I’m here with Sadie’s eight month update! Here’s what’s going on with Sader Tot this month 🙂
Growth We haven’t been to the pediatrician to have her measured, but I’d guess she’s around 16 pounds and 27 inches tall.
Wearing Six and nine month clothes and size three diapers. We switched to Pampers Baby Dry diapers for overnight and yay for no more leaks and washing sheets every single day!
Personality Sadie is so silly and fun-loving! She’s always happy to do whatever I’m doing and goes with the flow of our little family.
Eating Still mostly breastmilk! I need to do better about feeding her solids more often. I was super pumped about it when she turned six months, then I realized how much work it is.
When I first started nursing Sadie and we struggled with so many issues, I couldn’t wait to start solids. Now I’m like can I just nurse her till she’s 16?
Nicknames Sader Tot, Tot, Totling, Tottle Berry, Todd, Toddy, and Mini Jimmy.
Sleeping Sadie slept through the night once recently and it was glorious! It hasn’t happened since, but I’m holding out hope for the future lol. She goes to bed between 7:00 and 8:00 pm and is up a few times in the night, and then up for the day between 6:00 and 7:00 am.
Naps are all over the place, but she usually takes three in a day ranging from 30 minutes to an hour. Also, she sleeps with her little bum in the air.
Looks Like Mostly her dad, but maybe me a little bit 🙂
New Skills Sadie has been crawling! She would rather stand than crawl, but she does crawl when she wants something badly enough. She babbles va-va-va now and definitely knows her name.
Likes Being in my arms, standing, trying to walk, our pets, being outside, swimming, going on walks, swings, sitting in shopping carts, her grandparents, and other kids and babies.
Dislikes Being changed and being put in her carseat. She arches her back, cries, and tries to wiggle away. Do any fellow parts have tips?!
Other Notes Sadie went swimming for the first time and loved it. We also discovered that she adores having her nose suctioned with the bulb syringe. We crack up almost as hard as she does over that!
I think that about wraps it up for month eight. Sadie is such a joy and becoming more fun each and every day! We’re so thankful for the blessing of being her parents ❤
