Felix is 8 months old today. Just like all the other passing months, we can hardly believe he is growing so fast right before our eyes. Our little baby is no longer that little (23lbs. 11 oz.) -- he is becoming more of an independent boy every day. We struck gold with this kid. And Dustin said the sweetest thing the other day as we were trying to find the right words to explain how Felix has changed recently. He said, "I think he is starting to love us back". Isn't that sweet? It's so true...he is starting to behave in a way that says I love you guys and I think I will keep you! Of course we LOVE this new developement to pieces. My knees almost buckle on a daily basis when I look at him and he looks back at me in a way that communicates affection and sweetness for his mama. Oh man, it's the greatest thing ever. I can hardy come up with complete sentences just thinking about it. Once again, we struck gold with this amazing 8 month old boy.
Here are some highlights from the last month:
Two new teeth have emerged in the front. Big ones...just like his mama!
He's doing a little bit of army crawling. Just a little. We NEED to babyproof pronto.
Good times (messy times) with solid food and drinking from a cup.
He has a new appreciation for books. The page-eating is starting to decrease.
Happy 8 month birthday, Felix Augustus!
May the longtime sun shine upon you.
