8 is Great!
Adelyn is 15 pounds, 27" long. She loves solid food. Anything I give her she wolfs down. I gave her a graham cracker the other day, put ONE bag of groceries away, turned back around and it had disappeared! I was sure she had thrown it on the floor...but no, it was stuffed into her mouth. She didn't appreciate when I gave her the "lady-like bites" lecture and had to dig it out of her mouth so she wouldn't choke. She loves chicken with carrots and applesauce, brocolli-quinoa casserole, peas, beets, any kind of fruit or vegetable really. She will spit her food out at me to let me know she is done, which I don't appreciate, but it is effective. She also loves to feed herself so I cut a lot of food up into pieces and let her eat that way. It's messy, but she looks so accomplished and she is, of course, washable.
Adelyn really likes going on walks, but is not a fan of boating. Or lifejackets, rather. She seemed fine once I defied all mommy-sense and took it off. Yes, she cried and I gave her what she wanted. We were in the middle of the lake and I was not the only one affected by this.
She's not crawling yet (which is good because I'm not ready to tackle baby-proofing), but she will go from sitting to crawling position, then tummy, and then rolls to get what she wants...cords being a favorite of hers.
