8 months

John is 8 months old today. At this time he:

weighs 17 lbs

is 28+ inches long

wears 9-12 month clothing

reaches for Mommy when he sees me

takes two naps a day

has two teeth

detests baby food and prefers to feed himself

is too easily distracted to nurse

has been on formula for less than 24 hours but is taking it well

is therefore my most compliant child!

He also:

started crawling forwards!

Oh look, Captain Distracto found some fringe to play with!

tries really hard to sit himself up!

had his first fever :(

sleeps with his mouth open

has curls (sort of)

can pull up in his crib.

Is such a happy baby!

Oh he is so cute! I am so glad I got to see him and hold him a little this week! I love his outfit too! Where is that from?

Happy 8 months, JT.

Sorry the mommy buffet ended. What is it with kids these days deciding at 8 months that they are no longer interested in the mommy buffet?
