Eric is 8 months old!

So we are total slackers and didn't remember to take a photo for Eric's 8th month until he was already 9 months old.  Luckily, I have tons of photos from my phone and the camera during his 8th month.  Hopefully, we stop slacking off and pay attention.  This little man keeps us on our toes all the time!
oops, our bad!

{weight}: 21 lbs. 7 oz.

{length}: somewhere around 29 inches

{head circumference}: somewhere around 45 cm

Some milestones during his 8th month:

{new words}: This kid talks up a storm (baby gibberish of course), but lots of words.  He is so cute because sometimes he is definitely having a full-on conversation with one of the dogs or his toys.

{walking with help}: He is able to walk with a walking toy.  He loves it and is so proud of himself when he does it.

{more new foods}: Since his front 8 teeth (8, I know!) are all in, he can chew on tons of stuff (including my phone and remotes).  He has tried a lot of new stuff and likes fresh fruit and veggies along with his mum-mums and puffs.  His pincer grasp has gotten a lot better too!

{big kid}: He still fits in a few 9 months outfits, but he has graduated to 12 months clothes.  Mama's excited for summer clothes and (hopefully) less laundry.  Eric loves being a diaper baby and that's fine by me!

{sleep}:  He has decided that he doesn't like sleeping through the night lately.  Almost every night, he wakes up for a feeding around 3 or 4 but then goes right back to sleep til about 7 or 7:30.  No biggie...Daddy usually gets up to feed him (Thank you, Daddy!) and I wake up with him at 7 while I get ready for work.  It's our special bonding time! :)  Every now and then, he'll sleep through if he's had a busy day.

{making friends}: He is doing so well at the baby-sitter's.  There are some older boys (3 and 4) and two younger ones (1 and 1 1/2 years old) and he is making friends so well.  He wants to be just like them and it is so cute to watch him interact with them.  They love him and he loves them back!  I'm so glad he has such a happy place to go to while I'm at work.  But I can't wait to spend the summer with him!!!

Well, expect the 9 months post real soon!  I super PROMISE we won't slack this time!
