Mommy Mondays: 8 months

Weight: 16lbs 14 oz (+8lbs 10oz) (from 6 months)

 Height: 27.75 inches (+7.5 inches)  (from 6 months)
 Head: 17 inches (from 6 months)

Sleep:  He's pretty much settled into a routine these days - one or two wakes.  But when he wakes more than once, Thatboy usually takes care of one of them.  Which usually involves a quick cuddle and back to bed he goes.

Eating: Thatbaby now eats 3 meals a day, even at daycare.  His nursing hasn't decreased at all, and he's still eating about every 3 hours.  Even at daycare, he's still drinking 16 oz over the 10 hours he's there.  And he eats with abandon.  Boy loves food.  He also voices his opinion, he fusses until he gets what he wants.  And after months of being fine with tomato, it looks like he's developed a sensitivity/allergy.  So we're steering clear of the raw stuff for the time being.

Best Moment: The crawling!  The first time he did it I was speechless, and another attorney walked into my office so I couldn't even fully appreciate it.  But he's been on the move ever since.  Which is both exciting and terrifying.

Monthly Wisdom: I feel like a first time mom right now since this early movement is so early for me.  That and Thatbaby's sense of curiosity.  Babyproofing is a high priority here, whereas Thatkid we barely did anything.  I feel like I'm constantly trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing. 

Goals for the Upcoming Month:
- More baby signs.  I think he understands them, because he goes crazy when I sign "milk" but he isn't signing back yet.
- Troubleshooting how keep Thatbaby out of the dog's food and water. 

Things Thatbaby is doing:
- waving
- babbling.  He has 3 main "phrases" - mamamamama, babababababa, and doodoodoodoodoo
- causing trouble.  He likes to chew on cords, touch light sockets, play in the dog's water, eat the dog's food, hit the television, suck on the remote control
- getting very upset when anyone takes something away from him
- he's in the convertible car seat!
- sitting in the shopping cart


  1. How is he so big already?! Time really does fly. Can't believe he's crawling!!

  2. So cute! That's such an adorable stage. What a little cutie.
