Eight Months

Dear Parker,
you are EIGHT months old!!!
You are wearing mostly size 6-9 months.
You wear a size 3 diaper.
This month has been full of milestones!!!  It has been fun! You are ON THE GO!!!  You are crawling everywhere - you chase after Sully's bones all day and love his water bowl!  I can't just leave you in the room by yourself anymore without quickly coming back to check on you.  You move so fast and have cute little carpet burns on your knees...ouchy.

You want to be down now when we hold you so church is becoming more of a challenge.  You love to stand and bounce all the time too.  So anything you can hold on to by yourself like the couch, our foot stool, a just love to pull yourself up and stand and see the world.

You take two good naps, sometimes three, a day.  One in the morning still for about an hour and one in the afternoon for about 1.5 to 2 hours.  Lately you have been taking a snoozer nap around 5 or 6-ish, which is a hard time to get your dinner in.

You are still getting up at night.  Most of the time you will quickly fall back asleep and I only have to get you around 3 or 4 am.  However, that is not always the case :)

Some people say you look exactly like your Mommy and some say you look exactly like your Daddy.  Your personality is always cheery, full of smiles, and you still never get too fussy ever. You have the sweetest little spirit and I love when you smile really big, your eyes sparkle, and you show off your dimples!

You have two teeth - the ones on the bottom.  No associated words yet...only babbling :) Although you do make the sounds for momma and dadda.

You are still pretty easy to take places.  You are really good when we are out and about as long as you are feed and not sleepy!

You are a fairly good eater! You eat two to three meals a day of baby food and you LOVE puffs.  Your favorite is still sweet potatoes...we now like yogurt and love carrots too.  We are still working on the greens...must have got that from your Daddy.  You seem to have pretty good fine motor skills - you are very good at feeding yourself puffs!

I love you SO much! You are my sweet baby boy! We all love you and are so thankful for you!
Love, Mommy
