Our youngest turned 8 months old!
...and he is as sweet as he looks!
You are still working on sitting! You can do it for a little longer all of the time, but then you see something that you want on the floor and you roll yourself onto the floor so you can get it. Even though you are behind your siblings with this skill, you are still pretty mobile. You can pretty much roll to whatever you want. You love to play in your exersaucer or just roll around on the floor with toys. I am not sure if you will ever sit because you just would rather be rolling around.
I promised in last month's post that I would get his schedule figured out before you turned 8 months, and we did! I started stretching your schedule to a 4 hour schedule. Basically you nurse 4-5 times a day and eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner with us. We stopped giving you your acid reflux medicine and I am even able eat dairy again. You still spit up a lot but it doesn't seem to hurt or bother you anymore. You also love drinking out a sippy cup at every meal!
You actually don't take the paci much anymore. You were only a paci baby for about a month, ha. You are obsessed with tags though. This reminds us so much of your brother. You love to find the tag on toys and you love your taggie blanket, just like your brother. You are reminding me of your sister right now because you are constantly moving your hands and feet, especially when we are feeding you baby food.
You LOVE baby food! You eat three times a day and eat between 1-2 of the big containers. You are still chocking on puffs and are not sure what to do with them, so we will try those again later. You really love the vegetables and actually the fruit baby food takes you a few more tries to love.
You are really enjoying being outside this month! We have been going on walks a lot and I don't even need to pack anything for you. You just sit there and look around, happy as can be.
You had your first bad sickness this month. You had croup and a double ear infection. You have been so healthy, so it has been hard seeing you so sick!
You and your cousin, Brielle, are really loving each other. Most babies at this age just play side by side, but you two really interact with each other, laugh, and grab at each other. You even share toys!
You are wearing size 12 clothes, 3 diapers, and 3 shoes.
