Isla at 8 months

So this month's accomplishment was getting Isla to sleep through the night. I got tough and we moved Isla's crib into Niamh's room. Then I did the CIO (cry it out) method with her, which was really only 1 naptime in which she only cried 20 minutes and since then, she takes 2 naps a day and sleeps about 7-8 hours a night. You would think by now, Isla being my 4th baby that I would have gotten her on this night time routine a lot sooner, for both our sakes, but I guess I wanted to keep her with me a little longer. Selfish, I know, but I can't deny I am enjoying having my side of the bed back and getting a pretty good nights rest. Isla is growing so much, probably more now that she is sleeping tons. She has 6 teeth now, 3 on top and 3 on bottom. She is almost crawling, she gets on all 4's and almost moves forward then goes down on her belly. She likes to roll to where she needs to go and it works for her. She is so happy most of the time, we have taken her to countless movies and two UNLV sporting events and she's loved it. She has really taken an interest in everything we eat and yells if we don't share with her. Her little feisty personality is definitely becoming more apparent. She has the smoothest skin, I could just kiss her all day long.
