Our little big guy is 8 months old today! He is so full of spunk and love. Henry adores his big sisters and squeals with excitement when he sees the bus pull up to the front of the house after school. He smiles when Josh calls and he hears the set ring tone I have for his daddy.
At 8 months old:
-5 teeth, one on the top, four on the bottom and working on another top tooth
-sits up on his own from a laying down position
-loves to feed himself beginner finger foods
-enjoys pureed fruits more than veggies
-nurses every 3-4 hours during the day
-rolls and scoots to move around
-crawls backwards, but not forward movement yet
-pulls up to knees and occasionally to feet
-still practicing taking a bottle of breast milk so mama can have more than a few hours away
-usually takes two naps a day, morning and afternoon
-sleep is still unpredictable at night, but getting better.
-wears 9 month and sometimes 12 month clothes
Henry puts everything he can in his mouth and is always on the move, as seen in the pictures I tried taking this morning. The 8 month sticker lasted only seconds on the pillow before he tore it and put it in his mouth. He didn't want to sit still or show his adorable grin to me while taking pictures.
