Eight months sounds so grown up! Little Juderbug is definitely in a new stage of babyhood. He is increasingly mobile, independent and social. He babbles all day long, scoots and attempts to crawl all over the place, is curious about everything and is starting to want to do things by himself.
Clothes Size: Starting to grow out of 6-9 months. Wears mostly 6-12 and 9-12 month. His snow suit is 12-18 months and his snow boots are 12-18 months. Any new clothes I buy in 12-18 months because he is growing so quickly!
Height and Weight: Not sure about height but weight is approximately 20 pounds. Growing like a weed!
Health: Perfect health!
Sleep: He has gotten so good at falling asleep on his own for naps and bedtime! I think the sound machine helps. He usually takes three naps a day, typically from 9-10:30 ish, 12:30-2 ish, and 4-5 ish. He goes to bed at 7, usually waking once or twice in the night and sleeping until around 7:30 in the morning. He used to wake up at 6:30 and all of sudden started sleeping in later and we are loving it! He slept through the night the other night for the first time (there have been a few other times where he is slept through the night but then woken up extra early, like 5:30 early so I'm not sure if those count) so here's to hoping that becomes a habit!
Diet: Nurses about 5-6 times a day. Eats three meals a day: purees: bananas, applesauce, spinach, peas, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, baby oatmeal. Thanksgiving: tried mashed potatoes and turkey! Finger foods: yogurt melts, fruit melts, puffs, teething biscuits. And we are starting to give him little bits of table foods, like pasta!
