This little guy is 8 months old! He is growing up SO fast! We're trying to tell him (and his big bro) to slow it down, but it's not happening. :) Oh they're so big and FUN!
Here are some of Next Edition's (NE) current loves :)
Crawling!! He is crawling! He has been crawling since just before he was 7 months old. He'd hop up on his lil knees, scootchalittle, throw himself forward, then hop back up to his knees and do it all over again. We love watching him! He is full on crawling now! :) When he gets to the wood floor, it takes quite a feat to get anywhere, it's so slippery. But he is DETERMINED. If he wants to do something, go somewhere, get to something, he will. We love it!
Eating. He's Mama's baby :) haha. I mean Daddy likes to eat, but Mommy loves to eat. ha! He loves all of his fruits and veggies he's had so far. We do the four day wait in between foods and he is just eating like a champ. He loves puffs too, and sometimes laughs when we bring out the container for a snack. He has 4 breastmilk feedings and eats 2 solid meals a day (with a 3rd added sometimes if he is SO hungry. I understand. :))
Sleeping. He's still a great sleeper! He takes two naps a day for 1 1/2-2 hrs (sometimes less, he gets too excited if he knows people are over or if we are out and about). He sleeps from about 7:30 pm to 7:30 am. He is a flexible little guy. He can miss naps and still be the happiest little bug, he just loves to be held even more, sweet baby. :)
Mommy! He's been on a big Mommy kick! He still goes to others, enjoys the nursery at church (and starts to smilecry when he sees us! he remembered how much he missed us :) so cute and funny, we can't help but smile and laugh a lil too, BabyBoy did the same thing!) and playing with friends but if he sees me he wants me, sweet love (it's not just because I'm his source for food! ha). He's starting to get past it more and more, and we still pass him around as much as we can so he'll continue to be his little social butterfly self, but I do love extra cuddles :).
Big Brother! He also ADORES his big bro. He smiles right when he sees him. He loves when BabyBoy talks and sings to him. Next Edition starts talking to BabyBoy and waits for him to say something back and then smiles a huge grin when he does. Ahhhh amazing boys :)
Toys. He doesn't have any toys that he HAS to have. He enjoys playing with pretty much anything we throw in front of him :). He does LOVE playing with my phone sleeve, haha. I have always given it to him when we don't have something else right there. :) He also enjoys the little blue elephant hanging on his carseat too. :)
Pulling up! He LOVES to climb and pull up. He mostly pulls up and climbs up on us but he loves to stand, walk with our help :), and stand against the ottoman and play with anything on top of it. I walked into his room last week and he was standing up in his crib! I couldn't believe it!! He's starting to cruise the ottomans a little bit too. He's starting to really crawl after big bro now too, it is adorable!!
Happy 8 months Lovie, Lovebug, Little Boo, Sweet Love, Deedle!!! Mommy and Daddy love you more than words could ever express!!!
