Melea! Just like that you turned 8 Months on the first. Life with you has been so sweet and full of joy! You’ve brought so much to our family and I am so glad you’re here. I’ve loved watching you grow and learn. You’re exploring and showing us more of your personality. I love seeing you with your brother and how you snuggle in close in the middle of the night. Most of the day, you’re on the move and most everyone comments how smiley you are. We’ve moved into our new house and have been filling our days with summer fun (and work!). Here’s an update from the last two months.
What we have learned…Life is full and we are so thankful to have two kids in our house! Siblings are so fun and even when we may be stretched thin there is so much I love about this season. Our new house is great and a lot of work!
What we are enjoying…playing! Reading lots of books. Having our own space! Our deck! Going on runs.
What are struggles…finding time to do all the necessary and fun things that come with summer!!
Most exciting milestones…crawling like crazy, two little bottom teeth, pulling up, attempting standing, and eating more new foods!
What Melea seems to like…crawling, standing, grabbing everything, chewing, trying to get Asher’s hair, wrestling Boaz, being held, and snuggling in mom and dad’s bed.
Dislikes seem to be…not being able to get the toy she wants and when people leave the room.
What sleep looks like…she still probably takes 2-3 naps and still waking up to eat or snuggle. Bedtime is probably around 8:30-9:30 and lately she’s been waking up before Asher and then napping around when he gets up around 8:30-9. We finally transitioned to the Nuna and that went fairly well!!
She’s eating…anything and everything! She’s tried lots of new foods and we keep introducing new ones. Still doing baby led weaning!
Who we have seen…we had two parties for Asher at our new house one for each side of the family! We also went to the cousins weekend at Ruth and Michael’s where Melea had fun going in the lake.
At the last doctors appointment…she’s still rocking the petite category! She’s around the 8-10% for weight and weighed 14 lb 10 oz at her doctor’s appointment. She’s wearing 6 and 9 month clothing. Wearing size 3 diapers and getting back in some cloth diapers! The cloth are finally fitting nicely.
