8 Months Old

Kailey turned 8 months old on November 5th! I can't believe that she is only 4 months away from turning 1...WHAT?! She is such a little joy and we just love her so much. She has 2 words under her belt already, "uh-oh" and "dada". It's so fun hearing her little voice say those words, even though she chose dada before mama!!! She has been eating more finger foods lately. Her favorites are definitely the little puffs and she practically has a heart attack every time I go to pour some out on her tray! She also loves to eat green beans, corn and rice! As far as baby food goes though, she is my pickiest eater yet!! She basically likes her rice/oatmeal cereals and will eat basically all of her veggies. However, when it comes to fruit, that's a WHOLE different story! She is not a huge fan of anything really that has a sweeter taste to it. She will eat maybe half of the container at a time. She is starting to come around to peaches and pears, but that's about it. When she gets a taste of the dreaded flavors of fruits or even the other meal combo ones she has definitely gotten the shutter/shiver thing and disgusted facial expressions down!! haha It's pretty funny!  Her sleeping habits are pretty good as well, she will take 3-4 naps during the day and lately has only been waking up once at night. Some nights she will still wake up maybe 2 times, but for the most part, she has gotten pretty good at sleeping.

She is not a huge roller yet, although last weekend she did roll from her back to her stomach and vice versa a couple times. And she can scoot herself backwards when she's on her stomach and has gotten pretty good at spinning around when she is on her back. She will be mobile in no time now!! We do a lot of face time with daddy, and she LOVES it!! Technology is so nice these days to still be able to see someone so easily on the phone when they are so far away! Parker and Tyler are pretty entertaining to her most of the time and she loves to watch them. Bath time is also a fun event for her. Her legs start kicking before she is even in the tub when I turn the water on! She definitely gets excited to be in the water...takes after her momma!

She is overall just a really happy baby and it's so fun to watch her grow and learn new things! We love you Kailey!!
