|I'm 8 months old, how fun!|
|Monthly photoshoots are getting pretty fun|
|His well known ba-dunk-a-dunk. We're not sure where he gets it. It ain't from mommy OR daddy and that's not a cloth diaper!|
There is no well visit for turning 8 months so I'll give you his official weight and height next month after he has his doc appointment. For now I'll just tell you what I know:
|nom nom nom!|
Size: I'm mainly putting him in 9 and 12m clothes now. I'd rather them fit a little loose then too tight. People still tell me what a chunk he is but I think he's thinning out a bit. The rolls on the upper arms are working for him though because it makes him look ripped, ha ha. I think he's close to needing to be moved up to his next sized diapers since he's never been a soaker but now on occasion, I'll find his onesie wet on his belly.
Likes: I think slyly reaching his hand ever so gently to touch my hair and then with ninja fierceness, yanking with all he's got is up on his top 2 favorite things. The second one being raking his
Dislikes: His mesh food bag thingy when it goes empty, being gassy, cutting teeth (Yay we have a tooth and another one any second now!)
Feeding:Breast feeding is going strong. I restarted my period (both kids at 5 1/2 months) and thankfully haven't noticed a drop in milk supply. The cool thing about the second time around is that I could care less about what I pump out (I actually LOATHE pumping...and side note, is it "couldN'T care less or "could" care less?? That's always confused me. Because I really currently COULD care even LESS than I do now about it. But anyways...) and I don't let it stress me out that my kid isn't getting enough, because clearly he is. But that darn pump can really send us mommas down a dangerous path of self doubt. Curse you pump!!Wait, I didn't mean that, I still love you and need you pump. I'm just hungry :(
So yes, feeding is going well and big boy foods are messy. He hasn't shown any signs of food allergies so I'm not really following the "wait-3-days-before-introducing-new-foods" rule. If it's mashable, (and a "real" food) he's getting a sample.
Sleeping: Hmm. This has been frustrating since the budding of a tooth a few weeks ago. His normal is to wake up happy and play by himself for a while before he stares directly at the monitor and bellows out to me to come get him. I swear it sounds like "maaaaaaa!" Now he'll wake up multiple times a night or mid nap crying which I know is not his normal. It sounds like his pain cry so I'm blaming the tooth that popped up already and the other one thats thisclose to popping through as well. Sigh. I'd like my good sleeper back though. Baby tylenol helps but I obviously don't want to give him that EVERY night just so he'll sleep. Eli would get a couple of teeth at a time and then have like a 3 month reprieve so hopefully once his second bottom tooth is in, he'll take after big bro and be back to normal for a few months. Fingers crossed!
Milestones:As mentioned a bajillion times already above, my little man has his first tooth! He's also been scooting quite a bit, but not actually crawling. He's mastered sitting up by himself so I can now skip the mound of pillows propped behind him. He's babbling a lot and starting to make legit sounds like "da da, ba ba, ma ma" and his favorite, "oooow."
|Poor kid was grinding his bottom tooth into his upper gum and making it bleed :(|
|"You're so handsome"..."Who me??"|
|Couldn't cover up the guns with a onesie, no siree...|
|All the heart eyes!|
There you have it!
