8 Months

This has been a big month for my sweet little Trey-bug! Between crawling and talking more he is always "on the go"! It's been so much fun to see this little sponge soak up learning and different daily activities.

He's starting to remember Little Gym and starts laughing and kicking when we walk in the door. He is also really starting to show us how awesome story time is by getting excited about books and being able to turn the pages for us. One of the first things he crawled to was a book and basically gave me a look like "are you going to read this to me or what?". It cracked me up!

Sadly this month also had his first fall and a second bout of teething. But we got through the fall ok and fingers crossed the teething pain subsides sooner rather than later.

I can't believe how much he is turning into a little person with such a huge personality. He is really showing us his likes and dislikes and all around just having fun. I feel like this is such a wonderful age and so (dare I say it?) easy at times.

Trey's 8 Month Stats

Bedtime: between 8pm and 9pm

Wake-Up: anytime between 8am and 9am

Naps: Around 2 per day. Usually one at 10am and hopefully another between 2 and 4pm. All of these are in his crib as he has decided he hates to nap anywhere else. He will fall asleep in the car on occasion but has been waking up when we get to our destination.

Bottles: Trey has four 7-8 oz bottles each day, one when he wakes up - two in the middle and one right before bed

Foods: He is now having food and a sippy 3 times a day. He loves Bananas, Sweet Potatoes, Apples, Pears, Carrots, Pumpkin, Spinach, Peas, Apricots, Peaches, Winter Squash, Blueberries

Developmental Milestones & Firsts: CRAWLING!! Pulling himself up on people, toys, furniture and his crib. Turning the pages in his books when we say "page" or "turn the page". Licking his lips and giving "five". Holding his own bottle consistently, I can't remember the last time I held one for him (sad face). Top right tooth starting to break through and it looks as though the left one is also on it's way. Talking more, saying "ma, ma, ma, ma" lots & lots (still working on Da-da). Yes, it's been a big month around here!

Favorite Toys: Sophie (she will be on this list forever), regular bouncy balls (to pass with our hands and play "soccer", The Twilight Turtle, Skwish ball, Scout, Walk and Ride

Favorite Songs: The Itsy Bitsy Spider, The Little Gym Song - Bugs, B-I-N-G-O (we have our own version about a "T-R-E-Y-bug", Grand Ole Duke of York, Tony Chestnut

Mommy Books: What to Expect the First Year by Arlene Eisenberg, And lately I have been reading a lot of Magazines (Parents, Parenting: The Early Years)

So cute! I can't believe how different your 8 month post is than ours! Just goes to show how every baby truly develops at their own pace! Also makes it hard for moms not to compare, seems like all the other late July/early Aug babes are crawling. Oh well. That much more time I don't have to worry about baby gates!

He is now pulling up to?! He has to be keeping you crazy busy following him around everywhere. How fun! He is way ahead of C but I dont mind because that means I can cuddle with him that much longer. But soon enough and he will be a little mover and shaker like Trey.

I can't get over how big he is!!!! I love that he likes books. BG would have zero to do with them at that age. She's just getting to where she'll look at them.
