Where's your 8 month old at???

I have a 8 month daughter and I'm just curious what your eight month child is doing develpomentally??? My daughter is crawling full speed and cruising the furniture as much as possible. She loves to eat off mommys plate. My husband made the mistake of letting her try ice cream so if he's eatting it and he wont give her a taste she starts crying... We haven't really been pushing the sippy cup right now but I know we need to0 pretty soon. Shes about 18.8 lbs. and growing like a weed. Last off all she still has no teeth and we still cant put her hair up..just curious on where your babys at...

  • My 8mth old wont actually crawl... he inch worms.. lol. but he gets around just as fast. He is starting the sippy and doing pretty good. He is 18lbs. He has two bottom teeth. Um, he was a month early, so hes behind on some stuff, but hes catching up. He just started saying "dada" and is finally starting to say syllables. its so cute.

  • My son is 11 months now, but I could tell you what he was doing at 8 months ...

    - He was going to bed around 8pm, waking around 7am.
    - Eating 3 times per day, every 5 hours.
    - Each meal would consist of warming an 8-9 oz. bottle of formula, then making 4 tbspns of rice cereal using the warm formula, plus he would also get a jar of Stage 2 Gerber baby food. He has a large appetite :)
    - Started eating Puffs, but wasn't too enthusiastic about them.
    - Has 2 bottom teeth (since 7 months)
    - Rocks on hands and knees; can reach for object when on hands and knees.
    - Sort of claps hands
    - Says a lot babbles, no first word yet.
