Month eight was chock full of adventures, milestones, and sickness. In month 8, week #1, you caught what we thought was a cold. You ran a fever and had a snotty nose. You were whiny and altogether just not happy. It lasted for about four days and then you were back to your spunky self.

In week #2 you were much, much better so you went with Mama and Daddy on your first REAL vacation. We went to Savannah and to the beach at Tybee Island! You loveddd the beach so much. You were truly in awe as you just soaked in every sound, every breeze, every new texture, every smell.
You started crawling “for real” on this trip, as in up on all fours. Wanna know why? BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T WANT THE COLD SAND TO TOUCH YOUR BELLY. Truth. You felt it for all of five seconds and that’s al it took to get that belly to lift off of the ground. You’ve been crawling like this ever since. (Unless of course you are in turbo speed. In which case you resort to your old method as it is apparently much faster.)
All was well and wonderful and then….
Week #3 brought the flu. It broke my heart to see you so very sick. You felt so terrible. You couldn’t keep anything down (or in you, for that matter) and you didn’t do much of anything but lay around. Which, we ALL know is NOT like you in any way. Don’t do that often, Buddy. Mama can’t take it.
I suppose this was your first true “sickness” as the cold you caught earlier was more than likely teething. We realized this when in week #4 of month eight you cut your two front teeth! I’ve been trying to get a picture of them, but so far this is the best I could do:
Which brings us to month #9. We have bigger and better plans for this month. You started walking with your walk-behind walker for “real” this month. Since then you have pretty much taken to walking with your music table. I don’t know why, but you think this method is way cooler.
