8 months

My sweet boy, you are 8 months old today. You are changing so much from month to month, and I am boggled that only 8 months ago you were just a tiny baby with a little jaundice.

You are now eating 3 meals a day and drinking 3-4 bottles a day. You can grasp small items with your index and thumb and love to feed yourself cheerios, rice chex and graham crackers. You're not yet exhibiting any interest in crawling, and still dislike being on your tummy. You do sit like a champ, and love to reach for your toys (airplane and maraca are your favorite). You still like the Jumper, and will also happily sit in the Bumbo as long as you have a snack in hand. You are an excellent clapper and also give sweet kisses to Mama and wonderful hugs to Daddy. You love the bath and prefer to lay on your back so you can get maximum splashing.

(Apologies if you get a glimpse of his boy parts - I was trying to keep it G rated, but I don't have a very steady hand with the video camera....)

You've begun to sleep longer and more deeply. You are napping more consistently, and will usually nap for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, twice a day! You are an early riser, but when you go to bed for the night, you're now only waking up once or twice. Mama appreciates that!!

Finally, you've got 5 teeth! The most recent 3 just came through in the last week. You are very defensive of your top teeth, and do your best to keep them under wraps.

8 months already? I swear you just posted that he was 6 months old. Where did the last couple months go? He is so cute. I love the splashing videos. My boys never liked lying down in the tub.

He's such a sweetie pie. It's great you're recording his life like this!
