Crew Benjamin: 8 Month Update:

Happy 8 months to our snuggly little guy! 
And oh how it is killing me to not be there with him but instead stuck in the hospital. 
I love you baby and mommy will be home soon!

Crew's personality is really shining and he is still the absolute happiest baby ever! He loves everyone, loves attention, loves being held, talked to, and played with! Big sis is one of his favorite people and he has really developed an attachment to Momma (which let's be honest, it's my favorite!). Crew will be completely fine and happy if I am not around but then the moment he sees me he starts fussing and crying until I pick him up! Oh how I love that little guy! His tight hugs around my neck as he scratches me is my favorite! 

This past month Crew got to see his Aunt Christie & Auntie Shay Shay, celebrated his First St. Patrick's Day, celebrated Daddy's Birthday, finally cut his First Tooth (and has since cut tooth number TWO! Woohoo!), and celebrated his First Easter

It has been one fun month with our little man! He has officially started eating his feet, can move around in a circle on his belly, has done "so big", and has started doing this ridiculously adorable head tilt as if he is acting shy or flirting! He continues to amaze us and makes us oh so happy each and every day!! 

 Crew's Stats:
*Weight: 22lbs
*Height: 29inches
*Diaper Size: Moving into size 3 Pampers Swaddlers this week
*Clothes: 6 months and some 9 months
*Teeth: 2 (bottom)
*Sleep: Bedtime 7PM, wakes up 7AM. Crew sleeps straight through the night with no wake ups unless he is teething/sick. If that is the case he wakes up once around 2-3AM or twice, just depends. Morning nap is around 9AM, he sleeps for about 1-2 hours. Afternoon nap is around 12:30PM and he sleeps 2-3 hours.
*Food: He is still loving it all! Some new things added this past month has been Hummus, Peaches, Pears, yogurt bites, broccoli
*Words: Nothing new but still loves making noises and "talking"! He likes to pant too! haha
*Social: He is still a social/lovable little guy who smiles at everyone he sees! We do Stroller Strides a few days a week, we go to the library for Story Time, and we have playdates with friends! That and all of our visitors who come and stay with us has this little dudes social calendar pretty full!
*Other: Some of his nicknames: Bubs, Bubba, Crew Dude, Goober Pants, Goobs. Crew still loves his baths, diaper changes, and is still extremely ticklish! Bailey has started giving him kisses on his face and I'm not sure how he feels about it. It is one the most hilarious things to watch though! haha! One thing Crew does when he gets so excited is he starts moving his hands and turning his wrists, haha. He doesn't seem close to crawling just yet but he sure can scoot, move, and turn around in a circle when he is on his tummy.

Happy 8 Months bubs! We love you baby boy!
