Eli is 8 Months!

I am so behind on Eli's 8 month post.

I tried taking pictures the other day and it is getting harder the older he gets. Don't get me wrong it is getting so FUN the older he gets. I spend the whole time cracking up. He is moving, moving, moving and never wants to sit still.

Here are some pictures from our monthly photo session. He fell off the chair twice and I caught him in mid air. Just some of my stellar mom moves.





Eli is in size 3 diapers and wears 6-12 month clothes.

He is a big eater and is extremely active.

He crawls everywhere and is into everything.

He is still a great sleeper at night. He goes to bed around 7:30 and wakes up around 6:00 or 6:30.

He "talks" all the time. Well yells at us. If we do something he doesn't like he definitely lets us have it with his voice.

He is the happiest most laid back baby. EVERYBODY comments on how laid back and "chill" he is. I like to say he gets this from me, when we all know it is straight from Luke.

Eli's favorite thing has always been watching his dad play the guitar, and I've figured out when he is fussy it is the best thing to get him happy again. He loves to "play" it.

I got a video of him doing it last week:

He is so stinking cute and I swear you can tell through pictures that he is mellow and funny. What a cutie! Now I might have to stop reading your blog because my baby fever is getting out of control.

LOVE!! My fave is that little grin where he squinches his eyes closed. Precious! Also, big fan of the belly overlapping the pants ;) Love a belly on a baby. Just wish mine was as cute!
