Emily's 8 month update

You can follow us on Instagram to watch Emily grow.

I hate to say it but I haven't got Emily weighed. I feel like I always say this, but I know that she is happy and full. She is being weighed on Thursday, so I will pop back to let you all know. 

Emily is still in size 4 nappies. She is in 6-9 clothing, however her leggings are coming up a little short, think she may need 9-12. She is such a tall baby! 

Emily's hair is really growing rapidly. It is still blonde, not a really fair blonde but more a golden blonde. Its starting to thicken out a lot more now.

Emily's eyes are still bright blue, a lot of people said that they would fade, but that isn't the case at all. They are as bright as ever. 

Emily's vocabulary is constantly growing, on top of the little list of words from her last update, she can now say Up and Hey. 

Emily has two teeth, they are both at the bottom and came through together.

Emily is still loving her food, we are yet to find something she dislikes. You can find out all about her progress here.

In the night garden is still Emily's favourite show, She smiles, laughs and giggles everytime upsy daisy comes on television. She also has found a new love for Thomas the Tank.

Emily can crawl backwards, She is also starting to go forwards but she seems to topple forward. Don't think it will be long before she has mastered it. 

Emily loves bath time still, she has learned how to splash and covers the bathroom. She also has learned to use the side of the bath to stand up, and climbs out of her bath seat. 

Emily can now wave on demand. Every time you say hi or bye she waves and smiles. 

Emily can clap.

She will pull herself to standing using the sofa, or anything she can grab a hold of. She also holds onto the bars in her cot using them to pull herself up. 

Emily blows kisses.

Emily is playing on her knees majority of the time now. She pulls herself from sitting onto her knees. 

Emily stands up one handed, she lets go of the sofa while she is standing. She then starts trying to walk which scares me silly. 

When Emily wakes up in the morning, she cuddles right into you and waves. It is the cutest thing ever. 

Emily is also throwing mighty tantrums. 

She also pulls of her hats constantly, her sun hat and also her knitted little hat. 

Emily can change the program on BBC iplayer when she uses the ipad. She scans across the various programs and taps the one she wants. It's so cute, but I can't get over how she already has picked this up. Little miss smarty pants. 

Emily is constantly slapping, she slaps on her hands highchair, she slaps everything. 

Emily is still sleeping through the night, she also has two 45 minute naps at 11.30 and 3.30. Although she is trying her best to drop her second nap.
