8 Months (plus 5 days)

Our baby boy turned 8 months old last Tuesday, but this Mommy is just getting around to journal about his monthly milestones. Lots has changed and this boy is everywhere & into everything.

Look at our big boy, he weighs 24lbs. 15oz., wears 12-18 month clothes and size 5 diapers.

Yummy, yummy, yummy ~ look at those chubby lil' toes and feet. I could spend all day kissing them and still want more.

Proudly sporting 4 bottom teeth and 1 top one as of yesterday. Biting and chewing on everything he can. His nursing days might be coming to an end soon.

Thinks his big sister hung the moon, is hilarious, loves to pull her hair, play with her stuff and stare at her constantly.

Says Dada, Mama, Emma, buh and chatters non stop. A lover of Yo Baby yogurt & wagon wheels. Turns on his baby toys to hear them sing and enjoys tearing up his sister's books. Smiles anytime he sees a camera while getting cuter and cuter every day. Reminds me more and more of my Daddy everyday. Allows our dog to lick all over him while he yanks and pulls on his ears and tail. Is not a big fan of sleep these days, usually wakes up between 2-3am daily (this boy is giving us a run for our money). Pulls up on everything and has managed to stand on his feet about a dozen time. Continues to enjoy bath time and rides in the car. Has the cutest little crawl I have ever seen (right, left, belly flop & up again).

Sweet Gavin, you have convinced me that every Mommy in the world needs to experience the love of a son. There is something so different about you and every day I feel more and more blessed to have you in my life. I love you more than you will ever know or understand. Part of me gets a little sad that you are growing up so quickly, but I cherish each day and look forward to watching you grow. Thank you for 8 wonderful months, Son.
