A Very Belated 8 Month Update

As I type this, Wyatt is actually closer to 9 months than 8, but I owe it to him and to myself to do a little update!

Wyatt is still an overall happy baby.  Not that I have much basis for comparison, but he truly is an "easy" child and with the rare exception of a little cold or sickness he has a great temperament and pretty much only gets fussy when he is tired.  He is very independent and will sit and play with his toys for 20-30 minute stretches - often he becomes so engrossed with his toys that he will just ignore us trying to play with him.  (And he's stubborn when he knows you want his attention) 

Although Wyatt loves most of his toys, his favorite things are non-toys: cell phones, keys, water bottles, paper, and coasters specifically.  I learned my lesson the hard way a few weeks ago on making sure my cell phone is locked before I ever give it to him -- he somehow deleted the 'phone' function from my iphone!  Thaaaaat was awesome.  He is becoming more and more interested and grabby these days so we really have to be careful as to what is within his reach.

Accomplishments: still "stuck in reverse" on the crawl - he pushes himself backward but can't quite figure out the forward motion yet.  we'll get there!, his new trick is turning on and off his closet light when he's laying on his changing table.  standing up -- although we are always right behind or beside him because he does fall sometimes

Words: same as last month.  hey, mama, dada (he says dada ALL. THE. TIME. and typically only says mama when he's getting upset over something)

Stats: almost 21 lbs, size 3 or 3.5 shoe, size 4 diapers, most of his clothes that fit him are 6-12 months or 12 months depending on the brand.

Likes: fans! (he has re-discovered them lately and loves to see them turned on), bath time (this is a great way to cheer him up if he's grumpy), all his fruits, yogurt melts, his learning table, balls, cell phones, car keys, paper, glow-worm, pacis

Dislikes: diaper changes, getting his coat on (can't wait for summer), getting into his carseat, table food (he is unsure of the texture, I think), tummy time/learning to crawl

Amongst all of the toys that my girls have, their favorite is an empty bottle of cranberry juice!!!

And they totally love phones and keys and remotes and all the other things they shouldn't have:-)

Katie, hey is so cute!! I can't get over how much him and Ellie look alike. They could definitely be siblings!!

Also, I got your comment on Murfreesboro. I thought I had read on your blog that Ben's family lives there. We are excited. It's WAY bigger than where we are now, so that's gonna be fun and I can't wait to get back closer to home!!!

Katie, he is SO CUTE. Honestly, he is truly precious! I love the pictures of him. I can't imagine what it took to get the "phone" function back on your iPhone, though. I'm sure that wasn't fun!
