8 months!

Cayden has changed soo much this past mont!! Just before Cayden turned 71/2 months he crawled for the first time and hasnt slowed down since. At first he was a little slow and shakey but man he is everywhere, it is so much fun! Poor Cayden had his first really bad what we think was a stomach bug this past weekend...he wanted nothing to do with food..and when I mean nothing I mean he didnt eat anything but pedialyte for 3 days. It was stressfull and no fun but man is he making up for what he lost because he has been drinking alot!
Cayden has been standing too!! He has to be holding on to something and we stay close but he loves standing up...I think because its a whole new perspective for him..

Cayden has been turning into a little cuddle bug and is always resting his head on our chest...I LOVE it...he has never really been one to cuddle so I am taking advantage of this stage because I am not too sure how long it will last =)
Cayden loves to explore and has found a few favorite things that never seem to grow old (if only he felt that way about his toys)..I guess I cant blame him since the toys are for newborns so today we gave in and gave him a christmas present early =) Anyway....there is a book shelf next to my parents piano and he always always goes over and pulls everything he can reach out and try to eat all the piano papers...and apparently he wants to learn Spanish

Mike and I have way too much fun with our little guy...

The day Cayden turned 8 months was pretty fun...we tried to give him baby puffs a couple weeks ago and even with breaking them up he always started to choke so we tried that night and he ate them great and loved them...but the fun thing was he picked one up and made it into his mouth..ok maybe not that big of a deal but for some reason it was for me..and then it was time to eat so my dad said he would feed him and Cayden randomly reached up his hands and held the bottle for the first time! He hasnt been too fond of it but has done it a few more times..

He really isnt our little baby anymore..

It does seem funny to talk about our babies feeding themselves....but it is a big deal! Yes, take advantage of all the cuddles! Someday he'll be too busy to do it. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
