8 month update {andrew}

8 months!  Can’t time just slow down?!  My little baby isn’t so little anymore.  I honestly love him more each day and am holding onto each precious baby moment.  Andrew’s 8th month was a big one, and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it.

Age: 8 months on October 20, 2013

Weight:  21 pounds 1 ounce  (83rd percentile)    Height: 30.5 inches (off the chart)


Sleeps: about 7:00 pm – 6:30 am {sometimes wakes up once a night & while he was learning to crawl he woke up a few times a night for about four or five days}

Naps: about one hour each morning {9:30-10:30} and about two hours each afternoon {starting around 1:30 pm}

Eats: nurses about every three -four hours, eats rice cereal or oatmeal with homemade fruit puree in the morning around 7:00 am, & homemade purees {now including meat} for lunch around 11:30 am and dinner around 4:30 pm {some favorites are apples, pumpkin/apple/banana, green bean/apple, strawberry/banana, white sweet potatoes, peas with chicken, and more!}, fruit puffs for snacks which Andrew picks up and feeds to himself

Loves: CRAWLING, going from sitting to crawling to sitting again, pulling up on furniture to his knees, chewing on everything including his fingers & his Aden + Anais blankets, playing with all his toys and books, going on walks, being outside, laughing with his big sisters, snuggling, babbling back and forth with mommy and daddy, laughing, eating fruit puffs while sitting in his highchair

New this month: crawls, pulls up to knees, lowered the crib all the way down, picks up fruit puffs with pointer finger-thumb grasp, object permanence, went on a swing at the park

This month we: took Andrew to the pumpkin patch for the first time, took Andrew to the doctor for a lingering cold/cough
