, not sure what to do about that. We were not quite ready for this stage even though I knew it was coming. Outlet plugs and cord covers are on their way, we will also be rearranging some furniture to limit access to cords. Needless to say our Roomba will be working in overdrive keeping the floors clean. I will get a good video of her crawling later today and will post it on the blog.
