so i went with orange as the design color of choice for the onesie this month...
always, always love evan in orange :)
& that is his favorite elephant, given to him by cousin paige. (& he does have more than one elephant...) he's fascinated by the string tail. actually any and all strings. which makes me VERY nervous...
and so AT 8 MONTHS, evan...
...continues to sit really well, but doesn't yet crawl - he does however tuck his right leg underneath him and "pivot & scoot" around... he's figuring out mobility minus the crawling. which is ok. :)
...squeals with delight and waves his arms around whenever we get out his "good puppy" book, which was a gift from my friend tracy. best book ever according to evan. although he truly loves all of his touch and feel type books.
...SAYS MOMMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and knows what it means. :) it is still sporadic, but i can usually count on hearing 1 or 2 or 14 impatient-sounding "mamaaaas" over the monitor when i don't get him up from a nap quick enough. or when he loses his paci at 4am. or when i walk out of the room. love that. seriously. love it. :)
...still has just the bottom 2 teeth. which are adorable.
...wants to know where Toby is at all times... and is constantly cranning his neck to peek around a corner and try to get a glimpse of him.
...is starting to wave.
...weighs 22 pounds!
...has adorable baby fat rolls on his wrists and legs. :)
...LOVES pears. is starting to enjoy his biter biscuit cookie. doesnt really get the gerber puffs?!
...loves playing with his blocks. they are such a fave.
...& is totally thrilled when dadda gets home each night.
when people ask how old evan is and i tell them 8 months, the general response is "oh, that is such a great age... so interactive"... and yeah it is... (as declared on the back of his onesie this month!) :)
and the every month teddy pic... so crazy to see the growth with these...
