8 months old!

It's been a big month for our little tyke. There are no boundaries now, anything on the floor is fair game! Even J's lunch crumbs... yuck. (I promise I try to sweep them up before he can get to them.)

In the meal department he hasn't branched out too much. Butternut squash, peas, apple sauce, squash, green beans, bananas, blue berries and pears mixed with rice or whole wheat cereals complete his menu. He consistently gags with the peas and green beans, hmmm.

Our big announcement: His first Sign! "Eat" of course. We've been trying to consistently sign "eat" and "more" during his solids meal time, and a few days ago he grasped his two chubby fists together and patted his little mouth several times!! He even repeated it several times with a cute smile. (haven't captured this on video yet)

Since then I've noticed him making the "finished" gesture, but I'm not sure he knows that one yet. Sure is cute though.

He weighs about 19 lbs and has plenty of adorable chub. Two teeth are proudly peeking through his bottom gums now.

Still sleeping through most nights, although lately he has decided to wake up at around 4 or 5 am... mommy is not thrilled with this.

So much Joy!

PS. We really don't let him play with the finger nail clippers!
