Mommy Diary Take Two: 8 Months

August 20, 2014

Dear Asher-

This month has been full of ups and downs for you. Several new teeth, tummy troubles, growth spurt, and development frustrations have all happened in such a short period of time. You're up to six teeth now, the four center ones and your right upper incisor and left lower incisor. You've outgrown all 18 month clothes, despite my trying desperately to squeeze a few more weeks out of them. I had to buy 24-month sized clothes because your brother skipped that size entirely but you're so much broader than he was you need them! We got some contaminated food on vacation and it's taken you almost the whole month for your tummy to feel better; we even broke down and brought you to the specialist and he found a corn allergy (yikes!). Tummy plus new teeth meant a lot of nursing again, but you are still really enjoying food--especially the lovely summer watermelon and fresh prunes we have been buying. I still get daily comments on your red hair and honestly honey-bear, I (too) can hardly believe you are such a red head! You are gorgeous.  So much of your daddy in your smiles and sweet faces, but also a little resemblance to your brother (and I) is coming through. If you would just crawl, for goodness sake, this month would have been lots easier. You get so mad! You hold your arms out and grunt and flex--just like The Hulk! It's funny but not, all simultaneously. You're so ready to move! 

Love, 
Momma
