A Few of Her Favorite Things

Bayden got lots of fun toys and books over the past month for Christmas including things that light up, sing, play music, talk (even in Spanish too), rattle, crinkle, and anything else you can imagine.  Her favorite things right now are not her toys, it's everything she shouldn't have.  She wants the tv remote, our phones, paper, her monitor wires, her diapers when we're trying to put it on her, magazines.  The thing that would have made her the happiest for Christmas would have been a bag of chips.  We get a big pouty lip and tears when we take things away from her, but then she's pretty easy to distract.  She is a busy little gal and I think when she is on the move, she will be into everything.

8 Months

Bayden turned 8 months last week.  Again, we can't believe how fast life goes now.  Here is what she is up to these days.

She visited the nicu doctor last Monday and weighed in at 14 pounds 10 ounces.  Just a little peanut still.  She still needs her monitor, had another 21 second apnea spell on her report.  I asked if she will need it the rest of her life.  He says its getting better.  However, sometimes I have these images of me showing her college roommates or future husband how to hook her up at night.  We still like the peace of mind it brings us at night, but are anxious for her to grow out of this.

This is such a fun age and she is always learning.   She flaps her arms around like crazy when she is excited and a lot of her pictures are blurry because they are always moving.  She does bye-bye, plays peek-a-boo, patty cake, and we're working on so big.  She scoots backwards when she is trying to move forward.  

She loves to eat and has tried lots of new foods.  She eats all of whatever we give her and everyday at daycare they say she is the best eater at the table.
