Roland - 8 Months

{Milestones} Yesterday, we sat you down in the living room and noticed you were facing a totally different direction a minute later. It's fun to watch you progress. I think every parent enjoys watching their kids get stronger and more advanced. You can stretch far and reach for toys when you're sitting.

You still love rocking back and forth and moving your arms all the time.

Another HUGE milestone? You got your FIRST TOOTH this past week. Before you cut your first tooth, you were waking up all the time at night. There were three nights where we could tell you were in some pain from your new tooth. Now that the tooth has popped through, you aren't waking up at night.

{Temperament} Not sure why I still have this one on here... LOL You are the happiest baby ever... You make all of us happier throughout the day.

{Eating & Sleeping} I feel like I'm having deja vu in the evenings around bed time. We're in a pattern of having a hard time at bed times. You've been going to bed between 9 and 10. 

You started taking longer naps! Before this past week, you had been taking four cat naps a day between 20 and 40 minutes long. I never knew what cat naps were like with a baby, but I'm thankful we're switching to one or two decent naps. 

You are eating two times a day when it comes to solid food. Non solid food is 6 to 7 times a day.

I'm going to start making your baby food. I already know I'm going to buy a lot of sweet potato.

{Weight} Not sure.

{Height} You seem so much taller! I'll have to find out next month when they measure at your appointment.

{Clothes} You are in 24 month shirts and pants. My favorite shirt of yours is this white button down shirt you got from a friend. You look like you should be on the beach when you wear it.

{Hair} You're hair is coming in thick. You have brown hair with some blonde highlights.

{Eye} True BLUE.

{Likes} You love sitting up and reaching for toys. You smile all the time. You love it when Liam interacts with you.

You love being outside.

{Dislikes} Getting Dressed.

{Outings} We went to my mom's group at church for the first time this year.

Of course, we've been going to our weekly playgroup. It's fun watching our group grow with the new babies. :)
