Oh, I’m so far behind! Emily’s now almost 11 months old, so this (and the next couple) post will be quite outdated, but I do want to write it up anyway, for memory’s sake and all. I don’t have a whole lot to write about for month 7-8, since I wrote about the trip to NJ in the last post and that was the only big event of the month (spanned over her 7 month birthday into month 7-8). For the rest of the month, we pretty much just chilled and kept up the routine.
Emily got good at sitting on her own:
She also started to just pull herself forward on her belly in an army crawl (I’m sorry for how dark the video is, my phone takes terrible video inside):
Her new-found steady vantage point and semi-mobility gave rise to more curiosity in exploring. This made the cat very wary:
And she started showing signs of being interested in pulling up, though hadn’t quite started yet:
And for fun, here’s another video of Emily in her doorway jumper:
Not much changed in terms of eating – Emily was still eating stage 1 foods, still loving fruits and hating green veggies (but eating them mixed with fruit). Though, if I recall correctly, I think her digestive system was kinda off, I guess due to new solids – for a few weeks she had a cycle of mild constipation, poo nuggets, poosplotion. But it got better. We didn’t have a doctor’s appointment for 8 months, but I weighed her around 8 months and I think she was around 17 lbs (though as the next few months went on, I started noticing a pretty good difference between the doctor’s scale and my “weigh with her and without her” weighing method at home, so I really don’t think any of my home weights for her are accurate). Still in 6 month clothing and size 3 diapers.
And now, a bunch more pictures.
And finally, her monthly pictures:
