I hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas! :) We had a busy week aaaaand Elias and I got sick, but we really enjoyed ourselves anyway. Elias didn't really understand at all this year, and he's kind of afraid of the sound of ripping wrapping paper. Little weirdo. lol. But it was still fun for Ryan and I to get his stocking together and open gifts with him Christmas morning. :) Very special.
I don't feel like we had any big milestones to speak of during month 8. He's still not crawling. Seems pretty content to roll around and get where he wants to go that way. He's so active right now and I feel like it's increasing every day. Can't imagine what it will be like when he is actually crawling. haha! He learned how to clap his hands when we say yay and daddy is working on high fives. :) We're trying to be more intentional about letting him try more solids. He likes tasting the food that we're eating. He really enjoys playing with the other babies and toys in the nursery at church on Sundays. I love that he's a friendly little guy, and hasn't had any separation anxiety yet. He just loves to be with other people, and doesn't really care who it is. :)
That's about it! Here are some pictures of month 8 with our goober boy! :)
So handsome! I love that his hair is getting so long!
Trying to stay warm during a cold night out for dinner. :)
Hanging out with his cousin/BFF Derek. <3
Enjoying some beans and guac at a local Mexican restaurant. Looks like he took a selfie. haha.
Happy morning boy! :)
Crazy hair during bathtime. :)
