8 Month Update

Height: about 28 inches
Weight: about 18 pounds
Head Circumference: about 17 inches
Movement: You are officially a crawler. You can pretty much get anywhere now by crawling. Your favorite thing to do is pull yourself up on things. I have a feeling you will be walking sooner rather than later. You can sit from standing up and you can also go from crawling to sitting which is a big accomplishment because you used to just get stuck on your stomach.
Eating Habits/New Foods: You are eating 3 meals a day. Breakfast usually consists of a 1/4 cup of rice cereal or oatmeal and about 2 ounces of some fruit. Lunch is a fruit &/or veggie and maybe some pasta. Dinner is a meat & a veggie. Throughout the day you will snack on some puffs or a mum. You eat about 3-4 ounces per meal. Your milk has cut back to about 4-5 times a day instead of every 3 hours. You also drink a good bit of water out of a sippy cup now. Foods we have tried: pretty much all fruits and veggies. You loved a new chicken dish with sweet potatoes, leeks, and carrots. You have started eating pasta, cheese, and a little bit of yogurt and whole milk mixed into things.
Sleeping Patterns: This month has been a crazy month as far as sleep goes. Now that you know how to stand up are aren't sleeping as good. You will stand up in the middle of the night, but then you can't figure out how to sit back down so you cry. It is getting better though each night. Bedtime is still at 10 and you are waking up around 8 nowadays. Naps happen randomly throughout the day.
Sounds/Words: You say Mama and Dada. You have also said Hi and Bye, but those are few and far between
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You can crawl
-You can wave
-You can clap
-We moved your crib to the lowest setting since you stand up in it all the time
-You did your first sign language sign which was milk. I am pretty sure you clap for the more sign.
-You got your 2 top teeth in
New Friends I've made: No new friends, just showing you off at the Christmas party to all of Mommy and Daddy's friends.
Places you went/Adventures: You celebrated your first Christmas! It was fantastic! You also went to a live Nativity, walked in the Festival of Lights 5k, You went to Dean's 1st birthday party, and went to our Annual Christmas party to name a few adventures. Aunt Brandi & Uncle Tony came in town as well as Aunt Elizabeth.
Clothes: You are still in 9m for sleepers but not for too much longer. These are your current sizes: Gymboree-6, Target- 12 months (The shirts are short), Carter-6, Old Navy/Gap- 6-12
You are in a size 3 diaper.
