I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27

8 months!

Time sure does fly by....hard to believe Gavin is already 8 months old! Here are some pictures and then an 8 month update. :)

sitting like such a big boy!

Precious face

I am 8 months!

Trying to stand up...

always ready to flash a smile. :)
 Since my 7th month update...Gavin has already gotten THREE teeth. The first two came in right after he turned 7 months...the bottom two front teeth. His top left tooth just popped through in the last week, and from what I can tell...the top right tooth is about to come through at any time. He isn't crawling yet, but he's still so close. Always getting up on his knees and rocking like he is about to take off at any moment. He's starting to pull up on things. He sits up great and can sit and play on the floor for hours on end entertaining himself. We've had quite a few instances of separation anxiety...and he definitely prefers his mommy and daddy over anyone else. :) He is still a great eater and we've even tried him on some stage 3 baby food. The stage 3 is more about texture so he's not as smooth as the stage 2. With his teeth that he's getting he can now stand to "chew" his food a bit. We've tried him on Cheerios which he really couldn't care less about....and we've tried the Gerber puffs, but he really isn't wild about those either. He LOVES his bottle and if he sees a bottle he will pitch a fit until you put it in his mouth. LOL. We just love our sweet baby and still can't believe he's 100% ours. Thank you God for blessing us so!
