My ray of sunshine is 8 months old today! I’m not 100% sure on his height or weight because he hasn’t had any doctor appointments recently, but I did just measure him with my tape measurer and he’s about 32” long 😱 and my guess for his weight is 22lbs. It’s very obvious Asher’s a big boy. He wears 18m clothing which breaks my mama heart because he looks like a freakin’ toddler and he isn’t even 1 yet, but also makes me very proud because I’m doing something right 🤱🏻🥦🥔🥕🍌🥑🥭. This is the stage where his personality is coming out! Asher has always been the happiest, most content baby, but now he’s beginning to show other emotions like sadness, frustration, anger, and even stubbornness through his body language and attitude. It’s all normal and it’s his way of communicating, but I certainly didn’t expect attitude until he was at least 2! It’s quite entertaining and it makes me laugh... for now lol. Asher FINALLY says “mama” 💓 although he only says it when he’s sad/mad and definitely not on command lol. He recently learned how to wave 👋🏻 and I’ve been teaching him some basic sign language so he knows some manners and I can understand him better when it comes to eating. Asher knows how to push himself up to his knees, but no crawling yet. Maybe he’ll skip crawling and go straight to walking 😯. He learned how to stand up on his own and that’s huge! Both his top central incisors are cutting through which means he’ll have SIX teeth before he’s 9 months old. Me every time I nurse him since he’s gotten teeth: 🥴. Gahh, my boy’s growing so fast and learning so much! He’s my favorite person in the entire world and I’m so grateful to be his mami. Happy 8 months, my son.
