8 Months Old...Already?!

Goodness, time flies!!!! My boo-boo turned 8 months old yesterday. I took him to his pediatrician because he was missing his 6 months shots (because he was sick everytime she wanted to give them to him), of course he didn't like that one bit, but he was a trooper! He is 21 lbs 1 oz and 28 1/2" long...mommy's big boy.

We went through the whole "what's he doing now" bit and I told the doc that he is still not crawling or pulling himself up and although he can sit up unassisted if I sit him up, he can't go from lying to sitting by himself. So she's sending him for an early intervation evaluation for gross motor skills. Other than that, he's all good! His fine motor skills are great...he pulls himself into a standing position if he holds my hands and he walks all over the house, holding my hands of course.

But anyway, here's a pic of my Xan taken about a week ago, sporting his new grille...see the 2 little baby pegs? Isn't he cute?

He is just a little DOLL! I want to pick him up and just kiss him all over his tiny face.

He is adorable!!! And yes you have a big little man there (my 3 (well 2.8) year old is 30lbs) and she has a friend who has another 10lbs on her and he never crawled he just scooted himself on his butt due to his heavier weight, but when he was ready he went straight from scooting to walking NO CRAWLING for him. Now they are about the same height but still not the same weight. I bet your little man will by pass crawling and take off running!!!
