Isabelle is 8 months (still...barely!)

*In writing this post I confused the birthdates of both of my children MULTIPLE times. I've finally sorted it out correctly, thank you cookie dough for the clarity. Isabelle is not 9 months for another 10 whole days, so this post is still completely accurate.

Isabelle: 8 months.  December 27, 2015 Izzy turned 8 months. At that time, she had just successfully completed her first Christmas and was quite skilled at both opening and eating presents, ribbon, and tape.  She seemed to prefer a lot of her brother's gifts, which worked out because he was pretty interested in hers.  She could army scoot/drag herself everywhere she wanted to go.  She still wakes 2 times a night and takes 3 naps a day. Actually, around this time, she was actually waking up closer to FIVE TIMES per night which turned out to be a tooth (I'll save that savory detail for the 9 month post)

She is an absolute joy, FANTASTIC on car rides, was pretty clingy in the month of December, much to the chagrin of every relative wanting to hold her!  She is around 15-16 lbs, wearing size 2 diapers and 6 month clothes.
