Brielle's Development [8 Months]

This past month, Brielle has continued to be a good eater. She can easily eat small chunks of food now, and she really likes all foods that we’ve tried, though she does like some more than others.

She can get up on all 4s now and rocks back and forth, and she pushes herself backwards well. She’s still not crawling, but she is trying!

She got her first tooth this past month! She got the bottom right tooth.

We’ve also begun teaching her some sign language (more and please) and how to wave hi and bye. She raised her hand up a few times to wave “hi.” J

Her schedule has been changing lately. She now nurses between 4 and 5 times a day and has finally started sleeping longer in the night in the last week! She now sleeps from 8pm-6:00am fairly consistently. She usually goes to sleep after this until 8am. She takes a nap at 9:30 or 10am (sleep is usually shorter in child care and longer at home) and nurses at 12pm. Her second nap starts between 1 and 2pm, depending on the day. She nurses again at 3:30 or 4pm and usually takes one more small nap around 6pm, and then she nurses at 7:30pm before bed. She eats food 3 times a day- sweet potatoes or squash that I made, banana chunks, baby oatmeal, or baby food.

Loves: stroller and wagon rides, her blanky and paci, being outside, bananas, cheerios, being held, baths, people, chewing on things, sitting in her crib with Sophie

Dislikes: Mommy leaving the room, short naps, being on her belly for long, being alone
