8 months

Calvin, how are you 8 months old?! Holy smokes time is flying by….

Weight 15.2 lbs

Clothes: Calvin is wearing 6 month clothes with a few 6-9 month shirts thrown into the mix. He is still sporting his size 2 diapers in the awesome patterns of rockstar guitars, bananas and baseballs. :) I love the Honest Company patterns!

Eating: Calvin really loves food, he doesn't always eat a lot of but I have yet to find a food that he doesn't like. It is always a messy production during eating times too because he is very anti-bib. Try and put a bib on this kid and it is instantly in his mouth, covering his entire face. He is eating: breast milk, oatmeal, bananas, mango, pear, prunes, applesauce, carrots, avocado, peas, butternut squash, green beans and sweet potato. We tried a small piece of a puff once that didn't go over so well so we are sticking to purees for now. He usually eats 2 "meals" a day

Sleep: He takes 3 naps a day, sometimes only 2 if they are long or he sleeps in late, He has been taking a solid 1 1/2- 2 hour morning nap and his wake time is 2 -2 1/2 hours. Cal goes to sleep around 8 and usually is up for the day around 7 or 8. He wakes up 1- 2 times per night to eat usually in the early morning. He is now sleeping in his new wearable blanket.

Playtime and Activities: Poor guy spent a big chunk of this month being sick with bronchiolitis and ear infections so we spent a lot of the month at home trying to get better. (Christian was also sick with a different virus!) With the warm weather, we try to get out as much as possible to the park or just play in the pool in our backyard. Calvin went on a swing for the first time and loved it! He was almost lulled to sleep! :) He loves to play in the exersaucer and jumper and exploring while he rolls around on his tummy.

Development: Calvs has got the roll to move down! He does not stay in one place for very long and rolls to get to toys, people, etc. He will also turn in a circle while on his tummy. We are still working on sitting as he just doesn't get the hang of that yet so we practice everyday. No teeth yet but I keep expecting to see them any day.
