At eight months old, Corrin...
... wears size 3 diapers, and 6 months or 6-9 months clothes.
... is no longer breastfed. We have weaned her to formula, and she eats jar food and some table food.
... has 2 teeth! She hasn't tested them out on us yet, but I'm just biding my time.
... slept in her own room all night! It should be noted that she was awake for approximately an hour and a half. And she woke up at least 4 times that night. We haven't been able to get her to sleep in her own room the whole night again since then. She's an expert at sleep deprivation.
... likes the sound of her own voice. She makes funny noises all the time. I love it.
... finally has her own crib in her room finally, speaking of sleeping in her room. We had borrowed a mini crib, that she took a few catnaps in. The mini crib mostly held laundry.
... spent a week away from her dad and I for the first time. She and Micah spent spring break with my aunt and her family. She did really well, and they both got spoiled.
... is army crawling. I don't no that anyone else in the family is ready for Corrin to be truly mobile. I have a feeling that she is going to be into everything. i also thing that poor Micah is going to be harassed to within an inch of his life. She loves her brother, and he's not going to catch a break when she starts moving around under her own power.
... is called Rin, Rinzie, Rinna, and Sissy.

At seven months old, Corrin...
... wears size 2 diapers, and 6-9 months or 6 months clothes.
... is now only breastfed at night. We are trying to wean her to formula, but both she and I enjoy the closeness of breastfeeding. Really, I don't think that I am completely ready to be done, as the plan is that this will be the last baby that I will breastfeed.
... is still fighting with eczema. Her skin cleared up for a while after we switched her formula, but it is getting bad again.
... celebrated her first Easter. She was so cute in her seersucker dress.
... is rolling over to get where she wants to go. I still haven't figured out how she moves so fast, and goes so far.
... loves any toy that Micah has. She has gotten really good at manipulating objects with her hands too. She is switching them back and forth between hands. Of course, everything goes into her mouth to be tasted.
... is called Rin, Rinny, and Sissy.

At six months old, Corrin...
... weighs 16 pounds, 8 ounces, and is 25.85 inches long. Her head circumference is 16.5 inches.
... wears size 2 diapers, and 3-6 months or mostly 6 months clothes.
... is still breastfed, but also gets formula. She drinks Similac Sensitive. UPDATE: The doctor changed her formula to Similac Alimentum. We think she may have a dairy allergy that is contributing to her eczema. Hopefully this change will help clear up the eczema.
... has really bad eczema. Her skin is really dry, and is cracking. She scratches herself constantly. She rubs her arms against you if you are holding her. She wiggle when we lay her on her back as a way of scratching. She pulls at her skin. It is horrible. I feel so bad for her. We have tried all sorts of creams. Everything works for a little while, and then the eczema comes back worse than before. I am trying to avoid the prescription creams because they have steroids.
... eats a whole container of jar food in each sitting, and is usually fussing because she wants more when she's done. My girl likes to eat.
... is sitting up much better now. She's still a little wobbly, but for the most part she stays sitting.
... refuses to sleep in her own bed through the night.
... is still a mama's girl. I'm waiting for that to change.
... still loves her brother to pieces. I think she thinks he hung the moon and the sun.
... is called Rin, Rinny, Rinna, Fat Girl, and Sissy.
|She was not feeling laying flat for these pictures.|
