Graham || 8 months

Dear Graham,

8 months already.  And you are one smiley, drooly, happy, chunky little boy. 

You got your first tooth this month.  One of your bottom middles ones just broke through a few days ago.  There was a day or two that your gums seemed to be bothering you some and you are constantly chewing on everything and drooling like crazy.

You weigh around 20 lbs now and are close to 28 inches long.  You are eating baby food three times a day.  Oatmeal or cereal in the morning and then either a fruit or veggie around lunch time and dinner time.  We've pretty much worked our way through most everything.  You definitely prefer fruits over veggies.  Although you are currently loving sweet potato's.  You aren't a fan of anything green right now but we're still working on that.  You are still nursing 4-5 times a day- about every 4 hours.  You take 2 bottles when you are at daycare ~ usually around 6-7 oz. each.

You go to bed around 7:30am and usually get up between 7am-8am.  And you are pretty much sleeping through the night.  We aren't on a great nap schedule but you tend to be pretty go with the flow.  When you get sleepy you start sucking your middle two fingers on your left hand and playing with your hair with your right hand.  It's pretty adorable.  I still rock you to sleep most of the time for your naps and at night.  Sometimes it would be nice to be able to lay you down awake and you put yourself to sleep...but I know the days of rocking you are numbered so I'm just enjoying it!

You are wearing size 3 diapers.  Mostly 9 month clothes but some 12 months already too.  Not sure about shoes since you mostly go barefoot. 

You are sitting up so good and love to sit in the floor and play with toys.  Mostly chew on them.  You also immediately flip over to your belly anytime we lay you down.  You jibber jabber a lot but are still only saying dada.  But you are a momma's boy right now which I love because I'm pretty crazy about you too! 

I love you more than you'll ever, ever know!

Mommy
