8 months!

Christian James you are 2/3 of a year old!
*** on this 95 degree day, we decided that we needed to take pictures in your diaper :)

8 Month Stats
Weight:  16.7 lbs - 10th percentile

Clothes: C has not grown much this month so he is still in 3-6 month and 6 month clothes. It has been so hot that most of the time he is just in a onesie anyway! This month he also got to wear a swimsuit for the first time! He is still in size 2 diapers.

Our days are spent rolling, SITTING, playing with water, hanging in the exersaucer, swinging and reading lots of books. The teacher in me loves that this little guy will sit and read books with me. :) He still loves to song songs, be tickled and play with Phent and his ball.

Christian has been saying "dadada" and "mamama" over and over so Kerry and I are both training him to say our "name" first! He loves to suck in  and smack his lips. Christian is rolling around like there is no tomorrow and is making his first attempts to crawl by scooting his legs in. (I immediately ran out the next day to buy a baby gate after he did this!) BIG NEWS: C can sit all on his own! He went from 5 seconds of wobbling to full on sitting for 30 minutes straight this month. Cutest development is giving kisses and waving goodbye. He is still on Prevacid but we are going to try and wean him down to 1 dosage a day. 
Eating: breast milk, avocado, rice cereal, banana, sweet potato, carrots, applesauce, pears

Wake up- 7:00ish (I don't like that this is earlier!)
2 naps- 9:30ish and 1:30ish
Bed- 7ish with one waking around 3 or 4
Still using the wedge and swaddle!
