8 Months

So Garrett is 8 months old…..already. It seems like yesterday he looked like this, and its hard to believe that a little over a year ago we had just picked out his name. It’s bittersweet that our baby is so quickly becoming a little person, but it’s so much fun watching him learn and grow every day.

February was a very busy month for us.

Garrett went swimming to the pool

Flew to Florida to visit Grandma and Grandpa Brewton

And got his first cold.

 Although that was no fun for any of us, I have to say I am pleased that we made it through 8 whole months without so much as a runny nose!

We don’t go back to the Dr.’s until the end of the month so I don’t have any offical stats right now, but if I had to guess, I would say Garrett is just over 19 lbs and around 31″ long.

He’s wearing 9-12 month clothes

Size 5 shoes!! (which is very big for an 8 month old)

He easily maneuvers from his belly to a sitting or crawling position and vice versa

Is very mobile and perfectly capable of getting up on all fours and taking one or two movements forward

but realizes that he can get to where he wants to go much faster if he crawls with his belly on the ground

He enjoys being outside

as long as he is not sitting directly on the grass

He sleeps at least 9 hours at a time

Eats 3 solid meals a day (mostly pureed, but he’s starting to get the hang of finger foods) and takes 3-4 bottles a day

Loves playing with Daddy (even when he’s under the weather)

Bathtime in the big tub

and is the best ever at making people smile.

We love you so much Monkey!!

  1. Aw, G is becoming such a big little man! …did that make any sense? 😉 What a cutie!

  2. Aw, he’s getting so big. He doesn’t like the grass? That is funny. I love the first picture he’s looking at you like what mom? I can’t believe they’ll be one soon; it’s going by too fast but they are going to be sooo fun this summer!

  3. Look at this precious boy! He is so photogenic with his big blue eyes and his little smile! Love this post!
