Levi at 8 months :)

Dear Levi,
Happy 8 months!  Well I suppose I should say Happy Belated 8 months, considering you will be 9 months just after the New Year.  You are changing so much and as each day passes, it seems you are getting farther and farther away from that baby stage.  You are motoring all over the place ... crawling from room to room, scooting after the dog, and moving in the direction of whatever it is you want.  Your newest trick is pulling up to standing and you are getting really good at it too.  It won't be too long before you'll be off and running.  With all these changes taking place, I'm reminded just how fleeting the baby stage is.  You are growing up way. too. fast.  

My favorite part about this age is all the babbling you do.  I love hearing you "talk," especially when you say "ma ma."  Melts my heart.  You are also saying "da da", "ba ba," and the latest and your first word (already?!?!?!) is "ball."  Go figure.

You've recently started eating some table foods and seem quite happy to be "eating" like the rest of us.  Because you only have two teeth, we've only given you small bites of mushy, soft foods.  You like bananas, pancakes, waffles, veggie puffs, and baby crackers.  Along with some table food, you are still enjoying the basic baby food too.  Much like your big sister, you eat almost anything ... and we love that!

I'm pretty sure you will be just like your Daddy. Handsome and tall.  You are wearing size 12-18 months and Size 4 diapers!  What a big boy, just growing and growing and growing.  You are sleeping well for us, in fact often times you put yourself to sleep.  You like to be rocked but only for a few minutes.  Self soothing is a beautiful thing! :)

You are such a happy, easy going baby.  Your smile brightens up the room and your laugh is contagious.  Cuddling with you and kissing your sweet cheeks makes me one happy Mommy!  I love you so much Little Man! :)
