Jude turned 8 months old on May 8. In the past month Jude got a cold, then a runny nose that lasted two weeks which led to a double ear infection. He was acting so fussy around the time of the ear infection and I saw him rub each ear one time- something I'd never seen him do. I decided to take him into the doctor just in case. I'd never taken him for anything more than checkups. He had an infection in both ears and was put on antibiotics. After about 3 days he was back to his normal self.
We went swimming again and he liked it a lot more.
Jude says mamama, dadada, bababa and nanana. I also heard him copy me and say 'nigh-nigh' for night-night.
He barks like a dog when he sees dogs or his puppy book, but it sounds like a high squeal.
He smacks his lips before eating something yummy.
He likes all food he's tried except avocado. Still deciding on that one.
He pushes his arms up, ready to crawl, but ends up army crawling everywhere.
Still loves drinking out of a straw.
His favorite food is chunks of apricot from his grandparent's tree.
He weighs 19 pounds and is 28 1/4 inches long.
He is still a happy boy, but has definitely gotten more attached to me and wants to be held more than ever before. He sleeps 12-13 hours a night and takes 2 hour and a half naps- one at around 9am and one around 2pm.
He is still nursing 3-4 times a day and loves eating 'big people' food.
We love watching him grow and learn!
