Henry- 8 months

Handsome Henry boy is 8 months old!!! Here's a quick update:
  • Started sleeping through the night last week! Yippee! Both girls started sleeping through the night at 3 months so this feels like a long time coming. We start our bedtime routine at 6:30pm so he goes down at about 7pm and wakes up at 6:45-7am. Takes 2-2 hour naps. 
  • Crawling like crazy! He's everywhere! And into everything! He started pulling himself up standing in the crib last week but now he's pulling himself up on everything. He is so proud of himself! I love it!
  • Loves to eat! He is loving all table foods. Although he doesn't have a pincher grasp yet so he can't feed himself...although he's getting there. And I try to let him self feed some bigger stuff too but it makes me nervous. So there's a lot of cutting little pieces and feeding them to him. Although just this week he decided a spoon just might be okay. It's such an exciting new thing. And I love how much he loves it! We've started using the "more" and "all done sign" but for now Henry has this lovely uh-uh-uh sound he makes when we wants more. Oh boy!
  • He likes to eat food whenever we have meals so he eats 3 food meals a day and then is still nursing 6 times per day. 
  • He's really ticklish and laughs so much especially when you tickle him on his neck. 
  • Loves touch and feel books and books with flaps and mirrors. Favorite is still Baby Peek-a-boo.
  • Has lots of fun baby toys that he enjoys playing with but I'm afraid is more often than not found carrying a princess, Barbie or My Little Pony in his hands.  Also loves toys that light up and make noise. He especially loves this wand of the girls that lights up and has a rubbery end on it. He also has figured out how to pull out the springy door stop in his room and it might just be his favorite toy!
  • Loves to be outside, go on walks and swing next to his sisters in the backyard. 
  • Millie has given him a new approved nickname, "Cute little White Rabbit!" Since he was the White Rabbit for Halloween. 
  • His hair continues to be strawberry blonde. I thought he'd grow out of it. It definitely looks more red in certain light. It will be fun to see how it looks as time marches on.
It is sure fun watching Henry grow up! Although it is certainly happening too fast! He is such a sweet, happy boy!
