Hank is 8 Months Old

Hank is currently: 8 months old! I honestly cannot believe how quickly time has been flying by. He's growing up so fast and just into everything all the time!

Weight: Unsure. Next checkup is at 9 months.

Clothing: He's in 6-9 and 6-12 month clothes. To be honest, I've been pretty lazy and trying to still get some use out of his 3-6 month pants and onesies that are way too short. I have to go through his box of clothes and get the next size prepped.

Nicknames: Hank already is a nickname, but we also call him little guy and big boy. I also catch myself calling him handsome on a regular basis, because, obviously.

Health/Diet: He still nurses several times a day and takes breastmilk bottles while I'm at work. He LOVES eating real foods. He gets really excited and seems to enjoy the task of using those fine motor skills to pick up little morsels. His favorite foods include eggs, avocado, puffs. He seems to dislike many of the packets I've been sending him lately, which is kind of disappointing.

Sleep: He is on a pretty regular sleep schedule. He goes down at 8pm and then wakes up at 11:30pm and then again at around 2 or 3am. I really wish he would sleep more at night, but at least his sleep schedule is pretty predictable.

Milestones: He is crawling all over the place and moving SO FAST. He is also trying to pull himself up onto literally anything he can. He's a short ways away from standing in his crib. We really need to get on the whole child proofing thing a bit more.

Likes: His binkie, playing with Pepper's water dish, sticking his hands and feet in his mouth, crawling, Patsy's Peppa Pig toys, nursing with mom.

Dislikes: Loud noises, being hungry, being cold
