8 Months!

G was not interested in taking any pics
with his foot out of his mouth

I know I say this every single month, but this month flew by faster than any other. I’m still mourning that Grayson is no longer 6 months old, and poof! he’s now 8 months! This month was fast, but GOOD! Grayson packed in a lot of development and new skills into 4 short weeks.

New stuff:

  • TEETH! 2 sweet little pearly whites have poked through on his bottom gums. We had a weekend of low grade fever and fussiness, but other than that, it hasn’t been bad at all.
  • Grabbing! Yay!
  • Grayson is now noticing and is somewhat interested in the dogs. He even giggled at grabbed at Izzy the other day!
  • New sound- ga ga ga- it’s so cute and funny and I know he’s trying to say something very important when he makes it.
  • THIS funny little position (hee hee)
This can’t be that comfortable

Clothes: 6 month and 6-9 month. I love cute summer rompers and floppy hats! And yes, sometimes Grayson’s clothes make him look 8 months going on 80.

My sweet little old man

Diapers: Size 2 in Pampers, but we are now doing cloth diapers during the day!

Love that fluffy tooshie!

Food: Hit or miss. Some days, G is all about his sweet potatoes, applesauce and peas. Other days, not so much. I’m trying not to stress, but I’m worried. He’s still taking about 4 ounces of formula every three to four hours.

Prunes? My mom not only dresses me like I’m 80, she feeds me like I am too!

2/3 of a year down! Seriously, this little dude just gets cuter and cuter every day and even with all the not-so-fun stuff, he makes every day and absolute joy. I am so honored and blessed to be his mommy. I mean, who wouldn’t want to start the day like THIS:

Happy 8 Months Grayson Robert!

    Love the fluffy butt! The little man has had a busy month, and they just keep flying by. Our boys are growing up SO FAST. Your monthly update always gets my heart – one, because I love Lil' G so much; and two, because I know I'll be writing mine in a few days. Next thing you know, we'll be planning birthday parties! ūüôĀ

    oh my, that goodmorning video is SOOOO CUTE! and p.s. putting a foot in mouth is apparently an important developmental thing because it was on the 9 month survey at our well visit. i had to answer "no"; grayson better give blaine some lessons on that! happy 8 months!
