8 Months!!

Dear Drake,

You are eight months old now! We can't believe how big you are getting. You have changed so much this month!

This month you started crawling (9/15)! You have mastered that plus moving from laying down to sitting up like a pro. You've even learned how to pull up on everything...including your crib (9/17)! You will leave one hand on something and reach for something else, too. I think you'll be cruising the furniture soon!You have three meals (started lunch on 9/18) and take four bottles a day. You also tried meat (turkey) for the first time. Your pincer grasp is getting SO good! You really like puffs, yogurt melts and lil' crunchies for snacks. Momma gave you a biter biscuit to try. You did a great job, but momma was still too nervous when you were eating it. I think we'll wait for a little while to try it again. You've tried some table food (Ritz cracker, peas, green beans, macaroni shells, mashed potatoes, breadstick, eggs). You seemed to really like the cracker and breadstick, but you weren't too sure about the rest of it. We're still working on the sippy cup.
You LOVE Kahlua. Anytime you are down on the floor, you immediately crawl to her. Unfortunately, I don't think she feels the same way because she always gets up and moves. :-)

This is one of your favorite toys along with the music table!
You have also learned how to reach up for us. But, you only do it when we come to you with our arms out.

You took your first airplane ride and have visited five states now - IL, WI, TN, KY, & AZ!You still LOVE your baths and being outside. Both of those things cheer you up right away! You went on a baby swing at the park for the first time!
You're wearing size 9 months clothes. You are in size 2 diaper during the day and size 2-3 overnight. We are still loving the Pampers overnight and Huggies or Pampers during the day. We'll be transitioning to size 3 when the last few size 2 diapers are gone.
We love you so much and thank God for blessing us with you!

Happy 8 month birthday, Drake!
