My Dearest Little - 8 Month Letter

So I wrote this a week ago but 
didn't get around to publishing it.
Better late then never.
I love you snuggle muffin!
My Dearest Little One,

Well here we are...another month has gone by and you are now 8 months old.  I still can't believe how fast time is going with you.  I say it each month, but what they say is true - time flies!

In the past month things haven't really changed all that much.  You are still not moving and still have no teeth.  LOL.  Daddy and I are fine with that, but we know that you would probably enjoy this great big world a whole lot more if you were mobile.

You have moved on to enjoy feeding yourself.  You aren't trying with any sort of utensil, but those hands of yours sure do the trick.  We will start moving away from purees now and on to more solid food so that you can continue to work on this.

Your hair is still long and luscious.  We keep saying that you need a haircut, which you do, but we have yet to do it.  I love your little baby thin hair at the ends and the way it curls around your ears.  ::selfish mommy moment::

We are pretty sure you said "DADA" the other day and you know who (DADA) was super excited about it!  Mommy was excited too, but of course not so patiently waiting for you to say "MAMA."  But you love your Daddy so and he loves hearing you babble away with "DADADADADADADA."

You are growing like a weed and eating us out of house and home!  I don't know what we are going to do when you are a teenager and possibly have siblings!  You never let anyone forget to feed you and you are a great eater at that!  We have only found one food you dislike, squash, but we are going to try it again and see if you can't change your mind on that one.

It is basically getting to be Summer around these parts and you are a sweaty boy when you sleep so we have switched to summer pajamas, which are much harder to find then expected!  You are so cute with your little toes sticking out of your pants though and I am secretly loving this warm weather just a little more because of that fact.

This past month we spent a lot of time with our favorite people and you are becoming more attached to them and less "friendly" to "strangers."  You still smile and laugh for them, eventually, but we have found our "Stranger Danger" stage and we are working on moving out of it.

We love you so much Snuggle Muffin!  Keep growing big and strong and know that Mommy and Daddy are always here for you.  Work on them teefers and crawling/walking!

I love you,

8 Month Stats:
Weight: 22 pounds - he can now sit more upright in his carseat :)
Height: I honestly didn't measure him this month, but I assume he has grown another half inch at this rate.
Clothes: 9 months for all and even some 12 months!
