8 Months

Age: 8 Months
Weight: 16lbs 12oz
Eating: Nursing full-time on weekends and evenings!!! He also loves his solid foods. He will pretty much eat anything you give him.
Talking: He is still saying Mama and has added Baba. Sometimes I think he says "Hi"
Favorite Toy: Right now it his piano. I found the fisherprice piano at a consignment sale and Ant LOVES it. If I need a few moments to get something done I will sit him in front of it and he is happy for about 10-15mins before he moves onto another toy.
Sleep: GREAT! He has made real improvement this last month. Last month he wasn't napping well on weekends but now he will sometimes nap in his crib.
Milestones: Ant is on the move! He is army crawling everywhere. He started doing this at the beginning of the month and he is a master now. Every once in awhile he will get up on his hands and knees but no full out crawling yet.
Life has been very busy this month, as I said in an earlier blog DH has been out of town. It was a huge adjustment but we have survived. We are in the final week and look forward to DH returning.
People always tell you how fast time passes once you have children but I never knew how quickly it passes. It seems like just yesterday Ant was inside of my belly kicking me but at the same time it feels like a lifetime ago.
This past month has been such an exciting one. Ant started army crawling, which made it necessary to put up baby gates. The only downside is my cats won't jump the gates...I thought cats were suppose to be able to jump them. I think mine are just lazy.
We also took a trip to the pumpkin patch this weekend. I had never been and I am now wishing we had done this sooner. Ant and I had a blast. There was so much to do and many of the act ivies were free. I got some great pics of Ant and a pumpkin. I didn't want to bombard you with to many pictures so here are just a few.


  1. I'm sure the cats *can* jump the gates, they're probably just too proud to do so ;) Cats are funny like that!

    Go Ant!

  2. So cute! My little girl ant is the same age! Such a wonderful time and time seems to fly! Enjoy!
