Anders, on June 28, 2012, you turned 8 months old!
(Yes, I wrote the wrong month...realized it a few weeks later, lol...too lazy to redo)
Not sure of your weight, but you are pretty chunky (well, chunky for you, lol).
You wear a size 3 diaper & can now wear a lot of 6 month clothes, but you can also still fit in some 3 month & newborn pjs.
You take 2 good naps each day, one at 9 & the other around 2 & they're 1 1/2-2 hours.
You are sleeping well at night, going to bed around 7-7:30 & sleeping no later than 7. Your night sleep has been affected by teething, but it's not too bad. You always put yourself right back to sleep. We don't like you being restless sometimes, but what we really don't like is you waking up earlier! You now seem to want to get up around 6...I let you hang out in your crib until 6:45. You'll talk to yourself & have a good 'ole time until I come in there. It's pretty cute.
We noticed your first tooth popping through on June 3. It was on bottom & the other popped through a few days later. You are adorable with your little teeth!
You are still nursing about 4 times a day. You are in Mother's Day Out on Tuesday & Thursday so you get a bottle before lunch on those days. I have to say, it's quite a struggle nursing you, sweet boy. You are so in tune to everything that's going on around you that you do not like to sit still to nurse very long. I've had to convince myself that you are very efficient now & you are growing as you should so you are getting enough.
You are eating a decent amount of baby food, too! You have loved everything you have tried, which is so wonderful. You really like feeding yourself more than getting pureed stuff, but I'll only give you bites of banana or cheese to satisfy your eating independence for now.
You started Mother's Day Out at church at the beginning of June & you love it. It will only last through July, but it's been a good start since you will be going this school year, too. You are a social butterfly & love being around other kids. You also love your teachers & we are so happy because they will be your teachers in when you start in the fall.
You can give a high five now! On June 12, your daddy was feeding you dinner & casually held up his hand & said "Give me a high five" & you did! We were so shocked & you have done it every time since then, even to David Scott, which he loved.
On June 16, you started crawling! Well, I guess I should say you started scooting quickly...You didn't start really crawling on hands & knees until a few days later. You were pretty hesitant for a little while, but as soon as it clicked, you have been non stop! You love this new independence!
On June 20, we noticed you start pulling up on the couch & it has turned into pulling up on any & everything.
Here are some photos from your eighth month:

This has been a month full of big things!! You are growing up before our eyes & continue to amaze us everyday. We love you sweet boy!
