This month you're eight months old. Everyday I look at you and I feel like you grow more and more overnight. It's crazy and it makes me sad we're inching our way closer and closer to your first birthday. You keep us on our toes in every sense of the word my sweet little nugget. Here's what has been going on this past month:
that gummy smile makes my heart melt
that's how we all feel some days, sweet pea...just let it all out
checking out your goodies for valentine's day
In terms of bottle feeding, you still take 4-5 bottles a day, with 4-6 ounces/bottle. You really don't enjoy it all that much anymore because you like to feed yourself and use your hands so I have a feeling bottle weaning will be easy with you Little Bit.
playtime with Papa
sitting outside taking in a warmer day with some sunny skies
You still enjoy the jumper, and sometimes will sit still enough for us to push you around in the cart, but we've officially retired the bouncy seat and snug seat as you were done with those "baby" items. You're starting to want to pull up on pieces of furniture, and sit up in your crib, so I'm assuming more baby proofing for you is just around the corner.
You're a tech guru and love anything with a screen on it (my iPhone, sister's iPad, the TV)...oh no, we've created another technology monster!!!
You are developing such a FUN personality Carson. You giggle and babble all the time, have said "mama" and "dada" (mama was first...haha Jeff!) and you love to interact with everyone. You still love to be held, and go nuts if I'm in the room and not giving you 100% of my undivided attention. When we go out and do stuff, the family jokes that you're a perfect angel unless you catch a glimpse of me...then you have to have me and no one else will do.
I love our mornings spent together before Daddy and Sister get up, as that's our time to sit, welcome the day together, play with toys, and then you'll let me tickle you for a good 20 minutes. That laugh gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME. Nighttime is a sacred part of our day together and I savor those sweet moments each day when I get to pray with you and rock you to sleep...you're incredible Carson and I love you more than you will ever know!!
