8 months!

William is 8-months-old today!

  • He has pretty much gotten over his first illness (he's been sick for the last few weeks - snotty nose, cough, fever)
  • he rolls around & spins all over the floor
  • attempts to clap his hands by slapping the top of one hand with the other while raising his arms up & down (does that make sense?)
  • plays peek-a-boo & anticipates where I'll pop up (sometimes he finds me before I can 'surprise' him - he's such a smart boy)
  • pulls himself onto my lap while I'm on the floor
  • turns his head faster than I can wipe his snotty nose
  • sucks air in to talk, so he sounds like his lungs are going to collapse
  • loves splashing in the water (he soaks everything! he doesn't care if the water splashes right in his face either (& I mean a big splash), he just keeps on going w/o batting an eye)
  • leans over while in the sitting position to rest his head on my leg while playing with his toy
  • loves strangers
  • LOVES dogs
  • sticks his tongue out a lot & pants
  • laughs when I kiss & blow raspberries on his neck
  • has 4 teeth
  • says "mama" & "dada" even though he doesn't know what they mean
  • snuggles with me while we nap in my bed (this is a new favorite of mine, though he usually naps in his crib)
  • holds up his arms when he sees me coming to pick him up
  • weighs about 17 lb 12 oz
  • calms down or smiles when I sing to him (a huge bonus for me since I've always been scared to sing in front of others - he's the only person I'll really sing in front of b/c he won't judge me, at least not yet)

I could go on & on - my little guy is such a sweetheart. I love him so much & realize how blessed I am to have him - he's my miracle baby.


  1. 8 months old, I can't believe it Will is getting so big. I love this stage that he is in, they are so fun and playful.

  2. i can't believe it!! it seems like just yday we were doing your maternity pics!! he is such a sweetheart & pretty much the cutest boy ever!!

  3. I can't believe that he is already eight months. He is getting so big. I want to see him again so bad. I can't believe that he does all those things. He has grown up so much since the last time I have seen him

  4. Isn't it wonderful to see the changes he is making? Sounds like he is one happy boy. He looks so sweet. I hope we can see you guys soon! 8 months is a fun age! Take care and we miss you guys!!!
