You had a HUGE growth spurt this month, initiating a couple of changes such as you are now in a convertible carseat since you are already 30 inches long and you were able to fit into size nine month clothing for a whole...three weeks. So we've skipped twelve month clothing and just gone straight to size 18 month because I find it pointless to buy you all twelve month clothing in case you do the same thing. Along with this huge growth spurt and changes of clothing sizes also meant that you diapers got quite a bit tighter as well. While you are not close to the weight restriction for size 3 diapers (28 lbs I think?) they are just getting to short and narrow for you, so onto size 4!
You finally broke your first tooth on August 11th, two days before your turned eight months. And you broke your second one three days later so we officially are no longer gumming everything! But unfortunately with your second tooth you have started teething and wanting to be cuddled and held most of the day. But I don't mind. I love how you have started to lift your arms up when you want to be picked up and the way you wrap your arms around my neck and squeeze tight just makes my heart melt. My favorite is your slobbery kisses on the side of my face when you say hello.
You are still eating pureed baby food, but we are starting to introduce more and more true solids to you. So far you've had pancakes, graham crackers, strawberries, grapes, peach slices, pear slices, a couple fries (naughty daddy), and a bite of bacon (naughty mommy). You definitely are all about textures just like mommy, if its slimy or super rubbery/chewy you are not a huge fan. It's fun to see you experience things for the first time and decide if you like them right away or not.
Thank heavens you are still sleeping through the night, and you still take nightly bathes which is definitely fun to see you play in the
We love you so much little man, you are truly the most special part of our family and I can't imagine our family without you now, it's like you were always a missing piece.
Daddy: is loving your sweet blue eyes and how you laugh at farting sounds
Mommy: is loving giving you raspberries so that you will giggle
Puppies: are loving cleaning up your high chair for you once you're done eating
