Mischief Maker

Daddy tries to block me from the cords with pillows and blankets, but I can bust right through now. Nice try, Daddy!

Getting Into Trouble

I can reach Mommy's nightstand now, and there are all kinds of good things up there to grab. I can pull the drawer handle, too. Mommy says "Handles are not for pulling!" but I know that's not true.

Standing by Myself

I can stand up all by myself now, without Mommy or Daddy's help.

Low-budget Hat

Mommy took me out for the first time this year for a stroll along the riverfront walk and to get some errands done. She forget to put a hat on me, and she remembered that babies lose about 25% of their body heat through their heads, so she improvised a hat for me. She doesn't have much of a fashion sense, does she?

Big Girl Seat

Mommy and Daddy took me out grocery shopping early this afternoon. This is the first time I got to sit up in the front of the shopping cart, in my cart cover. It's soft and protects me from the germs on the cart handles. I like looking all around to see what people are doing. They sure do like moving about. There are also a lot of strange and colorful things on shelves and in bins to look at.

Standing Up

I was standing up in my crib yesterday morning, so Daddy had to lower my crib mattress. He had just lowered it a notch just a few weeks ago. It is now the lowest it can go. I still have no problems standing up and holding on to the crib bar.

Lazy Eater

Mommy and Daddy said that I'm big enough to hold the spoon by myself now, but that sounds like a lot of work.

Feeling Much Better

I had to go to a special doctor, and he said that I'm allergic to milk. They poked my skin a little bit, but it didn't bother me and the doctor was really nice. Daddy bought some soy formula, and I've been drinking that for 3 days and feel a lot better. Daddy says it's made out of beans - that sounds weird, but I don't mind. I'll eat anything.

When Babies Attack

8-month Old Monkey!

It's my 8-month birthday! I look like a grumpy monkey, because I had a long couple of days. Mommy and Daddy think I'm allergic to formula, so I have to go to a special doctor tomorrow. I feel better now, but my tummy hurt a lot yesterday and I got very itchy.

Conquering Daddy

I conquered Daddy yesterday. Daddy capitulated with very little resistance!

Playing with Balloons

I like playing with the balloons from the shower that Mommy held for her friend Kate. One of them still floats. Mommy pulled it down so that I could play with it.

Big Burly Bouncer

I like to bounce like a maniac from my toes. Mommy and Daddy are a little concerned I might scramble my brains from all the bouncing. They only let me stay in the bouncer for about 15 minutes a day.

Practicing My Standing

Daddy has to take the picture quick before I fall down, but look, I'm standing!

Super Climber

I just started crawling a month ago, and I'm already ready to take on climbing. Daddy made a box into a step for me to practice on. I'll be on Kilimanjaro any day now!

Duckie Towel

I don't like bath time, but at least I have this cool duckie towel.
