But anyways, back to my boy.
He weighs 22lbs. I'm not sure how long he is. Probably at least 29 inches. He's still in the 95percentile for weight and I think 65-75percentile for height. His 2 bottom teeth are growing in. I don't see any other ones about to break through. He's in 12month clothes and size 4 diapers. I think he's in size 3 shoes. I'm not sure, I never put shoes on his sausage feet :)
He's eating baby food. I think he might be ready for tiny bits of real food. So far every time I've given him real food he's gagged. Even smashed up bananas. Lol. Last night I gave him really small pieces of macaroni and cheese and he LOVED it. He was smacking and licking his lips. It was so cute. And no gagging!
In the last week he's gotten a little feisty with me. I'm so use to this cool and calm kid so the first time he did it it caught me off guard. When I take something away from you that he's really loving- usually a wrapper from Raya's fruit snacks- he gets so mad! And cries the maddest cry. Instantly. Its clearly a pissed off cry. And it sounds like he's "yelling" at me. Its so funny to see the little bits and pieces of his growing personality. I wonder what else he has in store for me.
He started off his 8th month in his Razorback Red. I was thinking it was his first Razorback game but ACTUALLY the day we got home from the hospital with him they were playing in the Sugar Bowl. It was a diapointing game, so this weekend's season opener was a much better one to be alert for ;) We didn't get to watch it because it wasn't televised, but he dressed up for it!
And whats the most important thing to learn when you turn 8 months? How to Call Those HOGSSSS!!!!
You are the most beautiful baby boy. I seriously look at you all day long and think "how are you so cute?!!?" You really are gorgeous. You are so easy and so fun and soooo sweet. Almost every time you look at me you smile and your eyes tell me all I need to know: That you love me as much as I love you and you truly are a Mama's boy. When you have a baby everyone talks about loving this new thing like you've never loved anything before. I don't remember anyone telling me that this new thing would love me like I'd never been loved before. You complete me in a way I never knew I needed to be. I'm so thankful for you and so lucky to have such a sweet baby boy. Just stop growing so fast! I love you.
