I mainly do these monthly updates so I can remember what they were doing at this stage and for future knowledge when we have more babies. Feel free to skip on down to the photos
At 8 months, Jackson can sit up, sit up from the crawling position, and get down to crawling from sitting. He is mainly army crawling everywhere, but will get up on hands and knees and then throws himself forward. He is trying to pull up, but that is mainly on me. He is still pretty shaky. He has two teeth still and is nursing 4 times a day. He sleeps from 8-6:30 and eats and then back down until 8. He is taking 2-3 naps a day, depending on how long they are.
This past weekend his eyes had been goopy and his nose was really runny. I took him into the doctor yesterday afternoon and the doctor said he has pink eye!! Justin took off work this week to help with VBS at our church. I took Jackson to VBS yesterday (oops) not knowing he had pink eye because I am suppose to be taking photos. We are staying home today, but he will be good to go back tomorrow. So far no one else in our family has gotten it. Jackson eyes look completely clear today. The eye drops they gave him are awesome!
Oh and when I took him to the doctor yesterday, he weighed 18 pounds, 6 ounces.
Here are some photos I took of him last week for his 8 month photos
Love this happy little guy!
