8 Months

Our little guy is now 8 months old! I’ll let the pictures and the video do most of the talking. He’s been working on standing with one hand on something for support, even letting go for a split second before landing on his bum. He also has mastered the pincer grasp and stuffs food in his mouth at an alarming pace. He’s UNSWADDLED in his crib (this is a big deal for us), and can find his paci in the middle of the night. He also practices rocking on his hands and knees in the crib. He’s waved at a few people (the dentist’s office ladies and Erin!), but still won’t show his dad. The kid is stubborn!

What else? His sense of humor is coming along. He’ll have little fits of giggles unrelated to anything that’s happening at the time, like he’s either imagining what would be funny, or remembering something. I could be imagining that, but I’m pretty sure there’s more to it than just a random laugh.

Anyhoo, we’re both head over heels for him, and he seems to have taken a liking to us as well. =) I’m really tired, and headed to bed. His sleep is coming along, but we still have a good number of rough nights. Did I mention he was stubborn?

A new tradition. This Statue is on an island in Meredith Bay. It's only accessible by ice, so we'll be going out there every winter for a picture!

And last but not least, a funny video. Watch till the end- he goes all limbs akimbo on us. Also note- the leg he whacks out to the side here and there is actually a calculated move. He’s turning! Ha! I lol every time I watch this thing.

    It is so much fun to see the pictures and videos….I think that’s pretty clever of him to figure out the turns by kickin’ out that leg…….he is a charmer!
    Give him a cuddle and a smooch from the Hardings…..
