8 Months

Guess I forgot to do Shanes eight month post. Oops! Let me think back.

At eight months, Shane:

-weighed 21 lbs 4 oz and was 27 inches tall
-wears some size nine month clothes and some 12 month
-wears size 2 shoes
-wears size 3 diapers
-has eight teeth
-crawls. FAST.
-pulls up and cruises the furniture
-pretty sure there was a dada and a mama moment.
-walks when you hold his hands
-likes cantelope the best, and thinks cheerios are fun
-exclusively breastfed with fruits and vegetables once in a while to taste and feel
-co-sleeps with Mama and Daddy
-tries to climb your legs
-very verbal. Talk, talk talk talk talk.
-loves books
-loves kitchen utensils. He "helps" me cook and do dishes. As long as he gets a wooden spoon or measuring cup to "help" with, he's happy.
-still LOVES baths. He gets baths either in the kitchen sink or in the big bathtub and has a blast.
-stays with Daddy while I work 3 days a week, and we get the rest of the time together.
-bites. EVERYTHING. Once in a while you can tell he gets mad and bites on purpose; the rest of the time it's just his thing.
-likes to carry things in his mouth like a little puppy dog.
-likes to fly "airplane" or upside down with Daddy.

Shane is Mr. Independent. (wonder where he gets that! lol) He loves to sit on the rug and play with his toys. Half the time if you try to play with him he will ignore you. He is all over the house and trying to get into everything. In the morning when we wake up he will use Nathan or I as a jungle gym. Then he finds my alarm clock and turns on the music. He loves music! In the car, he will growl along with the engine as it shifts. It's too funny. Then he will start talking to his hand.
