Catelin at 8 Months

Standing outside the exercauser!

Catelin has grown so much in the past month – not just physically but mentally and emotionally.  I love watching her figure things out…she gets just as excited as MJ and Ty did when they were her age.  

Eating: She eats 1.5-2 servings of stage 2 foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  She is still taking about 4-5 six ounce bottles during the day and drinking water from her sippy cup.

Sleeping: 12 hours at night (~7:15-7:15) and two 1.5-2 hour naps during the day.  

Favorite toys: Sofie the giraffe, toy (and real) keys, balls, baby Einstein music box, her squishy owls, and anything she can chew on!  She still loves the exercauser and even though she is way too big for her bouncy chair (and she doesn’t need it b/c she can sit on the ground), she still likes to bounce/rock in it from time to time.  

Finally, a bow in that crazy hair!!  :)

Motor skills: She is crawling/scooting backwards now, but she still hates to be on her belly.  In fact, she rarely rolls over because she hates it so much.  I think that will change as soon as she starts moving around more.  


Catelin loves to rock herself and has been doing it for months.  The second she gets into her car seat, she starts rocking away.  I finally got around to videoing it:

She can also stand for a short period of time while holding onto something (but she’s not pulling up yet).  

Teeth:  About 3 weeks ago, two of her top teeth broke through (the side ones) – it was a rough few days for our sweet girl, but she got through it and is much happier now.

Talking/babbling:  She is babbling a lot these days.  I swear she is trying to tell me something but for now it just sounds like “ba, ba, ba!”

Personality:  She is a happy, sweet baby.  The teething days are a little rough for her- she is very fussy and wants to be held a lot…The rest of the time, she is content playing with her toys, laughing at the boys, and loving on mommy and daddy.  

Oh, and she loves playing peek-a-boo (please ignore my “baby” voice!):

Love. It.

Happy 8 months, my sweet baby girl.


  1. The "fashionista" one was my favorite. That and the rocking chair. Sooo cute, Jules.

  2. She is precious and growing up so quickly!
