Benjamin turned eight months on December 17th, his sister's birthday.
He will have an official stats check at his 9 months check up next month. At his sick baby visit last week he weighed 17 lbs. I'm eager to know his height and how he's grown. With the massive hands and feet and long fingers on this kid, I wonder if it is a prediction of his size at all or if he's just a little lanky in those areas.
He has started doing so much this month:
Finger foods: Avocado, banana, oat cereal, apples, cheerios
Real deal, fast as all get out, crawling
Pulling up on some things
More vocal than ever and imitating everything we do
Waving Bye Bye
Snapping his fingers

I really don't mind it though. Love the little one on one time with my buddy.
Excuse my geekness. I've been playing on pic monkey and figuring out how to create little things like this:
