Lillian: Eight Months

Height:  26.5"

Weight: 21 pounds 6 ounces
Diaper Size: Still in size 4's

Clothing size: We have officially moved up to size 9mo. However her Thanksgiving dress was a 12mo size and she was about to bust out of it. Baby clothes sizing is SO weird!

Nicknames: Still calling her bug.  

Health: This month has been good. She is FINALLY starting to actually teeth so a few low grade fevers but thats it. 

Sleep: Still sleeping through the night (thank goodness). Naps are a different beast though. Some days she will take a 2 hour morning nap in her crib like a champ, but other days we're lucky if she gets a 45 minuet nap. So its hit or miss for sure.  

Eating: She gets four 8oz bottles throughout the day (sometimes she only drinks 6oz which is ok), and two meals of baby food. One around 9am and the other around 6pm. We have tried more solid food but home girl will not chew to save her life and ends up half choking so we'll try again later.  

Favorites: Pointing... She points at everything. With her right hand, with her left hand, and with both hands at the same time! Clapping is also a favorite. As soon as you start singing "if you're happy and you know it..." she starts clapping like crazy. Her favorite thing right now is her deer stuffed animal. She picked it out at Target and hasn't let it go since.

Milestones: Over the last week Lillian has started saying "dada" and Tyler loves it! She also has been a daddys girl lately (she literally started crying when he handed me to her yesterday), while he loves it, I'll admit I'm kinda jealous. She also has mastered arm crawling. I'm not sure if she will ever actually crawl because she gets around so good just army crawling.

Praying for all you mama's

Its now 8:21... Lillian is still asleep (kinda) and I'm letting her sleep as late as she wants which will probably mean no nap today but whatever. The whole point of this is that I'm terrified of daylight savings time. My sweet girl is going to be wanting to go to bed at 7 instead of 8 and waking up at 6:30 instead of 7:30, and this mama isn't prepared for that.

Do any of you seasoned mama's out there have any tips for dealing with daylight savings time?
