Our little guy is 8 months old!
He’s in 9 and 12 month clothes (though, we put a 12-month outfit on him this weekend and it barely fit over his head.)
He weighs 18 pounds, 13 ounces. (I weighed him at home and thought he was right at 19 pounds, give or take two ounces, so my scale is very close!) He’s eating solids twice a day, but we’re starting three times a day this week. He’s still nursing 5-6 times a day. He occasionally sleeps through the night, mainly when his teeth aren’t bothering him.
I think we’re heading into the pulling up territory. He’s looking at things like he *wants* to pull up, but isn’t exactly sure how to do it yet.
He’s sitting up a lot more now. And, of course, rolling and spinning. The kid gets around. He’s dealing with his play yard (gate – playpen – whatever you want to call it) pretty well. He can move, he has toys, and we’re not constantly moving him out of things he shouldn’t be in. Oh, and he does this great dragging-crawl. I got it on video (on my iPhone), but it’s sideways. Hoping I can share it with you at some point.
Chloe has realized that she has to move quickly if she doesn’t want her tail grabbed.
Still only 8 teeth, but I’m wondering if there isn’t another one on the way. (He spiked a fever Monday, and we weren’t sure if it’s virus or tooth-related. Doctor confirmed a virus, and we’re 95% sure he has at least one more tooth coming in.)
He graduated to his duck bathtub and loves it! We spend more time in baths now, as he can splash so much more.
Each day is getting more and more fun (with the exception of the past day or two, in which we admit we’re just trying to survive!)
