Jamison at 8 months

Jamison, you’re quite the little monker right now.  You’re a huge piglet!  We cannot eat or drink in front of you without you screaming your unhappiness that you’re not shoving food into your mouth also.  I still nurse you first thing in the morning and before your morning nap and afternoon nap and then before or after dinner and before bed.  So 4-6 times a day usually, with 1-2 bottles of formula also.  And for meals you are eating a lot of what we are.  So far you’ve had all the puffs and yogurt melts for babies, Cheerios, cheese, peas, green beans, noodles, Mac n Cheese, chicken, mashed potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, baby yogurt and lots of different breads.  You will pretty much eat anything we put in front of you and so far you haven’t really disliked anything, except for plain pureed meats.

You’re mostly sleeping well too now.  You still nap about an hour or two in the morning and 1-3 hrs in the afternoon and you go to bed around 7:30/8pm and you get up between 7-8am.  Lately in the mornings you just hang out in your crib and talk to yourself until I wake up and come get you.  I’ve started putting wubbanubs in your crib with you and you play with them sometimes.

You are pretty fascinated with dogs and always get excited when you see them when we’re out and about.  You like to watch our dogs too.  Birds flying around catch your attention too along with cars driving by.  You will sit on the rug for a good 20-30 mins and play by yourself or watch the big kids run around.  Some of the funniest things get you really belly laughing, which makes us all laugh.
We switched you to size 9-12 months just after you turned 7 months and when I had you with me at Ben’s 4 year appointment you weighed over 20.5 lbs.  I’m not sure what you weigh now but I would guess around 21-22lbs.  You are our little porker.  You’re still in size 3 diapers and wear size 3 shoes.  This month we also switched you in to the convertible car seat this month because we felt you are safer in it and you’re getting too heavy to haul around in the infant carrier.  You still just have your two bottom toophers.

You do a lot of babbling now too, and you say “dada” all the time, although I’m not 100% sure it’s in correlation to daddy being near or not yet.  Lots of ah-ah’s and ah-da’s and ba-ba’s.  No ma-ma’s yet enough though I try to get you to say it all the time.  You can sit up great now and roll around, but you’re not even close to crawling yet or pulling up on anything, but Ben and Abbie didn’t this early either.

In general, you’re a pretty happy baby and if you’re not, there’s a reason.  You’re at one of my favorite ages and I go between wanting you to meet more milestones and wanting you to stay like this forever.  You’re so much fun!
