Yep, 8 whole months.
This month has been a big one for Nicholas, he is now mobile. He gets anywhere he wants to go, and gets there fast. Goodbye sitting in one spot playing with toys, hello darting toward outlets, tugging on computer cords, and a newfound facination with finding things in the carpet. I vacuum a lot.
His method of transportation is a combo army crawl/regular crawl, and it is highly effective. I blame his brothers for teaching him this, as they crawled around on the carpet for a month trying to motivate him. It worked.
The boy loves food, and will eat anything we put in front of him (see above) with his 1-1/2 teeth. He is my best eater by far. Peas, green beans, avacado, anything. He absolutely loves kid's quesadillas at Cafe Rio. True story. He's a third child. Don't judge.
(Looking at these pictures I think it is time to break down and buy some 18 month onesies. As my grandpa would say, he's growing like a weed.)
I think it is true what they say. You know, how time flies faster with each child. That is the only explanation, because there is no way that this tiny baby is now this one:
Love you, boy. You and those chubby little legs. Even more than last month.
