Today Everly is 8 months old! This past month has been a lot of fun. We have started going to the pool in our community a lot and Everly loves it. It has a beached entry so she can just sit there and splash all day long. We can't wait to take her to the beach in a few weeks. Everly has continued to put on the weight. I am not quite sure how much longer she will be in size 3 diapers for. She still fits into some 6 month clothes but also fits into most 12 months clothes! She is now in a pretty good routine as far as eating 3 meals a day. We have even introduced a little meat into her diet. She loves banana and we often sneak it into dinner if she doesn't seem to be eating it! She is really good at sitting up and transitioning from on her hands and knees back into sitting. She rocks back and forth like crazy but is not quite crawling yet. This month it will happen for sure! She loves her johnny jumper and it is so funny to watch her jump around in it. She has regressed more with her sleeping routine. Most nights she is in our bed. We try to put her in her crib and she just wakes up. In our bed, she sleeps through the whole night which means we also sleep through the whole night! I don't hate having her there either, she is so cute! But we know it is not a good habit to get into, so we are trying to get her back into her crib. She has kind of started to do this waving thing that is really cute. I don't think she really means to wave yet, but it is still cute! This month will be our first family vacation, which also means Everly's first plane ride (not counting the plane ride when I was 34 weeks pregnant!) We are really hoping she does well and are so excited for the trip!
