Easton at 8 Months

Well I guess its that time of the month again....time to blog about how much older my little Sprout is getting.  This little man is the light of my day!  He is so happy all the time and just an all around Joy!  He's always making me smile and laugh.  Hes getting so big and I cant believe that I will be thinking about a 1st birthday party soon....Ive actually already thought of what the theme will be!  AHH (freaking out)!     

Weight: 16 Pounds
Height: 27 inches
Diapers: Size 3
Clothes: Size 6-9 and some 3-6 still fit
Blonde Hair and Blue eyes! (The light in his room makes it look red for some reason)

My little Sprout:
-Loves to clap his hands.  He started this right after he turned 7 months old.  Sometimes when we sing "If you're happy and you know it" he will start clapping.  He's so smart!
-Can eat bananas that are cut up, real cheese puffs, and peas among other adult foods.
-Loves his Gerber puffs and little crunchies! I haven't found a flavor he didn't like.
-Sticks his tongue out and spits.  Its cute!....for now.
-Loves to talk and scream when happy and playing.  He has lots more sounds when he is "talking."  I can hear S, R, and M's instead of just Da Da.  So amazing to sit and just listen to him. 
-Now that E is an expert roller, he sleeps on his tummy alot at night now.
-Moved to fast flow nipples.  He drinks 6-7 oz every 5-6 times a day.  He has a container of fruit with oatmeal, cereal or granola for breakfast and a container of a vegetable for lunch.  Then he has a snack about mid afternoon.  Depending on what they are having for breakfast and lunch at daycare depends on whether or not he eats baby food or adult food at meal times. He liked the avacado he tried too.  I love my good little eater! Keep it up buddy.
-Still only the 2 teeth.
-Great Sleeper!!
-Gets up on his knees and rocks back and forth but has yet to move forward and actually crawl.  However he is very good at crawling backwards.  This frustrates him sometimes.
-I reluctantly lowered his crib mattress all the way to the bottom level. =(  He will be pulling up in no time.  He didn't seem to notice the change.  Boy mommy sure did...
-He never completely got over his 2nd double ear infection.  We went through 10 days of Amoxicillin, 10 days of Omnicef, and 3 Rocephin shots....The Rocephin finally cleared up the pus in his ears but there is still so much fluid that it could turn into another ear infection at any time per Dr. M.  So Easton will be headed to an appointment with an ENT to talk about tubes.   Hopefully this whole process will go smoothly.
Our little Sprout is really growing growing.....
I cant believe you are 8 Months Old!!
