8 months

Another month has come and gone.  Filled with many new milestones for these sweet girls!

The girls don’t go back to the pediatrician until 9 months so we don’t have any stats on their weight and height, but they are definitely growing!2015-04-27-019 2015-04-27-020

Where we are at this month:

They are both outgrowing Size 2 diapers, we have had a few blowouts.  We are finishing up our last pack and moving on to Size 3. They are wearing 6-9 month and 6-12 month clothes.  Both girls have two teeth.  They are both babling a lot!  Its so fun to just make up what you think it sounds like, and sometimes it really sounds like that is what they said.  Skylee is the most talkative and Rylee seems a little shy.2015-04-27-018 2015-04-27-017

Well these girls are everywhere!  They are crawling to wherever they want to go and this makes it twice as hard to keep an eye on them.  One is going one way and the other is going in the opposite direction.  We have had to keep them away from the dog bowls!  They love making their way into Avery and Raegan’s room and playing with their toys.  I usually have to go in and do a quick pick up to make sure there isn’t anything they could put in their mouth and swallow.  They are also pulling up to everything and cruising.  They do the most cruising in their cribs and around the ottoman in the living room.  They think they are so big and can even turn around and stand with their back to the crib/ottoman.  It will be really crazy when these girls decide to start taking their first steps!  I am so curious as to when they will walk, will it be early like Avery who was officially walking at 9 months or like Raegan who decided she would start walking the day after her first birthday!

We have these Dino toys that can be used to ride on or walk with.  They love them and can even get off of them by themselves.  They can stand up with one but not climb on it yet.  They really love it when big sisters sit on it with them and ride around the house.  Lots of smiles!2015-04-27-016 2015-04-27-015


The girls have been eating every 4 hrs and taking in 7 oz bottles, but I think we are about to change that.  They just arent interested in eating and I am trying to determine if its teething related, being too active to want to eat, or if they are ready to go longer between feedings.  They are still under the recommended ounces per day and I plan to discuss this with their pediatrician at their checkup coming up.  We can’t force feed them!  They are eating solids 2-3 times a day, usually at lunch and dinner.  They eat avocados, bananas, apples, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, peas(not a fan of right now), and baby oatmeal.  They also started eating Cheerios this month!

She didn't like touching the grass!

This month we have been sleeping great!  They are still taking 3 naps a day!  We only had one night where both girls woke up screaming right before I went to bed.  I went in to see what the problem was and after they both continued screaming the hubby came in to help.  Well we realized they were having teething pains and were just gnawing on their pacis, so I went and got an essential oil to put on them and they calmed down within 20 minutes and went back to sleep and slept all night!  We are moving this weekend and I’m really hoping this doesn’t cause any sleep issues once we are in the new house!
