Eight months has gone by so quickly, and Grant has grown to be such a happy baby. He loves that he is mobile now, and he spends his days army crawling to get to whatever toy he sets his eyes on...although his favorites are still water bottles, phones, and keys. He is the best sleeper, loves his big sisters, and has the happiest disposition. I better get started with the first birthday party planning!
*You weigh 17.8 pounds.
*You still go down for bed right at 8pm. You can't make it much later as you get really fussy. You only like to sleep in your crib, car seat, or swing. You won't fall asleep in our arms anymore (tear).
*You haven't had to go back to sleep in your swing in several weeks. Good thing too, because you are about to max out the weight limit for it!
*You will wake up around 7am wanting a bottle. I give it to you in bed (it's alright because you still don't have any teeth!), and you will drink the 8 ounces super fast.
*Nap time is still wonderful. You will sleep from 2pm until around 5pm. Your morning naps are still scattered, but it doesn't seem to bother you.
*You still love to sleep with your whole body as close to the bumper pads as you can get. You even try to bury your face deep into the bumper pads.
*When we put you down for your naps, you will play with the toys in your crib for a while (sometimes even an hour). I love that you have the freedom of mobility now, you are so much happier!
*Speaking of mobility, you are officially army crawling everywhere. You aren't very fast yet, but you are one determined little boy to get to where you want to be.
*You are finally starting to like your solid foods a little better. You love the squeeze pouches with the fruit and veggies mixed with oatmeal.
*You still drink 8 ounces of milk every 2-3 hours.
*You love to hold your bottle with one hand while you feed yourself. I think it's just to show off your skills.
*Your size 6-month sleepers and outfits are getting a little snug. The smocked outfits still fit at that size, but you are wearing mostly 9-month clothes.
*You are still in size 2 diapers, but they are getting really snug.
*Still no teeth, but you are still chewing on everything that you can.
*You love love love Lila, and she loves you too. You are so happy when she talks "baby talk" to you.
*You are so ticklish, and we can always get you to giggle by ticking your inner thighs and under your chin. You also love to be scared and laugh hysterically when we say "BOO!".
