What is your 8 month olds feeding schedule?

My daughter currently eats three meals and 5 bottles. We are trying to cut out a bottle. She also seems so hungry lately, sucking down all her bottles, so I am trying to increase her solids and introduce more "real food". Just curious how your schedules are. Thanks in advance.

Connor will be 8 months on the 19th.

His schedule

3.5 ozs cereal
stage 2 jar of fruit

3.5 ozs cereal
stage 2 jar of fruit or veggi

Afternoon 6 oz bottle

Stage 2 dinner
Jar of stage 2 veggie

Before bed
6oz bottle (which he doesn't always finish)

He used to drink a 3 oz bottle with each meal but wasn't always interested so I combined into an afternoon bottle before his nap.

He also drinks a juice/water combo as he wants during the day. Never more than 6 ozs a day.

Sarah is 9 months, but she has cereal with fruit for breakfast and dinner and then a meat and veggie meal and a jar of fruit for lunch. I put about 20 Gerber puffs in a bowl and she feeds herself those throughout the day. She also has about 5 bottles. I've been trying to up her solid food, but she has very little interest in cereal anymore, so getting her to eat that is a chore. I figure she's at least getting nutrition from the bottles.

We did try yougrt, but she had a lot of problems digesting it. I've been putting off starting cottage cheese because I fear the same thing. We also tried pastina but she hated it. I'm going to try it again now that she's good at eating the puffs.
