8 Months

8 months

Wait. 8 months!? I guess! This last month has seemed to be a big one in lots of things happening!

What we have learned…crawling rocks!  Chasing Boaz’s tail is the best thing and eating food is fun too.  Though, kiwis do not make for fun diapers…

What we are enjoying right now…eating food, crawling around, making lots of noises, chasing Boaz, music, Asher loves being sung to, & sleeping longer!  He’s got all sorts of personality and is such a happy baby.  He loves mornings and exploring!

What our biggest struggles are…getting to sleep without us…little man loves mom and dad.

Asher’s most exciting milestones…crawling! And hello more teeth.  Two on the bottom and seems like two on the top are just through or just about through too.  He also loves to “walk” while holding our hands. Oh and we retired the kick n play but kept the piano part separate and out.

What we are looking forward to…spring…please come quickly…

Asher’s likes and dislikes…still loving jumping, songs, being held, Boaz, funny noises, when we raise our eyebrows at him, being tickled, standing, and chewing (especially chewing on straws or pens).  Also loving crawling, crunching paper, picking things up, the drum set, trying to crawl on the treadmill, and chewing on tags.  He dislikes getting to sleep, when straws or pens or things he wants are taken away from him, when he gets stuck, and when he notices us but we aren’t paying attention to him.  He’s got a pretty good “blah blah blah” angry noise when he doesn’t like something too now.

What sleep looks like…getting longer sleeping stretches! Who knows why but bedtime has been pushed back a bit lately and it’s been more like 8:30-9:30 by the time he actually falls asleep but then he’s sleeping more like 5-6 hour chunk…here’s to dropping night feedings soon!

What we are eating…Asher keeps eating more new foods and we are trying to keep up on buying things he can eat!  We got to go to Bello Cucina for Valentine’s Day and got a vanilla milkshake from Cafe 116.  We discovered we love Papa Murphy’s pan pizzas.  We ate queso from Qdoba.  We snuck in a Starbucks treat.

Who we have seen…we got to see grandma and grandpa when they got back from their trip!  We did get to have dinner with great grandma and grandpa—Asher showed off his crawling and eating for them too!

At the last doctor’s appointment…we had his “6 month” appointment this month and found out that he’s 18 lb. 12 oz. and 28 1/4 inches long!  Still our tall and skinny kid according to the doctor.  He’s also definitely into 12 month clothing.  Rocking the size 4 overnight diapers but mostly doing cloth still!IMG_2181IMG_2195
