8 Months

That’s 2/3 of a year. And it’s going way too fast.

Not a terribly long post today…. just a quick update. Lincoln is crawling when he feels like it, but he can get around faster rolling and army crawling still, so he usually crawls for a bit, gets impatient, and chooses a faster mode of transportation. He talks a lot, but no real words yet. He says da-da-da-da pretty often, but I’m still not convinced he knows who that is. It’s just the most fun thing to say, I think. He’s sleeping better when we’re on a schedule. But on days when he misses his 12-ish nap, he gets a bit fussy by the evening. He LOVES to stand now, so we just bought him a play table thing. He’s taken his hands off a few times and balanced for a second or two, but nothing crazy 🙂 We are not ready for that. He’s eating 2 meals a day….. and because he’s so likely to have allergies, we’re having to be super slow with adding in foods. So, he’s had: bananas, peas, carrots, avocado and pear. We’re hoping to start apples this week and maybe cheerios or something next week when MY PARENTS GET HERE and bring the crazy stash of American goodies. We’re still nursing 5 times a day and I can’t complain. Nursing has seriously not been the challenge I was worried it would be. Every once in a while I do wish I didn’t have something scheduled every 3 hours, but only on my most selfish days! For the most part, it’s the calmest part of the day and the only time he’s still….. sort of. He’s over his bronchitis (yay), but 3 times now, yes, 3 times, he has puked allllll over me after he nurses in the morning. Seriously. What is up with that? No fever, no fussiness, nothing. Just puke and then he plays like nothing is wrong. I mean, at least it’s not a whole day of puking.

likes: standing, remotes/cords/phones…. anything he can’t have, for some reason he thinks it’s hilarious when I say mama
dislikes: poopy diapers. seriously, as soon as it’s in the diaper he starts fussing til you change him. if he’s asleep, he wakes up and fusses. not that it’s a bad thing, just funny. and getting dressed, still.
teeth: 2!!! And we think maybe the two on top are coming in soon….. he’s started making funny faces again like he can feel them with his tongue.
hair: ha.
sleep habits: better. sleeping 7 to 7, and 2-3 naps a day (usually all 45 minutes to an hour or so)
clothing size: 6-9 month clothes still, but some of them are getting small… I’ve started putting short sleeved ones over long sleeves because I want him to wear them before they get too small!
