8 Months

Age: 8 monthsWeight: Probably close to 20lbs Length: unknown (too lazy to do it myself, 9 month appt in a month) Size: 6-9 or 6-12 month clothes, size 3 diapers (4 at night) Eyes: Blue Hair: His hair is long enough that he legitimately has “bed hair” in the morning. Though I’m probably the only one that really notices. Teeth: Zip, zero, nada. Sleeping: Attempting a later bedtime in anticipation of Day Light Savings Time ending, but still going down at 6-6:30pm usually. Sometimes later if we are out with friends or have people over. Naps: Transitioning to 2. Some days they are around 2 hours each, while other days they are both only 1 hour. Once in awhile still needs 3. Eating: Around 25-30 ounces of formula/day. Three meals including a combination of puffs, oatmeal, fruits, veggies, bits of what we are having. Peas make him gag. He LOVED the rigatoni the Beau made last week. Movement: Able to scoot backwards while on tummy sometimes, but not officially crawling yet. Likes to have us help him stand most of the time. Wants to pull up on things to a standing position but can’t quite do it yet. Took a couple of steps while I held his hands last week. Can “move” a little by going from sitting position to tummy in order to get what he wants. Milestones: Makes sign for “milk” though we aren’t sure he understands it yet. Outings: Visiting Grandma and Grandpa Klatke. Halloween Party at Amanda and Sheena’s. Favorite toys/activities: Remotes, anything that isn’t a toy, measuring cup. Words/sounds: Says “yea” once in awhile. Grunting. Moaning while sucking on his pacifier (which makes for a weird noise but seems to help him fall asleep). Memorable moments: Grabbing bubbles in the bath water, then splashing more in order to create more bubbles. Repeat.
