Our Little Munchkin is 8 months old

My Easton,

You are now 8 months old. These past 8 months have been a blessing to to your Mama and Dada. Your happiness is our life and you make each of our days worth living to the fullest. You could basically say we are obsessed with you, before bed each night we come check on you to see what cute sleep position you have moved into, lately you always seem to be on your stomach with your cute tush in the air. You are always happy when eating, especially when feeding yourself cheerios, puffs or peas. Sippy cups keep you busy for at least 15 minutes. Each day you spend time in your walker outside while watching the plants and grass be watered, you think it is absolutely hysterical when Bruce or Harley walk by you and run around the yard. Bath time or shall I say splash time is your favorite part of your nightly routine. Apparently you miss us during the night because your still waking at all hours, we have been told and told again that we need to let you cry...but don't quite have the heart to do so. The love that we have built over these last 8 months is unimaginable and I keep thinking I want time to slow down or for you to stay little, but then at the end of each month I love you even more!

Love Mama

You now eat 3 meals a day and love feeding yourself. You eat oatmeal, pancakes, fruits, veggies. We finally started taking you out to eat again. You love to sit in a restaurant and people watch...even though you are not very discrete when doing so. You are still nursing at least 5-6 times a day and have bottles while mama is at work.

Sleep is our most challenging part with you. You normally go to sleep at about 730 and will sleep almost 12 hours...with waking sporadically throughout the night! I hope we are making progress in this arena, but don't want to get too excited. You take about 2 naps a day!

You are on the move. You can stand when holding onto something. You can go from sitting to stomach and back and forth. You can crawl and but you think army crawling is faster. You hang out in your walker when your at home but if your at Grammas and Grampas you walk all over the place (apparently the baby Einstein walker is better than the one we have).
