levi {eight months}

I can't believe it is almost fall and you are eight months old.
Time is going by way too fast.

I can't believe how much you are starting to move.
You are not quite crawling, but getting so close.
I bet in the next few weeks you are going to be 
getting into everything.

I can't believe the weird positions I find you in now.
What exactly are you trying to do silly boy?

I can't believe how much you eat...
...which would explain those big thighs 
you are working so hard to support.

I can't believe you started liking your pacifier so much again.
It was just okay when you were first born, 
but now that you can put it in yourself you love it.
You always put your pacifier in upside down or sideways.

I can't believe how brave you are. 
You are pulling yourself up on everything, even your toy basket.

I can't believe how funny you are. 
You tilt your head in a very exaggerated way to the side 
when you are trying to look at something.
You laugh a lot and we laugh a lot with you.

I can't believe your first two teeth are popping through.
You can't quite see them in your pictures yet,
but pretty soon you will have a toothy grin.

I can't believe that dada was your first word. 
But two days later you surprised me by saying mama.
I love hearing those words again.

I can't believe you are clapping your hands.
And waving and giving high fives too.
You sure know how to make people smile.

I can't believe how much you like your blanket.
You always sleep with it. 
Just like your sister.

I can't believe how special you are.

Love Him! He is so Stinking cute! And you can see Cora in his face.
How do you get anything done when you can just stare and play with him all day!

PS beware of new interest in the paci.... my son had a few times where he dropped his interest and I should have took it away then.... he will be 3 on 10/5 and we have finally broke him down to weekend naps, and only in the car. :)

He looks like such a happy little guy and quite the charmer too, I bet! Nothing cuter than some chunky thighs on a baby!

That boy is too cute! And your pictures are awesome! My favorites are the head tilt and the weird positions. Talia pushes herself up like that, too. Something about those thighs maybe? :) Happy 8 months to Levi!

I can't believe how much I love this little guy, and I've never even met him! Hoping to change that soon! Still trying to decide if we're really going to the walk/run--we have friends visiting from OK that weekend that we'd love to see, as well. Ah...what to do??? Love ya--Gail

He is at my very very favorite baby age!! I love 8 months. They are at their peak babyhood and full of rolls and chub. Still a true baby but learning so much each day. He is such a beautiful baby, you must be one proud mama!

My 14 year old daughter, who is about to enter high school, still calls me Mommy - and it makes my heart smile soooo very much.

Levi is such a happy baby! Thanks for sharing his cuteness!

Oh my! I just want to squeeze him - he's sooo cute. My son Deacon went straight from some of those almost crawling poses to walking at 9 months. So watch out! :) It's all good though. Beautiful photos!

I love seeing all these pictures of big Levi! It is crazy seeing him grow so fast, and I'm sure bittersweet too, missing your girl. I am pregnant with a baby that has a fatal neural tube defect called anencephaly. We know we will lose him soon after birth and I'm trying so hard to cherish these moments the Lord has allowed us to have with him. I know that someday, they will be the only memories I can cling to. But I do know, and am inspired to see you living out....that the Lord will carry us and will allow us to be a ministry to others. PRaise God that you have glorified his name in your heartbreaking fight, as you are an amazing mom to your boy!
