8 Months

Dearest Perron,

How can you already be 2/3 of a year old?  Whenever someone ask me how old my baby is, I am shocked when I reply 8 months old.  You are getting so big and strong and we are so proud of you.  You have had a great month and are such a cute, sweet baby.  You weigh 14 lbs. 9.5 ozs.  You are wearing 6 month clothes in your pajamas and you have officially grown out of all of your 0-3 months clothes.  Mommy is going to have to go shopping this weekend because you barely have any clothes that fits you.  And you definitely need clothes start daycare on April 5th.  I can't believe it is already time for you to start school.  Mommy is nervous, but I am hopeful that you will like it.  I am hoping that you will like being around all of the other babies.  I am also hoping that you will decide that you like napping at daycare too.  You are doing a tiny bit better in that department and will take at least two one hour naps a day.  Still not great but it is better than 35 minute naps.  You definitely sleep better for Grandma than you do for mommy.

You are a great eater and have not turned your nose up at a single thing we have given you.  You have gotten great at the sippy cup and can now hold it, tip it up high enough, and figure out how to suck all at one time.  We are really proud of you.  You are sleeping about 10 hours at night.  We put you down in bed at night and you are able to put yourself to sleep without crying.  You usually stay up for at least 30 minutes, talking to yourself and playing.  You are still waking up some nights between 4 and 5, but we hope you will grow out of that soon.  I think you are doing that because you have cut your second tooth.  I finally got a glimpse of it tonight when you were in the bath.  Hopefully now that it has broken through your little gum, it will not hurt as bad.

You have started swim classes and you absolutely love them.  You love to splash around and look at all the other babies in your class.  You can sit up so well all by yourself now.  Your new favorite toy is your musical table that your daddy's cousin's family got you for Christmas.  You love to make the music play and then shake your head like you are dancing.  You are still obssessed with your jump-a-roo and will bounce around in there forever.  You LOVE your doggie, McKenzie, and will do just about anything you can think of to try and get her attention.  Whenever she is in the room you laugh and shriek and throw yourself all around.  Unfortunately, she is not ready to reciprocate those feelings yet, but I know that one day she will.

You are such a precious little boy and we love you so much.  It gets harder and harder each day to leave you when I have to go to work.  You continue to be the light of our lives.

We love you very much,

Mommy and Daddy
