8 Months!!

Thursday, December 26, 2013

It's so strange to me that you're already 8 months old.  You have grown and changed so much in the past month.  You're scooting you little body everywhere, feeding yourself, and becoming "Destructo-Baby"! I feel like at any moment you'll be walking and talking.  But, you're still our little baby.  We love you so much, Wyatt!

What you did this month:
  • You weight is still holding steady around 20 pounds.  
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers. We tried the Pampers 12-hour protection but I still prefer the Swaddlers.
  • You are wearing size 6-12 months and 9/12 months clothes.
  • You are nursing every 2-3 hours during the day.
  • You eat solids for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • You tried pumpkin & banana this month  and seem to really like it.  You also started eating a few Cheerios for little snacks each day.  You've also enjoyed some toast and green beans.
  • We've started a new schedule, again, this month. You're going down for bed around 8.
  • You are taking naps around 10:00 and 3:00, and you sleep for 1.5 - 2 hours.
  • You are trying so hard to crawl.  You can get your legs under you and you start rocking but no forward movements yet. You usually just end up on your belly.  You've definitely gotten your fair share of bruises from trying, though.
  • When you see your kitty-cats, you "eow", it's so cute. (You were actually doing that at 7 months but I forgot to write it down.)  You also look for them when I say kitty-cat and meow.
  • You have started to clap.  It's usually when you're playing and really happy, and sometimes when I'm singing.
  • You got your first two teeth this month!! The two bottom middle teeth.
  • We celebrated your first Thanksgiving and Christmas this month.
  • You met your Uncle Jared and Aunt Jen for the first time.
  • You stayed with a baby-sitter for the first time.
  • You took a bath with da-da at Nana and Grandpa's.
  • You currently hate anything that requires you to lie down...changing diapers, getting dressed, etc.
