Sadie at Eight Months

I’m here with Sadie’s eight month update! Here’s what’s going on with Sader Tot this month 🙂

Baby in yellow gingham romper

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?!

Favorite Products Banana toothbrush, Pampers Baby Dry diapers, Shake and Sort Cupcakes, Little Green Frog book, Baby Ball Pit, Teething necklace, Stacking Rings, Baby Piano, and Bath Book.

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 ❤


Sadie at Seven Months

I’m currently writing this when Sadie is almost eight months, but hey–better late than never, right?! Here’s what has been up with little Sader Tot during her seventh month of life.

Growth Sadie is now a little over 15 pounds and is 26.5 inches tall.

Wearing Six and nine month clothes and size three diapers.

Eating Sadie is still mostly nursing, but enjoys a good cob of corn every now and then, which is funny because I was obsessed with corn while pregnant with her. She really likes to feed herself with a spoon and seems to enjoy yogurt and some purees!

Personality Our little gal is happy and silly. That’s the best way I’d describe her!

Nicknames Sader Tot, Tot, Totling, Tottle Berry, Tottle B, Todd, Toddy, and Mini Jimmy.

Sleeping Sadie is beginning to sleep a bit more at night! Or maybe we’re just getting better at sleep training, lol. We put her down around 7-8 pm and she usually wakes up at 11 pm and sometime between 2-4 am. Then she’s up for the day at 6 or 7 am!

She’s taking two or three naps a day of varying length. She’s doing much better with sleeping in her crib, too! We love looking on the baby monitor and seeing the crazy positions she ends up falling asleep in.

Looks Like Her dad! A few people have said she looks like me, but I think she mostly resembles Jimmy.

New Skills Sadie is sitting up really well and so close to crawling. She dances to music by shaking her head and moving her body and it’s absolutely adorable. She also is trying to climb everything! She has continued to babble more this month, too.

Likes Being in mine or Jimmy’s arms as much as possible, her toys, books, Baby Einstein videos, our pets, taking baths, putting anything in her mouth, sitting in her highchair, being in her carrier, and being outside.

Dislikes Being put in her car seat, having her head and arms put through clothing, and seeing me walk away from her.

Favorite Products Puppy stuffed animal, ball pit, baby carrier, stroller, school bus xylophone, stacking rings, shopping cart cover, and high chair.

Other Notes I’m not sure when right or left handedness is determined, but we think Sadie might be a leftie. She has two bottom teeth and we thought more were coming in earlier this month, but nothing yet. We’re thinking her eye color is hazel at this point. She has a little bit of separation anxiety with me, even to the point of not wanting Jimmy to hold her at times.

Last but not least, she met her cousin, Remi! My brother and his wife welcomed their daughter on Sunday and baby Remi is doing great! She had a full head of hair and Sadie was obsessed with touching it, lol!

I think that’s everything for month seven! It was a fun one for sure. We are so thankful to the Lord for Sadie and the blessing of her sweet little soul ❤
