Connor James: 8 Months


Dear Connor:

Goodness baby boy, you are changing and growing so fast! You are a curious little guy. You are excited to see the world. You can't wait to go and see and touch and get into everything you possibly can. You are ready to take on the world.

And you are close to doing just that. You have officially started army crawling now. You don't go very fast - unless you are trying to beat me to something you aren't supposed to have. You also don't go very far because I'm not sure you have completely figured out what you are doing yet, but you are moving. You have been able to move on uneven surfaces for awhile now and now you are close to full mobility. You get on your hands and knees and rock then flatten out and army crawl yourself around.

You haven't been much of a talker, but lately you have been a little more vocal. You definitely talk more than your sister isn't around. Apparently it's hard to get a word in otherwise. You have said mama but it's usually just out of desperation in getting to me. And since we are always together, it doesn't happen a lot. You haven't said anything else yet, but you have been making more sounds recently.

You are eating and sleeping great. You love your purees. There pretty much isn't anything you don't love. As long as it is food and going into your mouth, you aren't picky. But of course you still love your formula. We had to work out a new schedule because you were getting hungry midday but we got it figured out. That small eating problem was causing napping problems. But once we got that sorted, you started napping better. You are still napping three times a day. You have a quick 40 minute nap in the morning then a long nap in the afternoon for about 2 hours or so then another evening nap for about 40 minutes. You aren't always so fond of the evening nap but you still really need it. You are going a little longer between naps these days with all the awake time filled with playtime.

Speaking of playtime, you are happy with just about anything as long as you can chew on something. You don't seem to be getting another tooth again. You just like to chew. You are also big on crawling all over on me when I sit on the floor next to you. You have been a bit antsy lately and haven't been wanting to just play alone but on the right day at the right time I can get you play solo. Your favorite things are definitely the things you aren't supposed to have. I am constantly taking away remotes and my phone and you are determined to go after them. If it's not for you then you want it.

You are so happy and laid-back. Sure you get antsy but mostly you are just curious about the world. Every day we can see more of your personality. You are just an awesome little boy. We love you so much!

Love, Mama
