When I realized today that Sam is 8 months old, I could hardly believe that. I seriously feel like I blinked and the past 8 months flew by. He is so much fun and has become an active, mobile, laughing, and interactive boy to add to the mix. Having him mobile has changed the game in a lot of ways… he can be put down on the floor, sit by himself, and is in total exploration mode around the house. In some ways, it makes things easier because he is happy and content to play and not be held quite as much. But the level of movement around the house and mess created with 3 very active boys sometimes leaves my head spinning!
A few fun things about Sam at 8 months… his first tooth just popped in, he is crawling and pulling up on everything, he loves to eat paper! (which i noticed when I kept finding chewed up pieces of books on the floor and in his mouth), he loves his brothers and smiles and laughs just seeing them walk in a room, he loves the bath and playing in water, and he also loves Opal Dean. His little personality reminds me of a mixture of Bradford and Chaz. He’s not as intense as Bradford, but also not as laid back as Chaz…maybe somewhere in the middle. He smiles easily, but is becoming weary and hesitant around strangers. He is a good eater and sleeper, and for the most part a pretty easy little guy.
