- Lyssa Boo
- A Wyssa (Keira's pronunciation that we all find ourselves saying)
the happiest and sweetest baby ever!
She absolutely loves her big sister! She's always laughing at Keira's singing, dancing, and overall goofiness. It's the best entertainment for her.
She is generally content without being entertained. I guess that's the second child for ya. She will sit in her exersaucer or roll around on her tummy mat or lay on my bed forever (I have to watch her rolling off the bed these days though...already boo hoo'd over that once). Water bottles and Tupperware are also very entertaining for her.
She is lazy. She doesn't have any interest in sitting up. She can sit for a short period of time, but then she will lean over and rest...or just topple over. She gets it from me...not that I'm "lazy" but I lack energy ; ) She is calm and laid back like me. She sits back, watches, and just takes it all in.
She can get from point A to point B...it's far from what I would consider a crawl...but with some rolling and scooching she can get to where she wants.
She has not a single tooth yet.
She is my early girlie...almost always waking up by 6 or 6:30...but give her a bottle and snuggle her in momma's bed, and she's usually out for another hour or two.
She's not a fan of eating these days...
She drinks her bottles okay...but not as much as she should.
She loves fruits...but she has to be in the mood.
She hates vegetables...but will usually tolerate sweet potatoes.
She is not at all consistent with having a routine. It's a struggle to tell a babysitter when she is due to eat or how much to feed her. It's a guessing game everyday. Some feedings she'll gulp down a 6 1/2 oz bottle...other times she squeezes those little lips together so tight after only having an oz or two, and when she does that, you aren't getting any more in her. A lot of formula goes wasted with her.
She has said "Dada" and "Mama," but it's not a regular thing.
Happy 8 months Alyssa Nickole! Thank you for bringing so much joy and sweetness into our world! I love you with all of my heart!
