Happy 7-8 Months!

Well, as you can see by the title of this post, we have been slacking on monthly updates!  So we're doing a two-fer.
A two-for-one.

Andrew, you have grown and changed so much over the past 2 months!  From sitting and crawling, to new foods and favorite toys.  It has been such a joy to watch you see the world every day, through fresh and curious eyes.  You are so happy, content, and easy-going.  
7 Months

Touching faces (obsessed with mouths and teeth!)
Soft and fuzzy textures (carpet, rugs, stuffed animals)
Trying new foods! You love everything except peas 
Remote Controls
Your radio
Watching Mommy and Daddy dancing
Falling asleep in the car 

Getting Dressed 
Getting out of the Bathtub
Buckling into the Car seat (but you're fine once you're in!)

You can now lift your arms up to be held, and you're having just a little bit of separation anxiety. 
You're napping 3 times a day, and  sleeping 11-12 hours a night (yay!)
Bedtime: 7:00-7:30pm
Awake: 6:30-7:00am 

You haven't grown much, just a little peanut weighing in at 15 lbs, and 26 inches!


8 Months

You're finally crawling!
Well, scooting ;)  It's more of an army crawl, but you are definitely on the move!
And you are so curious, you love reaching into baskets and bookshelves.

You were quite the little traveler this month!  And a good one at that!
Planes, Trains, Subways, and more ;)
And you loved your first trip to NYC and the Central Park Zoo!

Food favorites:
mashed bananas, peaches, pears, and green beans

You love people and smiling at everybody.  You have such a sweet demeanor, and especially love playing with other babies.  

You have become quite the talker and have really found your "voice"
Favorite sounds:
"Ba, ga, da, ta"

Bath Toys
Mum Mums
Tummy Smooches, especially from Daddy
Playing "Peek-a-Boo"
Your pacifier

Lack of Food
Getting Dressed
Getting your diaper changed

You are sleeping 11-12 hours at night still (7pm-7am), and still taking 3 naps a day.  
You weigh in at a whopping 15.5 lbs - and are 26.5 inches.  

Oh, and everyone thinks you're "she" ;)  Must be those eyelashes!

We love you darling boy!
