Mother of the Year

... I am not. Eli was 8 months old on Monday. We have yet to take pictures. We are just so freakin busy and Eli goes to bed at like 6:30 lately and there just isn't time! But I will update with some fun facts about 8 months!

-FINALLY regularly sleeping through the night. This is amazing! I feel refreshed and just better overall about this.
-around 25lbs... STILL a big boy
-eats 4 times a day, 7oz at a time
-Loves to drink water out of a sippy cup. We finally found one that works well for him!
-eating solids well. 2 meals a day and a snack. Has tried rice, chicken, peas, carrots, sweet potato fries and bananas (real food)
-almost crawling. He is scooting everywhere and crawls for about 2 steps before he falls on his tummy and scoots. he will be there soon.
-Babbling a lot more
-Has started to hold his bottle on his own
-Moves ALL over the crib at night. I need to get some good pictures because they are hilarious
-can have a little bit of separation anxiety depending on his mood and the day.
-Loves when we sing "Old McDonald" and "Pattycake". I need to learn more to up my song repertoire. Those two get old fast haha.

I promise pictures soon!
