Jack is 8 months old

Wow, this past month has flown by! I think we've done something fun every weekend this summer, and it's wearing me out. Literally. I've been sick the past few days- first I caught a cold, then I got an ear infection, then I got a stomach virus, and on top of that my top teeth are coming in! Mommy or Daddy always seem to get sick at the same time I do too... I guess they are doing it to be nice. Anyways, that isn't very exciting to talk about.

No regular doctor's visits this month- just the sick visit recently to get my ears checked out. Luckily there are no shots involved with that. I did find out I weigh almost 20 pounds! I bet I'm almost halfway to Daddy's weight!

Here I am on my first visit to a zoo:

Zoo's are cool! Oh yeah, I am no longer doing the army crawl- I am full on crawling.  You can't stop me now! I also figured out how to pull myself up. One day I was stuck in my crib and I grabbed onto the bars, and the next thing you know I am stuck standing up and Mommy had to come help me down. I guess that's still a problem; sometimes I can't figure out how to sit back down. Ha ha.

I've tried a few new foods lately. I like most things that I try, but I'm not a big fan of having to eat with my fingers. It's sooo much easier when Mommy and Daddy feed me with a spoon. They keep trying to get me to eat for myself but I just don't want to! Is that so bad?

My new favorite word is "bah". I like to repeat it over and over and over again. I hear Mommy and Daddy trying to get me to say other things, but I don't really understand them so I am just going to keep saying "bah bah bah bah".

I guess that's all I got for now. I am sure I will have a lot of adventures to tell you about next month. See you then!


  1. He is getting so big! And those eyes are amazing! Too cute!

  2. I love the last picture! Also I agree with Heather that he is getting big. But I want to add I think he needs to slow down, he can't grow up that fast!

  3. Jack just surprises us every day!! and you're right Heather - those BIG BLUE eyes -- all the girls at daycare must be chasing after him !!! The last picture above will have to re-surface when Jack's a teenager !!! HA!!.. or maybe he's crooning a tune ???
