What's that? It's my Birthday!
I totally stole this idea from a friend. She's been making signs like that to document all the major milestones for her daughter. I wish we'd started sooner, but he's young enough that it'll still be cute I think.
Of course, Michael was much more interested in trying to eat the sign. He's a big fan of trying to eat everything he can reach these days.
Here are a few other photos just documenting how adorable we think he is at 8 months. :)
He is now crawling all over the place. He's getting pretty fast! He can push himself up into a sitting position from a crawl. He can pull himself up to a standing position while holding onto furniture, but he can't sit himself back down. He's not quite "traveling" yet, but I don't think it will be much longer. We made a good start at babyproofing our house this weekend. By that, I mean that we put up some baby gates to at least limit where he can explore. We still can't take our eyes off him for a nano-second or he'll get into something. He eats babyfood like a champ, and he's learning to do finger food. He loves cheerios and string cheese and sometimes toast, but he is NOT a fan of avocado. He "talks" to us more and more. He drools all the time and gnaws on everything, but no teeth yet. I look forward to what this next month will bring!
