8 Months Old

As often as I say "time flies" with Jack, I also say "I think this is my favorite age" just as frequently.
Sure, I miss him as the sweet little newborn that did nothing but sleep all day, but I wouldn't trade his freshly turned 8 month age for anything. We have so much fun with the kid. Plus, seeing him learn so many new skills and everything is absolutely incredible. I love it. I love him.

At 8 Months Jack is:
  • Sitting up [but still can fall backward at any moment]
  • Eating 2-3 solid meals a day
  • Wearing 6-9 mo. clothes
  • Still sleeping from 9:30pm-7:30am, eats, then sleeps til 10:30am..
  • Clapping
  • Sporting two baby teeth
  • In love with measuring cups 
  • Still wearing size 3 diapers 
  • Has incredible eye sight and hearing [like on a super hero level] 
  • Spent his first night away without mommy and daddy :(
  • Insanely cute
  • Gags on food with too much texture (cheerios will have to wait
  • Willing to nap, if it's in his parent's big, comfy bed
  • Crawls only backwards and does efficient 360s on the floor
  • Makes strangers swoon
  • Always getting his thighs squeezed, butt spanked, cheeks pinched, and hair pet by his adoring parents
  • Drooling like a dog [like his 3 mo. old self again]
  • Laughs hysterically when we tickle him 
  • Is rotated between his playpen, jumper, activity center, mommy's arms, and the floor throughout the day 
  • Still sleeps with his lullaby music on
  • Around 21 lbs 
  • Always making us laugh
  • Nurses 4-6 times a day
  • Hates when we wipe his mouth and pick his nose 
  • Enjoying bath time [except when it's time to rinse his hair] 
  • Points at things with his cute, little baby pointer finger
  • Likes sitting on Daddy's head
  • Still completely fascinated by his hands
  • Loved so much
