Star-8 Months

Age: 8 months

Weight and height: Not sure since she doesn't have a doctor's appointment this month, but I think she weighs around 17 pounds.

Wearing: Size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothes.  The 3-6 month clothes is getting too small for her so as soon as I get around to picking up the box of 6-9 month clothes from my sister's house, I'll move her into that size and give the 3-6 month stuff back to my sister to use for her little girl who will be moving up to that size soon. 

Likes:  Rolling all over the floor!  She LOVES playing with other kids now too. 

Dislikes: I hate to say this, but she's really not crazy about Little Man.  He loves her so much and shows it by getting in her personal space and squeezing her hands and arms too hard. 

Eating habits:  Star eats about 6 ounces of formula and 4 ounces of baby food in the morning when she gets up.  Around 10:30, she takes another bottle followed by another 4 ounces of baby food.  1:30 is another bottle and then she has one more bottle and 4 ounces of baby food at 5:30. 

Sleeping habits:She sleeps from 7 pm to 7 am and wakes up to cry for a few minutes pretty much every night at 11 pm.  She will usually go back to sleep without any help from me.  Now that's she rolling over onto her stomach, she likes to sleep on her tummy which is super cute.  Naps are good/bad.  Good because she'll usually fall right to sleep as soon as I lay her down.  Bad because she won't stay asleep for longer than an hour.  She sleeps from 8:30-9:30 in the morning and is supposed to sleep from 10-1 in the afternoon and then 4-5 pm.  However, her 2 hour nap is usually just a 1 hour nap which throws off the rest of the day. 
Milestones/Accomplishments: She finally learned how to roll over from her back to her stomach and now she's unstoppable!  She goes backwards while on her stomach, but hasn't figured out how to go forwards yet which is a huge disappointment to her when there's a toy just out of her reach.  She squirms, rolls, kicks, and spins enough that she's able to move all over the living room.  She just hasn't figured out how to move purposefully yet :)

Miscellaneous: One of her top teeth is ready to pop through the gum anytime now!  I stopped swaddling her this past month.  I'd tried stopping that earlier, but she wasn't ready.  Instead of wrapping her in her blanket to sleep, now I put it next to her and she grabs it to hold while she sleeps.

Little Cutie!

 I took this picture of Star wearing a bonnet before church one Sunday:


I kept thinking it reminded me of another picture so I (figuratively) dug through my Facebook albums and came up with this picture of Princess taken when she was around the same age Star is now.  The funny thing is that if you look closely, you'll see that Princess is wearing the diaper cover that matches the dress that Star is wearing in the picture above.  


What do you think?  Can you tell they're sisters?  

Thanks so much for visiting Supermommy!...Or Not.  I'd love for you to like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter!

  1. I love the update posts. Star is such a little doll.

    1. Thank you! I thought these would be kind of boring to anyone besides me and Grandma :) I'm glad to hear that someone else enjoys reading them too!

  2. I completely understand what you are going through with nap time! I am in the same situation at the moment, but been doing great for the last 2 weeks with new nap schedule. Just a thought why not try to push Star's first nap a bit later? She is probably under tired at 8.30 hence why she only sleeps for an hour...;)

    1. Glad to hear that your nap scheduling issues are improving :) Star's 1 hour naps in the morning and late afternoon are perfect, it's her mid-afternoon nap that is causing problems because she needs to sleep about 2 hours, but only stays asleep for 1 hour. When she does that, then she has to take 2 more short naps before bedtime instead of 1. It would be nice not to have to deal with 4 naps a day!

  3. Aw, so cute! I can really tell they are sisters and I chuckled a little at her not being too fond of the way her brother shows his love.

    1. Sometimes she starts crying if he even comes near her. He's obsessed with her hands and is constantly grabbing and holding them tightly which she HATES! I know it won't be long before she starts to actually enjoy playing with him though :)


Thank you for your comment! I read and appreciate every one.
