Yesterday me and Mommy came to Winston to celebrate Pawpaw retiring. He has worked for the Sheriff's Department for 23 years. We all went to a breakfast to honor him Friday morning. Everyone was able to make it except Uncle Kory and Uncle Kent because they both had to work.

So tonight I finally figured out this whole crawling thing...well kind of. I am staying low to the ground like an army soldier and moving right along. Mommy and Daddy were so shocked and excited at the same time once I started moving all around the floor. I am now officially into everything that is low on shelves and tables. Ohhhh - the fun I plan to have!!!
Over this past weekend, Mommy and Daddy pulled out this super cool shopping cart cover that allows me to sit in the cart while they shop(well Mommy shops while Daddy walks around)! I LOVE it! It is soooo much better than sitting in the hot car seat all the time! I looked around at everyone and smiled at them too! Of course our first adventure out was to Target - my Mommy LOVES that store! I look like such a big boy sitting up here!

Here is a video of me playing while sitting up. It is so different to play with my toys while sitting up instead of laying down. Pretty cool!!! You can also hear me trying to talk with my sounds a little. I usually stop making sounds as soon as Mommy brings out the camera.
Video was taken on July 21st
Here are my new accomplishments since turning 8 months old:
*I can sit up now! I am getting better at pulling myself back up if I lose my balance, but sometimes I still fall.
*I am just now starting to bring my knees under me to scoot a little. I don't do this all the time though. When I do, it is usually only one knee and only one time.
*I roll ALL the time! I find a toy that I want and I roll to get there! I am really good at it too!
*I am able to grab toys even when I can not see them. My peripheral vision is awesome!
*When I am on my belly I like to kick my legs and arms - it looks like I am trying to swim.
*I can move around in a complete circle while on my belly.
*I can now play peek-a-boo all by myself.
*I like to hold my bottle when there is not much milk left in it. I actually like to hold it from the bottom
*I am still drinking 6 oz of milk and get to eat solids for breakfast and dinner.
*My favorites are mango's and peaches.
*I get very jealous when other people are eating and I can not.
*I still do not have any teeth yet, but I LOVE to gnaw on everything I put my hands on.
*I have become more vocal. I am making the sounds of 'b', 'ba', 'bu', 'd', 'ha', 'hi', 'hu', 'm', 'a', and 'u'. I do not know I am making the sounds - I just do it.
*I LOVE to laugh and smile.
*I am generally a really happy baby unless I am hungry or fighting sleep and tired.
*My eyes are still changing color - light brown with a little green.
*My hair has really started to grow. It is a light brown for now and sticks up.
*I still smile after I sneeze.
*I move around a lot at night while sleeping in my crib. I really like sleeping on my side or belly with my hands under my forehead.
*I am wearing 6-9 month clothes.
*I am in size 2 diapers.
*I still LOVE bath time. I am starting to out grow my bath tub since I am getting so long.
*My acid reflux is the same as last month. I get 2 ml of Prilosec 3 times a day.
*I see Ms. Lisa and Ms. Joan for feeding therapy. I try and go once a week or at least once every two weeks.
*I enjoy going for walks in my stroller.
*I do not like when the sun gets in my eyes.
*I like playing with the telephone and remote.

Over the July 4th holiday, we went to the lake. Grandma, Granddaddy, Uncle Skip, Aunt Trisha, Jarrett, Brian, Melissa, Logan, and Austyn were all there. It was too hot outside for me to be out for long periods of time. We had a great time being together. I hope you all had a great holiday. Here are just a few pictures of us there.
