8 Months

I am learning that the older I get, the faster time goes. I can't believe you are 8 months old already. Where is the time going? When you woke up screaming last night, I got you out of your crib and rocked you. As I did, I noticed how big you are getting and it made me cry. I love your personality and how much fun you are. You are growing and changing every day but it also makes me so sad to see just how fast time is going. I love you so much and you bring so much happiness into our world.

You have been sleeping through the night for two weeks now. The past two nights you have woken up at 9 screaming, but I am not sure why. I think the first night was your teeth and last night you got both legs stuck into one pajama leg. You now LOVE a certain binky which is good and bad. The mustache one you loved got eaten by Mickey. Thankfully you have some others you will use. You refuse the 6 month and older ones, only the 0-6 month ones. I know I should not be giving them to you but they make you happy and I think they help your teeth. I give them to you at nap time but not at bed time. The past two nights I have given it to you when you woke up screaming. It comforts you so I am ok with it.

You have started rejecting your third nap which is really hard because you usually get up around 2 from your second nap. 5 hours is a very long time for you to go without sleeping before bedtime. When 6pm rolls around you lose your mind, you want your food and your crib. The past three days you have taken a nap at 9 and 1 so I am wondering if this will be your pattern. We will see.

Your brothers are so in love with you. They fight over who you are paying attention to. On St. Patricks Day, Camden woke up, kissed you good morning and then said, "I am so lucky to have you." It was very sweet. I hope they always love you this much but I know there will be many fights. I just hope you are all close like I am with my siblings. You get so excited to see them, as well as other people you know. You love Nana, and you are getting used to Papa. You get so excited when Daddy gets home and you love seeing me when I get you up in the morning. It is very cute. You make us laugh all the time!

Yesterday I told you that Elmo was on your diaper. You laughed and laughed. I said Elmo again, and you laughed even more. It was hilarious! For some reason this is not letting me upload the video. You are so much fun! I think you finally have the hang of sitting up on your own. You dont last long but you are doing it. You REALLY want to crawl and so far this is how far you have got:

You keep rolling all over the floor and you are really trying to get places! It looks like you are skydiving :)

Today was the first bottle I switched you back to Allimentum. I really hope you do well on it! It smells HORRID but you drink it so I guess it is ok.  You were SO good yesterday. You took two 1 hour naps, and you went to the store with me without screaming or making a peep. I enjoyed my time with you. 

You will be up from your nap soon so I will sign off for now.
