c's 8th month

C is 8 months old! He is now 8.7 kgs and 72 cm tall.  Looking at C it appears as though he has lost some of his baby fat this month, although he does still have a cute little belly.  He is still eating like a champ though so don't be worried.  He is just looking a whole lot leaner these days for some reason.  

This month has really been a big month for C developmentally.  It feels as though he has learned to do so much in such a short amount of time.  It is crazy! He is able to crawl commando style very quickly and can now also crawl on his knees.  C can sit up on his own now, which has been awesome.  He can also stand up by himself with the support of whatever piece of furniture is nearby.  This includes being able to stand up in his crib, which has not been that great as he still hasn't worked out that he can sit back down by himself.  Besides from these changes, C also has 6 teeth now.  He is way more vocal and will babble lots with us.  I think my favorite is when he sings, which is pretty cute and slightly off key! HA!

I think all of these changes have affected C's sleep in a bad way.  This month has been a hard month with all of the lack of sleep as C has regressed a lot.  He has been having a hard time sleeping through the night and often wakes up multiple times a night.  C has also been waking up really early this month making us even more tired especially now that work has started back up for both Matt and I.  Hopefully it is all just a phase and will pass soon as we would LOVE to have a solid stretch of sleep again.

Highlights for this month include: spending our last week together at home, cutting even more teeth, crawling on his knees, standing up in his crib, and having a yellow nose due to the foods he is eating!

Happy 8 months C!

So sweet...


It is so hard to get him to lay on his back now for these monthly shots.

Check out those teeth!

Trying to get C to look at the camera is HARD work!

I love you THIS much mom! :) 

Look at these do you say no to him?!?

So serious.

I love you C!
