8 Months

Bowen :: Eight Months Old
Weight: No official weigh in this month again, and I haven't weighed him on my own. He's wearing mostly 9 month onesies and sleepers, or 6-12 month shirts. I'm very curious to get official stats next month! 
Eats: He drinks 4 bottles a day - 3 are 7 oz and one 4 oz. He eats 3 meals a day - 2 that are oatmeal and a fruit/veggie and a mid-day veggie. While Matt and I were gone for a week, he went from fumbling around trying to get the Puffs in his mouth to one hundred percent mastery.  
Sleeps: He sleeps from 7:00-7:00 at night and still takes 3 naps a day. His first nap is a short one, his mid-day nap is the longest and his 3rd nap often happens in the car seat or the jog stroller. If he misses the 3rd nap, sometimes he's in bed by 6:30! 
Hair & Eyes: His hair is growing in so fuzzy up top and still very blonde. His eyes are definitely still blue - is it safe to say they will stay that way?
Nicknames: Bo, Bowie, Biscuit, Biskers, Biskers Whiskers
Milestones: Two teeth have fully popped through this month and I love the little toothy grin! He babbles a mile a minute now - da da da, ma ma ma, ba ba ba, na na na, ya ya ya. I love hearing his sweet little voice! He sits up to play and easily passes toys back and forth between his hands. He's also figured out how to drink from a sippy cup, although he pretty much gives himself a bath in the process. He has the best laugh, and gets himself totally tickled at the sound of it. This month, Matt and I went on vacation for a week and Bo hung out at home with my mom. I think this was more of a milestone for me! It was great to spend some time with Matt and our friends (and sleep in!) but I was beyond ready to get home to him at the end of the week! 
Likes: Mealtimes, oatmeal, puffs, pears, bananas, sweet potatoes… etc. Beebopping in his exersaucer, grabbing Buddy's ears, chewing on books, turning bath time into a wave pool, toys that crinkle, empty wipes packages that crinkle, the sound of his own voice turned up LOUD.
Dislikes: Being prevented from putting the iPhone or remote in his mouth, finishing a bottle, running out of Puffs, being awake for too long. 
I don't know where the time has gone. Three quarters of a year have already past! Sometimes I look at you and I see a boy growing up so fast, and other times when you snuggle into my neck, I remember that you are still a little bitty baby. You are at such a fun stage and it makes my heart swell to hear your full-belly laugh. I love driving around town listen to your chatter away in the car seat or watching you play with your toys (or a crumpled up water bottle, more often than not.) You are such a joy to both your Dad and I, and we love our little life with you.

Give him to me NOW! So cute! Since I suck at blogging and haven't posted for 2 months I also have a pic of B trying to grab his sticker off his shirt as well! :)

I am just loving these pictures. His eyes are mesmerizing...

He won't be Baby Bo for long!

He is too cute -- that toothy smile is the best!

(I am a little late, it's almost time for his 9 month post, I know. lol)
He is so super duper precious Megs! And Henry still has his "baby" moments with me, so you can rest assured they should last until he is at least 2. :) They are growing up so fast!
