Buddy Boy at 8 Months

Sweet babykins is 8 months old.
 And, wow, is he ever busy!  Between log rolls and lurchy crawls, he can flat travel a room.  And as of yesterday, he can pull himself up to a standing position.  He is so very ready to chase his brother around!
Still no teeth, but Buddy Boy is a great eater!  He nurses 5-6 times a day, drinks two supplemental bottles, chows down on solids at lunchtime, and has a snack at suppertime.  Whenever he figures out that food is coming his way (the nursing cover, the bottle, the highchair tray, etc.), he pumps his legs and squeals and swings his fists around.  Currently, he is loving cooked apple slices and steamed asparagus stalks.  And I think he'd eat a whole jar of sweet potato puffs, if I let him.
I love watching his ever-changing eyes turn different colors.  I think they're headed toward the Mister's chocolate brown, but right now, they're a mix of navy blue, green, gold, and caramel.
He is such a good sport about changes in his routine, just going with the flow, napping in the stroller or Ergo, if need be, enjoying all our activities on his own little level.  As long as he's with us, he's happy!  Now, if he gets left in a room alone, that's a different story...  :)
He's a good little baby and he's our sweet Buddy Boy.

Happy 3/4 of a year, babypie!

I'll bet you he is going to skip the crawling stage for the most part. Both of mine did and with him pulling himself up already I think he will also. He is such a cuttie pie. Can't wait to see you in the ham next month.

Oh, I just want to hug him. And it sounds like he and Ramona may have similar personalities. So looking forward to meeting him -- and seeing all of you -- in just a month, now!
