Happy 8 months, Jack Robert. I can't believe that we're 2/3 of the way through your monthly onesie stickers.
Weight - I'm not really sure...but guessing over 20 pounds now. You feel really heavy to us. How's that for accurate?
Length - ??
Head Circumference - ??
Clothing Size - Your 9m clothes fit snugly and your 12m clothes fit well now. We moved you into some 12-18m sleepers, which are big but I just really didn't want to buy more of the 9-12m size for you to wear for just another few weeks. Diapers - you've moved up to size 4 and the large setting of the BGs. We've added another insert into each cloth diaper to keep up with you!
Sleeping - No complaints here! You're down to two longer naps now, for the most part, and still sleep from 8:30 - 7:00 each night. You have been waking up by 6:30 some mornings, but you don't seem ready to get up yet. You usually have a bottle and go back down about an hour later.
Teeth - I can't believe it, but still no teeth.
I don't need no stinkin' teeth.
Eating - You are eating two meals a day - usually a fruit, yogurt, and mum-mum at lunch and a fruit, veggie, and some sort of grain at dinner. I've been feeding you small pieces of our dinner quite a bit since you love feeding yourself. You mastered the pincer grasp this month and do a great job with most foods, unless they're slippery. You take between 20 - 25 oz of formula a day.
Movement - You've been doing a lot of rocking back and forth on all fours lately, but no crawling yet. We think you're close!
Milestones - You went to your first birthday party for your friend Emily, who turned three in May. You celebrated Mother's Day with me and your first Memorial Day. You went to your first library storytime and basketball game. You did NOT appreciate all the cheering our side of the bleachers did when Lakewood won.
Favorite toys/activities - You love hanging out with Brownie the Bear in your room. We bought a Baby Einstein last month and put it in occasionally in the evenings when we're winding down, and I don't know what took us so long to bring one of those into our house. (But seriously, I could have filmed that in our basement and been a millionaire. Drat!) You still love Scout and reading all sorts of books.
Dislikes - When we leave the room, when we won't let you have our phones or iPad. Loud noises.
What we love - Your big open-mouthed kisses (also a new 7-month trick) and your sweet disposition.
What we're looking forward to - summer fun with Baby Jack!
We love you, sugar pie!
