Tanner David: 8 Month Update

Weight: 20 pounds 4 ounces

Length: Only reason I know his weight is because of frequent visits to the pediatrician

Head Circumference: See above :)

Physical Milestones:  Tanner's physical milestones are EXPLODING this month!!  He is army crawling EVERYWHERE.  He started clapping at the beginning of this month, started pulling to stand too!  We had to drop his crib mattress down 2 times in as many days!  Problem is, he couldn't get himself down for a while!  He would stand and play for a while but then cry because he couldn't figure out how to get down.  By the end of the month, he was getting a little better at lowering himself down!  :)

Eating/Sleeping:  We are consistently eating 3 meals a day and still nursing about the same amount.  He is actually an excellent napper so some days we drop one nursing session because he doesn't seem to need it!  Still the happiest kid ever.  Still waking up 1 time per night not usually more.  I thought we found some consistency getting to about 2 or 3 at least each night, but then it started to fluctuate again.  The good news is that even if I wake up at 11:45 to feed him, he still sleeps until 5.  He seems to be liking waking up at 5 am...which I don't really love.  :)  But I think Brody went through something like this.  Hopefully it's just a phase. 

This guy LOVES smiling, laughing, pulling to stand on everything and exploring all the places he shouldn't!  He puts everything in his mouth and loves eating.  I feel so blessed to have him as an addition to our family.  It feels like he's always been here and he truly makes me so happy.  I wish I could slow down time!
