8 Months Old!

Bud,

You're 8 months old!

8 Months

I cannot believe that you're going to be a year old in just 4 months. I will pretty much be in denial about it until the time comes.

This month you're weighing in at 20 pounds 2 ounces. You are 29 inches long. You're wearing size 3 diapers and you were only in 9 month clothes for about a minute it seemed. I've already boxed most of them away and you're mainly wearing 12 month clothes.

This month a lot happened in your little world. You got your first hair cut for one and you had your official Texan portraits taken. Also known as you mom plopped you down in a field of bluebonnets and took a ridiculous amount of pictures of you.

You also got your first tooth! It's your bottom, right, front tooth. I thought both bottom teeth were coming in, but you refused to let me check them out. We can clearly see the one though and it's sharp!

8 Months

You also finally started to army crawl. I thought you were going to give up and skip crawling all together, but one day I looked over and you had army crawled from the blanket of toys to across the room and heading for my plate that had my lunch on it. I should have known that food would be your motivator! Of course it took you awhile to figure out how to go forward. You spent a few weeks just scooting backwards. You have also started trying to pull open and have learned that you can open cabinets. You haven't quite discovered how fun it is to open doors and pull stuff out, but I'm sure that's coming soon.

You talk a lot and it's mainly just bah bah bah and goo goo ga ga's. You'll throw out a mama here and there, and daddy is trying his hardest to get you to say dada. You've come close a few times. Your dad and I also swear that your responded to me one night with, "mmm kay." You have yet to repeat that one though. I also think you try to say hi here and there.

This month you really started to play more independently. You still have a lot of moments where you want constant attention and entertainment from us, but you are also sometimes content with just playing on your own and figuring out the things around you.

8 Months

You still love to eat. There's been only one occasion that you flat out refused to eat anything I put in front of you. Your favorite things are blueberries and strawberries. You also love yogurt and pasta. You've started eating breakfast and lunch with the big kids at school as well.

I can't wait to see what the next few months have in store for us. As much as I am in denial and completely not ready for it, you are very much becoming less of a baby and more of a little boy.

Love you Bud!

  1. I cannot believe this guy is 8 months old!

    And, just once, I want to meet a kid who got his four canines before any other teeth. It NEVER happens that way - always, there's an incisor first, but I want to meet a Dracula baby.
