i don't know why it's so dang hard for me to keep up with these monthly updates. i completely skipped her seventh month... hashtag fail. i'm feeling okay though considering she still is in her eighth month for another week.
remi jayne at eight months old.
height: 28.5 inches
weight: 16ish pounds
three words can describe remi at eight months: mobile, clingy, and destructor.
taking pictures of her was quite the task. she wanted to be all up in my grill and touch the camera. she is a feisty one.
at eight months, remi loves:
-drinking out of straws
-swimming, tubs, splashing
-following brooks around
-pulling everything off the coffee table
-standing as much as possible
-when people clap for her
-putting every last crumb of anything she can find in her mouth
-if she's not being held
-anyone who isn't her momma
-being left in a room alone
-when the food is gone
this little lady, she is all over the place. she has been mobile since about seven months but this month she has really taken off. she crawls all over the place and pulls herself up on anything she can. her favorite thing to do is make a mess of the coffee table or book shelves. she is very curious and takes thirty seconds or so to look at all of the things before she chucks them to the floor.
she gets so proud whenever she pulls herself up or walks along furniture. she immediately looks to someone for acknowledgment and then bounces up and down in excitement. she loves to be clapped for and praised.
she has sprouted two little teethies and one coming in hot on the top. this girl does NOT take teething well. she is the most whiney, cranky baby when teething, so that makes life really fun. this stage is kind of hard with my remi girl. i frequently find myself saying, "it's a good thing you are so cute." she is extremely and i mean EXTREMELY attached to me. i can't be out of her sight or else she screams, i can't set her down for more than one minute. she won't let other people hold her without crying... basically she ends up crying a lot because i can't hold her 100% of the day.
now that she is a lot more mobile it is improving a bit and i can keep her entertained by allowing her to make all the messes, but i'm not gonna lie... there are times i want to give her away. haha
^^i know some of these are blurry and not quite in focus, but it's the perfect representation of ^^
remi righht now... always on the go.
even though she has been hard lately she is a pretty happy baby if everything is just her way. she smiles at everyone and gets excited to see people she recognizes. she laughs really easy and thinks brooks is the funniest thing ever. there relationship is so cute to watch.
remi is in size three diapers and wears clothes ranging from 3-12 months, she is still a little dainty thing with relatively no hair (thank goodness for hair bows and headbands). she has gotten in a nasty habit of taking 3 or 4 catnaps during the day, but sleeps like a champ at night (11-12 hours).
we love this little lady so much.. she is such a bright spot in our life.
and now, i must go for she is chewing up a styrofoam cup and eating rice crispies off the floor. #humanvacuumcleaner
