Dude is 8 Months!!!

Dearest Dude,
You are 8 months old today!  We still love you to the moon and back.  Even when you act like this-
  1. You are now a crawler.  An army crawler, if you will. Just because your torso isn't up in the air doesn't mean you can't swiftly get from point A to point B.  Point B usually being something we don't want you to have.  The other day you ate A & D ointment.  Dude, don't you know that stuff is bad for you?
  2. You sleep with your feet crossed.
  3. You have 3 1/2 teeth.
  4. You are a great swimmer and LOVE the pool.  You're a total nudist though.  Half the time you swim at mammy's butt naked! 
  5. Here is the puppy doggy paddling!
  • You have not nursed since 7:00 Sunday morning.  I can tell by the way you look at me sometimes (and pull on my shirt) that you miss it, but I promise it's hard for me too!  Hang in there bud.
  • You consistently say DaDa.  Which is totally not fair, but your daddy eats it up!
  • I'd say your favorite is GaGa though.  I guess you were "born this way."
  • Today was a pretty big day for you.  You rode in the front of a grocery cart by yourself & ate a piece of biscuit for the first time.  You weren't too sure about the biscuit though!
  • You take 2-3 naps a day. 
  • You used to look right at strangers and smile real big, but now you have to get to know them for a minute before you start cheesing it up!
  • Scooter will kiss you right in the face.  Which leads to you making a repulsive face, all of us hollering at him, and him running to his kennel.  He also loves to lick your toes, which pretty much has the same results.  Despite his sweet licks, he's a great brother and very protective of you!
  • This past Sunday you went to the church nursery for the first time.  This was a big step for you, momma, and daddy. 
  • Your hair is red and your eyes are blue, but the hue changes to whatever outfit you're wearing.
  • You squeal really loud sometimes.  It's your new trick!
  • Mammy asks at least once a week when she can feed you table food.  I promise, not too much longer dude!
  • You are loving your garage sale toys!  Which makes momma give daddy "I told you so" looks:)
  • Your new favorite book is baby elephant.
  • You are so loved by your family, especially Tia, Zack, and "Uncle Case."
  • Almost every diaper change, I kiss your belly and you laugh hysterically.  It's the sweetest.
  • I am just now to the point where I can leave you for a little while without obsessing.  I have realized that it is o.k. to be away from you & that it's good for us to get away from each other from time to time. 
  • All of us have so much fun watching you grow and learn!  I am so blessed to see your smiling face every morning.  We love you dude!
Stay tuned for dude's first birthday plans.  I have finally picked out a theme!
