8 Months

No, you didn't miss the 7 month didn't happen. Yep, I dropped the ball last month, but DID get his 8 month comparison picture done! I did get some 7 month pictures taken...just not the comparison picture. Oh well.

Anyway, here it is: Aiden at 8 months!


I found a new spot to take the pictures. In the "keeping room" downstairs. It's also called a hearth room in other regions of the country. There's some good morning light that comes in and I pulled the comforter and pillows downstairs to do these pictures.

Since it's downstairs, I have the added distractions of dogs, big brother and toys. Not really bad, especially when you see the look of joy on his face when Aiden sees his big brother! They love each other so much! Colten had come over and dropped this Thomas train on the blanket for Aiden to play with...Aiden was in the middle of his joyful screech when this picture was taken. :-)


Aiden is now scooting around a lot. You can't really tell by the pictures I chose for this post, but he was really making it hard to get pictures without blur! He kept rolling over and scooting towards me. He really wanted to play with that black thing that Mommy always has in front of her must be fun if she's always playing with it!

Aiden has a few more teeth than last month. As of today, he has 8 with another coming in. He had 5 teeth pop through in 1 week and then the next week, another one popped through. It's been rough...let's just leave it at that.


This picture was a harder one. He's not too sure of the wood floors, or at least he wasn't when this was taken. You can't tell that by the picture though...but he used to not scoot out of the living room since it was surrounded by wood floors. Today, he made it all the way over to the foyer. Note to self: clean off baby gate and have it handy to put at the bottom of the stairs.


Aiden doesn't crawl regularly yet. He gets up on his hands and knees and then falls back down to scoot. Who knows what he's going to end up doing. Some kids do that and go straight to walking. We'll see in due time. All I have to say is that it's nice not having to chase him around yet. Colten was walking at this age...yes, WALKING!




This little boy is usually so laid back and easy going! Lately, he's been cranky and clingy. I know it's just a phase resulting from his teeth and maybe a little virus that he's picked up from somewhere (or someone???).

Aiden is also a little piggy. He's really interested in table foods and has had a few things like grilled cheese, quesadillas, mac n cheese and homemade soup, along with his Cheerios, Puffs, and Baby Mum Mums. When Aunt Paula watched him one day, he ate a whole container of baby food along with a whole grilled cheese sandwich. I don't know where he put it...but he also nursed after that!


Yep, we love this little boy. He has two older brothers to annoy and be bossed around by. His Daddy has gotten to see him scoot around the living room and hear him babble from half way around the world. His Mommy is so glad she has her 3 is good!
