Happy eight months, sweet boy!
Landon is officially an eight-month-old, and I am absolutely in awe of this fact. He has grown so much in so many ways, and I am in love with his personality. IN. LOVE.
Our sweet boy laughs all.the.time and I never, ever get enough of each and every chuckle and grin. I’m obsessed! So many people have recently commented on how Landon is such a happy baby, and this makes my heart swell. After struggling with the fussiness and screaming fits we dealt with the first few months of Landon’s life, I am seriously overjoyed with the fact that he’s now a smiley, happy, giggling, carefree baby.
Month eight was truly a delight. He helped his cousin celebrate his FIRST BIRTHDAY, he spent lots of quality time with his family, and he played his little heart out! He now army crawls to get around anywhere and everywhere, so he’s officially on the move. And he loves it. Except when he wants to sit up and can’t. He’s great at rolling over and now scooting himself everywhere, but he still can’t pull himself up to a sitting position and it frustrates him more often than not. Now that he sits up very well, he doesn’t like laying for long periods of time unless he’s actually sleeping, so he fusses and yells to get someone’s attention to help him sit up!
Landon had a little phase this month where he’d wake up in the middle of the night for a bottle, but we’re chalking it up to a growth spurt because it ended fairly quickly – for which we were VERY grateful for. However, I cherished the extra cuddles because I know he won’t be this little for long, and it’s also way better than waking every two hours for a bottle like he used to! But other than that phase, he sleeps through the night and definitely enjoys his rest. He eats from a spoon like a champ and still loves his prunes! He weighs 23 pounds and is now 28.5 inches long. Our sweet, healthy, growing boy.
We celebrated Landon’s first Thanksgiving this month, and I was so excited for all the turkey-themed outfits! I mean, how could I not?! The answer: I couldn’t. Obviously. I “almost” screwed it up and forgot to purchase ANY Thanksgiving outfits, but Amazon Prime saved the day and came through for me, thank goodness!
