You are 8 months old, baby boy!
I can't believe how much you've grown!
Here is your life this last month:
You weighed 18lbs 2oz last week when we took you to the doctor, so I think it's safe to say that you still weigh pretty close to that.
I'm guessing you are approximately 26-27 inches long.
You are still a good eater! You eat 6oz bottles 5 or 6 times a day and you eat baby food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner too. You really like anything we give you except peas! You still just don't enjoy them at all. You also love mashed potatoes, crackers, and pickles.
I don't know where to even begin with your crazy sleep habits. You were starting to get better about sleeping then you got sick, but I think we are getting better again. What I do know is that you are getting better at naps and that makes me so happy! You are taking at least one long nap almost everyday (except when mommy keeps you out all day and messes up your schedule).
You've had an ear infection this month, but we got it at the beginning and are so glad we took you to the doctor when we did. Other than that you are a healthy baby boy!
You are really inbetween clothes sizes and it's driving your mom crazy to find something that fits you everyday! You are starting to outgrow your 3-6 month clothes, but are still a bit small for the 6-12 months. Mostly you are just to short for a bigger size!
You are still in a size 3 diaper.
Your hair is still growing a lot and today you had your second haircut! You really aren't good with haircuts because it means you have to sit still. Your hair is light brown and thick!
You have six teeth! Four on top and two on bottom! They are starting to show more each day and you want to chew everything!
You have learned how to give "sugars" which means you open your mouth real wide and lean in and get a kiss. It's so sweet!
You are so close to crawling! You go backwards and that frustrates you so much! You are starting to move one leg forward, but aren't sure what to do next and after several attempts at not getting anywhere you give up. You will get it down soon though.
You love to stand up and jump! You tried a jumper for the first time this week and absolutely loved it! You still really like to kick and stomp your feet too. You are just moving nonstop!
You still adore your Marley dog and want to pull at her and pet her and get her kisses. She tolerates you so well and I'm thankful for that. The two of you provide entertainment to each other and us everyday!
We love your precious personality. You are a ham and smile for everyone that talks to you! We like that you are social and are so easy going. You are just so happy!
We love love love you! Thank you for being your little sweet self. You are a reminder to us everyday of all the blessings God has given us. We adore you Hudson William!
