Happy 8 months


I'm not sure how much you weigh, but I'm guessing 18 1/2 - 19 pounds.
You have become even more fun this past month.  You are crawling everywhere and pulling yourself up on everything and walking around a little bit.  Sometimes you forget you need to hold on and let go and fall over.

You are still saying da da da da da da,  na na na na, mum mum mum.  Just yesterday you added ba, ba, ba.

You have just started waving and dancing and really laughing.  Melts my heart, so...cute!

You still love your little pool and splashing around.

 You are wearing 6-9 month clothes mostly.

You are still eating a lot!  You occasionally take 4 bottles day, but usually it's still 5 bottles per day.   You are eating cereal in the am and a fruit and vegetable at lunch, and a fruit and vegetable in the evening.   I am still preparing everything.   You are eating avocados, sweet potatoes, bananas, carrots, peas, green beans, peaches, apples and puffs.  You still haven't quite figured out the sippy cup, but are working at it.  You really like water.

You are still wearing a size 3 diaper.  Diaper changes have still been difficult lately, you want to flip over on your stomach every time we change you and we have to nearly wrestle you to flip you back over and keep you on  your back.  We're both usually sweating by the time we're done.  We've started saying, "No."   I don't know when you'll start understanding, though because you usually just smile really big at us.
You didn't play with too many toys this past month, your favorite thing by far was crawling around and pulling yourself up.  You really like your walker and running up and down the kitchen.
You love trying to chase after the dogs.

Last month I thought you were maybe starting to experience some separation anxiety, but that was better this past month.

Your eyes still look like a deep blue color, but we are starting to see some grey also.
Your hair is blonde.

You are sleeping about 11 1/2 hours per night.   You go to sleep pretty easily, thankfully.  You stay awake 2-4 hours at a time now.  Naps have been much better lately.  You usually give me an hour nap two times per day, and about 3-4 days a week you still need a 3rd nap that is about 30 minutes long.

You have two tiny teeth on the bottom.  So far you have handled teething really well.  
You are usually a pretty happy baby.  You have become quite the ham - you love having everyone's attention and you smile at everyone.  

You are our sweet, precious gift from God.
We love you!  Happy 8 months
