Dylan is 8 months

We are 2/3 of the way to Dylan's 1st birthday. I've said it twice before and I'll say it again- this is by far my favorite baby stage. Here is what Dylan has been up to this past month:

Height:28 in
Weight: 18 lbs

No more pacing the floor with baby! Dylan now goes down happily for all naps and at bedtime and y'all it's GLORIOUS!! She usually takes 2 naps per day but the past week or so has had several days where she's taken a single but long (3+ hour) naps. Evenings this month have taken a hit in that she's been getting up in the middle of the night several days each week but we are literally up with her maybe 15 minutes- diaper change feed and we lay her down and she's back asleep by the time I get back to my bed.

She's loving solids and hasn't tried anything that she hasn't liked yet. I've given her puffs and she's loving those as well. She's still taking 5 bottles a day and then baby food at breakfast and dinner and she's. still. spitting. up. Not nearly as much, but without fail at least 5-7 times a day.

She's rocking on all fours and lunging at things but not crawling yet, although that doesn't stop her from getting where she needs to go. Between lunging and rolling, she is all over the place. She can also go from laying down to sitting up on her own. Once she's sitting she's pretty steady but still tips over frequently so we do our sitting on carpet only for now.

She has started to babble (and squeal). She's grasping at objects better but I still feel she's a little jerky and often seems to accidentally throw things.

Still holding on at 2 teeth.

Had her 1st ride in the shopping cart sitting up just the other day!

She's such a happy camper! I'll leave you with a little video of what my typical morning looks like with these three....
