The "Pey" Times || Eight Months

Wednesday, April 20, 2016
Hey Mommies! Man do I miss blogging but between my wedding and my future little sister in laws wedding coming up this week, it's been getting cray. Hopefully in May things will calm down some and I can put a bridal post together because let's face it, I have folders, snapshots and lots of pins of ideas for my perfect wedding. I also need some opinions because due to pinterest I have SO many different things I would like to do but might not be cohesive.

E i g h t  M o n t h s

Height: 28.5 in. 
Weight: 20lbs 6oz

Obviously my fave pic

Anywho, although this little miss hasn't grown length wise in awhile, that doesn't mean she hasn't been doing a lot of growing! Two pounds heavier since last month I feel like she is also leaning out a little now that I can't get her to sit still. I'm guessing this is the part where mommies lose weight because they are constantly entertaining/ running around with their little ones!

This was a close second...yes she likes to look like she just got caught!

Especially when it comes to breastfeeding, which I'm still doing exclusively yay!, she flails her arms and her feet try to dance on top of my head but can never make it. Speaking of, she also started loving to pinch and rub my other nipple while having the other, anyone else? Ya it was funny at first until her nails dig in and remind me how badly I need to cut them! Ah!

I also learned that when she's fussy and in desperate need of a nap, putting her directly on my boob is NOT, I repeat NOT the best solution because she will bite! She likes to do this followed by a smile and giggle. I swear one of these times I'm going to unintentionally push her aside because it hurts so bad I automatically flinch and pull her off yelling "No! GENTLE!". Oh the joys of breastfeeding but I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Milestones:

> CRAWLING! at 7 Months and 3 weeks she was off!
> Finding anything to crawl up to a standing position (hence the picture below)
> Mimics our facial expressions and tries to copy our sounds
> Knows what kisses mean and will gladly given you a slobbery open mouth kiss
> Reaching for me or for familiar people

I can tell this crawling stage won't last...

Likes:

> Babbling Mama only when she cries
> Listening to mommy and daddy read her books before bed
> Classical Lullabies (Baby Bach) music that I play over bluetooth on her speaker in her room, has been really working lately to keep her asleep longer. Ok not really, but I think she likes it! haha
> Facetime, seriously...She wants to see the front of my phone every time I'm talking to someone, kinda cute

Dislikes:

> Waking up to unfamiliar surroundings, She takes awhile to wake up just like her mommy.
> still not a fan of being in her car seat but at least she can hang a little longer than normal!

annnnnnd pose lol.

Super cute black and white heart bloomers: Hutton and Grey


Must Haves of the Month:

: T O Y S :

Fisher Price Classic Infant Trio: Bought these at 7 months and she loved the blocks and pouring them out of the pail. She also loves when I re-stack the colorful rings. The Xylophone on the other hand I think will come later when she doesn't just want to stick the yellow paton down her throat!






















Vtech Sit to Stand Walker: She now knows that she can crawl and push this thing so she is always on the go to find it and push it. She's still learning so it's more me following her around with safety hands around her.



B.Zany Zoo Wooden Activity Cube: Pey could NOT get enough of this thing, there is so much to do and she will definitely grow into to since she is just starting to pull herself up.



: P R O D U C T S :

Munchkin White Hot Safety Spoons: What I think is a good temp is sometimes still too hot, so I like these!



Bib Set by Kickee: These are so soft and Pey actually keeps them on because they are like soft tshirt material.

























I wanted to start adding these things because I wished I knew some popular toys to get her that worked as well as products, hope it helped!


Obsessed with those two teethes

Oh and cheers to our engagement shoot that we are having today! It snuck up real fast and we are definitely not as prepared as I would like but hopefully that will make it better! Can't wait to show you guys!
