12 Months of Ella// Month 8

Sunday, June 4, 2017

Weight: Maybe 18 pounds? Either way she is heavy haha.

Height: 28 inches?

Diapers: Size 3

Clothes: She's mostly wearing 6-9 months and 9 months.

Sleeping: She is down to two naps a day most days, but she also sleeps through the night most nights so I'm mostly okay with it. She's getting better and better at consistently putting herself to sleep.

Eating: Up to 6 ounces at a time. She is terrible at holding her own bottle because she just wants to roll over and crawl away rather than eat. She eats purees at least once a day and she loves to snack on yogurt melts, puffs, and baby cheetos throughout the day. She will also eat small bites of our food. She absolutely loves anything that isn't formula while she thinks that formula is just alright. She will not drink cold formula at all.

Milestones: Sitting herself up from laying down, crawling, pulling herself up to standing, she still doesn't have any teeth

Likes: Peek-a-boo/ puffs/ yogurt melts/ antagonizing her brother/ being held/ toys that light up or play music/ crawling so that she is right under my feet

Dislikes: Being alone/ face being wiped/ crawling in the grass

Personality: Ella learning to crawl has really shown her adventurous side. She has to go everywhere she can. She loves to crawl over to Hudson and try to climb on him. She's happiest when she is moving around with you playing with her. She doesn't like people she doesn't know when she is tired or sometimes at all.

I asked Hudson to give Ella some of her yogurt melts.
He went and got the container of yogurt out of the fridge for her.
Either way it kept her quiet and entertained. 
I was sitting at the counter getting some work  done, and I looked over to see her standing along the couch for the first time. 
Truthfully, it about broke my heart because it's another step closer to walking, graduation high school, and moving out..

  1. Holy cow, lots of milestones! Ada is like nowhere near crawling. She'll do pushups, and she rolls all over the place, but no crawling, let alone sitting herself up from laying down or pulling up on things!
