Fits of laughter, squealing with delight, rolling from here to there and everywhere. Cheerios, puffs, and water in your sippy. Pulling hair, giving kisses, snuggling in tight. Pulling on your socks, chewing on your socks and waving hello…sort of.
Speaking of chewing on–is there a teether around? You usually have one! Spitting up (still!), waking up (still! constantly!), reaching up (that’s a new one). Screeching for what you want, learning new things, and trying to crawl (not quite there yet, buddy!). Open mouth kisses, snorting with excitement and an entirely too long bout of bronchitis.
First Easter basket, first Easter outfit (Daddy picked it out for you), and first Easter egg hunt. A visit to the barn, a visit with the horses, and your first french fry EVER!!! Teeny tiny fly away hairs, a scrunched up little nose and still the same old two baby teeth.
Baby blue eyes, somewhat reddish hair, cute chubby cheeks and pulling us in close. Kicking your legs with excitement, tickling your neck (and hearing the laughter it brings!), smacking your lips together for fun. The look of recognition, eyes searching for the voice and a smile that goes on for days…..
The joy you bring, the love you share, the hearts that you fill and the innocence of it all.
We are blessed.
Happy 8 months, sweet babe. I love you more than you could ever know.
