8 Months

Well, James is now 8 months old. I didn't think I would have much for the 8 month update because I have been updating the blog more often. Well, he made the last week and a half very exciting so I would have something to talk about!
First of all I weighed him on the wii and he is about 17.5 lbs. now. I think he is making good progress with his weight.

James got to spend some quality time with his Grandma and Grandpa Wynkoop last week.
We had really beautiful weather so we got to spend some time outside playing, which James really enjoyed.
Other than that, he had a really rough week last week. He had trouble sleeping at night and for naps, and he was really congested. For a couple days I wasn't sure what was going on. Then I saw a little blister on his gums and figured he was teething but this 3rd tooth was A LOT worse than the first two. Well four days later another tooth appeared. When I looked inside today it appears there is at least one more tooth if not two or three on the horizon. No wonder the 3rd tooth was 3 times as bad...it was actually at least 3 teeth.
As if a mouthful of teeth wasn't enough for our week, James now has a little stomach bug. The past two feedings haven't done much to nourish him (without getting too graphic) they have done more to stain his clothes (and our carpet). We're hoping for an uneventful night and a slow recovery to regular eating tomorrow. We'll see!
