Liam is 8 Months Old!

Eight Months! We are inching or rather speeding towards one year with our little man! Every month seems to pass a little quicker than the last!

He's still a peanut weighing in at 14 pounds 8 ounces. He is 25 and 3/4 inches long. He wears 6 month onesies so the snaps will button, but we still have trouble in the pants department! A few of his 3 month pairs fit best in the waist but are highwaters! Until this month, his stats have been similar to Londyn Grace's, but he is a bit behind what she was at his age now. Our pediatrician isn't worried since he is meeting all of his milestones and is a happy, healthy boy, but suggested with try some solids that have a higher fat content. This week he tried avocado. He seems to do better when Daddy feeds him than when I do! When I do it, he spits most of it out! He enjoys feeding himself using the mesh feeder. Honeydew is a new favorite thanks to Auntie! 

He's still nursing on demand which is about every 2.5 hours or sooner if he decides he needs a snack. Feeding on demand is what works best for my milk supply so that's what we do! When he is ready to eat. he just throws himself into nursing position! 

Each morning he takes a two hour nap in his swing and then at least one sometimes two more shorter naps in the afternoon/evening. At night, he still sleeping in Daddy and Mama's bed! He's such a sweet snuggle bug! 

People are always commenting on how happy and smiley he is and for the most part that is true! He's certainly happiest when he's in my arms though and I'm completely okay with that! 

Getting into his carseat is not one of his favorite things to do, but he's usually okay once the initial strapping in is complete! 

He does enjoy his jumperoo and absolutely loves splashing in the tub at bathtime!

We are still waiting on his first tooth to appear! He is constantly chewing on something! I'm forever taking things away that he's not supposed to have! 

Londyn Grace is still his favorite and he's always watching her. She was so excited to take him to the playground for the first time. He went on the swings and even went down the slide with her! I'm looking forward to watching them play together as he becomes more mobile.

He is such a joy to our family! We love you, Bubba Boy, and praise the Lord for eight months together!
