I feel like once your baby is 8 months old, they are starting to slip out of the squishy baby stage. We are at 8 months but Bryken still is pretty squishy!
You can probably tell from the pictures that Bryken is getting tired of having his picture taken on that blanket. Only 17 more weeks to go! I just wanted to get a picture of him every week for the first year to see how much he has changed.
Bryken has changed a lot this past month. He is such a funny kid. With how early he rolled over, I thought for sure he would be crawling by the time he was six months old. He really has no interest in it. He's pretty happy and content to stay on his blanket and play with his toys. He can turn around and roll over but he hasn't mastered moving forward at all. I'm pretty happy that he hasn't figured it out yet.
I wouldn't be surprised if he just started walking and skipped crawling. He loves to stand and he is so strong.
He's such a cheese ball. I had to get a picture of the tongue too.
He is pretty content on the floor for a little while but Bryken still loves to be held so I have very limited amounts of time that I can get things done.
Luckily I have Averie. She is the best big sister ever. She plays with Bryken constantly and is always picking him up when he is sad. I'm constantly yelling, "Be careful! Don't drop him!" It freaks me out so bad to have her pick him up, but she loves him so much, it's hard to be mad.
I love that at 8 months Bryken still loves his swing. Averie never liked the swing so I am glad we are getting good use out of this one!
Bryken has never been as good of a sleeper as his sister was, but we are finally making progress this month. He has had a few nights where he has slept the entire night which is amazing. He is so cute when we put him down. He just grabs his blanket and pulls it up to his face, rolls to his side and falls asleep.
He has started sleeping on his tummy with his little bum up in the air.
I am starting to wean Bryken from breast feeding because work has not helped me keep my supply up. He is finally taking a bottle better from me, but he is so different than most babies. He never really takes more than 4 ounces. Sometimes he will take 6 and others he will take only 2. It drives me crazy because I never know how much formula to mix up. I feel like I'm constantly wasting it.
I couldn't pick a favorite of all these. His big dimple smile is my favorite.
One of the new things Bryken is doing this month is putting his binkie in his mouth himself. He sure loves his binkie and he always is pulling it in and out of his mouth. Now if he could just figure out how to hold a bottle!
I love this sweet boy of mine and am enjoying all the baby snuggles I can get while they last!
