Abraham: 8 Months

My sweet little peanut is growing up.

You've learned how much fun it is to play outside on the few warm days we've had this last month.  You were content for hours just to be outside watching all the activity going on around you.

You've learned how to get into things you aren't supposed to and you give me this face when you get caught.

We have to start putting up baby gates.  My least favorite part of this stage.

You've been gaining weight steadily on your new diet of amino acid formula and are now above the 10th percentile at 16 lbs. 8 oz.  You take about 6 bottles during the day and one in the night.

I call this your stinker face.

You crawl like a sea lion all over the house.  You drag your legs behind you like they are dead weight.  It looks like so much work, but you are determined to get where you want to go all on your own.

Pulling up on things is a new favorite.

The dishwasher is a favorite.  There are so many things in there that are off limits, it's just too tempting.

You can also sit independently really well.

 You are slowly transitioning down to 2 naps a day, which makes you really sleepy and snuggly in the evening.  I'll take it.

Hopefully we will be able to finalize your adoption before you turn 9 months old.  I'm ready to say you are forever ours!
