Campbell Eight Months

Weight: We weighed Campbell two weeks ago and he was 14.5 pounds--1%. So I would guess he's 15 pounds now. He's getting very heavy to carry around!

Height: 26.5 inches--7%. We don't call him peanut for no reason! :)
Sleep: Campbell's sleep schedule still averages about 7:30-7:00. Sometimes he wakes up a little before 7:00 but he happily hangs out in his crib until I go get him at 7:00. Sometimes he sleeps until 7:30 and I love when he does that! He takes two naps a day. They usually last about an hour and a half.

Eat: Breakfast, lunch and dinner plus nursing 4 times a day. Campbell loves any and all food. There seriously isn't one food item that he doesn't love. He is SO impatient when I'm prepping his food. He bangs on his tray and screams. I've started saying "No!" to him when he does that and I think he understands what it means because he always looks at me and stops. Sometimes he cries after he eats all of his food because he's sad it's gone and sometimes he's so full from his meal he looks like he's in a food coma. I'm not sure if he has a favorite food but Campbell does really love his puffs. They're usually his appetizer (while I'm prepping his meal) and dessert.
Clothes: Still in 3-6 month clothes. He can wear some 6-9 month clothes and there's a couple of 6-12 month pieces that he can wear but 95% of his wardrobe is 3-6 months.

Diapers: Pampers Swaddlers Size 2
Likes: Campbell really enjoys playing with his toys. We got him a piano that he loves banging on. His favorite toy is still the stacking rings. He gets a great deal of amusement out of pulling his socks off then sticking his toes in his mouth. Baths and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse are still favorites. Madison and Ivy are his best friends.

Dislikes: Waiting on food. Being left in the church nursery. Shopping for too long.
Milestones: Campbell learned how to clap this month! Cutest thing ever, obviously. He can also stand up on his own while holding onto something. It's gotten hard to put diapers on him because he won't lay still anymore. He's always rolling around and grabbing for everything.

Month Eight: This has been the most wonderful month!!!!!! My hard baby decided to turn into an easy baby and it has been amazing. Campbell is chill and just goes with the flow. I've started to chill out myself and I think it's possibly one of the reasons this month has been easier. I'm so much more relaxed about everything. I wish I had learned to relax a lot sooner.
Naps used to be my greatest struggle with Campbell and they are so easy now. I literally lay him down awake and he falls asleep almost instantly. It's been like this for about almost a month now and it still just blows my mind considering how hard I used to have to work to get him to take a nap.
All About Campbell: I'm so in love with my little boy. He is just so sweet and funny and fun! Campbell taps/bangs on everything with his left hand. He is most definitely, without a doubt, a lefty. He also taps his left leg while we're holding him. It's like his nervous tick or something. People tell me all the time how sweet Campbell is. Although whenever he's not happy about something, you better watch out! He isn't afraid to let you know when he isn't thrilled with a certain situation. Most of the time though, he is a happy little guy. He smiles, laughs and enjoys life. And our life is so much better with our little Campbell in it.
