8 months!

When we were having our cookie palooza last weekend, Laura said to me “Can you believe you have an 8 month old?” My response “Nope!”

It is just crazy to even try to remember life without his smiling face. What it was like in the morning to just have to worry about getting myself ready without chasing a crawling! baby boy. And the joy I have *most* mornings when I go to his crib and see his smiling face. This last month, he has grown and changed so  much. He is so interactive and busy. His personality is coming out – he will tell you what he wants and doesn’t want! Smile

New things this month:

    • Crawling! Everywhere. Into everything.
    • Favorite things to ‘get into’ include: Abby’s water dish, the kitchen cupboards (especially the one with all the Tupperware), the Christmas tree (loves the bells on the bottom branches), Abby’s tail, and cords – to the laptop, fan, anything!
    • Furniture surfing. He can make his way all the way around the coffee table. Nothing is safe!  
    • First tooth! Lots of tears with this one. No fun at all. Sad smile
    • Had his 3rd ear infection. Boo.
    • Still loves bath time – especially likes to crawl around the tub after his toys.
    • He loves eating puffs and cheerios – he could probably eat them all day long!

Still hates:

  • getting his diaper changed
  • seeing his bottle and not getting it
  • running out of puffs
  • generally, not getting what he wants
  • getting out of the bath

    Monday can’t get here soon enough. Seeing his 8 months pics makes me want to smooch him up one side and down the other. So cute.

  2. He seems like the happiest baby. I remember my nephews when they were first crawling – you literally couldn’t take your eyes off them for a second! My nieces weren’t quite as….adventurous. haha! Boys are busy, but so much fun!

    I hope you guys have a wonderful first Christmas with Mr. Luke!
