My baby!


Just had to let you know that Z is 8 months old, 21 pounds and is 2'5" tall now forcing him to wear 18 month old clothes. He is officially crawling...everywhere! He pulls himself up to stand on anything stable or not! He also signs the word "more" in the right context! Usually he signs for more food, but this morning he wanted his little guitar to play more and signed to us! We're having so much fun with him. He gives me zerberts on my belly. He gives kisses (making the 'mwah' sound). He says "Boo" (our dog) and "Oggie" for doggy. He sings with Daddy when they play the piano together and he dances anytime he hears music or thinks a happy thought. He pretty much wears his feelings on his sleeve, which thankfully are generally happy.

His top two teeth are completely broke through, though not very big yet. The lower incisors aren't showing yet. Speaking of teeth we had a contest to guess which tooth would come in first and our winner posted her winnings! Praise God, Z slept four straight hours last night! Usually he eats every 2-3 hours day and night, more when he's teething. He's eating cereal every night along with some sort of fruit and/or vegetable. He actually likes asparagus and spinach which we grind up for him, but his favorite thing in the world to eat is bananas.

I found that my kids would learn one 'word' at a time, and in the beginning it would take about a month for them to learn a new one. Then, each word learned after that takes a little less time than the one before and so on. Keep it up! He'll be signing letters before you know it! :)
