Little Will: 8 Months!

Another month has come and gone and I cannot believe this little peanut is 3/4 through his first year! It's just plain crazy how fast the months fly by. Will's 8th month has been such a joy! He changes daily and always has new tricks to surprise us with. He seriously is the happiest little guy.

Right after he turned 7 months, his two bottom teeth started to pop through. My mom was the first one to feel them and we were all surprised because he definitely didn't show any distress or typical "teething" signs. Such a little trooper he is. They are still slowly growing in and there are no signs of anymore popping through as of now. I stepped on the scale with him and I'm pretty sure he is almost 18 pounds! I'm anxious to see how much he has grown when we go in for his nine month checkup next month. He is mostly in 6-9/6-12 month clothes right now but is still getting good wear out of some 3-6 month things. I never get tired of picking out his little outfits every day.

No crawling yet, but he definitely is trying to figure out how to move. He's such a little monkey and squirms all over the place. Speaking of monkeys, he cannot get enough of Curious George. He loves that monkey so much! 

Will is still LOVING food. He gets so excited when he sees his baby spoons and the sight of my little Beaba Babycook sends him over the edge. We have a little foodie on our hands and it's been so much fun to introduce him to new flavors. 

After the excitement of Thanksgiving and Christmas, it was nice to spend a lot of time at home in January and the beginning of February. We have had a chilly Winter here in Charlotte and it was nice to spend cozy days inside.

The football spirit continued well after the Christmas decorations were put away. We cheered on the Panthers in the playoffs.

And we wore our orange for the Super Bowl and were Broncos fans for the day. 

We still have a cuddle bug on our hands- he just loves to snuggle. When this little boy is tired, he curls up his body, buries his head and just falls asleep on whoever is holding him. I hope he does this forever.

Towards the end of January, Will got to experience his first snow! I bundled him up for a first snow photo and he just was not impressed. Look at that little eskimo.

The highlight of month 8 was definitely a visit from one of my very best friends! Danica was here for almost a week at the beginning of February and we had the best time. 

It was love at first sight for these two and I hope that William always remembers the moment when she introduced him to Simba. 

A weekend trip to Boone was a perfect little getaway. We got to see my sister, and show Danica around our favorite North Carolina mountain town. I told Mark that Will was going on his first college visit, and that he would know in his heart that becoming a Mountaineer is his true calling! AppState forever!

It's been the most wonderful month and I still am in awe that it just keeps getting better.
We are beyond blessed to call this little lovie ours. He definitely makes our hearts SO FULL. 

Happy 8 months, little one!
