Judah: 8 Months

(I know I took these pictures, but I can't find them so when I do I'll post them!)
How many months old? 8 months
Weight? 16 pounds 10 ounces
Teeth? He got his first two teeth finally! The bottom two have grown in, but aren't fully through.
Doctor check-up? None this past month
Sleep? We have transferred Judah from sleeping on a floor bed in his brother's room to sleeping in a pack-n-play in the living room. Then we upgraded him to his actual crib (I cannot believe it took 8 months for us to put his crib together #secondchild), then we moved that crib so that he could sleep with his brother in the same room again. Judah wakes up one or two times I night. He goes down at 7:30pm and usually wakes up around 2-3:30am and again around 5-6am.  
Feeding? Nursing is great. He nurses every 3-4 hours or more if he wants. 
Eating anything? He eats everything pretty much. Poor guy does not like super hot chicken curry no matter how much yogurt I put in it to take the spice out. 
Developmental milestones? Vocalizes like crazy, but still no words. Crawling like a pro.
Favorite Toy? Loves to put everything in his mouth, so anything that has an unusual texture, he loves!
Speech and Language? He babbles saying things over and over like babababa or dadada, but they still don't have a meaning. He very much understands who mommy and daddy are. He lights up when he sees Shepherd and laughs at him.
Loves? He loves being in the water and doesn't like it when I take him out.
Dislikes? He still doesn't like his clothes getting changed, but he has let me know when he doesn't care for a certain food. He will throw it on the ground, but I will give him that same food the next day or the same week and he will eat it. So I don't know.
