Abigail by the Month! (8)

Abigail turned 8 months old on January 1, 2013!

Abigail, this is what you are currently doing:

  • You are now officially in 6 month clothes!
  • You're still in size 2 diapers!
  • We think you probably weigh around 15 or 16 lbs.
  • You're still doing great with your rice cereal!
  • Mommy had to stop nursing you this month! :( She was really sad, but you just wouldn't nurse very much because you were too distracted and since you weren't eating as much, Mommy couldn't produce enough to keep up with you. I still remember the week that I wasn't able to pump enough for you to eat a bottle a day at the babysitters. I cried and cried, but knew that I had tried my best and was thankful that I was able to nurse you for 8 months! Christmas Day was the last time you nursed. I considered it one of your Christmas presents to me! :)
  • We found out this month that your old babysitter Tiffany wasn't going to be able to keep you any more, so we had to search for a new babysitter. Mommy and Daddy had to do a lot of hard praying but we found another great babysitter that you love! The best thing is that you're right across the school from Mommy, so she can go see you whenever she wants!
  • Sadly, because you started going to your new babysitter Tracy's house, we took you out of the Lakeshore MDO. We were sad to leave John Thomas and your teachers, but knew it was for the best!
  • A new great blessing now that you are at Tracy's house is that you are consistently taking a 2-3 hour nap during the day! We are so excited. Mommy and Daddy can't get you to sleep that much at home though. Mrs. Tracy must have the magic touch!
  • You still sleep all though the night from 8:00 p.m until normally 6-7 a.m.
  • You still love to play with your toys and are doing a great job of sitting up on your own without a lot of help from Mommy and Daddy.
  • You still like to sit in your bouncer and feed yourself a bottle.
  • You are still screeching and talking all the time now!
  • You move and groove all the time. I think you got your Mommy's awesome dance moves! ;)
  • You LOVE to pull hair. If you see it and can get close to it, watch out because it's fair game!
  • You love to do what I call "love pats" when you're going to sleep. You have to be touching someone's face and you pat them all over their face. It's so funny!
  • You love to make Indian sounds with your mouth.
  • You've been a little bit fussy this month. I think you're teething, but no teeth yet!
  • You still love your bath time! You love to splash and get water all over the floor!
  • You still love riding in the car seat!
  • Your hands are still in your mouth ALL the time! You like to chew on everything now.
  • Your favorite things to play with are empty plastic water bottles, empty chip sacks, and plastic baggies!
  • You do not like to be laid down and left alone to play. You prefer to sit up with your toys.
  • You are still rolling from front to back all the time.
  • You're still doing a great job sleeping in your crib at night! 
  • This month you celebrated your 1st Christmas! We celebrated at home with Nana, Papa and Charity a few days before Christmas, and then spent a week in Shreveport for Christmas.
  • You got to meet your cousins Everett and John Parker and your Aunt Whitney and Uncle Jason for the first time!
  • You also have a new aunt on the way! Your Uncle Colby proposed to Hillary on December 30th!
  • You said your second word this month right before Christmas and it was "ma ma"! I was so excited and it was my favorite Christmas gift! I felt so special and it melts my heart every time you say it.
Abigail, you are my most precious gift that God has given me and I am so blessed that you are mine!
