8 Month Roundup

H is now 8 months old! It's a pretty happy time for him, he's mobile, relatively easy going and not too tough to handle (not that he doesn't have his moments!). Unofficially he weighs 17.2 pounds. Not sure how long he is, but he is one tall guy - I swear his feet almost reach my knees when I carry him in the Bjorn! We've been bad about taking photos on each monthly "birthday", but here's a lovely shot of what we see most these days - H crawling like crazy, often after the dog!

Other things going on with HDog at 8 months:

  • no teeth yet, but plenty of times when we attribute crabbiness with impending teeth
  • wears size 6-12 month clothes and has started wearing shoes
  • eats 3 meals day & has tried baby oatmeal, baby rice cereal, peas, green beans, carrots, squash, sweet potatos, apples, pears, blueberries, raspberries, bananas, plums, and probably a few more I'm forgetting
  • likes to play with Cheerios, but not eat them just yet
  • naps twice a day, for about 1 1/2 hours each time
  • is way too cool for the exersaucer
  • crawls at break neck speed
  • likes to pull up on things, often just to his knees, but sometimes to standing
  • loves to read books
  • has his mattress dropped all the way down and bumpers removed
