Teddy is a crawling pro and now follows us from room to room in the apartment. He gets so excited when he crawls around a corner and spots us. He smiles, laughs and crawls at super speed toward us- simply adorable! He stands up on e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. I'm doing my best to encourage more crawling and discourage walking (Dr. V wants babies to crawl for 5 months and we do whatever that baby genius tells us!!!)
He slept for his first 12 hour stretch the other night and wow! It was glorious! We're back to sleeping about 10/11 a night and 3 naps a day so we'll take it! He is eating solid food like a champ and especially loves peanut butter and tortillas (of course! he's our child after all!) He loves bath time more than ever and is a blast to bathe. Teddy loves other babies and we're working on the whole "soft touches" thing because he is especially interested in touching others' eyeballs or pulling hair :)
Teddy is a sweet baby and is developing a funny sense of humor. He loves to rough house, be tickled and play peekaboo. He hit his mouth on a church pew this past week and cried so loud I had to take him out of the meeting (he was fine). Afterwards, multiple people in our ward came up to me and said "I heard Teddy crying and I didn't think he was capable of crying! I've never seen him sad!"
Happy 8 months to our dreamy Teddy Bear!
