I haven't done too many update posts on Amelia so I figured at 8 months I should probably get around to doing one. First off time flies when you have multiple kids. I felt like with Sophia I was there every minute. I rocked her to sleep every nap and night (and night awakenings) I was there to give my full on attention to one person. Amelia gets half that. She doesn't liked being rocked to sleep and only falls asleep on me if she is sick or deathly tired. Neither of that really happens so she just lays in her crib and falls asleep. On her own. Without crying. I never thought that existed until she came along to prove me wrong.
These two are inseprable. Amelia wants to do everything her big sister does. If Sophia leaves the room Amelia just looks and waits for her return. It's pretty cute to see their bond forming.
Amelia is definitely going through her attachment phase. She wants mama all day everyday. Sophia says it perfectly "She loves her mama!"
Our nicknames for Amelia are Millie, Millie Moo Moo, Sis and Little. Her favorite foods are anything she can pick up but I'm making sure it's just puffs, cheerios, yogurt tabs and soft veggies. She loves prunes, squash, green beans, rice and oatmeal cereal.
This girl smiles non stop. Seriously she is really this happy all the time. (as long as she is near her mama) She loves smiling and laughing at funny faces and is a little bit of a daredevil. She doesn't really get scared! I'll toss her up in the air and she just laughs and squeaks!
Playing outside is one of her favorite activities. We bought a swing set and she loves to stand by the slide and watch Sophia walk up to the top and slide down! Swinging and eating the grass she pulls up are two other fun things she likes to do when we're outside!
Little Millie got her sickness this last weekend. An ear infection. She was a little grumpy and more clingy than normal but she wasn't waking up at night and there weren't really any other signs. So glad I listened to my mama instincts and took her in to see the Dr. She is much better and back to her normal self!
She has one bottom left tooth that popped out! The other bottom tooth is so close to coming out that I can see the outline of it through her gums. Everything is going in the mouth and she just wants to bite down on anything she can get her hands on to relieve some of that pressure. Hopefully it'll be out in the next few days!
We just love our little Millie. She is so happy and just loves to be loved! She adds so much happiness in our lives and I am so grateful to have another healthy happy little girl in my life!
