8 months old

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Grayden, you are 8 months old today~

to celebrate we stayed home and played all day today!

Here is what you are up too:


You weigh 19 lbs 9 oz


You have 5 bottles a day between 6-7 oz


You love to eat all kinds of food, I would say your favorites right now are squash and pears and your least favorite is green beans. Puffs are a huge hit as well as anything mom gives you off her plate!


You've started to do this fake smile thing when we try to get your attention.


You also recently started to mimic our faces when we talk to you, like if we look surprised, you make this cute little "o" with your mouth...so adorable!

You are so happy, I love the way your face lights up when you see me walk into your room in the morning...melts my heart! You make me feel like the best mommy in the world and I love you that about you!


You stand up on everything and even started to walk along the furniture.





If you start walking on your own anytime in the near future I might have to push you down, I am not ready for you to be so grown up yet....just kidding, its probably not much different than crawling 100 miles an hour like you already do :)

You are so busy, always on the go but to my delight you do like to snuggle from time to time!

You celebrated your 1st Christmas and New Years this month


You normally take two naps anywhere from 45 mins-2 hours but you can get by with only one when you want to be stubborn and skip one!

You have been sleeping great during the night. (9:30 pm -9:00 am) up once around 5 for a bottle.

You wear size 3 diapers


You wear mostly 6 months size clothes.

You went on your first snowmobile ride with mommy and daddy.


You've been holding your bottle on your own for a few (3?) months already but I don't think I've ever wrote about it


You had your adoption finalized on Dec 21!


You love to play peek-a-boo and play with anything that you can put in your mouth, (hence the 8 month picture at the top!) you also recently started to bang your toys together which is really comical to watch!

You turn 1 year old in only 4 months and that makes me want to cry....you grow too fast and I just want to freeze you in time!

We love you sweet boy! You've blessed the past 8 months of our lives so much!

Wow!! The 8th month was a big one! Dont you just want to tell him to stop growing or push a pause button somewhere?
What a sweet heart!

I love reading your updates! G-man is almost exactly a month older than Ty so it gives me a heads up on what's coming! :)

He is getting so big! It has been so fun to watch him grow up into such a big boy.

I love the monthly updates! The cute pictures never get old! I know what you mean about sticking things in his mouth. Oliver is the same way. Last week he swallowed one of Makenna's stickers. I tried to get it out of his throat, but it disappeared. Almost gave me a heart attack!
