She's On The Move

  Well, we have a crawler (army crawl) as of last night. I knew it was coming. She did it all on her own, when she was ready. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Excited? Scared? Sad? Where's my baby?? Oh well good bye decor, bring on the baby proofing gear! :)

Lily 8 months update






 Lily,
Eight months!! I just have to say each month gets better and better! Every morning you're just happy as can be in your crib, I have to restrain myself from squeezing you so tight that your head pops off. No really, that's how crazy in love I am with you. Your smiles are contagious. You have gotten to be such a Mommies girl. I'm soaking it up because I know that wont last forever. Just the other day, I grabbed you from the crib, and you seemed so much bigger, longer even. Over night?? When Daddy is home and you're waking up, he always runs up to get you so he's the first person you see. You love seeing him, and light up grinning from ear to ear, it warms my heart. I believe you are starting to have a real appreciation for Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, you start singing LOUD when they come on! Your hair is getting long enough for me to put a little clippy in, or make the tiniest pony tail. Which is nice because your headbands are starting to double as teethers. Its possible you think your real name is Sweet Pea. You continue to be our dream baby. How did we ever get this lucky?
Happy 8 months baby girl! We love you!

Milestones

You are SO close to crawling - Funny thing is you crawl all over the crib in your sleep. But when you are having playtime you can't seem to remember how. You get up on all fours and rock back and fourth, then do like a swan dive head first into the floor. It makes you mad! So you end up turning your body toward the object and just rolling.
Still using rolling to get what you want 
Upgraded to the big bath tub 
Clapping
Standing and dancing (while holding onto furniture) 



Sleeping

Lately you haven't been taking a third nap so maybe we are dropping the last one?? Not a problem since you go to bed around 7 and wake up in between 6am and 7am (I've tried keeping you up longer in hopes you would sleep in a little……. No Dice)

Diet

You looove to eat! Anytime we are getting baby food ready you get so impatient excited. In fact, you love it so much I had to add another nursing feed because my supply was dropping. Ekkk I'll take that over you screaming at the boob cause it's not coming out fast enough any day! Not fun!
You have been working on feeding yourself and doing an awesome job. Not always hitting your mouth, but it's a learning process.

First ER Visit


 On Saturday morning, since we had been working on finger foods, I thought it was the perfect time to let Lily try some of my scrambled eggs while Ty was home (just in case she was allergic). By the second bite a little red patch popped up under her lip, so I stopped then wiped her hands and face, a few minutes later she vomited all over the kitchen. The hubs rushed up stairs to give her a bath and make sure all the egg was off. She was breathing normal and we didn't see any tongue or throat swelling.
 By now it was time for her morning nap, but I wanted to keep an eye on her a little longer. She started breaking out in hives all over her body. I called the peds office and explained what was happening, the nurse advised to give her Benadryl. We all loaded up in the car to run to Walgreens (because why would we have children's Benadryl on hand that would make way too much sense) and on the drive the welts and hives were spreading all over her face, and her left eye was getting very swollen.
 Fast forward to after we gave Benadryl, it wasn't working quite fast enough for us so just to be safe we took her to the Children's Pediatric ER. Everyone there was so wonderful and took great care of Lily. She was diagnosed with a severe egg allergy. They gave her more Benadryl and also steroids. We were so grateful for the wonderful care Lily received. We had a follow up appointment on Monday with her pediatrician. Since she had eaten baked things with egg (very little) and also had the flu shot, she wants Lily to see a food allergy specialist to have her tested. I'm so hoping she will grow out of this, but until then no more EGG! So that was our scary food allergy run in, and Lily handled it like a boss! Guess I'll be making an egg-less smash cake for her first birthday :)
