8 months old

Jayden today you are 8 months old. I can not believe how fast you are growing up. Here are some of the things he can do in bullet form.

  • Crawl
  • Cruise the furniture
  • Love to pet the cat
  • Pulls hair
  • Has 2 bottom teeth
  • Is working on his 2 top teeth coming in
  • Blows raspberries
  • Love to splash in the tub
  • Eat
  • He love baby food but he loves big people food more
  • Says ah da for daddy
  • Says tttt we think it is for brother but who knows
  • Loves to scream back and forth to you
  • When he sees his daddy his face just lights up
I am so in love with him. Now if he would just sleep through the night, preferably in his own bed.
Any ideas? Cry it out is not really an option cause brother and Daddy both need sleep to go to school and work the next day. He sleeps with us, either in our bed or in our room in the pack and play.

Oooh hard one! I am not sure how to answer.

Thanks for the comment on my blog.

I don't have any suggestions for you, since we did the "cry it out" method, but 8 months sure is a fun age! :)

Happy ICLW

Oh, that is so hard. Ceara slept in my bed too, and didn't sleep thru the night until she was over a year old. I resigned myself to it, because when I put her in a crib, she just climbed out. Couldn't walk yet, but damn, she could climb! Nothing like the panic attack when you walk into the baby's room to see her dangling from the outside of the crib bars, laughing!
Farty stated sleeping about 7 hours at a stretch at about 5 weeks old, when his pediatrician recommended some rice cereal in his bottle before bed to help with his reflux. Now I give him a bath and a warm bottle with cereal in it just before bed, and he sleeps about 11-12 hours. Good luck!

Happy 8 months! He's got two teeth already? Cool!

yeah i don't know what i'm going to do if i'm lucky enough to get #2 because we did CIO with Piper. this is the age though when they learn and hopefully in the next few months sleep will be much easier. piper still has just two bottom teeth at 15 mos, he's going to lap her!

Happy Birthday Jayden!

No suggestions on him not sleeping through the night but I hope you guys find a balance soon.

Hope that the hair he loves to pull isn't the cat's! :)
