8 months today

As of today we have survived 8 months. That means all of us. I consider it an achievement of the greatest magnitude.

Yet again pilfered from Stacie‘s site, here are a list of common 8 month developmental milestones:

90% of babies can…
bear some weight on legs yes  
feed self a cracker does a banana count?  
look for dropped object yes  
rake with fingers a tiny object and pick it up in fist yes  
turn in the direction of a voice yes  
75% of babies can…
pass an object from hand to hand yes  
stand holding on to someone or something yes  
object if you try to take a toy away yes  
work to get a toy out of reach yes  
play peekaboo her favorite game.  
get into sitting position from stomach not yet, but she’s working on it  
50% of babies can…
creep or crawl yes  
pull up to a standing position from sitting yes  
pick up tiny object with thumb and finger yes  
say “mama” or “dada” indiscriminately not really. we both answer to the name “baba”  
25% of babies can…
play patty-cake or wave bye-bye no  
walk holding on to furniture she did it once, but I’d say it was a fluke  
stand alone momentarily not really  
understand “no” I think so, but she likes to ignore me already so it’s hard to tell  

Here are a few pictures from her morning exertions.

Standing up and eating her books is one of her favorite past times. 🙂

  1. She’s so cute, and I see she’s checking off quite a few of the 8 month checklist! X

  2. What a great list!

  3. My sweetie is 8 1/2 months old, this was a handy list to check him against! He plays pat-a-cake, but he does it by holding our hands and making us clap, like we made him clap, lol. He doesn’t clap his own hands.

  4. Aw, seems like just last week she was 7 mos. old.
