8 Months Old

Evan is very mobile now, even though he is not crawling.  He can get pretty much anywhere by rolling and rotating.  He can also pull himself up to a standing position with a little help from Mom or Dad.  He loves getting into things he’s not supposed to, like power cords, remotes, and telephones.

He eats pureed peaches, pears, prunes, apples, carrots, sweet potato, squash, green beans, and peas; most of which, Mommy has made from scratch and frozen into cubes. He really prefers the fruits, but will eat the green veggies when mixed with a little fruit.

He loves to turn the pages of board books, and loves it when we act excited and clap at anything.  He constantly flirts when we are out and about.  He will give a half smile to a stranger and then turn his face away, and then do it again with a full smile….so cute!

We are still waiting on his breakthrough for sleep.  He still gets up 2-4 times per night. However, he now puts himself to sleep at bedtime and for naps with little or no fussing on most occasions, which is wonderful.

    Evan is beyond adorable. Both of his parents are terrific photographers but he sure has learned to “strike the pose” at an early age. Looks like he is checking his gums for a tooth!
    love, Ann, Julia and Lola

    Thanks for the updates Becky! How does Evan put himself to sleep? Just hunkers down or smiles “ok, Mom” and nods off or….? Hopefully he will start sleeping longer soon. Beautiful pictures! Love, Ree
