Our big boy Davis turned 8 months old last week! He is still in the lead as our biggest baby, weighing in at a whopping 21lbs. I believe Hunter was 19lbs and Wyatt was 20lbs at this age.
Davis is crawling and moving around the room at lightening speed. Nothing is safe these days and everything goes straight into his mouth, including mounds of dog hair (grossss).
This past week Davis has been waking up 3x per night and I am not sure why, but we are ready to get rid of those night feedings. Time to sleep train, for real this time! I am hesitant to do it because I really don't want to wake the other boys during the night, but I think Davis will benefit long term if we nip this in the bud as soon as possible.
He is eating everything! Cheese, beans, lentils, pb&j sandwiches, eggs, all fruits, cooked veggies, and loves baby puffs. He drinks out of a straw cup during meal times, just like his brothers did at this age. Still no teeth, but he manages to eat with no problems.
Davis is wearing size 9 months in clothes and mainly wears zip up sleepers. I don't dress him up as much as I did the other boys because the sleepers are much easier and seem to be more comfortable for him. He pretty much rotates the same five sleepers - sorry third child :)
He is still the happiest baby ever and is always smiling. His smile is contagious and he makes us all so happy. The big boys love him so much and always run to greet him. They want to play with him so badly (although I think that will change when Davis starts stealing their toys).
We love you Davis - can't believe you have been a part of our family for over eight months already.

Oh Davis, the sweetest little baby. All of the sudden Davis has transformed from and little baby that only drinks milk, to an energetic, wiggly, talkative, jumping, and hungry big baby.
He loves food just like his brothers (cheese, puffs, rice krispys, lentils, rice, beans, banana bread (!), and chopped fruit.
He is all over the place! He crawls backwards and rolls around the room. Goodbye to the days when I could put him on his playmat and go take a shower - it's not safe anymore. I can't believe he is already mobile.
He wakes up 1-2 times per night (11pm-ish and 4am-ish. He really doesn't need the first feeding, but I am too tired these days to sleep train him. Also, he may be our last baby, so I am trying to enjoy the baby stage as I know it won't last forever. Having a twin bed in his room has been so nice for the middle of the night snuggles/feedings.
Still no teeth! Hunter and Wyatt got their first teeth at 5 months old, so I figured Davis would too, but the dentist said he may not even get any until closer to his first birthday.
He loves jumping in his johnny jumper and exersaucer and is getting really strong. Every morning after I get him up, I place him on his playmat and he will happily roll around and play for an hour or more.
Davis loves life and is literally always smiling. His personality is so sweet, patient, and mellow and he makes me so happy.

Last week Davis turned six months old. I can't believe he is already halfway to ONE. He is still the smiliest, calmest, and most content baby ever. I feel so lucky to have him as my third child.
Weight: 18.7lbs, 69%
Height: 27", 66%
Head circumference: 45.5cm, 96%
Davis is rolling both ways, doing push ups, babbling, sitting with assistance, eating solids, and graduated to a convertible car seat. He has changed so much this past month, it is really fun to watch.
Davis wakes up twice a night still, although I am trying to cut one of his feedings since he doesn't need the calories. He still naps up to three times a day. I am trying to get him to nap only two times, but sometimes around 4-5pm he gets tired so I let him take a quick snooze.
We love you Davis and can't imagine life without you!

I was so nervous and anxious about this since bedtime was so easy for us, but surprisingly it has been pretty smooth. They take about 30 minutes to relax and quiet down before falling asleep (as opposed to about 10 minutes when they had their own rooms).
