We’re officially in month 8 and I’m LATE! Technically Calvin was 8 months back on Tuesday. He is getting HUGE and turning into quite the crazy guy. The words I would use to describe him now are: determined, independent, outgoing, extroverted, observant, energetic, silly & CUTE!!! Duh.
Calvin has 1 tooth, he is learning to crawl but instead of pushing off his knees/feet he likes to go up into a plank/downward facing dog position. I told Craig I think he might go from army crawling to walking. He can say many words and is very vocal, although he probably doesn’t know he is saying them (mama, dada, hi.)
He is in getting very heavy so we bought a larger convertible carseat for my car and we keep the infant carrier in Dad’s since it’s almost impossible to carry him in the seat any longer. He is in size 4 diapers, and he has to wear overnight diapers during the night because this child. pees. so. much. He kept waking up with pee all down his front. TMI. He is in 9month+ clothing and is making my arms very strong – at least that’s what I tell myself!
He gives the sweetest hugs, “kisses”, and lunges into my arms when he sees me after work. Lastly, no, we are still not sleeping through the night. He is hit or miss – some nights are 8pm-630am and others he’s up at 12pm, 3am, 5am, etc. As soon as we were going to start sleep training, he started teething hard core …SO TBD on this. We keep hoping he’ll magically start sleeping through consistently, but we’ll see. Who has done sleep training?
Tonight we are heading to a Halloween party and Calvin is staying with his first babysitter outside of daycare & family – let’s hope he decides to be a little angel
