8 Months brought your first ear infection. You had been waking up in the night (more than normal) and you didn’t seem like your usual happy-go-lucky self. I had a feeling that your ears might be the reason so I took you in and sure enough you had an infection.
When we were there they took your measurements and you were:
Height: 26 inches
Weight: 18.11 lbs
You wear 6-9 and 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers. We still use size 4 at night just to be safe!
You started crawling this month and it took you about a day and you were off. You are ALL OVER the place now. You do whatever you can to chase after your big brother. You’ve even started pulling up on the couch, chairs, your activity table, etc. It’s like once you figured out you could move, you were a pro!
You still take two naps at Michele’s and a catnap on the way home.
Still eating great and now you love puffs and have started eating more table food.
Your sleeping has gotten a bit better too. We’re down to one wake up a night and some nights you are even sleeping straight through. hopefully we’ll get it figured out soon 🙂
You still love to nurse and we pretty much nurse when we’re at home and always at bedtime.
At Michele’s you drink between 4-6 ounces about every 4 hours. We also switched you to the next level nipples on your bottles and you chug them now!
You’re still the happiest guy around. We still get comments constantly about what a good baby you are and we sure do agree.
You reach your arms up to be picked up and it’s so stinkin cute!
You also discovered your voice this month and it’s pretty funny. Your voice is really deep and raspy so every time you squeal it sounds like it hurts haha!
Wonder what you’re doing/thinking here haha!
Still no teeth!
We love you so much Brooks! Being your mama is such a joy!
