My sweet little Oliver will be eight months old this weekend. He isΒ crawling at full speed, stomping around the house with ourΒ help, picking food up fromΒ the table, and drinking from his sippy cup. His favorite foods are sweet potatoes, eggs, almond butter, and tangerines. He had his first lick of chocolate over the weekend and boy did he like it. He loves going to music class, eating noses, sucking his two fingers, splashing in his ducky tub, facing forward in the carrier, snuggling withΒ his puppy, and examining the contents of waste baskets. He hates the snot sucker, getting strapped into his high chair, and having his diaper changed. He definitely has that Y chromosome because he loves to bang and destroy things. He is at the 10th percentile for his weight and 75th for height. He wakes up about half the time at night. I love him to pieces and I still can’t believe that we MADE him.Β Being his mom is the greatest joy of my life.
