8 Months

Baby Jack is 8 months old!

This month, we didn't get many good pictures--Jack wants to move around too much!

Jack weighs a little over 20 lbs (my guess is 21, but we won't know until we go to the doctor next month for his 9 month check-up).  He is wearing 9 to 12 month clothes (smaller in his smocked outfits).  He wears size 3 diapers.

Jack usually sleeps from 7:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. (although this month he has been going through a growth spurt, so we've had a few middle of the night feedings!).  He eats 4 times a day, about 7 oz each time.  He eats solids three times a day.

This month we tried our first finger foods--yogurt puffs.  Jack thinks they are a fun toy, but he's not so great at eating them.

Jack still just has his bottom two signs of the tops ones, yet!

(Jack started to crawl over the edge of the chair...uh oh...!)

Jack loves to wave at people, but he has definitely started to get stranger anxiety.  Plus, he can be pretty clingy with me.  But he still loves his daycare ladies, so I am happy about that!

Jack is so much more mobile this month!  He can move himself around the floor, but he isn't quite crawling.  We are getting really close though.  He will lean over into the crawling position, but he's not sure about moving forward. Jack also loves to pull himself up on things

Likes:  Cuddling, anything that makes noise or he can chew on, sleeping, eating, baths, music, waving

Dislikes: getting out of the bath, getting his diaper changed

And finally, for comparison...
