This post is especially for my cousin Michelle in Japan who wants to know all about what Adalie is doing now. This includes eating, walking, crawling, talking, hair, teeth, etc. she basically wants a post on everything so here we go....
Adalie's typical feeding/sleeping/play schedule @8months old, written from her perspective:
7:30am - Wake Mommy up with happy noises and giggles from my crib, get my wet diaper changed, drink 4-6oz formula and then I get to play in my exersaucer while Mommy drinks her coffee and watches the news
8:45- I am hungry again so Mommy makes me 3oz of whole wheat rice cereal mixed w/fruit
10am- I am sleepy. I think I will nap for 1 1/2 to 2 hours
12pm- I am ready to eat 4-6oz and play play play. This includes Mommy reading to me, a ride in my jogging stroller, Baby Einstein videos, swinging, tummy time (which I hate), stacking blocks, and playing with other fun electronic toys that annoy my Mommy when all the noises are going at one time.
2pm- Hungry again! I usually get another 3oz of rice cereal mixed w/ a veggie.
3pm- I am exhausted from playing. I think I will cuddle up with my lovey (a pink blanket) and sleep for 2 hours or so.
5pm- I am up and drink another 4 oz of formula. Then I usually go the Y with my parents and stay in the nursery while they work out. I love the nice ladies and I really enjoy watching the big kids play.
7pm- I get my last solid meal of the day! Usually a veggie or meat mixed w/ rice cereal and formula.
7:30pm - Time for me to get ready for bed. Some nights I get a bath, other nights I don't need one so we read books and listen to calming music.
8pm- Lights are off, music is on and I am tucked into bed. Tomorrow I get to wake up and do it all again!
New things I am doing:
Holding my bottle, sitting up on my own very well, scooting BACKWARDS on my tummy. Waving hi and bye. Saying, ba-ba, ma-ma and da-da.
Things I am not doing yet:
I still am not crawling. I still don't have teeth or enough hair for a bow.
New pictures to come SOON!
