Lucas Parker ~ 8 months

Compare 7 months HERE!
Well, we are three quarters of the way to the big FIRST birthday. Time is flying by and I can't seem to stop it so I am enjoying every single second of every little moment. I am always saying I want my little baby back but at the same time I love how he interacts with us. He is full of smiles all the time (except when he is sick) and his laugh is beyond adorable! Oh and lets not forget about all the chunky rolls he's got going on! He has also started to reach for us when he wants to be picked up now which of course turns me to mush every time. He now knows that if he reaches for me I will pick him up in a heart beat. I can't deny this kid anything, ha!

There was no 8m check up but at his sick visit Monday he was 21 lbs 12 oz. He is sitting up great now and FINALLY got his first tooth last Thursday. He loves to play on the floor more then his jumper lately. He is not crawling but will roll and turn to get to what he wants. He is in 12 month clothes and still wearing size 3 diapers. He eats 3 solid meals a day and around 22oz of milk. Now that I am done pumping he gets 16oz of BM from my frozen stash and 6 oz of formula. I mix it all together before I make his bottles so I know each bottle has the same amount of formula in it. I am a little OCD about how his bottles are made, can you tell!?

The poor guy has been sick all week. I was so worried it was the flu again or RSV but all the tests came back negative. Apparently if you have type B flu once, you can't get it again so YAY for that. He was wheezy (all our kids get like that when they are sick) so we have been doing breathing treatments, oral steroids and antibiotics since Monday. Let me tell you, this kid HATES taking medicine. There is medicine, snot, and big alligator tears going every where when it is time to take them. He did do really well with it tonight though, so maybe he is starting to like it ... maybe!

Here are his 8 month pictures...he was not really into smiling much!

By far my most favorite picture of him!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

PS Don't forget about the Kitchenaid Shopping Spree giveaway!!

He is such a doll baby, sorry he has been sick. Hope it goes away!

What a handsome boy! Being sick is no fun. So glad it wasn't RSV. We battled that when my little guy was 2 weeks old and had to be hospitalized. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
