8 Months

How does the time keep passing by so quickly?  Wasn’t my son just born a couple months ago?  No, it’s been 8 months!  8 months since I held my little boy for the first time.  8 months since we changed from a couple to a family.  8 months without getting a full night’s sleep.  Haha!  That last one is definitely true, but it’s been worth it.

Our little Goose is turning from a baby into a little boy, and he is just getting cuter and cuter every day.  These days we are working on his crawling…..or lack thereof.  He can spin on his belly, but has yet to figure out how to get up on all fours.  Which is a wonder, because he has no problem getting his knees under him with his tushy in the air in the middle of the night.  In fact, that is his favorite sleeping position!

Another new thing we’ve been working on the past few days is having him stand by himself without us holding onto him.  He’s always had pretty strong legs, and could support his own weight since he was about 3.5 months old, but he didn’t understand that he had to hold onto something to keep from falling over.  Well, this week he’s finally figured that out, and now he loves standing!

Grayson is definitely an animal lover, and he lights up anytime Kaylee (our Saint Bernard) or one of our three cats comes in view.

These days, I’m pretty sure that Daddy is his favorite person.  Yah, I know he loves me, and I’m normally the only one who can calm him down if he’s having a meltdown, but you should see the way he looks at his Daddy.  He squeals in delight whenever he sees him and grins from ear to ear.  There’s just a special bond between father and son.  It’s so wonderful to watch them together.

These baseball pictures are from a couple weeks ago, but they are too cute not to share!

This one is the current wallpaper on my phone.

Our little slugger!  I can’t wait to take him to his first T-ball game!
