Nick Jay is 8 months old! Well, he was 8 months old over a week ago but I am sure he won't mind that his blog post is a touch late. At least the pics were taken back on the 7th. Even though he is experiencing a bit of sleep regression, and is surely teething, he is still our sweet, smiley boy. Just love him. :)
Size: Still wearing 12 month and 18 month clothing. His little dinosaur slippers (an Alex hand-me-down) keep slipping off his feet, so I wonder if I need to try the bigger ones? Hmm.
Likes: Eating soft finger foods (more below), scooting everywhere, pulling brother's hair, sitting up, biting down on anything hard, trying to eat grass, Bailey.
Dislikes: Having his nose cleaned (still), when he is removed from the bathtub, getting teeth. Oh, and sleeping through the night, apparently.
Eating: Nick LOVES eating little bits of food! I let him start having puffs and small bits of banana and avocado the day before he turned 8 months and he just loves them. Bailey likes it too, since Nick misses his mouth a lot (and they end up on the floor).
Sleeping: Well...for a few weeks now Nick has been waking up very unhappy at least once per night. I guess it started a little before we all got colds? Sometimes it's midnight, sometimes 2:00, or 4:30. But always at least once. I have been able to count on him taking a good afternoon nap for awhile now, but the past four days he has just refused and been so sad. I am convinced he's getting more teeth, although I can't tell where. He wants to bite down on EVERYTHING. He bit my shoulder! Poor kiddo. I drove them around today so he would sleep. (Poor Alex couldn't fall asleep for his nap because Nick was howling down the hall.)

|This isn't the best picture but I had to include it, because Nick is always doing THIS! I call it his "yogalates" and it cracks me up. Always just like this.|
