Eight Months

Austin is a week shy of the 8 month mark- and oh my sweet Lord has he progressed this past month. During his eighth month, Austin became very curious and a crazy fast crawler. He learned to pull up onto just about anything within reach and then use that same object to hold onto while walking around. The doctor told us he was too young to be pulling up and starting to walk- to which my sassy mind replied, "umm... what am I supposed to do about it, lady? Austin, please sit back down? Knock him down? Tape him to the ground?" He moves, and he moves fast. He can only stand being at ground level for so long before he gets bored and stands up to see what's going on in the world above.
In addition to crawling, pulling up, and feeding himself pieces of food- he has picked up a couple of new habits in the past week. If I put him down to do dishes or laundry (or go to the bathroom God forbid), he crawls at lightning speed towards me "mmming". He is an expert at the "m" sound. Mama will be his first word, no doubt about it ;) He also runs his tongue over his new tooth (yes, tooth!) and licks his little chops. It's the funniest thing, you'd think the kid just chowed down on a burger the way he licks his lips. He is a champ when it comes to going out to eat, he is a polite guest and these days he rarely loses his marbles mid meal (awful Longhorn flashback you can read about here.)
Grandmommy, grandpa, and Peach are coming to visit this weekend! Austin's doing backflips into his bottle- sweet babe loves visitors.

Have a great weekend lovelies!
