Madi 8 Months

The baby has left the building!!!  Tear, tear, sniffle, sniffle...Madi is like a big girl already.  As I posted last week Madi is crawling, pulling up, and sitting like a champ.
She's wearing 6-9 month clothing and were finally on the last box of size 2 diapers!
She still nurses at 7 am, 11 am, 3 pm, and gets a bottle at 7 pm.  She gets solid food around 12:15 and 5:00 pm.  She flipped a switch a few weeks ago and LOVES solid food.  She's had avocado (the only thing she doesn't like), yams, butternut squash, zucchini, and carrots.  She's also had the food puffs a few times to work on her fine motor skills.  It's really funny to watch her pick it up and try to get it into her mouth.  She's still napping from 9-11 am, 1-3 pm, and a catnap around 5:30 pm.  The schedule isn't strict.  If she's sleeping I don't really wake her anymore.
I am super happy to report that she's totally in her crib.  The huge negative is now she's addicted to her binkie:(  You win some, you lose some.
Still four teeth but acts like more are coming every now and then.
Her mood continues to improve but she's still dramatic and high maintenance.  We're currently weaning her off her acid reflux medicine and it's going well.  I think she's starting to outgrow the reflux but I'm also thinking a lot of it was just her high maintenance personality, lol.  To give you an idea of her drama when I take away something she can't have she screams like I hit her with a frying pan.  She cracks me up.  I can't wait for the teen years if she's this dramatic already.
She loves playing with her sister and playing with her own toys.  However, her newest favorite novelty is climbing the two steps in our family room.  I'm sitting down even less in the last couple of weeks because I keep getting her away from the steps.

Taking her photo is next to impossible now.  She lunges forward in this chair so I tried putting her in front of it which she crawls off immediately.  Lastly I tried standing her next to it which was ok.  She's a mover and a shaker!

I will love you forever Miss Madison.  Happy 8 Months!
