This boy. Man, he's got everyone wrapped around his little finger and we are all more than willing to be! He's the happiest baby I've ever known and just absolutely loves life. Some details about him at 8 months... He's got 7 teeth (nearly 8) and Brandt calls his top teeth "hippo" teeth because he's the first of our three kids to get their two front teeth last. He's not a great teether and has all the classic teething signs (our girls never did).
He still has 3 naps a day and sleeps 12 hours at night. He's really good at sitting up now (just graduated from the Bumbo to a booster high chair), loves sleeping on his tummy, can roll onto his tummy super quick but doesn't really ever flip back to his back. He isn't scooting or inching to things he wants and is perfectly content just sitting there, munching on a toy within reach. He is an amazing snuggler and beams when he sees anyone. He isn't too great at picking up food and putting it in his mouth yet but he's getting there. He loves puffs, rice cereal, apple sauce, bananas and even eats peas and green beans like a champ. My least favorite thing he does while eating... he's a teeth grinder! Between bites he grinds his hippo teeth and bottom teeth together, drives me crazy!
He isn't blowing raspberry's but has starts gurgling in the back of his throat for fun. When he starts jabbering it means he's ready for a nap and even though you don't think he'll go to sleep he just sticks his thumb in, flips over and to sleep he goes. He's pretty healthy and has really only been sick twice so far. We're about to start iron supplements and hopefully that'll give him more energy and help his anemia (which isn't full blown yet).
Blah. blah, blah... He's the perfect thing for this family at this time and we feel extremely blessed to have our little Bossy Boy in our lives. Boston, we love you SOOOOOOO much! Mwa!
