8 Months Old

This is our makeup picture, cause we couldn't get over to my moms for his picture in the red chair.  I thought this was hilarious!

Benson is 8 months old!  Where does the time go?  He is growing up so fast!  My little baby has started crawling all over the place, climbing stairs, pulling himself up on furniture and just being such a big boy!  He is starting to "talk" like crazy.  He also loves to sing along with Ben and his guitar.  It is the most adorable thing ever.  He has started eating solids all the time and loving it.  He also really enjoys the gerber puffs.  He spent a lot of time at Grandmas house this month and loved it!  We also got to take him to Seven Peaks and even though we were only there for 30 minutes and only went in the wave pool, it was a blast.

Benson is getting sweeter and sweeter by the day.  He does scream when he doesn't get the toy he wants or when he wants his mommy instead of his daddy (or anyone else), but it's just too cute.  He also is starting to point at everything!  He has a little book that makes animal noises that he loves.  We also got him his first iphone app, peekaboo barn.  He LOVES it.  He is still on a great schedule.  He has started going to bed at about 7pm, sleeping til 7am just getting up once in the night to have his diaper changed and a small bottle.  He naps 2x a day and with my work schedule it definitely makes it a lot easier to have him on a pretty set schedule.  He is totally a mommas boy.  If he is with anyone else he is perfectly happy until he sees me or hears my voice.  Then he cries until I pick him up.  I honestly love it, haha.  He also has only just started leaning his little head on my shoulder when he gets tired and it completely melts my heart.  We love this little man just wish time would slow down a tiny bit.
