Leni- 8 Months

12 months all the way!

Leni caught another cold this month but it was pretty mild.  Besides a runny nose, it came and went with no other problems.

I finished up pumping about half way through this month, hooray!!! Leni continued on with Similac Supplementation and didn't skip a beat.  We are still at 4 bottles/day: 3- 7 ounce bottles and the last bottle has 8 ounces.  

Solid foods are still going strong.  Some days Leni chows down and other days, she doesn't seem too interested.  Picking up yogurt bites and puffs kept her entertained when going out to eat this month.  Leni is also a pro at the straw sippy cup now.

This was such a fun month with little to no crying involved!  Leni has started using her voice, aka, yelling when needing something rather than crying.  

Another awesome month of sleep!  Leni goes down anywhere from 7:05-7:20 and we get her up every morning at 7:30am.  Leni takes 3 naps a day: 9:30-11:00 and 1:00-3:00.  The catnap is still going strong and starts around 5:15.

This month was the month that switched from playing with her own toys to everything else in the house.  Leni is on the move so she only plays with her own toys for a little bit.  Then it is on to all her sister's toys :)

Leni hates when she is left alone in a room.  She yells for somebody to come back and keep her company.

Army crawling started this month.  She is quite slow at it right now and can get to places faster by rolling.  The pincher grasp also started getting much better this month.

Other Thoughts
Just as with Charlie, this was the start of everything clicking together!  We have started hearing more sounds than just babbling (no words yet though!), wanting to be picked back up after being sat down, and enjoying meal time with the family.  We know we are on the brink of our little baby losing that babyness soon so we are trying to enjoy every second of these months.  This month was so enjoyable and full of laughs.  Charlie and Leni have started spending more play time together and it is so fun to see.
