connor: 8 months

  • babbles constantly. i love hearing his "ba ba ba"
  • he has 4 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth. we don't call him chompers for nothing! those 4 top teeth came in with a vengeance and wreaked havoc on his sleep (he's the first of our babies that has had a really hard time with teething). for about the past 2 months he has been waking up between 4:30-5:30 am. he'd nurse for a few minutes and then fall right back to sleep for a few more hours. thankfully, a couple of weeks ago he finally got back to his normal schedule and is sleeping 12 hours again.
  • speaking of his teeth, the addition of those top 4 teeth has added a whole new challenge to nursing. ouch! 
  • he loves to bang his spoon on his high chair tray
  • he grinds his teeth sometimes. logan used to do this too.
  • he clicks he tongue, which is so fun!
  • he giggles and gives big belly laughs more
  • open and closes his hands when he is agitated and it looks pretty cute and makes us laugh.
  • he does a fake cough and will mimic the noises we make
  • he prefers to play with non baby toys (pens, fruit snack wrappers, hoodie strings)
  • he loves to eat and prefers fruit baby food (i can't say i blame him)
  • he sucks his bottom lip, especially when he gets tired
  • he is reaching for things and getting up on his legs/knees and then falls forward on his stomach
  • still "crowls" (cries/growls)
  • he loves his lovie and seahorse and knows it is time for sleep when he gets the seahorse.
