Shrinking Tiger ~ 8 Months

July flew right past and we have already made it to August! Phew! Another month brings another picture of the Incredible Shrinking Tiger!


8 Months Old:

Changes since last month:

  • He is finally siting up all on his own, unassisted.
  • He wants to move even more; he rolls across the room, and he scoots across the floor on his left side, dragging with his right arm. He is trying to crawl, but gets his arms going faster than his legs so he usually ends up on his tummy/side.
  • He is starting to wear 18 month clothing. It’s hard to believe he’s already outgrowing some 12 month clothes! That’s 3 sizes over the summer!

Other things about Little D:

  • He loves to smile for the camera. It’s hard to capture him doing everyday type of things because as soon as I pull the camera out, he poses and smiles. So much for the candid pictures — I love it!
  • He loves his walker but gets frustrated with our small house with so many different surfaces. He tries so hard to follow Miss M around the house.
  • His cheeks and his thighs get the most attention. He likes to pose on his side, propped up on his elbow, showing off his thighs. (I really need a photo of this!)
  • Since he rejected bottles, he is learning to drink water from a sippy cup, and finally is getting the hang of it.
  • He dislikes diaper changes. He squirms and flips over and tries to crawl away. He also does the same thing when I change his clothes.
  • He is very friendly and will let anyone hold him.
  • He loves to pull hair and earrings, except for mine which he doesn’t ever touch. His favorite is Miss M’s hair.
  • He loves his feet. When I’m feeding him he often grabs one of his feet and holds it.
  • People are amazed at his hair and say it looks like I give him a buzz cut. (I’ve never trimmed his hair.)
  • He loves to ride in his stroller and go places. It doesn’t seem to matter where we go, as long as we are going somewhere.
  • He loves to use binkies as chew toys.
