8 Months

Can you believe it?! Eight freaking months old. The time is just flying by. We had our first Thanksgiving as a family. We had a few friends over for lunch since our family lives in Indiana. We learned that Henry loves turkey, but to be honest he loves everything. 
8 months

This kid is growing up. He crawls everywhere, all the time. I can't keep up. He is working on pulling himself up to stand. He will stand if you help him up but can't get all the way up alone. Talking is on a whole new level. He still loves to say mama and has said dada maybe a few times. He will say Da randomly though. He hardly shuts up and has learned to yell when he is mad instead of crying. 

Boxes > Toys

Look what I can do
We survived our second cold. I had read that teething caused a runny nose, so I thought that was why he had one. Then I got sick. I guess all of his cart licking finally caught up with him. Still no teeth but you can see the little buds. He is pretty hilarious and knows what faces makes us laugh. The dogs are his new favorite things. All they have to do is look in his direction and he cracks up. I seriously can't wait to see what the next month brings us.

7 Months

This Halloween our little guy turned 7 months. No we didn't got trick or treating. He doesn't need candy and to be honest neither do we. He has gone through serious growth spurt and out grew most of his pajamas and pants this month. 

Happy Halloween/7 months

This kid is on the move. He rolls all over the place and has figured out how to maneuver around the furniture. He recently has started to try his hand at crawling. He can get on his knees but falls when he tries to move. We are predicting he will be crawling by Thanksgiving. He is a pro at sitting up and butt scooting.  

Teething is in full force. So much drool everywhere. There are no teeth out yet but you can see them under his gums. He has started sitting in the cart which makes my life so much easier at the store. He has finally said his first word. Drumroll.....Mama! Everyone said it would be dada but he decided to go against the odds I guess. I think dada is coming soon since he has mastered baba. He loves every food we have given him so far. This week we are starting meat, so we will see how that goes. 

Baby Jail

We had to buy a baby gate to keep him from getting into everything. We like to call it baby jail. If we don't keep him contained he is like a hurricane. He destroys everything. Let's hope it will withstand him once crawling starts.
