Oops, I’m a couple of weeks late with Baby J’s 8 month update! Work’s been busy so blogging has taken a back seat.
There’s not a ton to tell at 8 months though. Baby J is as adorable and sweet as ever. He still eats really well. He still does not sleep the greatest (grr). And I’m still really tired as a result!
He’s not crawling yet, but that doesn’t mean he’s not mobile! This kid is a roller. He will easily roll all over the room to get at what he wants. If I put him down in one spot and then leave the room for a few minutes, I never know where I’ll find him when I get back. I’ve actually started closing the baby gate when I put him on the floor upstairs because I don’t trust him not to roll down!
Baby J is still breastfeeding and going strong. At this point, I’m quite optimistic that we’ll make it a full year breastfeeding. Since he started solid foods, his daily breastmilk intake has dropped significantly and I’m actually building up a frozen stash again! I will probably have enough to stop pumping at work sometime in mid-August, which would be really nice.
He still adores his big brother and sister, and the feeling is mutual. Little Man loves to make Baby J laugh and comes up with the goofiest faces and voices in the process. At 3 now (!!) Mei-Mei is a bit of a Hulk with him, and we occasionally have to watch to make sure she doesn’t love him to death. Baby J has discovered he can pull her hair, though, so they’re even.
Exciting times are coming up for Baby J, though, when he starts school (technically parents’ day out) next month!
