Eight Months Old

Guess who turned eight months old today?

Bobby is lunging into a crawling position, but has not quite taken the leap yet.

Bobby turned Eight months old on December 30, 2009.

Weight: 19.2 lbs.

Sleeping Patterns: Bobby has always been a pretty good sleeper, but now, he's just about perfect! He usually sleeps about 11 hours per night. He still goes to bed around 7pm. We are still on the same nap schedule (9am, 1pm), and it seems to be working out great. We tweak the times every now and then, but for the most part, we are pretty consistent. He usually has one longer nap (1 hr. 30 min.) and a shorter nap (30-45 min.). Occasionally, he'll wake up during the wee morning still, but will always talk himself back to sleep. Of course, it still wakes us up on the monitor!

Eating Habits: We are still doing 4 bottles a day, with three meals. He is eating Stage 2 jars now, and will usually have 1 - 1.5 jars per meal. He is a very good eater though, and enjoys pretty much anything I give him. I have tried to introduce some finger foods, but he is not interested yet. We may wait until he's 9 months for that. I've also decided that I'm waiting until he is 9 months to reintroduce the sippy cup to him. He can feed himself his bottle, but usually has to be leaning back. He hasn't quite figured out to tilt the bottle yet.

New discoveries & Accomplishments: Bobby, as seen in the above picture, will most likely start crawling soon. He's lunging forward a lot. He also has been up on all fours, and rocking, but has not actually crawled. He also said his first word on Christmas Eve. And, guess what?!? It was MOMMA! It is so cute to hear him say it. At first we weren't sure if it was the word, or a new sound. But, yesterday, he said it to me as I left the room. And, he was calling for me when he woke up from his nap. Bobby is really into checking out his surroundings. He loves to just listen to people talk. He plays great independently too. He is starting to notice when I leave the room though. It is getting harder for me to get stuff done around the house.

Places you love: Again, Bobby is still very much into his Exersaucers. We have two jumping toys - a Graco "Johnny Jumper" and a Jumparoo. He LOVES the Johnny Jumper, and is just so-so with the Jumparoo. We haven't taken too many walks lately, because of the weather. But, he loves to go on errands with me, and just absorbs everything in like a sponge. He smiles at strangers and gets tons of compliments all the time. People are always making comments on his pretty, blue eyes.

Special Friends: Bobby had a blast playing with all of his cousins over Christmas. He's also had some fun playtime with his BFF Drew Wilder.

Current Events: Attempted terrorist attack on plane on Christmas Day, BCS Bowls are in full-swing, Obama Care is still trying to get passed, Charlie Sheen arrested, Tiger is a Cheetah, and 2010 is just around the corner!

What We did This Day: Had a playdate with Drew and Cole. Pictures coming soon!

But, beforehand, take a look at these!
