Jack {8 months}

Jackers. Happy 8 months big boy! I know I said last month that you started lots of new things, but I think this month you've learned even more!
Even from last month to this month, I've noticed a change in your face and little by little that baby face is slowly fading away. 
What's not fading however, is your chubby little cheeks! I swear I could just kiss those things all day. I've never seen a baby with such kissable cheeks!
You still have just two little bottom teeth and you like to do this weird/cute lip thing where you rub it against your teeth. You are drooling and mouthing like crazy and I will be so realized when those 2 top teeth poke through! 
With only 2 teeth, eating table food is a little difficult although you want to so bad. You're loving mandarin oranges right now and easily go through 2 of the Dole fruit cups. You still get a container of fruit and vegetable baby food at dinner and I think you're not too fond of squash as the last few times you've had it you fused and didn't eat it all. You also tried Mum Mums this month, yogurt melts, and apple and ginger organic teething biscuits. You still take 6oz bottles every 4-5 hours, including 2 bottles in the middle of the night.
Speaking of the middle of the night, you are still waking up twice. You go to bed between 7-7:30pm and wake up at 11:30 and 3:00ish. You usually wake up at 5:30 or 6, take a small 4 oz bottle and then sleep until 7:30am. Naps are going strong, and you usually take one longer nap in the afternoon and a shorter one in the morning.
You're still in size 2 Pampers, but once we use this box it's on to size 3. Most 6 month clothes are too small and you're wearing mostly 6-12 months. Even some 9m clothing is too small, especially one piece outfits-it looks like you are wearing high waters. I just bought you a new 9m romper and you wore it once before it became too short. Most of your sleepers are 12m.
Right after you turned 7 months, you consistently started saying Dada. Of course. You also say something that sounds very close to hi and hey. One morning Ben came out of his room and we both swear you said "hi, dada." It was so clear that Ben replied, "I'm not dada silly." I'm sure it was a fluke, and that you didn't really know what you were saying. Or you're a genius. That's probably more likely. You've said momma several times, usually when I'm feeding you.
This month you really mastered crawling and going from crawling and laying down to sitting up. Several times I've come to get you in the morning and you're just sitting there in your crib waiting for me:) We have to close doors behind us now as you will crawl out of your room and go exploring around the house. Full on baby proofing is happening next weekend!
You are also trying to pull up on everything including the bath tub, which scares me to death. It won't be long until we say goodbye to the duck tub and move you to the big tub.
You started daycare full time this month and I know MeMaw misses watching you. Of course you got a cold your first week complete with a runny nose and you DO NOT like having your nose wiped. There were two nights in a row where you were so congested and just couldn't get comfortable. You woke up almost every hour on the hour which made every one tired come morning. You had your first dose of tylenol to help you get more comfortable and it seemed to help.
You continue to be our happy, loveable baby. You love to jump in your exercauser or Johnny Jump and when people hold you, you love to bounce up and down and kick those little legs. You've also started moving and shaking your head when music comes on or when we sing to you.
Try not to get so big this next month. Love you my sweet baby.
