eight months

  • you weigh 15 lbs. and 8 oz.
  • you are 28 inches long.
  • you are in a size 2 diaper.
  • you are in a size 2 shoe.  some of your size 1's still fit, but they are getting snug.
  • you wear mostly 6-9 month clothes, even though your little bottom and waist qualify you for 3-6 months.  you are so long!  your pajamas are size 9 month, and 6-12 month.
  • your hair is really starting to grow and thicken.  it seems to be getting a little darker, too, which i'm thankful for!
  • you are starting to want to feed yourself.  you love little puffs and teething biscuits that you can handle yourself.
  • you have been so spoiled by being rocked to sleep that you can't fall asleep on your own.  =(  you lay in bed and cry until we eventually come and get you.  you're so rotten, but i just can't stand to let you cry for more than 15 minutes!
  • you started crawling april 19th.  you were 7 months and 2 days old.
  • you started sitting up on may 4th.
  • you are a mess in the bathtub.  you love to splash the water, and if i let you go, you crawl all over the tub and play with all of your toys.  we do this after you're clean, and there's no water in the tub.
  • you love to play with daddy when he gets home at night.  you think he's funny, until it's time to go to sleep, and then you only want me!
  • you got your ears pierced may 5th.  you cried and screamed, and i know that it hurt me more than it hurt you.  you were smiling and laughing a few minutes later.  i think you look just precious!
  • you finally started eating meat for me!  i had to get smart and start disguising it with veggies.
  • you eat pretty good, but you really love your cereal.  i think if i would let you, you would only eat cereal.
  • you nurse throughout the day, but not quite as much.  if you eat a big breakfast or lunch, you don't want to nurse for a while, maybe an hour, later.
  • you still don't have any teeth.
  • you are getting up once during the night to nurse, and then again around 6am.
  • you usually go to bed around 9pm.
  • you are getting into everything!  i know it will only get worse, so we are starting to "baby proof" the house!
  • you are really starting to enjoy having sydney around!  she has discovered that you like to play, and she brings you toys, and tries to get you to play tag.  i'm sure the more you grow, the more you 2 will love each other.
 you are so beautiful.
