8 Months!

My baby is eight months old today!!! 
Zachary is 18lbs and his new favorite food is those cereal puffs. We have nicknamed them "baby crack" in our house because he loves them so much. I think they are probably not that good for him, but I figure I make all this baby food from scratch, so a little cereal puffs isn't going to kill him. =) We are switching to Cheerios after these are gone though.

What is new with Zach this month?? Well, he's slept ALL night several nights. I'm talking went to bed between 5-7 pm and didn't wake up until 7am.
Foods he's tried up to this point are: pear, sweet potato, sweet pea, butternut squash, cauliflower, oatmeal, rice, cantaloupe, carrot, apple... No teeth yet for this guy... although I think he'd appreciate some!
He is finally sitting up on his own well enough that he doesn't have to be propped or surrounded by pillows all the time. He has NO desire to start moving around though. Malachi was crawling by this point - Zach would rather be held.
New activities he's loving: he dances to music, he is starting to really enjoy his little books, clapping games and pulling his feet and toes. He's also becoming more talkative and loves to try to eat mommy's necklace all the time.

Malachi and Zach are such cute little friends. They really love each other and I just keep hoping it stays that way. Malachi is so good about playing with him and Zach just puts up with all his brothers over-zealous loving. =)

Love this little guy!!!
