Lexie's 8 month update

These monthly updates are going waaayyyy too fast for my liking!


What size clothes is she in? 6-9 are definitely a bit tight now so mostly 9-12 months!

How much does she weigh? 19lb 5oz 2 weeks ago!
 
How many bottles/ounces does she drink? Still only taking 5oz each feed. She has 3 bottles a day with her meals and one or 2 bottles through the night
 
How is weaning going? She's on 3 meals a day now and I'm introducing more finger food though most is going in around and straight back out again! She's not liking lumps much!!
 
How does she sleep day and night? She naps in the morning and again in the afternoon, she's definitely dropped the amount of daytime naps she needs in the last month. She is waking quite a bit in the night, approximately every 3 hours again but settles within 10 minutes after having a bottle.
 
Any new milestones? She has managed to sit herself back up from laying down a few times this month and has started crawling! She has also started holding her own bottle sometimes.
 
Any teeth yet?  Yes! This morning I noticed you could see a line but couldn't feel anything however this afternoon I can just about feel it too! She has really suffered with hot red cheeks recently now we know why! 



Crawling yet? She has literally just started in the last few days, here's a video taken yesterday!
 
 
What's our daily routine like? Wake around 6am have a bottle, school run then breakfast, then nap. Lunchtime - she has lunch then around 1pm a bottle, another nap then school run, 4pm dinner then bath, bottle at 6pm then bed about 6.30pm. This month she has starting waking up to 3 times in the night again!
 
What's she's loving this month? Touchy feely books, playing peeka a boo and she is also a proper daddy's girl at the moment, she also loves singing and music so we have started going to Musical Minis music classes now
 
Any big changes this month? Night waking have increased, bottles decreased but solid food increased.
 
Hair colour changed? It's started growing so no bald spots at the back now and is still going a little bit darker
 
Eye colour changed? Still a beautiful navy coloured blue

  9. Oh she is gorgeous! Finn is nowhere close to crawling at 7 months but he has started waking in the night again which I am finding tough! Hopefully once Lexie is on the move a bit more she will tire herself out!
