This is a little late getting out, but what can I say? My 8 month old is keeping me BUSY! That is exactly the word I would use to describe him at this stage. He is into everything! He is so curious and loves to explore...we're definitely needing to babyproof! I never thought diaper changing could be so difficult - as soon as I lay him down, he wants to roll over and move and see what he can get into. I've discovered that he loves his lotion bottle, so sometimes I can actually get him to be still on his back if he's holding the lotion. He has also starting what I call a "wounded soldier" crawl. He drags his body with one arm, keeping the other arm down by his side. Sometimes he'll even lift his little butt in the air. But, hey, at least he's figuring out how to move and get to things. We've also found that we can actually go out to eat now! We can keep him happy by feeding him puffs, crackers, or any other finger food and he's kept busy trying to bring it to his mouth.
Got him to stay on his back with his favorite bottle of lotion so I can change his diaper! (at least for a few seconds)
Matt and I met at Baylor and started dating in 2000, married in '03, had Reid in '07, and Jace in '09. We are far from perfect, but we are committed to our family, our faith, and our friends, and enjoying the lives we lead!
