Caleb is now 8 months old!
Here are some pics:
Standing up (he started pulling to stand last week)
Chewing on a pen (the only way to distract him from chewing on the paper- hehe)
Crawling independentlyOh Dear Caleb!
I love you so much! You are growing and changing at an incredibly rapid rate right now. You learned to crawl with your belly off the floor and pull to stand on the same day last week. Since then, you've wanted to do nothing but stand up! I think you'll be walking before we know it. You are nursing/taking a bottle 3-5 times a day, eating baby food 3 times, and trying a few "real" solids like puffs and tiny bits of banana. Your favorite things to play with are stackable rings, anything electronic, water, and your toy bin at the bottom of the dresser. You also love to listen to stories and make the raspberry sound. You recently started imitating us, but the only thing you consistently do is shake your head "no." You learned this from your Grandma Hunt (thanks Kayleen- haha). I've been working on "yes" and waving to no avail. You also hide your head and play peek-a-boo. You've recently started crawling to find mama or daddy if we leave the room. Although you're sleep habits are having a bit of trouble adjusting to your new life here, overall you are going to bed around 8pm and waking up around 7am (with a feeding at 11 by dad and one at 4 by mom- hopefully this will change asap as you get used to the new schedule). You take naps around 10 or 11 and 2 or 3. You are still curious as ever, with a very concentrated look on your face most of the time. You are VERY excited because you just found out that you're going to have a boy "cousin" to play with, since mama and daddy's friends are having a boy. Dear, sweet Caleb, I can't wait to see all the ways you grow and change even in the next 4 weeks. I love you so much and am so excited to see the person that you are becoming!
