M is now 8 months old.  He is army crawling around the room.  He doesn’t venture far from where you place him on the floor.  Yet, that is.  He will get up on his hands and knees.

He takes two naps a day.

When exploring something new (like a toy or food), he will test it with his right hand pointer finger.

M still is not very keen on food.  He still has breastmilk every two hours during the day and once at night.

Overall, M is a very happy baby.  He is full of smiles and makes noises all day long.  M loves watching his brothers play.  E likes to play with M, which M absolutely loves.

At 8 Months Old, C is a full-time sitter.  He does the army crawl and rolls around to get where he wants to go.  He can also lift his belly off the floor while locking his legs.

C normally takes 3 naps a day.  Sometimes it’s only 2 naps.  The length of his naps average to about an hour in length each.  At night, C wakes about 10 times and still feeds at 11pm-ish, hopefully though, not for much longer.

C nurses every 3.5 to 4 hours during the day.  He is also up to three  solid meals a day.  He will eat anything and everything given to him.  He especially enjoys his oatmeal, avocado, and baked veggies like kumara (NZ’s sweet potato), pumpkin, potatoes, yams, and parsnip.

His skin has improved with medicine from the doctor, but every time the course of the medicine is finished, his skin flares up again.

Overall, C is a very happy boy, full of smiles.  He is in awe of his brother, E.  He finds it hilarious when E runs down the hall towards him, when he jumps, and when he cries.

Here is E at 8 Months Old.

35 Weeks Old & 8 Months Old (7)

At 8 months old, E is a good sleeper.  He still takes two naps a day.  The length of the naps varies from 45 minutes to 2 hours.  He hardly pees in his diaper during the night.  One thing I’ve noticed E doing this week was holding his pee during his nap time.  He isn’t consistent but he is definitely getting the idea that he can hold his pee.

E has discovered how to breathe air into his mouth to make noises.  He started making the “n” and “m” sound this week.  We are up to 3 solid meals a day for the most part.  E still nurses every two hours.  Hopefully that will start to decrease at some point – not that I mind breastfeeding him at all.   I really do enjoy nursing E and might be sad when he no longer needs breastmilk.

This week, E has been extremely whiney.  We aren’t sure why.  Maybe a tooth is on its way?  Time will tell, but we just go with the flow.
