In the last week, the snow has melted; it’s rained a lot; and we’ve had visits from my mom, A.’s dad, and our good friends from San Diego; and a playdate with one of my coworkers and her 14-month-old son! Ari likes to keep busy.
He does get worn out sometimes:
His hair is getting long! I love his precious face and blue eyes:
He loves cords:
He tried out his new rain jacket from the consignment store:
Here he is with one of our San Diego friends:
Today, I took his 8-month picture. Here are some of the cutest ones:
Then he spent some time visiting with his elephant and bear friends:
What are his developmental milestones now? Well, he army crawls, sits up by himself, stands up if he’s holding on to something, picks up small objects and transfers objects from one hand to another, eats purees and cereal, babbles “b,” “d,” “g,” and “k” sounds, and blows raspberries, and he has two tooth buds! He smiles a LOT and laughs quite a bit, too. He loves people and gets very excited in social settings. He’s really a happy guy! We’re very lucky.
