Madison 8 months

by purelytwins

Life just keeps getting more and more interesting over here.

Madison is now 8 months old.

I can’t believe it.  Where has time gone?

I swear it feels just like yesterday that I was giving our first week update.

Madison is so full of personality.

She definitely knows what she likes and doesn’t like.

I can’t get over how much she has grown into a little mini me so quickly.

This month we have experienced several new FIRSTs.

Happy healthy baby girl who loves to laugh and smile. 8 month old baby update purelytwins #newmom #momlife #8monthsold

She loves to laugh. Smile. Chat.

Really she enjoys just about anything as long as she is with someone she knows.

She still doesn’t do well with others holding her. New people she sits and stares at for awhile before she starts to feel comfortable with them. She is slowly starting to warm up to my parents.

She uses her whole body when she talks. Loves moving her hands and arms around.

She gets very serious when she does her baby talk.

She has a lot to say.

Madison loves to hold onto things to practice her standing.

I love seeing her try new things.

She is so curious and interested in everything around her.

Madison experienced for the first time:

Flying on an airplane.

Being in a pool.

Sitting on a raft.

Sticking feet in the sand.

Sticking feet in the ocean.

Being on Sanibel Island.

Seeing the sunrise.

My first child turning 8 months old. Giving a monthly update on blog. Life as a new mom. #purelytwins #newmom

Everyday is different. Fun. Exciting. Challenging. And I love it all.

Everything is pretty similar to her 7 month update besides that she can do more things now.  She is more interactive with her toys. Loves to eat. We are actually trying to teach her some sign language to help communicate with her.  Just started this. I am curious and anxious to see how it goes. My niece did this and it worked out well.

Breastfeeding, solids, naps, sleep and cloth diapers are all going well. Nothing too major has changed with any of those. Still no teeth. Nurses about 5 times a day. Eats solids about 2-3 times a day. Sleeping through the night. Can put her pacifier in her mouth now without our help which is so nice. Almost crawling. I have a feeling it will be very soon.

We have good and challenging days.

I am looking forward to seeing many more ‘firsts’ with her.

Madison is enjoying her first family vacation at the beach.

I can’t imagine my life without her.

She lights up my world so much.

What is your favorite childhood family memory? 

Do you take family vacations? 

Do you like traveling to the beach?

I absolutely love these updates! My baby boy is about 3 weeks older than Madison and going through many of the same experiences, changes and “firsts”. He has been close to crawling for a couple weeks and I can’t wait for the day it finally happens. 🙂

Looks like a nice time with family!

I’m curious about something. I noticed that you haven’t posted a new Move It Monday workout since early April. Are you moving away from fitness blogging/coaching into something else?

No we have a new workout video just haven’t had time to work on the post to get it published. The reason we stopped it a few weeks is because we did a kettlebell challenge for the past month so those were our workouts. We know are able to film new ones 🙂

Crazy to think about – her being one year old.
