8 Months

Little Nathan is not quite so little any more.  He’s already 8 months old and I just can’t believe it!

Here’s a peek into what he’s currently doing:

  • Sits up like a champ.  He only falls over when he looks up too fast or when he pitches a fit and acts like the world is coming to an end.
  • Transfers toys from one hand to the other and can deliberately pick up his pacifier and put it in his mouth.
  • Says “mama” and “dada”, but not to us specifically yet.  He also says “heeeee” when we say “hey” to him.  I’m wondering if that’s not him trying to repeat us.
  • Recognizes the sign for “up” and “more” and I’m pretty sure he did the sign for “dog” today.
  • Eats any fruits and veggies we give him.  Also loves bread, chicken, turkey, and biter biscuits.  (Which I’m hesitant to give him again because they’re terribly messy.)
  • Still nurses three times a day!
  • Rolls easily from back to belly and belly to back.
  • Has no interest whatsoever in crawling or pulling himself up.
  • Still jumps himself silly in his horse.
  • Loves to be outside in the sunshine
  • Has developed a terrible case of separation anxiety
  • Plays “peek a boo” and LOVES it
