Wyatt: 8 Months

Wyatt turned eight months last Saturday! As time goes by, the months go by faster and faster. I can’t believe we have an eight month old. 

It’s been a busy month of growth for our loving little boy. He is now army crawling everywhere, has two teeth, is very curious, and loves to pick up everything in reach.

Likes: The boy is on the move! He likes to crawl and explore everywhere. He army crawls very well and does it until he turns all red and works up a sweat. Examining everything in his reach. Eating! and Books.

Dislikes: Sleeping in his crib. Getting dressed. 

Clothing and Diapers: Mix of 3-6 month and 6-12  and size 3 diapers. 

Sleep: He is getting better at taking scheduled naps, about three a day. They range from 15 minutes to a hour. At night he’s getting better too. He wakes up about once or twice a night, but still will only sleep in his rock n play!! We are doomed when he grows out of it…

Feeding: Breastfed every three hours and eats two – three solids a day. Usually a fruit or veggie puree that I mix up in the morning and oatmeal at night. He likes everything.

Milestones: Army crawling everywhere. Rolling at lightning speed. Grabbing at everything. Two teeth. Taking better naps. “Talking” much more, he’s a pro at saying “dadadadadada” .

Favorite Things: Board books, Mickey Mouse, Hot Dog song, singing, listening to music, crawling around, balls, his stacking rings, his wooden school bus toy, and dogs.

What I want to remember:

How happy he gets when we get into the pool. 

The way he kicks and flails about when he hears the Hot Dog Song 

How happy he gets when mommy or daddy come home.

The way he picks and pulls at the grass.

The way he smashes and nuzzles his face up into my shoulder. I think of it as his way of kissing me.
