Our little guy turned 8 months old last Thursday. He's quickly turning into a little boy. He's curious and eager to play with new things. Moving constantly. Rolling over, pushing himself up. Wiggling. He's crazy busy these days. I usually break a sweat getting him dressed in the morning.

He's eating really well, most days. We introduced Grad.uates Puffs a couple weeks ago and he can't get enough of them. In a matter of a few days he figured out how to pick them up and put them in his mouth. He misses his target often, and we can usually find them stuck to the back of his hand or under his chin. There are the few lost souls that drop to the floor. They don't survive there long because Tucker and Sugar are anxiously waiting.

For the past couple of months he's been going through a separation anxiety phase. He mostly only wants his Papa, Mama, Auntie Becky, and cousins Zach and Drew. When we are home, he's definitely a Papa's boy.

He's started to push himself up off his chest. He's thinking about how he needs to move his knees to reach for the object in front of him. For now though, he mostly just rocks. It's adorable. He looks up at us for approval and when we cheer him on he grins with pride.

Auntie Becky has been teaching him to wave, kiss and give high-five. He's also recently started to blow bubbles.

Had one of his first interactions with little kids around his age at cousin Kellen's birthday party. He wanted to stay close to Mama and Papa, but watched the other kids closely. They all had a trick or two to share.

Sleeping has been going very well. We passed the big hurdle over the holidays and it's been pretty much smooth sailing since then. He sleeps most nights 7 pm to 5:30am. He occasionally wakes throughout the night, but settles fairly quickly. Napping has been going really well during the day too.

His hair is growing in and getting thicker. It's very light blond and fuzzy. I love it.

Just tonight I noticed that he looked at me each time I said his name. He might have been doing this for a while, but I just noticed it tonight. We were playing a game and it was fun to get his attention by calling his name.
