Baby Update: Three Months - Eight Months

Time for a baby update! I haven't done one since my little guy was TWO months old... and now he is NINE months old! Seriously, where has the time gone?!

I think I say this on every baby update post... but time goes by so fast! It seems like just yesterday, he was a teeny, tiny newborn. Now, he is starting to look and act like a little boy, and his sweet personality is really shining through.

Since I missed so many baby update posts due to website complications, I am just going to give a little overview of months 3 to 8. I will do a 9 month baby update after our wellness check with his pediatrician next week!

Lincoln sleeps 7-9 hours at night consistently. He is still in the bassinet in our room.

Sleep: 
We moved Lincoln to his own crib this month, and he sleeps 7-10 hours at night. He goes down around 10:00pm.

Doing one activity for too long (He gets bored pretty easily)


SIX MONTHS:

Height: 29.4 inches Weight: 18 lbs. 8 oz.

Sleep: 
Lincoln is sleeping through the night in the crib in his room. He goes down around 9:30/10:00pm and sleeps until at least 6:00am.

Likes: 
Lincoln loves sucking on two fingers, jumping in his jumper, and putting everything in his mouth.

Dislikes: 
Not getting what he wants. He loves to throw little tantrums when he can't hold the tv remote or my cell phone.

Lincoln started rolling from his back to his tummy this month! He also sits up on his own. 


SEVEN MONTHS:

Long naps

EIGHT MONTHS:

Height: Didn't measure this month Weight: 20 lbs. 4 oz.

Sleep: 
Still sleeping about 8-11 hours at night. He likes the sound of his air purifier when he sleeps, so we bring it whenever we travel overnight!

Likes: 
Lincoln loves kitchen utensils, dog bones, crawling, sucking on two fingers, and flapping his arms when he's excited.

Dislikes:
Lincoln HATES having things taken away, being set down, and getting his nose picked.

Lincoln got his first tooth this month and he started saying "dada" He also went swimming for the first time and LOVED it!

Overall, he is just AMAZING. He has been such an easy baby and we are just having a blast together.  Every day gets more and more fun, and I can't believe he is going to be ONE in just a few months!

That's it for now! Come back at the end of the week for a new FRIDAY FAVORITES post!

Simply, Chelsea
