Micah's Monthly Update- Month Eight

8 months have passed since Micah made his grand entrance into our family.  We feel so much love for this little boy and are so proud of him.  He is the sweetest little baby boy I've ever met.  He laughs and giggles 90% of the time.  He rarely cries.  He adores his big brother.  He makes us all laugh. 

This was a big month for him because he became mobile.  We are exhausted!  I put a status on Facebook that said something about "not ever getting to sit down again!"  I remember these days with Jonah.  I remember putting toys everywhere and him only being drawn to the my computer cord.  Those days have returned. 

Taking pictures of him this month has become increasingly more difficult because he now knows he doesn't have to stay put.  He was constantly pulling up and scooting away from me.

We took you to the doctor yesterday to have your breathing checked and you weighed 21.5 pounds fully clothed.  You wear mostly 6-9 clothes but in Gymboree, you wear 6-12 months.  You are still wearing some 6 month sleepers.  You are in a size 3 diaper.  I think you are ready to move to a size 4 but I have two whole cases of Size 3's we need to use first.  So, stop growing...please!  You still haven't uttered a single word.  Your friends that are weeks younger than you are saying 2-4 words now and you haven't even attempted a word.  I totally get that because both of your parents are the shy and introverted type.  (Yeah, right!)  

You are learning to wave but haven't done it on command yet.  You have been getting 3-5 breathing treatments a day and tolerate them about 85% of the time.  Your mattress has been moved to the lowest setting.  You go down for the night between 7 and 8 p.m.  You wake up around 9 or 9:30 a.m.  (Seriously, I adore you for this!)  You aren't proficient yet at getting food into your mouth with your fingers.  You currently have 4 teeth on top and 3 on bottom.  

You are a TOTAL fan of your big brother.  You think he is the greatest thing on this planet.  Your entire face lights up when you see him.  And, if he speaks to you or plays with you, you can barely catch your breath because you are so excited. 

This last picture is SO fitting because this is what we see most from you these days.  You never stay still and are always on the move.  I can only imagine what the monthly update will say next month.  We love you so much!

I can't get over all the teeth! Do you think Miller would rather have diapers or dentures? I can't afford both.
