Miriam: 8 months
Our 8 month old baby is growing by leaps and bounds!
Sleeping patterns: After several nights in a row of the kids waking each other up in the middle of the night and requiring much parental attention to get back to sleep (meaning we were zombie parents the next day), we've moved Miriam back to the living room at night. Does anyone have any advice about getting a baby and a toddler to share the room AND getting everyone to get some sleep at night? I'm not sure what to do.
Eating patterns: Breastmilk every 3-4 hours and a bottle of formula before bed, and solid foods for lunch and dinner. And by "solid" foods I mean actually solid foods, which leads me to...
New discoveries she made: Miriam decided just this last week that real people food is THE BEST. Just the other day, Jesse was trying to feed her a bottle while he ate a sandwich. When Miriam discovered that he was eating something awesome while she had boring old milk, she threw a fit until Jesse acquiesced and gave her some sandwich. Her sense of injustice is strong!
Accomplishments: Pulling up to stand! This girl is growing so fast!
Places she went: The zoo, to soccer practice, to Josie's house, to church...basically she's the best tag-a-long baby ever.
Special memories: Smiling at anything and everything. This girl has an indomitably cheery spirit!
