Happy 8 Months of Lilli (yesterday)!
6 Months – July Official Stats (which is actually 6months, 1 wk) – 25 3/4 inches long (50th percentile!), Weight: 15 lbs, 8 ounces (40th percentile), Head: 75th percentile
7 Months – Unofficial Statistics: 16.2 lbs, 25 3/4 inches long (probably not right, because measuring her is “like trying to catch a butterfly”)8 Months – Unofficial stats: Weight – 16.5 lbs, Length 26.25-26.5 inches, you are a rapidly moving target.
At 8 months you have become our wild child. A LOT has happened this past month! You cut two teeth, and MAN ALIVE did you let us know about it! You’ve also been truly crawling for about 3 weeks, and are into everything! You want nothing more than to stand on your own, and you practice and pull up on anything and everything both stationary and moving all day long. You are absolutely persistent and determined – you fall a LOT but you get right back up and keep trying. You own the accident reports in your class (really not a record we are going for!) You’re a great eater and you must have inherited your Dad’s metabolism (lucky you!). Your favorite foods are still squash, peas, and apples, but this month you’ve become a carnivore and have started eating the chicken and turkey baby foods. Your favorite toys are your hammer (thanks again for busting my lip with it last weekend!), your Sing along Stage, your books, your horsey and your police duck. Your favorite person to see every morning is Pippin (thanks!). And this month you’ve added Dadda to your vocabulary, much to a certain someone’s delight. I do have to agree that it’s pretty stinking cute to watch you say it – it starts out as this funny little whisper until you know you have it and just let it loose! I can’t wait to see what the next month holds for you!
