Bennett-boy is 8 months old today!
(first things first, can we just acknowledge the fact that I'm writing this post on the ACTUAL DAY and not three weeks later? Thank you. I feel like one of those over-achievers right now.)
So, my boy, in honor of 8 months, here are 8 things about you at this age.
1. You are into everything. And I do mean ev.er.y.thing. There's nothing you love more than exploring and getting into something-- it thrills you to no end. I often hear you coming with that lightning-fast army crawl of yours (no hands and knees for you, you do it military-style) and see your little face peeking around a corner, ready for your next escapade into mischievousness.
peek-a-boo, mom, I found you!
4. Mommy is tired.
oops, that one is about me.
I do blame you for it, though, so.....
Good thing you're ridiculously cute.
5. Your eyes are blue, blue, blue. This contributes to the ridiculous cuteness that you possess. How I love those blue eyes, so like your daddy's and your big sister Emma's.
7. You are perfectly chubby and round in all the right places and not one of us can resist you. I could just gobble you up.
Each day with this little man is an adventure and a blessing. Sometimes I still can't believe we have our very own boy! It still thrills me, especially as he gets older and I begin to see more and more of the boy in him.
Happy 8 months, Mister Bennett, we love you to bits and pieces!
