8th Month

8 Months Old babyAlright… While our now eight months old baby girl is sleeping, I can write an update of how did it go last month.

One of the most exciting news is that we finally have our first tooth! Teething is actually going better than we thought it would. Daniella isn’t too naughty and sleeps well. We hardly even use medicines for teething.

8 Months Old playing with cats toysDaniella isn’t crawling yet (even though I never find her in the same place where I left her no more), but I think she is very near to proper crawling. From sitting or lying positions she can get into crawling position in seconds. Then rocks herself forwards and backwards happily. 🙂 Unfortunately our floor is very slippery at home, I guess it slows down this learning process too.. I bought Daniella some ‘anti slip’ crawling tights, but they didn’t work for us.. 🙁

She still goes to sleep at 9pm, then most of the nights she would wake up at around 6am or 6.30 am, but after nursing Daniella would fall back asleep straight away and sleeps till about 8.30am. There were couple of mornings that she slept till 9.30am or 10.00am!!

However, she is growing out of it, so I have no choice, but to try get her to sleep in her cot during the day too. Our princess doesn’t seem to be too impressed. Wants to play in the cot instead. But I try to be strict and sooner or later, after some loud crying, Daniella gives up and I win (mostly, but not always)!

Eating is going very well. She is not a fussy eater at all. I give Daniella pretty much everything what we eat, but no salt, or very little. She loves all kind of meats, fish, pasta, adores bananas, melon and baby cookies.

If I give Daniella butter on toast, she will eat it nicely and when there is only a little piece left in her hand, she would take it with another hand and put nicely in her mouth. Awwwww, so cute!

Buttttt…. During the day it became a bit harder for me when I am alone at home. When I try to clean up, Daniella gets upset if I go to another room. Hoovering became a nightmare for us. Daniella is happy when I hoover the room that she is in, but as soon as I go out she screams herself off. I have no other choice, but to ‘close’ my ears and keep on hoovering, or we will live in a mess if I will follow her rules.

Time is really flying too fast these days.. Daniella is growing and mummy will have to return to work soon.. Ahh ahh :((( Will be heart breaking to leave my pretty angel while going to work… Not looking forward at all…
