8 Months Old





Phillip celebrated his 8th month on Amelia's birthday. I love having two kids with birthdays on the same day of the month. It was so cold and windy all weekend and even yesterday that I finally gave in and took his pictures inside. I had a huge plan to get both kid's photographed at the same time. Maybe soon! I found this cute fabric at the store last week commemorating "Golden Books." It was used as the backdrop! If anyone reads the Pioneer Woman website, she recently offered some Photoshop Elements actions for free. I had a great time trying them out. On to Phillip:

On our home scale he weighs about 17 pounds now. He is about 26.5 inches in length. This little guy loves to laugh, smile, and especially being held by Mommy. He is going through some attachment phases now, the eye procedure exacerbated his need for Mommy. He loves to give big juicy kisses and grab my face and neck then burrow. When put on the floor he manages to wiggle in circles and scoot backwards with his arms. He pretty much hates tummy time, sitting is much cooler. Phillip is a great eater. He is now eating three meals a day and nursing 4-5 times per day. Lately, he is becoming more adept at eating finger food like cheerios and soft bananas. Just this very morning he said "ma-ma-ma" during his breakfast. I think he was tyring to say num-num but ma-ma was easier. This kiddo is really ticklish. In the past week he started to play with his toys a little differently. He now bangs them together and mimicks the sounds. I showed him how to bang pegs on the toy bench and he about laughed his head off. Justin says Phillip is a "fuzzy little guy." Amelia loves to dance with Phillip. Me?, he is such a fun little baby. I enjoy every minute.

Hey, could you email me any sweet pics you have of your mom and Dad? Also, I need one of Jeremy (I ahve one of Jared that's cute, but I want one of Jeremy that isn't...serious lol...) I'm making a collage on the wall of family photos, and I got some from your websites, but I couldn't find any (not patient enough). Also, send me your favorite one of your family. Love you!
