Faye is 11 months old!!! Good grief, almost a 1 year old, EEEEEK! I simply cannot believe it. It’s gone by so fast! She’s such a sweet bundle of joy and we love her so much.
Faye is getting goofier and goofier every day! She’s really coming into her personality and I love to see what is new with her each day. Her favorite thing to do right now is make tooting noises with her lips and mouth, she does it all day! Then Leo joins in, then Ivy joins in, and then there’s so much spit all over the place! It’s pretty funny though :)
Fay is 9 months old today! She’s getting to be a little ball of energy lately and I swear she might be as psycho as Ivy is at times! EEEK! We are going to have our work cut out for us keeping up with these two girls! They literally talk and giggle at each other at nights in their room until Faye eventually passes out. It’s the cutest thing. Happy 9 months Faye! You’re growing too fast right before our eyes!
This month is all the babble! She is saying “Da da” and “nigh nigh” and I’m trying so desperately to get her to say “Mama!” :) Love the babble phase and when they’re getting to know words. SO CUTE. Love hearing her voice.
Faye is 8 months old!!! I just can’t handle it. After my last post (read here) all about having that one last baby to soak in all the last firsts, I’ve been super clingy to Faye! This Mom thing saps me up sometimes and I get so emotional about it all! Tearing up writing this post thinking how fast it has gone and what a big month of growing this was for Faye – crawling, pulling herself up, and clapping! All the Mom feels!!!!
Faye’s biggest accomplishment this month – CRAWLING!!! She basically sat up for, like, a week, then started crawling! Such a big girl! Already trying so hard to keep up with her sister and brother. She is EVERYWHERE already. Mostly ends up under the table for some reason, but can crawl her cute little tush everywhere.
She also pulls herself up on everything! This is one of my FAVORITE stages when you walk into their room and see them standing there in their crib waiting for you! For some reason that just makes me swoon each time! It’s so cute!
Faye also loves to clap! She started that this month too and it’s sooooo adorable. Her big chunky hands and wrists meeting together and her smiling and giggling. So cute!
She’s being such a good eater too – LOVES yogurt! Her favorite! I do baby led weaning, so she’s been eating whatever we eat. Still nursing but mostly she loves her food.
Faye sprouted two more teeth this month – so she has two on the top and three on the bottom. She can literally rip steak pieces out of the strip of steak I give her!
Still not quite sleeping 12 hours. She’ll have about one day a week where she will sleep from 630pm-630am, but otherwise, mostly makes it till 4am, nurses, then goes back to sleep. I don’t want her waking up Ivy! So I go in there to nurse, don’t know if I’ll ever be able to just make her cry it out!! #lastbaby
She also moved in with IVY!!! Woo hoo!! I finally got the courage (read that post here). It’s been going well. I wasn’t sure if Ivy was a hard sleeper or not so I was really nervous, but she’s toooootally a hard sleeper. She doesn’t move a muscle as Faye is crying at night, so that’s good!! Ivy loves to go in her crib in the mornings to play together, soooo cute!
Sweet Baby Faye! We love you so much and you bring us all so much joy!!! I want to go squeeze her right now while she naps!!! Totally obsessed with her!
Faye is 7 months old today! She is such a bundle of joy and I pretty much just squeeze her all day! I could tooootally see how the baby of the family is spoiled… not speaking from experience or anything ;) I just love her so much!
Faye loves to play with toys! She is constantly grabbing at everything and playing with anything in sight. She is in that stage where she isn’t quite crawling, but is able to scoot her cute chubby butt all of the room. She was actually under our coffee table the other day, like, WHAT! Whoops! :) Another fact about the baby of the family, you tend to not have your eyes on them as often!
Faye hit the milestone of sitting and she also goes from laying to sitting. I love this stage where they just plomp their little tushes everywhere! She even started pulling herself up on things. Not all the way, but the girl is strong and gets herself up part way up the crib! I feel like she’ll start crawling any day! She rocks back and forth and scoots around everywhere. Even did the army crawl/downward dog position all this week!
Butt off the ground!
Faye LOVES to eat! She inhales any food I give her, especially loves yogurt and avocado. We have done baby-led weaning with the other two kids and am doing it again. Thankfully she has an excellent pincer grip for picking up all the foods we give her that we eat too. She loves strips of steak to such the juices out! Even uses her bottom lil teethers to strip little pieces of steak off.
Still loves to suck her 3 fingers! Haha. Leo was a 2-finger sucker and now Faye is a 3-finger sucker! EEEEK! Love a self soother, but Leo still does it and he’s 2 and a half!
Faye is maaaaajorly teething this last week. She’s getting her two on top and one more on the bottom all at the same time. Tylenol all day err day a few days ago, poor little girl had a low-grade fever and wouldn’t let me put her down. The bottom one finally popped through today but the top one still won’t budge!
She’s still so curious about her siblings, always wanting to watch them and try to take their toys away from them. She’s almost always laughing at Leo because he always wants to make her laugh. Ivy is completely obsessed still and loves to hold her and read her books before naptime. Sibling bond is the best! So blessed with three healthy fun kids. We love you Faye, happy 7 seven months!
