Landon is 8 Months Old!

Landon, you are 8 months old today! 
This past month you have developed such a little personality! Sometimes you mess with your sister and the only way to describe you is a little stinker. You got to sit in the race car buggy at Publix the other day with your sister for the first time. You constantly pulled her hair, grabbed her steering wheel, and overall just annoyed her to where Daddy had to take you out! (You and your sister both have your moments, she has picked on you plenty of times!)
So cute. Isn't Madison's face so intense?
You are such a loving, sweet baby boy. You flirt and can act shy around others. You like to smile at them then bury your face in my shoulder and then repeat. You have the most adorable laugh, are super ticklish still, and you are still having some stranger anxiety, immediately crying if someone new takes you from us. You are usually OK if you don't see me, like if I drop you off in the nursery at church and you immediately go play.

You nurse 3-4 times a day, eat yogurt for breakfast (which you love) and have baby food for lunch and supper. We are still working on finger foods. You still gag when you try to eat puffs or yogurt melts. You've gotten a few down, though! You love a little apple juice in a sippy cup. You also like to throw things down on the floor, then look down at them to see what you did.

You take a 2 hour nap in the morning and a 3 hour nap in the afternoon. You usually sleep around 12 hours a night without a peep. You are such a wonderful sleeper!

Last week you hit about 20 pounds, only 3-4 pounds less than your big sister. You're in 6-9 or 6-12 month clothes depending on brand. I have no idea what size shoe you're in because you don't really wear them yet! I would guess size 2 or 3 maybe.

You still roll around the room quickly, pivot, and get up on your knees and rock--looks like you could take off crawling any day. You're not as good at walking with help like your sister was-safe to say I don't think you will start walking at 9 months like your sister did!

You have done a lot of babbling all of a sudden, mostly consisting of "baba blahblah dada."

You LOVE being in the johnny jump-up and you love to play on the floor with your sister (and eat her baby dolls-which doesn't go over too well with her).

You also got your first bath in the big bathtub with your sister this month. You absolutely loved it! You immediately start splashing and playing, soaking me. You're a little obsessed with water, and the second I walk into the bathroom, you see the bathtub and start fussing and trying to dive in out of my arms! You played in the pool outside for the first time too. I know you and your sister will have a blast at the beach this summer!
Now for some pictures from the past month:

You love playing in your crib after you wake up.
 Your sister is a little boss to you sometimes!

 Trying to figure out the whole crawling thing. Just doesn't look comfortable.

 I love how he was posing like a model. Got the whole look down!
