Caroline Grace {8 Months Old}

Caroline Grace,

Where did my baby go?! We were so unprepared for how mobile you'd become this month. You are all over the place at home and school. Yesterday I watched you crawl to the other side of the room and into your car seat. When you aren't crawling you're pulling yourself up on things -- the coffee table, your crib, my legs, the cabinets, the couch, your dresser, Charlie and anything that looks stable (or not). Once you are in standing position you always give the proudest grin. You know you're awesome. I didn't think it was possible but we continue to fall more and more in love with you. One of my most treasured moments lately have been how happy and giggly you get when you see us walk into your classroom at pick up. You come crawling so fast to us and your teachers get such a kick out of it. Our phones are overflowing with videos of you crawling into your closet to find your bows, pulling out baskets, attempting to crawl into your diaper boxes and more. We love you so much baby girl!!!


  8 Month Highlights:
  • Crawling, crawling, crawling!! 
  • Pulling up on everything.
  • Due to a second ear infection we know you are 15 lb, 11 oz. You're in 6 month clothes for the most part and occasionally wear 9 months. Still in size 2 diapers.
  • Saying "dadda" all.the.time. now, and still practicing waving hi and bye,
  • Eating 4 six ounce bottles of Earth's Best Organic Formula a day plus oatmeal with fruit in the morning and a pouch of organic fruits or veggies for lunch and dinner. Also taking the sippy cup like a champ. We love the Nuby, Tommee Tippee and Munchkin Flexi-Transition sippy cups.
  • No sign of teeth.   
  • Your hair is finally starting to come in a bit -- verdict is still out on color. For now, your eyes are hazel.
  • You always have (unless we're in a regression or have taken you out of your routine) been a great sleeper. You go down around 6:30-7 pm and wake at 6 am for a bottle and then cuddle in bed with us until we get up for the day. You still take all your naps in our arms too. Swoon!
  • The past few months you've really grown an attachment to MAM pacis for sleeping (and sometimes playing too) and every time we lose a few I immediately rush ship a handful more to the house. You also love to throw your pacis out of your crib over and over and over.
  • This month we celebrated your first Christmas and rang in the new year together.


  1. sweet pea is getting to big. Love that gummy smile. Lord help my son when he decides to start walking. I may have to push him down. hehe!

  2. It seema like even when you think you're ready for them to be mobile, you really aren't! And I wish I could go back to the days where Chloe would nap in my arms! Happy 8 months pretty girl!

  3. she is beautiful!! love love that smile :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  4. She is the SWEETEST! Happy 8 months, Caroline!:) And don't worry about the teething, Mama - Caleb didn't get his first tooth until 12 months, and our pediatrician assured us it was totally normal (and would probably be a good thing, as coming in later makes the teeth stronger apparently!)

    On a random note, if you decide to sell/consign any of Caroline's clothing, let me know! Our little gal will be born right around the time Caroline was, so sizing should be the same for seasons:)

  5. Sweet Caroline - you are growing and developing so well. Such a special little girl x

  6. 8 months already?! Time flies! She is so adorable, can't wait to see if she gets her mama's gorgeous hair! :)

  7. So darn beautiful and smiley!! Love her. It goes by too fast...

  9. I cannot believe she is 8 months old already!! She is so pretty & I love all her smiles!!

  10. Aw, this is precious! Such a sweet, sweet baby. :)

  11. WHAT a cutie!!!! Mam pacifiers have been our best friends for 2.5 years...Cam still uses them to sleep, and he's a great sleeper - I think they are magic! ;)

  12. How is she already 8 months?! Active babies are so much fun- they're so proud of themselves!! It's the best to watch them accomplish something and be so happy about it

  13. I love reading about Caroline's monthly updates!

  14. Happy 8 months, Caroline! She's getting so big! :)

  15. Happy 8 Months. This is the age that I could freeze forever and ever. My baby is 10 months and just so MUCH FUN ALL THE TIME. Caroline is a cutie!
