8 months-Cayson

My sweet cuddly, smiley boy it has been 8 sweet months and I can't imagine life without you. You have been such a joy…you keep me on my toes. You are SO busy and ALL boy!! I love it.

You are a crawling fool these days. You will get where you want and fast, SO fast! You are pulling to stand like its your job and starting to cruise. I'd be shocked if you aren't walking soon. You can stand close to 5 seconds without holding on. It's so weird to see you standing and so strong so little. Ha! I think you will be SO much happier once you can walk. I actually prefer the walking stage over the crawling stage…you and Isabella are such good crawlers that you are just as busy if not busier than walkers…and crawling is just gross, hands all over dirty floors and I can't set you down most places you wish you could.

You absolutely adore your sissy. You laugh and giggle at her all day long. You want to do everything that she is doing. It is quite cute these days watching you guys side by side playing. 

You love, love food. Any kind of food. You prefer finger food over pureed food these days. You will fuss until I give you "real" food. You love pretty much anything.  Nursing or giving you a bottle these days is near impossible. You are so distracted if I want to even attempt to get you to nurse well we have to be in a separate room which is usually impossible. You were a teething fool this past month and now have 5 teeth with 2 more on the way. You and your sister teeth on your own terms and get teeth all out of order. You got your two upper lateral incisors before your 2 front teeth though they will be in within days ha! You also got your lower lateral tooth as your 3rd tooth. Cracks me up, I knew you were acting like you were getting a tooth but kept looking up top and never expected that one next:)

Your schedule is about the same as last month though you have been sleeping in until 8:30-9 thanks to teething, still random on whether you take 2 or 3 naps a day:

3-5:00 am-nurse (hoping to wean this soon)
8-9 am wake up
8:30-9-nurse, food, play
12:30-nurse, play
3:30-nurse, play
4-5-sleep (this nap is hit or miss depending on the day)
6-nurse, dinner food, play

You sweet boy!! I can't get enough!
