Today I am ...

8 months old!

I am 8 months old now!
I can crawl around pretty quickly!
I can pull myself up and cruise along furniture!
I am slowly learning to like food and slowly learning to sleep at night.
My favorite snack food is whole grain goldfish.
My favorite thing to play with is my granny's walker. Sometimes I stand up and walk around with it too, but then I move it where she can't reach it and mom has to come get it from me.
I don't exactly like to have my diaper changed and usually wiggle and squirm and make it very hard for mom and dad to change me.
I love cords. All kinds of cords. They are fun to chew on, but all the grown-ups take them away from me :-(
I LOVE being with my big sisters. I love to get into their toys, usually when they don't want me too.
I like to be tickled and held and cuddled.
I'm a momma's boy these days. She leaves the room and I am not happy about it.
I like to go in the swings at the park and have mommy push me.
I have already fallen off of mom and dad's bed and my stroller ... I'm pretty brave and adventurous. Mom and dad are not always fast enough to save me from myself. But they are getting better and learning where it's safe to put me and where I will find the most trouble. Mom is sure by the time I hit two I will have plenty of bruises from all my exploring!
I am a happy baby. I pretty much only cry when I need to eat or if I'm feeling lonely and need to be held. I can now recognize the sign for milk, although I haven't attempted to do it myself. When I see mom make it though I crawl right over to her, and assume eating position!
I have a lot of fun during the day and love all the visitors that come in and out of our house.
My family loves me and feel so blessed that I came to be a part of their lives!
