8 Months Old

Yesterday, Charlie turned 8 months. I can't believe how fast he's growing...








His favorite way to sit is with his feet crossed in front of him. He's not crawling or even rolling much, but has started to lunge forward from sitting onto his stomach only when highly motivated by one of his two favorite toys... a remote control or a cell phone. :) He loves being around people and will sit and watch people for a long time. No signs of stranger anxiety yet...

He has started blowing raspberries and sticking out his tongue ALL the time. In fact, the other day I had to defend him from a Kroger cashier who was sure he had purposely stuck his tongue out at her!!!

He is the best eater around- loves every food he's tried and even gulps down medicine when necessary. He is not the best sleeper around, but oh well, I guess nobody's perfect. :) He usually sleeps pretty well until about 5 am when he wakes up crying and still sleepy and takes anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour to settle back down. He is a creature of routine and habit and I can pretty much set my clock by his waking/sleeping patterns. When we're away from home for a night, everything goes haywire!
He has started leaning forward in my arms to give me what I consider a hug... it is just the sweetest thing. He has two little teeth on the bottom and his hair is growing so much I am considering cutting it soon. He is still a complete drool-bucket and goes through about three bibs a day! He still melts us with his belly laugh and steals our hearts with his smiles... Happy 8 Months, Charlie!!!
