miss poppy: 8 months

miss-poppy-8month

our dear little poppy is 8 months old. i can’t believe how fast she changes. here are some of the awesome things poppy is doing:

  • she is a little crawler! she started crawling a couple weeks ago and is now pulling herself up onto the stairs… lovely 🙂
  • she loves to look at books; she talks to them and squeals with excitement
  • she now refuses baby food, she only will eat little chunks of food
  • she likes to feed herself too!
  • some foods she has tried include: chicken, steak, salmon, ground beef, carrots, potatoes, pears, beans, bananas, avocado
  • she makes these little squawking noises like she is talking to herself and she also moves her mouth without making any noises like she thinks she is talking, it’s adorable
  • she is sleeping pretty good still. she wakes up once a night to eat, although the past week it was 2 times… teeth?
  • she has two little bottom teeth and they are sharp 😉
  • she likes to walk around holding onto our hands. she thinks she is so big and gets the cutest little smile across her face while she is walking
  • she had a great christmas and loved getting into bastian’s new toys. he does not love it that much though haha
  • she is such a happy girl
  • she does get mad when we take something away from her. it’s really cute; she clinches her fists and grits her teeth and makes a little growl noise in rage haha.

oh poppy, you bring such joy to our family. its so amazing to see your personality evolve. you are such a special little girl and you fill my heart to the top. i can’t bare to be away from you and look forward to see that adorable smiling face in the morning.

miss poppy: 7 months

miss-poppy-7month

my sweet miss poppy is 7 months old (a week late :|) she is just about perfect in my eyes. i mean this girl really has me in her palm, i can’t get enough of her. here are the awesome things poppy has been doing the past month:

  • she got her first tooth! and then another one came right after! wow… two teet, tear
  • she is on the move! she isn’t doing a traditional crawl yet, but she almost army crawls. i sweat in this first year, your baby can change in a matter of days, tear
  • she is a little talker. she is saying “yayaya” and “dadada” (whaaa? not fair) and all sorts of squeaks and squeals
  • she kind of dances in her little bouncer. she waves her head back and forth and stomps her little feet and it’s of course adorable
  • she loves her brother. even though the picture below doesn’t say that haha, she thinks he’s the best
  • she really likes to play with toys, putting toys into things and taking them out. she tries really hard to get the stacking stars back on the ring
  • she sleeps like a good girl now! yay! it’s kind of hit and miss if she sleeps completely through the night but otherwise she wakes just once to nurse
  • she is starting to get mad when people take toys or things away from her. i know there will be some big fights once she is mobile and can take bastian’s toys
  • she is eating solid foods and is now finally starting to like them. it took quite a bit longer for poppy to get into solids than it did for bastian. she likes sweet potatoes, avocados and is completely obsessed with this sauerkraut that my sister makes… funny huh?!

brian and i just can’t handle how much we adore poppy. we could watch her do cute baby things all day long. i find myself being so sad about her growing older. when parents say they wish they could freeze time, i 100% feel it with poppy. she is growing up too fast, and i will blink and she will be one. seriously, i am so sad about it! haha.
