8 Months Already

Our Sweet P turned 8 months old heart starts racing just thinking about how quickly this year with him is flying by...I continue to pray for time to slow down and while I know that is not possible I am learning to pray that I would soak up every moment with both of these boys!!

What are you up to this month Paxton James????

Weight- 20pounds 6.5 ounces
Wearing mostly 12 month clothes, although you need 9 month pants for the length (but your sweet Buddha belly requires you to wear 12 month pants in order to be more comfortable)
Size 3 diaper

You have had your very first ear infection and cold this past week, and bless your little heart you have felt absolutely miserable. You were so congested for a few days in there that you could hardly take a bottle and a few times you simply refused to eat (which is definitely NOT the norm with you). Thankfully we are on the mend and you have felt great today....yippee!!

You are "crawling" (I say the term loosely, because it is not an official on the knees crawl. You rock on your knees for a while then just lay on your belly and stretch/arm crawl to reach whatever you are interested in. Not the most efficient way, but you are certainly figuring out how to get the job done)

Before you got sick you were sleeping great. 12-13 hours a night with a couple naps during the day

You eat four 7 ounce bottles a day along with two meals. You enjoy your solid food and much prefer to feed yourself cheerios or small crackers than actually eat with a spoon

Your favorite toy right now is a baby doll. It really is the cutest thing I have ever watched to see you laugh and "talk" to this little baby. My mom says it's not at all surprising because you love to snuggle and be with people so much!

You are fascinated with your big brother. The louder and more obnoxious humorous he is the better for you! You love when he talks to you, runs and scares you! Your laugh when you play with Maddox is hilarious and contagious!

You are still my little "hip" baby. You prefer to be held most of the day and tend to freak out when I walk out of the room; however, I have seen major improvements in this area this past month....and you have even let your sweet Daddy give you a bottle and put you to bed on several occasions....whew....I was beginning to get a little worried!!

You are very laid back and such a sweet spirited little guy. Your eyes, smile and laugh still melt my heart on a daily basis! We are so thankful to have you in our lives! We love you our 8 month old Paxton James!!
