Preston – 8 months

It’s October! and it’s Sunday. AND OUR LITTLE MAN IS 8 MONTHS!!

image

oh the changes!!

{{he has hair!! ^^^}}

It’s so hard for me to believe how big our little guy is getting. He’s 21 pounds {{same as last month!}} and 27 inches long.

So our little man is growing in length but thinning out. I miss his {{excessive}} chub already. I was just looking at a photo of him from a few months ago and he was SOO chubby. He’s slimmed down a lot. He actually fits into his bumbo again. Which is really nice, especially when we’re trying to cook.

Our boy just started crawling on the 15th. He did it on his own without help or prompting. He really had NO interest in crawling, or moving for that matter! Now that he’s been crawling for a few days, he’s really getting the hang of it. Β This was the one milestone i was NOT looking forward to!

…Now, to baby-proof!

IMG_9854

He loves standing and it really good at standing while holding on to something {{one handed}}.

IMG_0361

He can stand alone for a few seconds but that’s about it.

IMG_0119

He has been really interested in walking {{with help}}.

image

He loves walking around the whole house..especially when he gets to walk to his dog, Bentley. They are going to be the best of buds!!

{{caught bentley winking…lol πŸ˜‰ }}

He loves playing with ‘mirror baby’ and also kissing ‘mirror baby’!!

{{he just has too much fun with mirror baby…maybe he needs a sibling… πŸ˜‰ }}

image

Our boy is still eating like a champ. He loves his mama milk and his baby food!! He will down a few containers of baby food in one sitting if we don’t put a stop to it after awhile. He will eat anything! I sure hope this lasts…I’m praying he won’t be a picky eater…

Preston and I have been enjoying the PERFECT fall weather the last few days.

We took a trip to the park to swing and walk around. He still LOVES swinging. and people. and kids. and babies!!

We’ve also been taking long walks. He’s not as good on his walks as he used to be…unless he’s being carried in the Ergo. He loves being close to us.

Going to the Farmers market on saturday mornings has become a fun tradition for us!

IMG_9824

We are going to be so sad when it’s done for the season!

IMG_9822

On the 14th our little muffy said MAMA!!!! It was music to my ears. He’s been saying DADA for a while now…and to hear him say MAMA, was the best! Those are his first two words. I’ll take it! πŸ™‚

Our boy is such a silly little guy. He loves ‘talking’, making silly noises, and blowing bubbles.

IMG_9853

He still has 2 teeth but is cutting his third on the top {{the right center tooth}}. His hair is starting to get thicker and it’s also getting a lot darker. He’s starting to look more like a little boy every day. and i SWEAR he gets cuter by the minute..if that’s even possible! πŸ™‚ He still takes 2 naps a day…sometimes even 3 naps.

image

Last night he only had two naps and went to bed at 6:30pm and slept until 7:20 am. He must have been exhausted!!! He did wake up at 4am to eat though.

IMG_9945

{{after this ^^^ happened, we had to hang some shelves to put the monitor on–outside of his crib!}}

IMG_9915

We have been so good about taking him to pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and creameries.

IMG_0172

He was able to ‘help’ us pick berries.

IMG_0151

AND he even tried a few!

He also went on his first hayrack ride.

IMG_0136

{{of course one of us isn’t ready…}}

IMG_0137

He LOVES his bath time.

IMG_9768

He loves splashing around and playing with his rubber ducky and other fun bath toys.

IMG_0075

He still enjoys the nursery at the gym!

IMG_0063

We ventured out to a cute little shop in Jewell and bought him a globe!

IMG_0272

If you remember, last month we took a trip to Galveston to visit Preston’s aunties right after his 7 month birthday. We had a blast!! Let spam a few photos of our trip.
