Foster Brady 8 Month Update

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Age: 8 Months 
Height: 26 inches
Weight: 19 lbs 8 oz
Milestones: Again, so much, I can't believe how quickly he has been growing 
Best Moment: He can say mom...yeah, it's pretty awesome. Lo always said mamamamama but he's so funny he'll chase me through the house yelling MOMMM! MOMMM! and you can tell he is just ticked off. He is not only crawling now but is trying to walk! He'll be standing on something and let go and try to move to the next thing. This results in lots of tumbles and bumps but he's a tough little guy! 
Health: Perfect. He has the normal teething stuff, runny nose, fever but all in all he's been doing great. 
Eating: Uh, he's almost 20 pounds. Obviously eating is going great. We still exclusively breastfeed but if we're sitting down for breaky, lunch or dinner than he will snack on whatever we're eating. The teeth make eating interesting sometimes though ;) momma gets a little tense when it's time to eat. 
Teeth: 3 little teeth poking through, two on the bottom and one on the top
Extra Comments: The thumb sucking was just temporary and the spit up is basically done! Whoohoo! He will still do it every once in awhile but not nearly as much.  

I cannot believe these 8 months have come and gone so quickly. I just want my baby back! Little man is trying to walk, has teeth and can say momma. My poor heart can barely take it! With that being said I love seeing him grow up into the most adorable little toddler. I love his rolls and hit pouty lips. I love his surprise blonde hair just like his sister. I love his little sharp baby teeth and the way he can't really get food in his mouth so he just pushes his hand to his face and knocks himself over.  

He is definitely a mommas boy. He follows me all over the house and if I am stopped then he wants to be held...let's be honest, even if I'm not stopped he still wants to be held. He is our spoiled little boy but I don't think you can spoil such cute little things rotten. I say this as he is yelling at me to pick him up while I try and finish this post. Why didn't I just hold him and finish? Well baby likes to type and baby has not yet learned how to spell....or even talk for that matter. 

Some of his favorite things include:

Drinking out of a big cup
Playing with sister
Trying to sneak into sisters room
Showers with momma
Playing rough with dad
Bike rides
Being held

Some things he doesn't like include:

Sleeping in his crib
Being set down
Not getting to go into sisters room
His carseat
The dogs, unless he's being held
Being told no
When mom walks into the other room

Time sure does fly doesn't it?! I can't even believe it's already been 8 months. It's so interesting to see how our boys compare (since they are exactly the same age). My little man can barely crawl, I attribute it to his short pudgy legs and huge buddha belly!
I absolutely love the photos, did you take them yourself?
Also, why did you stop doing your updates?

It does! I know! I remember we were pregnant at the same time :) My little guy has the pudgiest legs! They are so short too, just like me haha poor thing. I just haven't really changed from my last update so I haven't felt the need to update on nothing haha I haven't been working out to hard since school started, I can't seem to find time in the day but I actually started working out this week so maybe if there is any change then I'll do an update next month :) I did take them :)

He is so precious! What a sweet little guy!

Also, I just tried following your blog a sec ago but for some reason it wasn't letting me do it, so I guess I will try back later or tomorrow... But I am totally reading your blog fyi! Love it!

Dalin, Olivia, Tenley said...

Oops! Jk after trying another way it let me, haha.

Makeover With Aspen said...

What a beautiful baby boy! Love the pics. My oldest son can not handle the sound of the blender. So if I want to make a smoothie I make sure to do so between the hours he is at school. : )

Makeover With Aspen said...

It's the weirdest thing! He doesn't mind anything else (shower, vacuum, hair dryer, ext) but the blender freaks him out
