8 Months Old!

Today our baby is 8 months old! It is hard to believe it, but he's growing so fast and he's learning new skills every day. Here's a recap of his recent achievements:

He now has 3 teeth...two on the bottom and one on top

He is pulling himself up to standing and will stay up for quite a while

He is practicing for crawling, although he hasn't made that transition yet

He is saying "dada" and "mama"
He is waving at us--sometimes with both arms and sometimes with just one

He's eating all sorts of new foods including cheese, peaches, yogurt, bread, peas, carrots, green beans, avocadoes, apples, pears, sweet potatoes, rice cereal and oatmeal

He's sleeping through the night on most nights and has a fairly consistent bedtime

In general, I have to say this is such an amazing and fun time to be Nolan's mom. He's a joy to have in my life. While the first three months of his life were demanding and difficult, the last few months have been such a pleasure. He's a happy, laughing, giggling, curious baby. He loves snuggling and giving his mama hugs. Ah, I am a lucky woman!

So Proud to be Standing
