Memorial Day 2015

Oh 3 day weekend you spoiled us. It was filled with a lot of red, white & blue, watermelon and sun!

Harlow's 1st time eating watermelon and she loved it!

It was also her 1st time in the pool. She loves bath time so I figured she would love the water.

The water was chilly but she didn't care!

I love this action shot: splashing water and legs kicking. She LOVED it! A true water baby.

Next up, Tangier for a whole week! Time to get packing!

8 months

Size: Size 3 diapers. Wearing size 9 months to 18 months. She wears 18 month dresses, because she's so long they fit really well.

Eyes: blue.

Hair: Blonde, wispy out of control hair haha. Nothing we do tames it.

Sleeping: Still taking 2 good naps a day. Goes to bed at 7:30 p.m. and wakes up at 6 a.m. to eat and goes back until 7:30/8ish. Has to have her blanket and tubee (pacifier) to sleep. At night we put her in a sleep sack and she uses her blanket to cuddle. 

Eating: Eats every 4/4.5 hours. Drinks 6 oz. without food. When food is involved she drinks 4 oz. This past month I've only been breastfeeding at night. Now that she's 8 months I plan to quit. I've always had to supplement with formula and now that I'm down to 1x a day, I'm really not producing a lot. LOVES veggies. Fruit not so much, which I think is weird. Fruit flavored puffs are a huge hit, they are a life saver when we are out to eat :) Her pincer grasp is great!

-Started saying MAMA again. That was her 1st word but disappeared once she started saying Dada. It's back!! :D
-Crawling backwards
-SO close to crawling forward, she gets on all fours but just bobs back and forth. That doesn't stop her though, she can make her way around the room by scooting, rolling, or crawling backwards. She also does the downward dog yoga position. It's hilarious and every time she does it we say "there's the downward dog."
-Pulls up on things but not to a full standing position. It looks like she's doing squats.
-Sitting up in the crib and pulls herself up -- we lowered it this week
-Claps hands
-When I say "who stinks?" you sniff :)
-Plays peekaboo with blanket

Loves: Veggies, bath time, yellow rubber ducky, blowing bubbles outside, blowing raspberries on her tummy, being tickled -- especially the rolls, Target (always a "chatty Kathy" when we go), sitting in the shopping cart watching people -- no stranger anxiety yet! Going 'bye-bye' -- whether it's grocery shopping, play dates, church, the park, or shopping she loves it all. Everywhere we go people talk to her and tell her how pretty she is :) I guess I would like that too! haha
Hates: Cleaning her face after she eats. When I don't feed her quick enough, piggy.

Words/Sounds: Mama, Dada, Hey!, Ninny (for milk).

I just have to say that these monthly pictures are getting harder and harder to capture, haha :)

Mother's Day 2015

Last Mother's Day I was registering for baby items at Target and this year Harlow is here! She is the best baby, seriously. And such a joy to be around, I am so proud to be her Mama. Being a mom is the best feeling in the world!

Joseph is not a fan of eating brunch out because he can make one just as good. And he really does. But I LOVE to eat brunch out, there's something about it. So that was my one request, brunch out. We went to our favorite local place, {RA} Bistro and it was amazing as always. 

We went during Harlow's nap time and she did SO good. We kept feeding her puffs and water from a straw and she was happy. Driving home we bragged about her and said "we seriously have the best kid." haha

Joe gave me the day off so I enjoyed a long afternoon nap and ended the evening with a trip to Starbucks for happy hour and Target with the family (my request :). He also gave me this backpack, I'm so excited!!! I've been wanting it and plan on using it as my baby bag. Goodbye bulky baby bag!

I hope all you fabulous mamas had a wonderful relaxing day!
