At 8 months you are approximately 18 1/2 pounds and 26 3/4 inches (I think the nurse-in-training measured your length wrong, but we'll go with it). You hair is coming in nicely, you are eating everything in sight, and you make sure to let us know when you need more attention (that's a positive way to say you've started the whining phase) :) You are still a jolly jumper and you spent a good part of the month happily clapping your hands to "if you're happy and you know it." You are still content to sit, but you are reaching and trying to inch towards objects around you, so I don't think it will be long before you take off. At the end of the month you really started chatting - "ba ba ba ba" - it's totally adorable. Your brother and sister were so surprised and excited to hear you "talk." When you are excited, every limb of your body starts moving, we love it. You are such a joy.
You all are my life.
Love you forever,
