As I type this, Wyatt is actually closer to 9 months than 8, but I owe it to him and to myself to do a little update!
Wyatt is still an overall happy baby. Not that I have much basis for comparison, but he truly is an "easy" child and with the rare exception of a little cold or sickness he has a great temperament and pretty much only gets fussy when he is tired. He is very independent and will sit and play with his toys for 20-30 minute stretches - often he becomes so engrossed with his toys that he will just ignore us trying to play with him. (And he's stubborn when he knows you want his attention)
Accomplishments: still "stuck in reverse" on the crawl - he pushes himself backward but can't quite figure out the forward motion yet. we'll get there!, his new trick is turning on and off his closet light when he's laying on his changing table. standing up -- although we are always right behind or beside him because he does fall sometimes
Words: same as last month. hey, mama, dada (he says dada ALL. THE. TIME. and typically only says mama when he's getting upset over something)
Stats: almost 21 lbs, size 3 or 3.5 shoe, size 4 diapers, most of his clothes that fit him are 6-12 months or 12 months depending on the brand.
Likes: fans! (he has re-discovered them lately and loves to see them turned on), bath time (this is a great way to cheer him up if he's grumpy), all his fruits, yogurt melts, his learning table, balls, cell phones, car keys, paper, glow-worm, pacis
Dislikes: diaper changes, getting his coat on (can't wait for summer), getting into his carseat, table food (he is unsure of the texture, I think), tummy time/learning to crawl
