Happy 8 months piglet!!! You are a big, BEAUTIFUL boy!!! Joe weighed you this past weekend and you came in at a whopping 24 lbs...I need a crane to help lift your little bum when I'm changing your diapers!!! Ay!!!
You are closer to crawling than ever before, (please note your mother's incredible wisdom and ability to state the obvious...)...you ocassionally say "mama", although I have no illusions that you actually mean me when you blurt it out...just as long as you INTENTIONALLY say mama before dada all will be good...:-) I love you!!!

I just wanted to let you know how much I love being your mom and spending so much of my days with you...You are a joy to wake up with...you see me and smile...you laugh when I eat you...I love all your rolls...your pudgy calves are tempting me constantly...You are growing up so fast...I love you.

To celebrate the arrival of Spring and the fact that I have not actually gone competely insane this past Winter, (see ya!)...O and I made ourselves a little fort out in Pookie's garden...We sang songs, looked up at the endless and very blue sky, squinted our eyes at the sun, had lunch, threw up, (just O!) and touched grass for the first time...What an exciting afternoon! Pookie enjoyed the fort too...Yey!
O is learning to crawl...I "hope" she says selfishly, that he still has a few years to go until he can actually crawl...I'm really NOT prepared for this!!! haha...
He is scooching back and is able to turn 360 degrees quite well...I of course sit and watch him with a smile on my face and the camera in my hand...Oh the joys of being the piglet's mom!!! You can do it O!!!

On Saturday we went to visit dad and grandma...it was a lovely, lovely day...dad was making a ferocious amount of soup for Bo, so I made us a little lunch. We hung out for a while, then Joe, Jeri, O and I all went for a nice long walk. It was a beautiful day...O fell asleep in Joe's new "custom" Babyhawk Mei Tai...and I played a bit with my camera while we trekked and talked!
You are officially 7 months...although February brought us no "30th"...so we were a bit of a loss as to when you actually turned 7 months...What do people who are born on 2/29 do?
You are so close to crawling it literally brings tears to my eyes...not just tears of joy for your development and growth, but tears of panic for your development and growth...What the hell am I going to do when you no longer stay put when I leave you somewhere? What if I go to fold the laundry and then I can't find you? (Note to self...don't ever fold laundry...too dangerous...)...
AND...your two bottom teeth came in...why is everything about you so cute? I haven't managed to take a picture of your teeth yet as you never seem to have your mouth empty of fingers, hands, toys, blankets...but one of these days I'll get them on "film"...
You are eating solids with gusto...makes me so proud! I've been enjoying making you little dinners specially for you...Nothing fancy yet...but today you had chicken for the first time with sweet potato...and you were just devouring it...and saying "MMMM" whenever the opportunity arose...
You are now sleeping soundly...Good night peanut...I love you.
