My life as a mommy :)

7 and 8 Months! :)

Konnor, you turned 8 months old on Christmas Eve but mommy is bad at blogging and skipped two whole monthly post.

You have learned and changed so much in the past two months. It's so unbelievable! You also had many firsts and got to experience many new things! I just wanna say how amazing of a baby that you are and I'm so lucky to be your mommy!

Oh boy, where do I begin on what all you have learned and achieved ? You can officially crawl now! And oh goodness, you crawl fast! Anything you see that you want, you are determined to get it right then! You started off by rocking back and forth then one day you just seemed to get it! You can also pull up on anything and stand there. You have ventured to holding on with one hand which has caused many boo-boos already and many tears from mommy! You are walking across the couch but are to scared to let go or to use your walking toy. I know one day you'll just let go and run for it just like with crawling.

You have changed a good bit in this department too and took mommy for a whirlwind. You are an eater and that's never changed but what you want to eat is the problem. You take 6oz of Similac Sensitive every 2-2 1/2 hours. You were taking baby food 3 times a day and a snack in between when you decided that baby food was just gross and you wanted table food. I struggled with this because me and daddy don't really eat that healthy and we tried to bump it up for you. I started making you whole grain muffins in the morning for breakfast. Veggies like carrots, peas, green beans or potatoes for lunch and then supper we add meat, veggies and a banana. Thankfully, yesterday you let me feed you some baby food and that makes mommy feel better because then I know you are eating right.

This one kinda feels like a joke. If there was a club for sleep haters, I'm more than positive you would be the president. You wake up for the day around 6-6:30 am as my extremely happy baby. I love those morning goggles from you :) you take your first nap around 11 am and sleep till about 1 pm. Then another nap around 4pm till about 4:30-5. Then bedtime comes about 8:30 now. You hate to be rocked so we just lay you down beside us and let you play yourself to sleep in the bed. You are still waking up atleast 3-4 times a night. You still sleep in mommy and daddy's bed but we are going to work on that this week because you sir are a bed hog! LOL

You are a big boy! You are somewhere around 21 pounds and about 28-29 inches long. You wear 6-12 clothes and some 12 months. You are in a size 3 diaper but I may move you up soon because you seem to be peeing through your diaper alot. You have a little cold now. You have a semi- bad cough but an awfully runny nose. You act fine during the day but its nighttime that seems to be where the runny nose part bothers you. I'm so thankful you got the flu shot because alabama has the most reported flu cases. Praying you don't get it!

You are such a happy baby and are very happy to please. There is not much that makes you mad, other than mommy not letting you get in the tree. You LOVE taking big boy baths because of all your bath toys and the washcloth. You could play in there forever. Cheerios are your favorite snack and your paci is your best friend. You got lots of new toys for Christmas and your wagon and the LOL Elmo are probably your favorite. You love to bang everything on the table and laugh and peek-a-boo is so funny to you. You say "hi" all the time and "mama" when you are upset. Also, you love your new big boy carseat :)

Overall, your the best baby ever! You make everyone smile that you see and everyone falls in love with your red hair and blue eyes. I never knew I could love someone as much as I love you. Me and you are always together and you make me the happiest mommy ever! I love you Konnor Bryant!

His age is definitely one of my favorites! Crawling is so much fun and they are always discovering new things! He is such a handsome little guy!
