Bennett | 8 Months Old
Height: 27 inches maybe? No clue really.
Eat: I just dropped a nursing session so Bennett nurses 4 times a day now. He also eats breakfast, lunch and dinner. I usually offer him purees first then give him some finger foods after. Sometimes I don't bother with the purees but he still loves them so I like to give them to him. He's getting much better about textures now (at first he wasn't so sure about real foods) and will eat anything I give him. Although I'm pretty sure he is just not a fan of bananas. He always makes a face. Bennett good at feeding himself and uses that pincher grasp pretty great. He is not a very messy eater at all (praise!) and it doesn't take much food to fill his tiny belly up!
Diapers: Size 3 Pampers Swaddlers, day and night.
Likes: Food, baths, Campbell, sitting in your lap, touch and feel books, his paci, getting out and about/running errands with Mommy, smiling.
Dislikes: Clothes going over his head. This kid still cries his eyes out every time you put a shirt over his head. Every. Time. They aren't even tight or hard to get over. I don't get it.
Month Eight: Bennett was a little more difficult this month than he ever has been. He has been trying to cut some teeth for over a month now. I have never seen it take so long for teeth to cut through. It's made him a little fussy but even Bennett's version of fussy is hardly anything to complain about. Instead of being perfect, he's just been good. Ha! Overall, still the best baby. He isn't feeling the need to be held all day long anymore so that's nice. Now that he's sitting up, he likes to just chill and play with toys. He seemed to grow up a lot to me this month.
