8 months old






Happy 8 months my precious boy!

I can't believe you are already 8 months! It seems like yesterday you were hours old in my arms...now, you are full of sounds, laughs, screams, and such a "big boy." You have some really funny new faces you make "squishing" your nose up and I am afraid you are imitating my frown face, LOL! You study everything intently. Any new places you look around and across the room with great fascination. You like the vowel sound noises best (ohs, ahs, ees, uhs, mmms) and like to vary the pitch up and down as well as loud and soft. You are still working on crawling, reaching "up", and learning to grasp Cheerios from your tray (I still have to put them in your hand, but most of the time they make it to your mouth). I see the beginning of "raking" your hands when things are on your tray in front of you and you are a champion at grabbing everything (hair, necklaces, you name it) and it goes straight to your mouth..your brother and sisters are learning about "choking hazards" so when you do start to crawl we will be ready! All the tiny perla beads, pixos, and lego pieces are hard to keep up high, so we may have to rethink toys around here (Dad will be thrilled!). Your sisters and brother are so in love with you (as are your Dad and I) and we love to see them playing and having fun with you. More importantly you love them too, your face lights up when they come home from school or sneak up on you while you are playing. Peek a boo is a funny game to you and one of your favorite things is to blow raspberries at them.



What a difference 8 months makes. Not every day is easy, but the storm clouds are continuing to clear. God is good. Life is full, we feel blessed and can't wait to see what new things you accomplish each and every day. All my love my precious Parker!
