8 Months Old!

Dear Henry,
You turned eight months old nine days ago.  Yes, I'm late, but that seems to be the story of our lives these days.  Despite having moved exactly three months ago, we are still struggling to get organized and find a routine.  However, you have been such a trooper and have been rolling with our crazy mornings, when your dad and I are running around trying to get out of the house at a reasonable hour.

Lots of exciting things have happened in the past month. You got your first teeth (two bottom ones that came in at the exact same time), you learned to wave goodbye, and you are fully mobile (not crawling - just rolling).  We can't even turn our backs for a second before you've already rolled into the next room. You roll so quickly that I don't think you are that motivated to learn to crawl.

It seems like we've been throwing lots of big changes your way the past couple of months - the move from Chicago, the move into our new house - and you are about to have another big change: new day care.  You will be starting a full-time day care program on Monday. I hate shaking things up for you again, but I know this new school is better for you, and I have to remind myself that you are very  resilient.

Each month greets us with new and exciting changes in your development.  It is so fun to watch you grow and learn!

Baby in a bag!

Grandad Bill and Grandma Patty came to visit!

Already a Star Wars fan like dad!
