Yes, my child is already 11 months old, and I'm just now posting about months 8, 9, and 10.  Life is crazy and hectic, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!

8 months:
I'm not sure about his height and weight, but I have a feeling he was still around 20 pounds.
Foods:  still homemade baby food - and he's still not crazy about green vegetables.  Squash, sweet potatoes, and fruits are his favorites. 
Diapers:  Size 3
Clothes:  mostly 9-12 months, but definitely fitting in some 12-18
Milk:  some breastmilk, but he has started on formula
Sleeping:  ALL night.  I'm blessed with good sleeping babies.  He also still takes 2 naps a day.
Milestone:  Really sits up well, and he's finally able to sit (unassisted) in the tub.
Here's what he has been up to:

Walker went to his first movie, sat with the Easter Bunny, and fed the giraffes at the zoo.  Lots of firsts.

9 months:
weight:  20 lbs 14 oz (15th %)
height:  30.5 inches (80th %)
head:  18.5 (11th %)
He didn't have to get shots at his well visit, but they did prick his finger to check his iron.  It was 12.2 which the nurse practitioner said was great.
size:  in between 9-12 and 12-18 months
diapers:  size 4 (although he could still wear 3's)
food:  we've introduced a little meat, but it's hard for him to chew since he doesn't have any teeth!  He LOVES it, though.
Milestone:  He got tubes!  After an ear infection that wouldn't go away until he got three rounds of Rocephin shots, we were more than ok with taking that step.
Here's what he's been up to:

10 months:
height - probably around 21 pounds
diaper:  size 4
clothes:  9-12 and 12-18
food:  He's eating more and more table food (which is really nice).  He still takes 5-6 oz bottles of formula.  
Teeth:  He's definitely teething, but nothing yet.
Milestone:  He survived 8 days without Mommy and Daddy (we were on our mission trip in Palau)
Here's what has been up to:

As you can see, Walker is still a really happy baby!  His big sister still adores him, and he things she hung the moon and stars!  We love how much joy this little boy has brought to our lives!  We look forward to what comes next, although, if I could, I'd pause him where he is.  He's growing up way too fast!
