8 Months!

Jadon is eight months old! And I'm writing about it less than a week afterwards! :-)

Jadon is doing great. He's up to 18.5 pounds (44%) and 28 inches (I think that was around 45% too). He loves eating and makes a lot of noise while doing it. We've added chicken, oatmeal, plain yogurt and some beef and noodles and other food we're eating smashed up. I gave him some cauliflower yesterday and he wasn't a fan. I guess the texture was a little weird. He doesn't like the Bumbo so much, especially the tray. He takes it off pretty quickly. Eliana never did this so it's funny to see how different they are.

I dropped his dream feed last Thursday and he's doing great! He's nursing four times a day (sometimes five) and sleeping from around 7pm to 6-6:30am. Yay! It's always bittersweet dropping feedings but it's good that he's growing and that I can go to bed whenever I want now. He's mostly taking two naps a day but sometimes still takes a little snooze in the evenings. He definitely sucks on his fingers and thumbs but not consistently like Eliana did. He also easily takes a pacifier when he goes to sleep.

Jadon is great at sitting and loves playing with his toys. He loves playing in the exersaucer and making lots of noise. Sometimes when he wants our attention he'll jump loudly and when we look at him he stops and then repeats the cycle over and over. He's talking a lot and likes blowing through his lips. He loves playing with Eliana and they have lots of play time in their room together. He likes to bang on things and make noise too. He also loves to stand up and can walk a little and move with our help. He still has no interest in rolling over and pretty much lays there when we put him on his stomach. He will stay in a crawling position and is starting to rock some. He's a patient child!

Jadon is a sweet, laid-back, fun little boy. He is such a joy and makes us smile. We are so blessed!
