Scout // 8 Months

For the last 7 months, I was actually able to do a post the day Scout had his monthly birthday until  this month...I am 4 days late. I will give myself credit for making it that long.

I think this month had the biggest amount of milestones. He is officially mobile and loving every minute! His brother, not so much! I actually saw Sawyer pulling Scout by the leg the other day prying him off one of his toys.

Here is Sawyer at 8 months. Big differences are that Sawyer had teeth, was attempting to walk, and was saying Mama. Also Scout has now past Sawyer in size, Sawyer was only wearing 6-9 month still:  Sawyer 8 Months

Scout 8 Month stats

weight: 18 lbs 6 oz.  at 7 months he was 17 lbs 8 oz.

height:  27.5 at 7 months he was 27 inches

clothing: 9-12 months. And just 12 month tops. Wears size 2 and 3 shoes.

diapers: Size 3 - same as last month

eating: He is eating a lot more table food and baby foods. he has even tried cut up avocado and bananas, pancakes, animal  crackers, vanilla wafers, and ritz crackers. He is on the same schedule as last month but eating a lot more food and not waking up to nurse in the night.

sleeping: He is doing great at night (knock on wood). He nurses about 7 p.m., and I wake him up to nurse about 6 a.m. The past 2 weeks, he hasn't woken up once in the middle of the night to eat, maybe only a couple times briefly waking up and then falling back to sleep once we give him his pacifier. I really hope it isn't a phase.

teething: Still nothing but has learned to chew food anyway. It still appears something is trying to pop out because of the way he chews and drools.

other updates: He is officially crawling and pulling up on things. He first crawled a week after his 7 month birthday and then about 1 week later he crawled up the stairs at our house, and then a week after that he was pulling up and standing in his crib and all over our house. His school even sent me a video (below) of him completely crawling up the stairs to the slide at school. He proceeding to try to go down the slide too. This boy needs to slow down. Other developments include moving his hands to do the actions with Itsy Bitsy Spider, still only saying Dada and Hi, waving and clapping. He also is trying to do the sign language for "more" when we eat. He also has officially sat at the "big kid" table at school, I am so proud.

Here are a few more photos/video from the month:
