8 Months Old

Adelyn has changed SO much since the last post I wrote about her. She was 6 months old and we were just starting to try to get her on a sleep schedule.

Well, it was only a couple of weeks later and she started taking 2 - 2 hour naps a day and sleeping through the night!! It seemed like such a hard thing but once I was able to stick to my guns and not go get her as soon as she whined, we were good to go. She goes to bed at 7pm every night and is up at 7am every morning.

She loves to stand! She will pull on on anything and just stand there, if she falls, she gets right back up. She has stood all on her own a few times but it is still easier to pull up on something. She cruises along the furniture a little and for some reason her crawling has changed. Instead of the typical crawl on all fours she crawls with one knee and one foot on the floor! It is very funny!

I still breastfeed her as well as give her baby food. She pretty much likes anything we've given her so far. She also loves snacking on Cheerios and those little puffy stars. She is now sitting in a high chair at the dinner table. For the last few months we had her in a Bumbo seat on the table but once she could pretty much just get right out of it, it was time to change!

She has signed "food" and "more food" a few times. We're still working on those but it is so fun to be able to communicate like that with her.

I love these fun pics that Jared snapped of her and I last Sunday after church...

She is just the happiest little baby! I couldn't be more thankful than I am for her. Just not possible! :)
