Someone should of told me to get in tip top shape before Griffin turned 8 months old, because Mama.Is.Tired.
The kid below is on the move and will no longer sit still so I can snap a few pictures. I will now cherish all the blurry pictures from here on out.
With you being so mobile now, you are also learning the word, No. Boy, do you hate to hear that word. You like to test my buttons try to do whatever I said no to, but I hope you are quickly learning your boundaries. We shall see.
You still take bottles, but we have moved you to yogurt in the mornings and added stage 2 baby food to your diet. You didn't miss a beat when switching from Stage 1 to Stage 2 so I am glad we didn't have any regression in your eating.
Your personality is shining, baby. You definitely do not meet a stranger and you still will go to anyone and give them your best smile.
You are still my little water baby and we introduced you to a sink bath. You thought you were hot stuff sitting in their like a big boy. Baths no require Mama and Dada to wear raincoats and have lots of extra towels on hand from all the splashing. But we are happy to have you happy.
This month was also full of sickness. You had your 9th ear infection which resulted to you having surgery to have tubes place in your ears and we had a hospital visit with RSV. Thankfully it did not require you to stay overnight.
You love your Dada but you have been a huge Mama's boy. I can hardly leave the room without you getting your feelings hurt and poking out your lip. Hopefully your separation anxiety will pass, but for now I am eating it all up.
We also started letting you sit in the shopping carts some on quick trips to the store. You love being able to see everything and everyone. You give your best squinty eyed smile and flirt with all the ladies. Such a heart breaker.
This month you celebrated your first Thanksgiving and your first Christmas. Those holidays were so much fun with you in them.
Happy 8 months Griffin. You are the light of my life and I am very lucky to be your Mama. Now if we can just get you to call me Mama. ;-)
