8 month weight check

look at this sweet girl! Grace got her this coat for Christmas and i LOVE it!

look at that belly! she may be tiny but she's starting to fill out her little body.

Jackson was such a good boy at Addison's appointment. Sometimes it's hard for him to wait patiently while his little sister gets all checked out but he did an AWESOME job! i was SO proud of him and we exchanged a lot of high fives! :)

Addison had her month weight check on Wednesday of this week (Feb. 18th). She's so little that they always want to make sure she's not wasting away. It's a hassle to have to go in once a month but she always passes with flying colors! She's a whopping 14.5 pounds. I know, I know, that's hardly whopping! :) However, she's doing GREAT and meeting or exceeding all of her milestones. She'll go for her 9 mo. well baby appointment in March and then hopefully won't have to go back for anymore weight checks.

We love our little peanut and we'll take her just as she is!

Here's some of what she's up to lately:
Pulling up in her crib, at the coffee table, and couch
Eating some table food
Eats 2, sometimes 2 1/2 jars of baby food per meal...this girl LOVES to eat!
Squeals to get everyone's attention...even strangers
Is a TOTAL momma's girl. Already experiencing some separation anxiety...not excited about this.
Loves to do a clicking sound with her tongue that is SO cute
She likes to sing along with I'm singing

We love our Addison Grace!

Way to go Addison...and Jackson! I was so glad to hear that her appointment went so well. I have SEEN her eat - and so I've always known she's doing just fine!!! :)

I personally love little peanut babies - got a soft side for them! She'll do just like Jackson did and shoot up and out so quickly. Just enjoy those extra tight snuggles for now! She's a doll baby.

Oh Addison needs an Aunt Vonda hug or should I say Aunt Vonda needs an Addison hug! Oh she is absolutely a doll baby! She looks so feminine and dainty and wow 2 jars of baby food??? That's more than Carolina Grace eats and Carolina Grace's belly is a lot bigger. :) hee hee! Love seeing your posts on your blog, Beth!

I love her coat! She's such a cutie Beth. It's hard to believe she's 8 months old already.
