HARRISON AT 8 MONTHS


Harry turned eight months old this week. 8 months old!!! I have no idea how that happened, this year has just flown by. I can't believe there's less than 100 days until Christmas, it only feels like last Christmas was a few months ago to me. It's crazy. I feel like Harry is growing so quickly and he's going to be one before I know it, which makes me sad as the newborn stage has gone by so fast this time round seeing as he's my last baby I just want to take it all in as remember every single moment. 

This month Harry is eating much more and has tried more varied foods such as pasta, noodles, different fruit and vegetables, croissants, cheese, fish fingers and meats. He won't eat pureed food anymore he much prefers feeding himself so for the past couple of months we've been doing baby led weaning instead which has been going really well. I'll do a post on that soon. 

I have no idea how much he weighs as he hasn't been weighed in a few months, I should take him along to see the health visitor soon. He is now in 6-9 month clothing and some of the tops are too small for him so I need to buy some more 9-12 month soon. He's still in a lot of 3-6 on the bottom though as he has a small waist. He's also in size 4 nappies. His hair has grown so fast! I think he has more hair now than Amelia did at 14 months! It seems to be going a little lighter too although it does look slightly reddish in these photos due to the light it's more of a mousey brown colour in real life. It's still pretty straight too,  I wonder if it will end up looking like Amelia's! 

His sleep is pretty much the same as last month. He sleeps through most nights although he has started going down earlier now as he's dropped his afternoon nap. He tend to have one nap a day between 11-1pm depending on when we pick Amelia up from school as her times differ on different days. He will then usually go down around 7 or 8pm and sometimes will wake for a bottle around 11pm or 12am but most nights he will sleep through and occasionally wake at 5 or 6 for a bottle then go back to sleep until 8am when I usually have to wake him up so we can take Amelia to school. I have no idea how I got so lucky with Harry and his sleep compared to how Amelia used to be I am so grateful! 

He now has 4 teeth (two top and two bottom) and another two are coming through at the top which I think have made him a bit grumpy the past few days. He's never had any problems with his teeth before and never complains or has red cheeks. But the past couple of nights his temp has been as high as 40 degrees and he's had red cheeks. Although he's not been trying to chew on anything and he does calm down eventually and go to sleep, so may it wasn't his teeth I don't know. He's never been a whingy baby and will very rarely cry so it's so unlike him. 

It's been nice to spend some one on one time with him whilst Amelia has started school and we enjoy our mornings playing or going on little errands together before we go and collect her and then all have lunch together. I have loved watching their relationship this month and can see it's stronger than ever. The way Harry looks at her and the way she is so protective over him is so sweet. 

Just four more months until he turns one! This has got to be one of the quickest years of my life! So much has happened, so much has changed but I wouldn't change it for the world! I can't wait to see how much Harry changes in the next month.

  1. Yikes they really do grow up so fast! But at least with him eating grown up foods like noodles and pasta it'll be handier for you to just cook a meal for the whole family now :) x

  2. Can I just say that your son is ADORABLE! Those 2 teeth at the bottom. Sorry...I was totally distracted by his cuteness. How do you get anything done. Much of what you have said resonates with friends who have babies so this is lovely.
    Again...SO CUTE! LOL

  3. What a beautiful baby your Harry is. My last three also refused to eat purées and loved baby led weaning. So much easier when you have an older sibling too. I think they like to copy.

  4. Every Mum says babies grow so quickly! I guess when you're busy running around after them you forget how fast time flies :)

  5. Harrison is such a cutie Kerry! He's grown so much since I bumped into you both outside Britmums, he was so itty bitty then :) I can't believe how quickly the year is flying by either, it seems like it was only yesterday that you were announcing his birth! He's Amelia's double isn't he? They're so cute together x

  9. Nooooooo! how can he be 8 months old already? I swear you only just had him! He's growing up so fast, he sounds really mature for his age- like the nap cutting and the way he's eating. What a little beauty x

  11. Time is precious with kids, it really does go too fast. In just four years he'll be at school!! Walking, talking, answering back, making up his own mind, its scary, but so lovely to watch and learn from them.
    Enjoy every moment!!

  17. That cute little face! It's funny to watch little ones trying out new foods, they always seem so grown up! Nice to see he's trying so much variety :) I gave my nephew a raspberry not too long ago and his face was all scrunched up in shock at how bitter it was, and then he kept eating it anyway! Adorable :)

  18. What a sweetie! It did not seem long ago at all that he was a little baby on your blog. He now looks like a little character.It is good you are managing to get some sleep. My nephew is nearly 2 and my sister only gets max 2 hours per night!

  19. Lovely photos of them both, it's clear that they are wonderful siblings :)
    My little girl is 7 1/2 months and like you, I think it has flown by, she is no longer my little baby!

  21. Harrison is so handsome, they grow up so fast, Just looking at your photos and his two teeth has brought back memories of a photo very similar I have of Finn with his toothy grin, he is 5 now and I don't know where the years have gone. These posts will be so special to have in years to come

  22. It's crazy how quick time goes when you have kids! I've never wished lamb was a baby again though, I just love him as a toddler, he was so difficult as a baby. Harry and Amelia look so cute together and you can really see their bond in your photos xx

  23. It flies by doesn't it, but he's doing so well. He sounds like he is doing really well. Don't worry about not getting him weighed. If you can see he's growing and you have no concerns it's not worth going. I hardly got my third child weighed at all

  24. Awww what a lovely update, he is growing so fast! I remember reading your pregnancy updates and that seems like it was 5 minutes ago! I love the photo of him looking at Amelia, it's super cute! =)

  25. Gorgeous gorgeous, time really does fly when you have two kids, watching them interact is amazing though, my two ladies are so cute together, sometimes I hide around the corner to listen, they're adorable perhaps I'm a weirdo!!

  26. He is gorgeous! I can't believe he is 8 months old already! He looks so much like Amelia too :). You have two beautiful children Kerry! x

  27. He is such a beautiful child! Very alike with Amelia. Its like watching an advert in TV :)

  28. Those pictures are just gorgeous! He looks so much like Amelia. I think boys seemingly sleep far better than girls, Henry is only 12 days old I know, but he is sleeping soooo much better than Darcie ever did! xxx

  30. I've said I'm done with having kids after having 3. Then I see posts like this that remind me how precious babies are and I get all broody again.
