Happy 8 Month Birthday, Caroline Bella

(because I am crafty like that, I made the rose snap that is on her headband! )

Sweet Caroline, I just can't believe another month has come and gone.  We are getting so close to you turning 1. Your sweet personality is blossoming and your smile is so contagious. You are growing, thriving and just over all a complete joy in our lives. This month:
  1. You started sleeping through the night again.  It may have taken three days of cry-it-out, but now you are back to sleeping from 7-7.
  2. Since you sleep all night, you are now drinking all of your bottles during the day!!  This is a huge improvement since you were only drinking 2-3 oz of a bottle. 
  3. You started prop sitting.  You can sit (if you want to) by holding yourself up with her hands.  You can even sit straight up, but then fling yourself backwards once you are tired.  
  4. You have your reflux under control and are enjoying more foods.  You like bananas, avocados, apples, squash, plums, apricots, blueberries, carrots, peaches, and pears.  I gave you green beans, but you acted like I was killing you. Ha! 
  5. You got enough tummy muscles to roll back to belly and now no one can stop you from rolling around the house. 
  6. You are in size 3 diapers and 6 month clothing.
  7. Your hips aren't healing correctly so you will be moving from the Rhino Cruiser into a Spica cast.  
We love you so much Caroline!  You really are our littlest sunshine and you make our hearts so happy. We know the next few months will be difficult, but we hope one day you understand that we only want the best for you and will do all that we have to to provide you with the best quality of life. 

Mommy and Daddy
