8 months old!

My little man turned 8 months old on Sunday! I can't believe how fast the time has passed. He is growing up so much!

He loves playing with books, electronics, cords, everything he's not supposed to! you can put him down in front of a pile of toys, and he will scoot across the room to get to the computer cord.

He still hasn't cut these teeth. They are being stubborn!

He loves all his fruit and veggies, and is mastering the pincher grip. He loves to eat kix and gerber puffs. I tried little pieces of soft veggies yesterday, and he wasn't a fan. We'll keep working on that. He loves his Munchkin fresh food feeder, and especially loves when I put frozen cantaloupe in it!

He is a pro at getting where he wants to go. He isn't crawling yet, but buy can he scoot!

He babbles and talks all the time. His favorite thing to say is dada. (though he doesn't know what it means yet.) But he is a very vocal little man!

He is starting to reach for me. Today we were sitting out on the grass, and someone started a really loud truck across the street. It startled him, and he turned and reached out to me to pick him up. Once I was holding him, he turned to look and see what the noise was. =) It was precious!

He is taking 2 naps a day, a morning nap, and early afternoon nap. He sleeps for 1-2 hours. He is still having problems with sleeping through the night... hopefully that will pass soon!

He is learning how to wave, and does it all the time (except when we want to show off that he can do it! haha)

I can't wait for all the firsts that summer will bring for him. Swimming, camping (hopefully), hiking (maybe!) and just being able to introduce him to all the fun outdoors things that winter kept us from exploring. (he sat in the grass and played with leaves for the first time last week... it was cute!)

I love my little guy!

I loved this! My little girl will be 8 months old in a week.
She is doing many of the same things as your little one.
"Da da" is her favorite thing to say, too!
She just broke both of her bottom front teeth (1 day apart!). No pincher grasp yet, though, and no crawling, but she's definitely working on it.
