Molly Frances // 8 months old

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

One of these days I will kick myself in gear for months 4-7, but I'm just gonna go ahead and throw this one out there anyway.

Molly is 8 months old!



What an absolute joy. She has the easiest nature. I always say she is just happy to be there, and it's really true. Any smiles or attention she gets are always welcome, as she is very engaging with everybody. She is getting pretty busy in her play endeavors, and is very good at playing by herself. She loves playing near her big sissy, and especially with sister's toys (namely, anything to do with the play kitchen).

Big strides between months 7-8: first teeth came out, the bottom two simultaneously! Not without some heartache though (and Tylenol). Other developmental milestones she just knocked out this month: non-commando-crawling, pulling up, and even cruising while pulled up! She is also really into clapping. Break my heart, why don't ya.

Molly wears 6-12 month clothing, size 3 diaper (about to be size 4), and still nurses/gets 8 oz bottles 4x/day (depending on if it's a workday or not). She also made strides in the eating solids dept. this month...is definitely eating dinner every day, and started eating at school too. She likes the organic puree pouches so that has been nice. I lightly puree the food we eat if I actually cook something for dinner and she has been pretty non-picky once she got over the mechanical hump of actually being able to eat.

Sleeping: definitely sleeps all night, between 11-12 hours/night. YES. Naps at school are atrocious. Too curious about what's going on. But on the weekends, she'll nap between 45 min-hour in the mornings and 2 hours in the afternoon.

We are all smitten over this little one! Love watching her grow.
