On March 5th Carson turned 8 months old! I am a little behind on posts and measurements, and Carson has hit new milestones just since his 8 month birthday last week! This kid is growing up way to fast!
Carson’s big milestone this month was learning how to crawl!!! He is all over the place now. He will crawl across the entire house without stopping and is always very determined in reaching his destination. His new big thing is pulling up on furniture, including when he is in his crib. My mom and I lowered the crib yesterday because of this! In fact, Carson is peering at me from over his crib as I type this :) He can also “walk” around furniture when holding onto it. My mom thinks he’ll be walking by the time her and my dad visit in mid-May. Slow down Carson!!!! (I do take solace in the fact that Carson will still cuddle up with me and fall asleep in my arms, so he still has sweet baby qualities).
Carson did not have a doctor’s appointment this month, so we had to once again do our own measurements. His next appointment isn’t until April 19th (we’ll be out of town on his 9 month birthday). I can’t wait to know his actual measurements since mine are always way off!!!
Weight: 18 lbs 6.4 oz (10-25th percentile)…he was 17 lbs 12 oz last month. I think all that crawling has made him lose some baby chub!
Length: 27 inches (10-25th percentile)…he grew half an inch!
Head size: No head measurement this month.
Here are some pics of the super cute
