Month Eight

Month eight.... I don't even know how it is possible we are here so soon.  I feel like there is so much I have been meaning to do that just hasnt made the cut this summer.  We haven't been able to go do anything as a family,  I hope Nick hasn't felt left out while Leavitt and I adventure together.

My sweet little LW,
You're eight months old and my very best friend.  We have been enjoying our summer going here and there, making memories, and laughing at the little things.  You can wave and say "hiiiii", you like to high five, you are more vocal and gab your way through the day.  You go to bed between 7-8 but you cry for the first 5 minutes which kills me.  You really like cheesy potato pouches, fruit and juice but you hate ice cream.  You crawl so fast and can pull yourself to standing on the couch, tables, Grampy's computer on his desk... really anywhere you get the urge up you go.  Lately I have noticed you show off for family and friends by blowing raspberries and waving "Hiiii" to them over and over again.  You are not like that at home just with us or out in public when strangers give you attention its only for people you already know but do not see all the time.  Its so precious and I love it.  You are a baby ninja when I am changing your diaper and you are always a little mad when you have to get into a car seat.

In the past month we've gone back to Pembroke for the horse races.  You got to watch your Great Grampy Bill win a couple races.

We went to Fort Fairfield so you could meet your great aunts and uncles and your great grandmother.  Your Grampy Fred came and stayed with us for a week from Florida.

We went to Bar Harbor and you put your feet in the Atlantic ocean for the first time.

I hope you have enjoyed your first summer as much as I have enjoyed spending it with you.  You have a fun filled fall ahead of you and I am so excited to share my favorite season with my favorite person.  You're growing up so fast, and I am so proud of how strong, good natured and smart you are.  I don't want to hold you back but as you gain more independence I only hope that when I try to snuggle a little longer or hold you while you sleep, kiss your little face a dozen times and lay down for naps with you that you still let me.  I am not ready to let go of my precious little infant baby even if you are getting bigger, stronger, faster everyday.

I love you precious little man I can't wait to see what the next month brings, just try to take it easy on Mama when you get up on those little feet one day and take off on me.
