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