8 months old! Are you freakin kiddin?

I think the title says it all!  I am amazed at how fast the past 8 months have gone!  What is even more amazing is how different Griffin is now from just 1 month ago!
Lets recap....
At 7 months
mostly army crawling
could pull up but not very well
could stand while holding on to something but very wobbly
no teeth
bucket car seat
was content hanging out on our rug playing
didn't know what it meant to have something he wanted taken away, or what it meant to be diverted away from something
could stand at railing in his crib

At 8 months
FAST in a real crawl
STANDS at EVERYTHING and can let go and stand ALONE
can walk himself along the couch, wall, door etc.
2 bottom teeth
big boy car seat
HATES just sitting on the rug playing...needs to be crawling...EVERYWHERE!
knows what he wants, when he wants and lets you know!
jumps while holding railing in his crib
New fun tricks at 8 months
waves buh bye and hi (when he wants)
 gives hi-fives
closes any cabinet I open and must receive a high five after
knows that when we go in the garage he gets to push the button to open or close it
has the the "mmmmmmmmmmmma" to mama
and newest trick as of this morning...
can walk while pushing Joe's lunch box along the floor
I am almost scared to see what this post looks like a month from now....but so excited!

Now time for a picture dump!

With his first Christmas right around the corner we took some pictures for our Christmas card and there is no way I can wait that long to show you all so is a sneak peek...the rest will be up tomorrow to welcome December!

I DID IT!!! NaBloPoMo is done and I feel so accomplished!!!  30 posts in 30 days!  A lot harder than one may think, especially with an eight month old baby boy who hates naps!  But he makes for the best material!

This month was hard but without Griffin and Joe I would not have been able to do it,
 Ernie and Milo helped too!
Thanks men--Mommy loves you!
