8 Months!

Thomas, you had your 8th Monthday on October 23rd!

(My parents stayed with us last week, and my dad asked me if Thomas just had a "monthday".)

You are 8 months old! Mommy and Daddy can't believe it (we say this every month)!

Warning: Lots of Pictures!

We are guessing you weigh around 17 pounds.
You are wearing size 6-9 month clothing and 9 month clothing. 
You are wearing size 3 diapers.

You are still eating 6 oz every 3-4 hours during the day. Some nights you eat 8 oz before you fall asleep! 
You eat 2-3 meals of baby food a day depending on long you nap. You take one long nap and sometimes you will take a short nap late in the afternoon. You sleep through the night (8pm-8am) the majority of the time. Every now and then you will wake up in between 11pm-12am.

Developmentally: You have your first tooth! You are still saying "dada" all the time! You discovered how to go from laying down to sitting up. (I love finding you sitting up in your crib just smiling after you take a nap or wake up in the morning!), you are crawling, you reach for us when you want to be picked up, and when someone asks you "where is dada or mama?", you look at us.
You love music and love for us to sing to you. After we stop singing, you will make vocalizations & keep making them until we start singing again. You are trying to pull yourself up to a standing position. 
And our favorite is you learned how to give kisses when we ask "Can I have a kiss?" You play a game mainly with your daddy where you turn your head away from him when he asks for kisses! And then you smile! (Can you say ORNERY!)

Three word to describe your personality this past month: playful, fearless, and inquisitive.

We have started using simple sign language with you this past month. We are showing the signs for milk, bath, more, and dog.

Favorite things: seeing your daddy when he comes home from work, you LOVE watching the dogs, music, climbing on pillows and large stuffed animals, bath time, swinging, and going for walks

Dislikes: still getting your face washed after you eat baby food

You tried to eat your sticker this month!

We LOVE you so much baby boy!

Keep the faith,


  1. He is so adorable! And how smart that he knows when someone asks where you guys are!

  2. I LOVE THE WAGON!!!! T is getting cuter and cuter!!!!!
