Grayson James: 8 Month Update

October 29, 2018

My baby turned 8 MONTHS OLD on October 28, 2018! He is so much fun, so social, loving, and hilarious. He is truly my best friend, and is showing me his personality every single day. Here are some of the milestones of Grayson this past month:

  • He’s awake longer! I love this, because we can actually do more things. I’m still a slave to his sleep schedule, but it’s much easier to be flexible now that he can be awake 3-4 hours.
  • LOVES FOOD. He’d easily rather eat solids than drink milk! Banana, oranges, chicken thighs, spaghetti, broccoli, sweet potato, pancakes, and yogurt are some of the faves.
  • He’s almost always so, so happy. Constantly smiling – it makes my heart melt.
  • He’s actually hilarious. Yes, an 8-month-old can be hilarious. I crack up constantly.
  • Loves people and loves socializing. Definitely a little bit different than myself in this department, it just seems as if he is an extrovert right now (or will be in the future).
  • Loves playing and seeing new sights. We’ve been to the zoo, pumpkin patch, children’s museum, he loved it all. He loves exploring and learning new things!
  • OBSESSED with standing and walking. I swear he will be walking in the next few months. It’s all he wants to do (currently with someone’s help of course).
  • On 2 naps a day now and sleeping pretty great at night. Sometimes STTN, sometimes waking once.
  • The dogs are his favorite. He thinks they are the funniest creatures! If he’s fussy, I just bring Tren and Blue over and he immediately cheers up.
  • HE SAID MAMA ON OCTOBER 22. HIS FIRST WORD!!!!!!!!! I DIED. YEP.
  • Leap 6 he’s more lovey but also gets upset super fast over small things.
  • He loves attention. He will fake cough or scream if he needs it.
  • He gives HUGS. It’s the best thing in the entire world.
  • He also gives super wet, slobbery kisses. My favorite.
  • He smacks his lips – we are unsure if he’s trying to kiss or when it’s when he wants to eat. I think both.
  • He literally does a plank and tries to stand on his own. He also is still army crawling and is so close to crawling on his knees.
