My baby girl is officially 8 months old, today. In only 4 short months she will be a year old. Where is the time going? 🙁
She’s been rolling over in the middle of the night for about 2 months now, but would never do it so we could see her. That is until she randomly decided she’ll share her expertise at rolling over with us the other day trying to get my cell phone. She legit rolled over to her stomach like she’s been doing it for years. She also looked at us like we were crazy because we cheered when she did it. Clearly we’re behind and she wasn’t impressed -_-.
In other developmental news, Jordyn can officially wave “hi and “bye” to people. oh, and she LOVES to stand. She needs to be holding onto someone or something in order to do it, but she is almost to the point that she hates sitting. Lastly, this little girl loves to DANCE! Music doesn’t even have to be playing for her to dance. I’m convinced she has a permanent soundtrack playing in her mind and that’s what she dances to. Either way, it’s adorable and there’s no stopping her lol.
We’ve been working on getting her to hold her own bottle, crawl, and say “Mama” and “Dada.” As of right now, she’s not impressed with any of these things. Giving her the bottle to hold is a joke, because she drops it, then looks at us like “why aren’t you doing your job?” When we try to get her to crawl, she stretches her legs back out and proceeds to army crawl/scoot to get to her destination. And when we tell her to say “Mama” or “Dada” she looks at us and cracks up laughing. She either thinks the words are REALLY funny or is mocking the fact that she’ll say what she wants, when she wants, and not a second before. Oh, she’s also into throwing things too. If she doesn’t want it, it usually ends up half way across the room. (In case you can’t tell, her independence and feisty-ness grows right along with her lol.)
This month we get to add cantaloupe, pineapple, watermelon, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and eggplant to her already extensive diet. I bought cantaloupe, pineapple, broccoli, and kale at the grocery store the other day for her to try. Tomorrow we will give kale and cantaloupe our first try. Let’s hope she likes it!
Thanks for reading up on my little Jojo. We’ll be back in a month to give another update on what amazing things this amazing kid has learned. Have a happy and blessed Wednesday evening! I’ll leave you with this adorable picture of Princess Jordyn in her Valentine’s Day outfit <3
