Eighth Month Update

Weight/Length: Bennett decided that this month he wanted to throw my calculations off by gaining a little more then he usually does. Bennett weighed in at 16 lbs. 15 oz. and 28" in length

HairHis hair continues to grow in the back of his neck and over his ears, its like a light brown with hints of dirty blonde in there. 

DiapersSize 3 Honest Company and Medium Gdiapers

Clothing: 6-12 Months in Gap, Old Navy, and Gymboree. Except some random jeans that must have been sized wrong from the Gap and they finally fit him. 9 Months in Carters, Oshkosh, and Target. 

Favorite ThingsSpoons, sitting/standing up, Scout, leapfrog table, our phones--He has so many favorite things, but this is what I can think of off the top of my head!

Likeshis elephant lovey, eating, walks with pop pop, walking around the lake, playing outside, being pushed in his swing

DislikesWhen we watch him try to get himself out of a tangled mess, or when he is trying to get a toy and we don't just give it to him. Despises sippy cups...don't let this picture fool you. He loved them for a while, hates them now. 

Eating: This month we started him on chicken, turkey, and yogurt. He has also tried asparagus, broccoli, nectarines, and cherries. I still make all of his food, and can't wait for him to try all the stuff I made yesterday. A delicious chicken casserole dish will be on the menu this week! 

Milestones: Slept through the night, Dedicated, Says mama (sometimes), Boo, waves hi and bye

Sleeping: On March 30th, Bennett decided he would sleep through the night. He made it from 7:30PM-6:30AM. 2 days later he got some sickness, and that threw that out the window. He did sleep again through the night last week, and has woken up once a night since. 

Mama Thoughts:

I can't believe that 8 months ago today, we were in the hospital painfully anticipating the birth of our son. Who knew that weeks of struggling to get him to gain weight, breastfeeding challenges, no sleep challenges, and so much more seems so trivial now. Not that newborns aren't fun, but Bennett is getting to such a fun age and we have so much fun playing with him! He has such a personality, and is like his mom when he makes you laugh he just has to laugh too. Hilarious!
