Mae is 8 months old!

Mae is getting so big! I can't believe she is 8 months old already! 

  • She's still taking 2 naps a day (and will for awhile now, I hope!). She's up for the day around 7, naps around 9 (for 1-1.5 hours), naps around 1:30 (1-1.5 hours), and goes to bed around 6:30-7. She's still nursing 4 times a day (morning, after naps, and bedtime). 
  • Her night sleep is still a bit all over the place. Some nights she just wakes once, in the early morning to nurse, some nights she's crying before I'm even in the bed. Fortunately, she'll either fuss back to sleep or will settle with just a few cuddles from Jared. 
  • She is babbling a lot! She's saying "dadada" most of the time and has babbled something that sounds like "hi!" a few times when she sees herself in the mirror.
  • She is a clapping girl now and will clap when she hears music or when I say "clap your hands, Mae!". She also waves at times, especially when she sees herself in the mirror! We got home from being away a few days while Jared was hunting and she started waving the second we walked in the door. I guess she was glad to be home! 

  • She loves to eat! She is having 2 meals at the table now. I hope to add the 3rd meal this month. It's a bit time consuming to fix 3 plates, hurry and eat my food, then clean Mae up (she's messy!). She likes bananas, oranges, green beans, peas, sweet potatoes, toast, and more!  

  • She is an active girl! She pulls up on everything. I keep a plastic bin of dry rice and beans for Arabelle and Bo to play in under the school table. She LOVES to crawl under the table and get on top of that bin.

  • She's also beginning to cruise along the sofa and around her activity table. 

  • She still doesn't have any teeth!
  • She's in a size 3 diaper and 9 month clothes. 
  • She loves to look at herself in the mirror after her bath!
  • She is always SO happy after her bath! 

  • She got stuck under the coffee table last week....

  • She's a long happy girl!!

  • Here's a comparison of each kid at 8 months old...Arabelle, Bo, then Mae
