His hair started getting longer which makes me think he looks 12 already.

8 months!

8 months

this guy! gosh. he's 8 months today and I wish he would just stay little. he just keeps learning new things and getting cuter and is practically a grown-up. some facts:

-sits up on his own like a champ
-doesn't like fruits and veggies
-rolls to get around when he feels like it
-gets up on his knees and then face plants
-likes practicing waving to himself
-intentionally snuggles now (he has never been cuddly)
-loves splashing
-got his first tooth two weeks ago
-loves pulling hair and chewing on it if he can
-loves being outside and seems to like hikes
-sleeps a million times better
-hates being strapped in to anything
-his eczema is so much better
-likes to drop things
-either has some funny cowlicks or his hair is getting curly
-he's the best

This sweet bird is always trying to grab his shirt and eat it.

(I know this is late and I completely missed week 11! Ugh. Moving.)

First taste of real food, he kept grabbing the bowl and spoon. I think he's a fan.

5 months

this kid has really stolen my heart. the second he hit the 3 month mark he started doing something new and cute practically every day. he's so strong which always makes me worry about him hurting himself. so far he just likes to scratch his head any chance he gets. everyone comments on how alert and curious he is. and he is. since day one has preferred to be held facing out or over the shoulder so he can study everything. he smiles the most when he's naked and laughs the most when it's time for bed but a furrowed brow is his standard. he likes putting things in his mouth and drooling. standing is his preferred position but he tolerates tummy time and sitting. sometimes he acts like he's gonna roll over but then thinks better of it. he has better things to do than eat or sleep, so I spend a lot of my time trying to get him to eat or sleep. waking up 4 times a night is his average, which is much better than that week it was closer to 9. he's mighty handsome and his eyes are turning brown. I don't think I could love him more.

here's a video of him talking to himself cause I just couldn't help myself.

I'd been toying with doing the 52 Project since Boone was born, but I never got around to it. So I figured I'd just start with the new year, and then I still didn't get around to it. I just love the idea of being able to see how this little guy of mine changes from week to week. I've already missed taking pictures of things I don't want to forget so I'm gonna go ahead and start on week 4 cause better late than never, am I right? chairps
