Eight Months!

This beautiful little man turns eight months old today! He's getting so big and old, where did my baby go?
Over the last week he has made huge strides in the mobility department, with today being the first day he was actually succeeding at an army crawl. Up until this point he has been trying to push himself along with just his legs making minimal progress, but today he realized that pulling with his arms helps!

His hair is starting to get really crazy. We waffle back in forth over cutting it, with days like today being cut it days. But the problem is, I'm not sure how to...any ideas? 
He loves people his own size, babies and even the head of a life size Barbie that he spotted during a trip to Goodwill. Chris was pushing him in a cart, and Otto got excited and started talking to it thinking it was a real person.  Silly boy.

Eating has been a little better, and today he even ate some applesauce off a spoon! Progress! And as evidenced by the bib, he is loving feeding himself. About thirty percent of  what's on his tray makes to his mouth:)
Isn't he nice? Sometimes I just have to squeeze him! (Most of the time he loves it, sometimes he tolerates it.:))
Happy eight months Otto! You're 2/3rds of the way to a whole year!


  1. Time flies by so fast! Don't blink, you'll be celebrating his first birthday! :)
