8 Months: Our Goomba

8 Months.

Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Hazel
Weight: 20lbs

Grayson had a very eventful month - here is what he's up to:
*Crawls - and it happened so quick! He never army crawled, just went straight to the real thing. 
*Rolls - finally!
*Pulls himself to standing at EVERYTHING. Couches, Coffee tables, fireplace, doors, crib, you name it, he pulls himself up to it
*Gets himself into everything
*His favorite favorite food is Avocado
*We still puree some fruits/veggies for him, but have started him on finger foods/our foods. For example, tonight he had 2oz of pureed avocado, 4oz of YoBaby Yogurt, and a cup of macaroni with meatballs. (the macaroni was cut up into small pieces, as was the meatballs) . The more solid foods he eats, the less pureed we will give him. 
*Cut his top two teeth
*We retired the Jumperoo. G stopped enjoying it about a month or so ago. Once he decided he wanted to move on his own, he didn't want to be "strapped" into anything.
*Dropped the crib. Twice. It's currently at it's lowest setting
*started waving goodbye this week
*Got a couple new nicknames from his aunties: Goomba, Spike, and Grendar

We've been busy chasing the little guy around, and its really been so much fun. He loves skyping with family, and we usually end up chatting once a week with my mom, dad, or sisters. I'm so happy that with Facebook, blogging, skyping, G can grow up right in front of everyone. They don't have to miss out on big moments, and I don't have to feel like they're missing out on big moments. Heck, his first crawl was on camera in front of my mom and sister!

Of course I have a couple more pics:

 "Momma, I haven't blinked in 13 minutes, take the picture"
ps. how come babies never blink??? G always wins staring contests, darn baby!

 I told you he eats anything you put in front of him....


P.S - Dan just rolled his eyes at my song choice for this post. MUWAHAHAHA. 


  1. wow- what a month! i love hearing about the milestones. i can't believe all that can happen so quickly! i mean i can, because, it did with audrey. but with naomi, i'm always so shocked when something new happens. :)

    anyway, he is a doll!

  2. so unbelieveable darling!! i am just in love with his cheeks. this age is so so much fun when they just take off and learn something new every day!

  3. I absolutely LOVE this song. Takes me back to the days that I used to work in an italian restaraunt.
