8 Months Old!

Where, oh where is the time going? I cannot believe that you are 8 months old Connor Francis! You have grown and changed so much this month. I think first and foremost you are a WIGGLE WORM! You are nosy as can be and into absolutely everything! It is quite amusing to be honest - and you are just as happy as can be. You have a bit of a stubborn streak coming out and you still get cranky when you are hungry and tired (but let's be honest - who doesn't?!). Other than that you screech, scream and giggle in delight most of the day. You are a total flirt (heaven help us when those girls starting calling you!!) and you have completely stolen our hearts. You have started eating some fruits this month - you love blueberries, bananas and pears. You have also started eating avocado and we think you are a fan of that as well! You are sitting like you have sat your whole life and you LOVE it! You just did it one day while we were in Michigan and you haven't stopped since, you have also started facing out in your stroller - you are just such a big boy. In addition to sitting, you can go from sitting to laying on your tummy and you are a little too proud of yourself. Granny bought you some new "developmental toys" and you ave so much fun stacking your cups and gnawing on them :). You have started tilting your head to the side and smiling and it is about the cutest thing we have ever seen. I have a feeling you are going to use it to your advantage here in the near future, but we still love you anyway! Your grasp is amazing - you grab everything and I mean E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! We have realized you have a love for the finer things in life as you have been trying to paw of Nana's tennis bracelet and Grandpa's watch. Your grasp is incredible and you just grab at everything you see. Sometimes we watch you as you are sitting with something you want just out of your reach and you have look of fierce concentration on your face - we just see your brain working trying to figure out how you are going to get it. You are getting so close to crawling and you "stealth army crawl" when you want to find a new spot. You turn all around and scoot, but we feel like we never see you doing it! We joke that if we had a blanket that covered the room, you would still manage to be just off of it :) You are starting to wave "bye-bye" the motion, we don't think you know it's for bye-bye or hello yet. You started giving "kisses" a few weeks ago - more of a mouth open snuggle with our chins - but I think it's adorable! You are still a little snuggle monster and you are the absolute joy of our lives.
Attempt #1...
Attempt #2...
Attempt #3 - the third and final :) He was clearly too interested in the paper to leave it be to get his picture taken :)

We couldn't love you anymore than we do! Can't wait to see what you get into this next month!

I can't believe he's so old! I think that you just wanted 3 pictures with 3 different outfits? How many pictures did you REALLY take? :)
