Jackson's (late) 8 Month Update!

Well my baby went and turned 8 months old!

Weight/Length: 20.2lbs, 27inches
Clothing Size: about half and half between 6-9/9mo and 12mo, just depending on the brand
Diaper Size:  Size 3
Feeding: Breastfeeding- still going great, nurses about 6 times in a 24hr period (those are good 5-10min sessions) and then occasionally he'll nurse a bit more here & there (more like snacks/comfort nursing, just a couple min)  He usually nurses when he wakes up in the morning, before his naps, once in the evening if he only takes 2 naps, and then before bed, and then 1 or 2 times at night.
Solids- usually eats 3 meals a day. He has mastered self-feeding so we are giving him lots more table food now. Usually I'll just cut up some pieces of whatever we are having.  He also gets purées still too depending on what is most convenient.
Milestones: Sitting up great, can go from sitting to his belly and then can roll both ways. He hasn't started crawling yet. Babbling TONS more, he has said a few words but that happened after he turned 8mo so I'll save that for the next update :). Has a very strong object permanence now. Gets upset if you take a toy away from him, he's fascinated by the dogs, strings, and our drink cups. Still toothless!
Sleep: As of when he turned 8mo it was pretty good. Going to bed around 8pm and waking twice. (Usually midnight ish and that's when he will join us in our bed) and again around 4 (to nurse though sometimes he nurses when he wakes around midnight too). He's up for the day usually between 6:30 and 7.
Likes/Dislikes:  He is really liking pets/animals (especially our dogs), strings (like shoelaces or the straps on his high chair) and our iPhones. He also still likes the jumperoo. He loves to swing at the park and is a big fan of the water!  Dislikes include having something cool taken away from him and being alone.
