8 Months With Baby Bella

I feel like it was just last week that I was sharing about month 7, but here we are halfway through June and on to 8 months with our sweet Bella.

It's been another fun month full of lots of fun times playing, traveling and good times! *there are affiliate links in this post. 

Loves: Bella loves eating her toes- it's so funny to watch. She's always making silly noises and being funny- she keeps herself entertained for a long time :) Bella enjoys going to the Children's Museum, seeing new things and people watching. Daddy made her pancakes after she tried some one morning when we were out to eat and she gets really excited to devour them!

Not a fan of: peas, getting her nose or face wiped. She's pretty chill and easy going, thankful for that!

Sleeping: like an Angel still. She takes some really long naps during the day occasionally and then still sleeps through the night. We are blessed with a great sleeper.

Feeding: Bella loves to eat and is doing great with her bottles and reflux. There's the occasional spit-up, but for the most part she's pretty normal now in terms of her belly and issues. She loves trying baby food and has loved every single thing we have given her, with the exception of peas. Not a fan of those!

Stats: We don't go back to the doctor until next month, and I didn't bust out a measuring tape LOL, so I'm excited to see how much she's grown when we go back! She's in 6-9 month sleepers, and I swear she gets longer every day. She's finally in mostly 3-6 month bottoms, her waist is so tiny!

Favorite Moments and Things I Don't Want To Forget From Month 8: I took a week off before starting my new job and we had so much fun going on plenty of walks and visits to the Museum. Bella went to her first birthday party with friends, enjoyed her first visit to the river and my Dad's boat and loves playing. She's on the verge of crawling, and although she's not quite there yet- she is always on the move.We took a trip to Cleveland, one to Toys 'R' Us (her first and last I'm sure), watched her first soccer game cheering on Ethan, Ribfest and lots of fun in between.

Products We Are Loving: Blue Lizard Baby Sunscreen- sunscreen is a debatable topic, but this is the safest one I've found based on her age.
Tag blanket- Bella is a huge fan of tags, loves playing with them and chewing on them. This isn't the exact one she has, but it makes her happy.
Gerber yogurt melts- I tried these before puffs and they're nice because they easily dissolve in her mouth. We like getting her used to the texture and type so we give her a few of these and puffs at mealtime.
Gerber puffs- Sweet potatoes are Bella's favorite- so of course she enjoys these. We waited another week after the melts before trying these. I enjoy them too ;)

 My sweet Bella Charles, every day with you is so much fun. I love watching you grow- keep being silly, wild, sweet and wonderful YOU!

Happy Monday friends- hope your week is wonderful!
