Meet the Sullivans: Owen is 8 Months!

Owen is 8 Months!

Dear Owen,

This week you turn eight months old! You are 3/4 of a year old. Stop time, someone! Quick!

You...
...are crawling all over the house. Even up all 12 of the stairs.

...like to dance!

...are a dare devil and pull up on everything and anything.

...cruise around the furniture and walls.

...sometimes stand unassisted after letting go of whatever you've used to pull yourself up.

...use the walk-behind walker or a laundry basket turned upside down to get around.

...say ba-dada, dadada, mmm-ba, mmm-ma and heee.

...still love Gymboree class and have had fun keeping up with the "big kids" at open gym times.

...are eating solids like a champ. New foods you've tried this month are mashed avocado, Ella's brand ginger baby cookies, tomato basil soup, grapes, home baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon and yogurt.

...are drawn to books. Peek-a-Who? and Touch and Feel: Animals are your favorites.

...hate having your diaper changed. You prefer to be moving as opposed to laying around.

...smell as I imagine Heaven smells. I wish I could bottle it up and save it for when you're all grown up.

...take 3 naps a day. On a great day at least one of them is 90 minutes long.

...eat solids twice a day. The first time is after your morning nap and the second is at the dinner table with us during dinner time.

...are wearing 6-12 month clothes (and some 12-18 months outfits) and size 3 diapers.

...are rocked to sleep for each nap and at night.

...you wake up and nurse about 2-3 times a night.

...seem to be getting another tooth. The drool is coming out of your mouth in buckets.

...are the sweetest, smartest, most angelic little boy I have ever known and I love you with ever ounce of me.




xoxo,
Mommy
