Remy // 8 months
Weight:20 lbs 10 oz
Height: 27 + inches

I figured since we are almost into July I should probably share an update on this booty baby.  Let's just say I really wasn't a fan of seven months.  Actually, I'm not sure I clearly remember that month very much considering the amount of combined sleep I had was about 5 hours.  However, in the past few weeks since she's turned eight months it seems she has shown me that she is less infant and more baby.  Remy's personality has really started to grow and I love watching her wide range of emotions.  Nine months has always been one of my favorite age ranges so I'm excited for the next few months coming up!


Here is what Remy has been up to the last month:

Size
We had to make yet another trip to the doctor this past month only to find out her double ear infection had not completely healed up.  But this time they weighed her so I know that the chunkers weighs 20lbs 10 oz.  I'm hoping at this rate I'll quickly gain some serious Kate Middleton arms just from carrying Remy around.  She's comfortably wearing 9 month or 12 month clothes and still has several 6-12 month outfits that fit well too.  I'm going to need to stock up on some cotton 12 month pjs here soon because her little toes are starting to curl up in her 9 month pjs.


Eating
Eating is still the same with three meals a day.  I cut up some watermelon and avocado pieces and she loved every little piece of them.  Remy also loves shredded cheese, puffs and Mum-Mums.  During the day she gets three 4 oz bottles and then a 7 ouncer before bed.  She will wake up usually once for another bottle but at this point I'm quite certain it's just a comfort thing but sweet Jesus I will take any sleep right now.


Sleep
Something with this third child has my like woah.  Remy has finally figured out how to flip over in her bed without getting stuck.  But her chubby legs manage to find their way over her breathable bumper and have gotten caught a couple of times in the middle of the night.  The continuous double ear infection didn't help the sleeping either.  One night Remy was having a horrible time, so I laid her down to change her diaper I gave her the bottle to drink.  After like two sucks she let out this awful cry which made me know she was in pain.  I almost took her to the ER because Kurtis and I could not get her to calm down.  However, after a round of Motrin she was good for a few hours.  Last week we spent a few day at my parents and the kid slept like a dream - of course.  But Remy still goes down around 7:30, will most of the time wake up once and then will be up for the day anytime after 7:30.  Her naps still have remained consistent at 10 and 2, which sometimes are a hit and others a complete miss.  This kid is not predictable to say the least.




Milestones
Remy now has eight teeth and I can see nine making it's way up to the surface at the bottom.  Shes' a master roller and can scoot herself backwards to whatever she wants.  Today I caught her trying to pull the DVR cords out of the wall.  As you can see my baby-proofing skills suck.  Last week she also started clapping which has been the cutest thing in the world.  She gets going, stops to look at her hands moving and then gets excited when she realizes what she's doing.  Remy has also figured out how to push up on to her hands and knees and will rock back and forth.  It's only a matter of days until she's on the go!

Likes
Baby girl still loves to be outdoors.  We got a new outdoor umbrella so I'm excited to spend some cooler mornings out there, drinking coffee and blowing bubbles.  Remy also is a pretty big fan of the pool.  Her Auntie Rah Rah bought her this whale float and girlfriend kicks her legs like its her job.  She is also a huge fan of blankets and loves to snuggle up to them.

Dislikes
Remy absolutely HATES to have someone walk by her and not pay attention to her or pick her up.  If I'm trying to get things done and she's in her jumper I will completely avoid eye contact or choose a different path that is not in her line of sight.  She also hates waiting for her bottles or food as well as getting her diaper changed.

Remy Elizabeth,
Over the past few weeks you have grown from infant to baby right before my eyes.  You are so interactive and ready to explore the world!  You think your brother is the funniest person in the world and you love when your sister plays with you and shares her toys.  I used to think you were a Daddy's Girl but I'm wondering if that is starting to change.  :)  Remy your thighs are absolutely delicious and the wrist rolls are to die for I'm telling you.  Just one more full month together until I head back to work full time again, which makes me sad but I'm also thankful that I got to spend almost ten months home with you, your sister and brother!

xoxo,
Mom
