Happy 8 months!

Happy 8 months!
Pictures were difficult this month because you are a boy on the go and don't have time to sit still.

All I can say is, what a little joy you are!  You have finally been healthy for about a week now, you haven't been healthy this long in a row since before Christmas.  You have been even happier, if that is at all possible.

You are eating more solids, you are up to avocados, bananas, squash, carrots, peas pears, and green beans.  You are taking a bottle 4-5 x day.  We just started introducing formula to you this past month.  
Sleep is still an issue occasionally. As long as you are healthy, you sleep through the night, but when you're sick you get up anywhere from 1-5x/night.  You still never took to your paci.
You are wearing a size 3 diaper and size 9-12 month clothes.   You probably weigh about 17 1/2 pounds.

You say, "Da da" and "blah, blah, blah".  You can wave and clap.
You love riding around and being carried in the Moby.  For some reason, the nick name The Beckster has started to stick.  
You still absolutely adore your brother and think he is the funnies thing you have ever seen.  He always makes you laugh.

You're not quite crawling, yet, but you're very close, you're army crawling.  
You've started showing a little separation and stranger anxiety.  I pray that it doesn't get as bad as what Hudson's was. 
You still have beautiful blue eyes.

You travel very well and usually fall asleep very quickly when we're in the car.  
We love you so much!  You're such a sweet little blessing!  We believe God has big plans for you.
We love you!

Another Winter Storm

Last week we were hit with another storm and got 17" of snow.  17"!!!  Lexington is not equipped to handle that much snow and EVERYTHING was closed down.   Until the end of February, we were actually having a really mild winter, but then everything changed.
We had plenty of play time.  
Brian and Hudson built an igloo.

Our neighbor let us borrow his snowblower

We're ready for Spring!  Thankfully it's going to be 65 degrees today!  Yay!  Go away winter!
