8 Months

Ty is 8 months old today! And on his Mommy & Daddy's 8 year anniversary. I'm already starting to brainstorm ideas for his First Birthday party. I can't believe it. It will be here before we know it.
Here's what the "Ty Man" is up to:

  • He is crawling all over the place. No more just putting him down in the middle of the living room with toys and walking away. No sir. He goes straight for the things he's not supposed to have and he is FAST.
  • He pulls up on just about anything that stands still. He gets the best "I'm so proud of myself" look when he does it. Usually when go in his room to get him up from naps or bedtime he's standing in his crib and gets the biggest smile on his face when he sees us.
  • I can already tell he's is "all boy" as they say. He bangs on everything. And I mean everything: the table, his highchair, his leg, his toys, my arm when I'm feeding him. The list goes on & on. I think we're going to start calling him "Bam Bam."
  • When we're eating around him, he opens his mouth like a bird and when we don't pay attention to what he's doing or don't give him the food he sees us eating, he gets angry and starts yelling at us. Watch out. He's going to be an eater.
  • He's still enjoying lots of baby food and his 4 bottles a day.
  • We're working on learning the sippy cup. He hasn't quite mastered it, but we're getting there.
  • Still no teeth for him. I can't believe it. With the amount of drooling & hand chewing going on, I would have sworn he would have some by now. You can definitely feel them under his gums. They just haven't quite popped through.
Until next time...
