Xander at 8 months


I can't believe our baby is 8 months old! He actually was 8 months last week. It is amazing to me how much he has changed in the last month. He has been changing quickly since he was born but it seems the number of changes this last month have been the most obvious and the biggest. He is not crawling yet but he does an army crawl on his belly by pulling himself forward with his arms. He can move pretty fast! Also, he can roll just about anywhere! He rolls all over and very fast. He can roll across the room in less than a minute! The other thing he just started doing is pulling himself up to a sitting position from being on his belly or his back. He just started doing it a day or two ago but he can do it anytime he wants and does it several times a day now! It seems like he will crawl the 'right' way pretty soon, I assume in the next few weeks. He can get up to all fours and he rocks back and forth like that but has yet to actually crawl that way. He still doesn't really put much weight on his legs so standing and pulling himself up seem a ways away yet. But you never know, sometimes kids seem to learn new things overnight! He still has no teeth yet but I am hoping one pops through one of these days!

Here are a few pics I took the day he turned 8 months. He is looking more like a toddler every day and less like a baby!

Very cute pictures! He almost looks like a slight red head in those pictures. I know he doesn't in person, but the pics look like it.

I noticed that too. I think it is because of the color of George! His hair does pick that up in some lights.
