Our not so little anymore Noah turned 8 months old on the 8th. This month he had his second ear infection and a chest x-ray. He had a nasty cough and chest congestion that had gone on long enough that the doctor ordered a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia. He was all clear and was finally able to get rid of the cough after a couple weeks of vapor bath and a humidifier. His second tooth has also come in. His little grin looks a lot different now that he has teeth. He doesn't look like such a baby anymore.
He also had his first trip to the lake, his first dip in the river, and his first experience with the sprinkler. I think it's safe to say that our boy is a fan of the water. We can't wait to take him to the pool when it opens later this month.
He's still not crawling, but he can move himself around. He rolls and squirms and grunts a lot, but he figures out a way to get where he wants to go. And he seems to always be in motion. He's quite the little bundle of energy and does not really like to sit still. Unless it's for one of his new favorite activities. He takes his basket of toys, pulls all the toys out of it, turns the basket over, and just slaps it with his hands or a toy. If I had knows how much fun the basket would be we could have just skipped the toys altogether.
He's sweet and lovable, talks a lot, and is showing signs of being strong willed and independent. With the mischievous little grin that sneaks out from time to time, I have a feeling this little guy is going to give us a run for our money.
