Cohen ::8 months::

How is it that I have an 8 month old? Time has FLOWN. 
Mr. Cohen - you are so much fun! You have the prettiest eyes and the best little smile. As long as you have someone's attention, you are the happiest little boy! Other than that, you can be a bit dramatic! :) We still love you, though, sweet boy!
 - You weigh about 14.5 lbs.  You are still our little peanut!
- You wear some 0-3 stuff, especially in pants and some 3-6 months though most of it is big.  I actually just put some newborn shorts on you the other day and they fit you perfect! I have put you in a few 6-9 month things for summer, and while they are big, they work.
- You wear a size 2 shoe, though shoes are hard to put on you because you love to wrinkle your toes.
 -You wear a size 2 diaper.
- You still nurse frequently, around every 2 1/2 hours or so. If we can keep you entertained long enough, sometimes you'll go around 4 hours.
- You take about 3 naps a day. One in the morning for around an hour or 1 1/2 hours and then an afternoon nap for around 1-2 hours and a small evening nap, normally around 1/2 hour.
- You sleep around 11 hours at night. You normally go to sleep around 8:30 and sleep until 7:30 ish.

 - You are a mover.  You are still army crawling but get up on your hands and knees and love to rock.  You may crawl for just a little bit, but you know it is much faster to army crawl.  
- You are pulling up on everything you can now.  On Saturday, you pulled up on the couch for the first time.  And now anything you can climb on, you are all for trying!
- No babbling out of you yet.  I'm still non-patiently waiting for a mama sound. I'll even take a dada sound! :)

 - You are not a huge fan of food.  You LOVE fruits but that is about it!  In between bites of fruit we can squeeze in a veggie but you make a yucky face and try to rub your hands on your mouth to get it out! You eat bananas, applesauce, peaches, pears, oranges, yogurt, sweet potato, green beans, squash, carrots, refried beans.  You could eat fruit and yogurt all day! Not so much for the other stuff!
- You have figured out your pincher grasp quite yet, but you are working on it. You still figure out a way to get the puffs in your mouth! :)
 - You are "kinda" clapping. You do this arm thing whenever we clap, which makes me believe you are imitating us!
- You love to give gummy kisses but most end with you smacking our faces with your hands.
- You have a total of 6 teeth, I believe. I haven't looked for a while, but you have been chewing on your fingers quite a bit.
 - Personality wise, you love to be held, talked to, flirted with, etc.  You are a ham!  You also LOVE your momma. If you think I am going to set you down, you squeeze my neck and grab on to my shirt and won't let go! 
- If we are not doing any of the above, you are most likely whining.  You want someone to be paying attention to you all the time.  You seem to get bored easily!
- You aren't having to many issues with your skin anymore, which is nice. 

 Things you love:
-Bath time
- Your sister
- Being outside
- Going for walks
- Blocks
- Being held

 Happy 8 months, sweet boy! We love you!
