Eight Months

Colton - You are EIGHT months old????

When did this happen? What have you been up to this month???

You weigh around 18 lbs. You wear size 3 diapers and size 9 month or 6-12 month clothes.

You and Ryan both got sick this month! Thankfully it didn't last long and didn't go to your ears!

You wake between 7:30-8am. You eat some fruit with cereal and take a bottle. You take a bottle at 12 and sometimes a fruit or veggie depending on how hungry you are. You have another bottle after your afternoon nap between 3:30-4 then your last bottle of the night at 7pm.

You are a great eater. We have moved on to stage 2 foods and you eat everything we feed you. You love bananas, green beans, carrots, peaches, sweet potatoes, squash and pears. I've also given you some real bananas and you loved them. You haven't figured out how to feed yourself yet but you can pick up cheerios or puffs.

You are so content. You are happy to just sit and watch. You love to watch whatever your big brother Ryan is doing. Right now you seem to have a very laid back personality.

You are finally sitting up unassisted. You started out the month sitting up with the boppy around you but you have gained some confidence and will sit by yourself.

You have the sweetest personality! You love to hug and love for me to hold you. You love to reach your arms up for me to pick you up.

You love when we sing. You always smile when we are singing and dancing.

You take two daily naps. Your take a 30-60 min nap in the morning (depending on if we are at home or on the go) and a good 2-3 hour afternoon nap. You go to bed at 7pm and sleep great through the night. I am SO thankful you are a great sleeper!

You have two bottom teeth coming in. Thankfully no signs of bad teething from you. You always seem so happy.

You are easily adaptable and love being on the go. You nap in the car a lot but that just works for us.

I can hardly believe that you are already 8 months old. Where has the time gone? You are growing so fast and doing new things every day!

You are so sweet and bring so much joy to our lives. We love you more and more every day!
