Lots and lots of things happening over the past few months. He's sitting, scooting backwards, and is working on getting four teeth. He also just started sleeping better! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluiaaaaaaaaaaa! It's like a switch flipped just as soon as he hit 8 months (on July 19). It's like he just decided, yep, I'll sleep a little bit now. Thank the Lord! It is awesome to sleep! He'll go to bed at 7, and wake once, then sleep until around 6. Aaaaaagh!
The other milestone that we're working on is food. This child will put anything in his mouth but food! And if you put food in there, he makes an awful face and spits it out. Doesn't matter what texture it is. I've tried solid steamed little pieces of things, mashed things, . . . . it doesn't matter. I even tried a momsicle (breastmilk popsicle) and that little stinker wouldn't eat that! And he drinks the stuff all day every day! Go figure.
And he's doing really cute stuff like laughing at things that he thinks are hilarious, like this: (for some reason, this town is plagued with flies and every time we open the back door to use the grill or the smoker, they infiltrate, and I go to work eradicating them):
Love this little guy!
