You are 8 months old, Finn! This month you finally made the connection between moving your hands and your feet, and you started to crawl! It only took you a few days to gain lots of speed, and now you can be out of a room in the blink of an eye. So, this is my view most of the time these days…
You especially love to crawl over to a floor vent and let the air blow on your face until it takes your breath away. And then you usually follow that up by trying to chew on a cord. You are a little predictable.
You still have no teeth, but the drool is coming full force. Your hair has really started to come in, and it’s pretty dark. I’m anxious to see if it lightens up any, since your sister and brother both had blond hair as babies. And Grayson still does!
You are still eating well, as is obvious since you are now almost entirely in 12 month clothes. You love all fruit, sweet potatoes, and chicken noodle and veggies. And you will chow down on some puffs. It’s pretty funny to watch you go after them, shoving them in your mouth.
I have also given you bananas and grapes in a mesh feeder, and you were all over it. When it comes to food, you are all business.
We seem to have finally gotten the nap thing down! You nap in the mornings and the afternoon for about an hour and a half each. Then you are down for the night at 7 each night.
You are such a happy boy! It’s so awesome to watch you explore and learn! Happy 8 months, Finn!

Finn is mobile. Life as we know it is forever changed. No crumb on the floor is safe. And he has a special affinity for power cords, which makes his momma a nervous wreck. He also obviously has no fear of tight places or the dark. I looked up the other day to find this.
That’s an ottoman. And my baby’s hand.
My baby’s legs and those cords he likes so much… Fortunately, the cords are around his legs and not in his mouth.
And if that’s not enough cuteness, here he is getting his crawl on…
