Well months 6 and 7 have come and gone....and you actually turned 8 months old a few days ago! Really, really not sure how this is possible sister. But since I never posted a recap for months 6 & 7, I thought I'd go ahead and do that and hopefully I'll get back on track with month 8. Thanks for understanding my dear. ;)
These last couple of months have been pretty rough on you. It seems like we've had a week on, week off with either being sick or just miserable from teething. You're still generally a very happy easy-going baby, but you just look so pathetic sometimes - like in this picture. You were NOT in the mood...but you humored your momma cause you're sweet like that.
When I was taking your monthly pictures, your brother decided to join us, with his underwear on his head nonetheless. You just looked at him like, well - like he was crazy. He definitely is an entertainer and makes both of us laugh many times throughout the day. Manny still calls you Bebe Sawyer, but around Christmas started calling you Bebe Jesus too. I'd find myself correcting him and saying, "No Manny, it's not Bebe Jesus, it's Bebe Sawyer." I tend to forget your name really isn't Bebe Sawyer, but it's Maeva. Trying to work on calling you that more. :)
We started trying to give you cereal and a few other foods shortly after you turned 6 months, and you had no interest in them. I didn't push it, but tried it a few weeks later and you're getting a little better at it. You still don't get really excited but will tolerate eating if I work with you. You still nurse about every 3-4 hours during the day. Sometimes you'll go 5 hours, but that's rare. You are a great napper most days, but still like to wake up at night. Every month I say I'm going to break that habit, but then every month I end up being a pushover. Right now I'm managing how things are, so I figure we'll get there eventually.You have 3 teeth now, and are working on a few more!You are just looking like such a big girl lately and I can't believe how much you've changed looking at these pictures from the last 2 months.
You are a pro at sitting up, but you have no real interest in trying to crawl just yet. Your daddy says it's because you're a little lazy, but I think it's just because you want to stay mama's little baby. I'm cool with that sister.
You absolutely love your jumperoo, and will jump in it for quite some time. You just keep a simple steady pace and look around smiling. It is the cutest thing. It does, however, tend to cause you to have a blowout. I guess all that jumping makes you have to go potty or something...almost every time. Crazy.
You are such a sweet sweet girl Maeva Beth. People stop us everywhere we go because you just love to smile and talk to other people, and they notice your sweet spirit too. I love you so much baby girl!!
