Happy Eight Months, Allen!

How is it my baby is 8 months old already?!?!? Time is surely flying by!

I love you sweetie pie!!!
{pictures will be later}

Baby Stats
-------
Sleep
We need to talk about this, Little Man.
You have regressed back to a 1 month old.. You have been waking up ever few hours wanting a bottle or just want to get up and play.. This is making for rough nights and days for momma.. Also, 5:30 wake up screeches are not acceptable.. ;) You used to sleep so well, can we please go back to that?!?


Daily Routine
Since your brother and sister are back in school, I am trying to get our routine set. But we all know that will probably not happen.. After dropping bro & sis off, we come home and eat, play, have a few diaper changes and then its already time for pick up. When we get back home you will all nap and momma cleans the house. We need to get our routine back, hopefully within the next few weeks it will fall back into place :)

Feed
You absolutely love food and will eat almost anything! You will even find crumbs left from your bro and sis.. Grosses me out.. Your faves are:

Apricot w/ Apples
Strawberry Banana
Macaroni w/ Beef & Veggies {gag}
Sweet Potatoes
Mum Mum's
Spaghetti
Eggs {We are slowly introducing :) }

Diapers
I bought some of the Huggies Slip-On Diapers for you and so far they are great. Daddy doesn't really like them because you try and escape.. hahaha He just doesn't know the secret technique yet... Still in size 3's :)


Clothes
You are comfortably wearing 9/12 month clothes for just about everything. Your length has a lot to do with it. You are such a long child and definitely get it from daddy. You are also in between size 3/4 for shoes.. Chunky Feet!

Hair Color
Birth: Lots of Black Hair...
Currently: Blonde Hair w/ brown low lights ;)

Eye Color
Birth: Steel Grey
Currently: Blue..


Milestones
This big little boy took 2 steps the other day at papa's house.. I swear I just about had a heart attack! I guess he thinks that since he is the youngest, he has to do everything earlier that his bro & sis... Well, momma and sister started walking at 8 months, so I guess he has to too.. Lord help me!


Favorite Toys
Teething Keys
Hands
Feet
Links
Anything that makes noise
Anything he can get his hands on!




♥ Happy Eight Months, Allen!! ♥

Oh my gosh, this must be a 8 month old thing. Troy is 7.5 months and is waking up 2-3 times a night when normally its only once! NOT. OKAY

Truitt never started sleeping well so at least the regression didn't hurt me lol! WAY TO GO ALLEN ON THE STEPS!!! Truitt is so fast crawling I can't imagine what all he'll be getting into when he's walking!

Oh my!! Lol, 2 steps? I can't even get my little man to enjoy tummy time and he's 7.5 mths lol.
I can't imagine someone so little walking, but if your other kiddos did then there's a good chance you're going to be baby proofing the house soon if you haven't already :)
Have a great day!!
