Capri Update: 8 Months*

With her "Tag" blanket in a pile of laundry.
Does life get any better?
This little girl melts our hearts every day! The speed at which she grows is incredible!

Daddy was playing with the camera.
He was so proud to get a "winking" picture.

Capri still rocks the chunk! At her appointment this month she weighed in at 19 pounds 12 ounces! That's the 83 percentile. Height is 27 inches, 46 percentile. She is healthy! We are giving her shots slowly. We are not against vaccinations, but we only give 2 at a time because we believe her tiny chunky body only needs a few to process at a time. At this visit we also found out she has Eczema. The PA suggested we use Aquaphor on it. No more smell good baby lotion. Daddy's favorite is the lavender bedtime lotion.
We have had quite the week with sickness. Break my heart to see her sick! Here is the full story!
**Update (1/27 (2 weeks later)) We have cleared up the Eczema. Aquaphor worked great!


Still nothing new to report on sleep. She is a great little sleeper!
She goes to bed around 8pm, wakes at 6am to nurse, back to sleep until about 8:30am. She naps for about 1/2 hour at 1030. Then down for a 2.5 hour nap at 1:00pm when Jeremy naps (how did I get so blessed?)! Another little 1/2 hour nap around 6pm. Bed at 8pm.

Little Fashionista!

We have put all the 6 month clothes away. We have a few 6-9 month outfits still hanging. She is in 9 month comfortable! A few 12 month jammies. I just think it feels better when you sleep to be in something a little baggy!


Playing at church! She still has an obsession with TAGS!
A collage coming soon with all the places she gets them!

We are always on the go and have people over or going to see someone! It's no wonder my kids have no stranger danger. On the fence if this is a good or bad thing!

Brotherly/Sisterly Love
They love bath time!

This boy is such a sweet big brother. He always lets us know if Capri is crying, spitting up, drooling! He's on the look out for anything she may be chewing on that he can choke on. We have had a few times this month that Jeremy has taken toys from Capri because he wants to play with them. He is learning patience with her.

Auntie Danielle gave her an orange to play with and chew on.
She didn't think that her sharp little teeth could bite through and get some!
So her first official food was an orange! She made quite the sour face!

We gave her cereal 2 nights in a row and she threw all of it up! I did some research to see what might be causing this and found that grains are actually quite difficult for infants to digest. Who knew?? Since her stomach seemed to be true to this we decided to go with Baby-lead weaning, loosely.

The first food she liked didn't spit up was avocado mixed with breast milk! I don't give it to her every day. Probably about 2 nights a week. Other then that she is 100% breastmilk.

Celery on Christmas Eve

We have also let her chew on apples and pears in her Fresh Food Teether. I love this thing! She has also use celery and a carrot for teething.


 Aside from the food introductions we have not much to report. We are SO close to crawling.

Don't let her lack of crawling make you think she doesn't move around! She does an army crawl, head launch! I'll have to video it!
