Hailey has had yet another cold! She seems to get better and then immediately get another illness. She moved from Infant Room 1 to Infant Room 2 recently…she’s getting so big! She still has no teeth to date and hasn’t started crawling as of yet. She will be on her belly and kind of try and rock a little on her knees, but that is about it. She does manage to push herself backwards a bit though. Her tongue never stops! She’s always sticking it out and twisting it in her mouth, she looks pretty darn cute. After she got over her cold she got pink eye! The poor girl just can’t stay healthy! Last up, Hailey turned 8 months old!
Sleeping – she is sleeping in her own room currently but still in that damn rock n sleeper! We really need to pull the proverbial plug on this, but it just isn’t happening! We had TWO good nights of sleeping all through the night when Justin happened to be out of town. Coincidence!? Other than that, she’s all over the board. Some nights she goes right back to sleep after her bottle and sometimes she’s up for 2 hours and won’t go back to sleep! She’s such a joy that way!
Eating – she’s been eating a lot of new flavors of food. She loves her baby Mum-Mums which are like little rice cakes for babies. She’s also recently tried Puffs which she seems to enjoy. She can pick up the little Puffs and 90% of the times get them into her mouth. She’s eating around 30 oz of formula a day and has baby food twice a day. She ate a small amount of strawberries one day and also got a small welt on her face that same day. I’m not sure if it was an allergic reaction or coincidence, but I’ll be a little more careful around strawberries for sure!
Clothing – she’s still in 9 month clothes but she’s so long! She also wears some 12 month clothes. 12 month tops are a little big on her but 12 month pants & jammies are perfect.
Stats – When I took her to the doctor for pink eye she weighed in at exactly 19 lbs on the dot! I don’t know her length or head circumference, but she will have a 9 month well appointment where I’ll find out.
Loves – she really enjoys pulling my hair out! I’ve googled, “Why does my baby pull my hair” and it basically says it is soothing to the baby!? She only does it when I am trying to get her to sleep so I think it is soothing to her, but it is the very opposite for me! She grabs underneath and just pulls! She loves flailing her limbs and seems so ready to crawl! I feel like it should be any day now, but who knows.
