I haven't posted Abby's stats in a while, and since I am a slacker with the baby book, I need to do it on here so that I can go back and look! She turned 8 months old last week while we were away, and she is 250 days old today! I thought she had grown a ton while we were away and I was anxious to weigh and measure her when we got back. Well I did, and she is 15lbs 10oz and 27" which is only 2 oz more and half and inch longer then she was at 6 months old. I am a little worried that she basically hasn't grown in 2 months! And I know that scales are different and stuff, but I weighed her both times on the same scale. She is eating like there is no tomorrow, so I figured it was a growth spurt, but no weight gain. I know she is also more active now, but shouldn't she be gaining a little weight? I know I worry to much, but I am a mum, its my job to worry!
Anyway, she also got 4 more teeth while we were away, so she is no longer "Fang Girl". She has 7 now: 4 on top and 3 on the bottom.
We have also discovered a new "trick" that Abby does. Our camera is set to flash 4 times when taking a picture (for red eye and stuff). No matter what Abby is doing, by the time the 4th flash goes, she is looking at the camera and smiling, even if you aren't taking a picture of her! It is hilarious! And her new favorite toy is a straw, she grabs onto it and wont let it go. I now keep a stash of them in my diaper bag!
Ok, there is your Abby update. The pics are ones that my cousin Shannon took while we were in Ontario.
