Judith, you are 8 months old today!
Here are some of the highlights from the last month:
* You had a follow-up eye appointment for your ROP, and everything is still normal. We found out that you're far sighted, and we'll have to take you to regular eye checkups. You will definitely need glasses someday (we figured that you would even if you had been born at term), and it will probably be earlier than what we expected. No biggie though!
* You & I went to Park City to meet up with 2 awesome ladies Mommy talks to online. You got to play with their babies, and we all had a blast! I realize how much of a peanut you really are when you're around babies close to your own age, because they are so much bigger than you. You'll catch up to them quickly though!
* You got to go to your first VBS at Grandma & Grandpa's church! Panda Mania was a great theme to introduce you to VBS, because of all the black, white, and other bold colors for you to explore. You had fun, and you really liked the stories! I can't wait to take you again next year, and maybe we can go to VBS at our church for a night or 2 as well!
* You're teething a little more, and I can see them under your gums. They're nowhere close to cutting, though, and I think we have a while before they do rupture.

Feedings: We finally had to switch you to the bigger bottle size! You take anywhere from 20-24 oz of Neosure each day, and you get 2 solid meals (lunch & dinner). We tried some finger foods, but you're not ready for them yet, so you get purees with cereal mixed in.
Developmental Milestones: You added some new milestones this past month! You giggle more consistently, you can scoot and almost army crawl, you log roll to get to places, you can spin yourself around on your tummy, and you discovered your toes! You are much more interactive with the dogs, touching them and feeling their fur.
Happy 8 months, Judith!
