Peter Bryson Month by Month: 8 Months


January 27, 2017

Dear Peter,

You turned 8 months old today. You started saying "Mamama" this month!  Not on purpose, but another unintentional word like "Dada".  Although, you usually only say it when you are crying and whining.  You say "Dadada"  when you are happy and excited.  Your dad finds this hilarious,  I don't think its quite as funny as he does.  

We fed you a graham cracker for the first time this month and you were in heaven.  You made a huge mess and got mushy crackers everywhere, but your happy squeals and smiles made it worth it. 

You are getting a little bit closer to crawling, sort of.  You will crawl out from a sitting position to try to grab things and then you just kind of sprawl out on your belly instead of holding yourself up.  You still don't have teeth but your bottom two are getting really close. They've been pretty swollen and you've been very fussy and sleeping horribly so we are crossing our fingers they cut through soon.

You got your first bad cold and cough this past month.  You have been wheezing since you were very little and recently got diagnosed with asthma.  Since you already have asthma any time you get a cold or cough its pretty hard on your respiratory system.  We have to give you breathing treatments twice a day, which you hate!  But the good thing is they are helping a ton.

Your love when your sister Claire plays with you.  You get so excited and whenever she comes into the room.  you love when she plays peekaboo with you and when she tickles you.  You also like to try to steal her water bottle and snacks whenever they are in close proximity to you.

We all love having you in our family.  You are such a happy, sweet boy!  

Love you too much,

Mom
