Teagan is 8 months old!

8 months old and no complaints!

As you can see from the above picture, Teagan is still loving life and smiles 24/7.  Babbles of "dada" are heard nonstop and my constant requests of "say mama, Teagan! Maaaaa-maaaaa" are met with a response of "dada." Stinker.

We are 100% into finger foods and girlfriend cannot get enough in her mouth.  Pasta with marinara sauce, grapes, bananas with wheat germ, broccoli (she loves it, just like her sister did!), black beans with shredded cheddar...really I can't think of one food that she's refused.  We've slowly started introducing wheat again and it seems to be going better than in the past.  The most recent times we've had zero bleeding diaper rash and zero cranky baby syndrome.  Hopefully we're getting somewhere!

In true Teagan fashion of being happy in the current moment, she has absolutely no desire to crawl or pull up.  No interest in that nonsense.  And actually, she still can't stand to be on her belly for more than 1 minute, tops.  But she's starting to figure out that she can scoot around on her butt.  I'm willing to bet that butt-scooting will be T's preferred method of getting from point A to point B. 

I'm weeks late on this post and while sleep has changed for the better (squee to the squee!) I'll save that for the 9 month post. The 8th month greeted us with the typically every three hour wake up to eat--11pm, 2am, 5am.  Teagan is down for the night by 8pm and wakes around 7am.  Naps are still frequent, usually three, sometimes two a day, and range from 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. The crib is actually being used this go around for all naps.  Crib time is also happening until T's first wake up at night.  Yay for getting use out of our organic crib mattress (which did not happen so much with Parker...).  Often she sleeps on her side or belly.  If she happens to end on her back and stirs, feet holding is her method of comfort.

Get that flash outta my face.

We've had a pretty healthy month other than those pesky allergies.  Daycare is going great.  Teagan has adjusted very well to all of her friends and fab teachers.  Love those ladies and all they do! From crafts, to outside time, to bubbles, to hugs and love...not a day goes by that I'm not thankful to have such great caregivers in our lives. 

Life is good :) Happy 8 months, sweetie!
