Aiden is 8 months old...

It's hard to believe that our little guy is already 8 months old.  These are the fun things he's been doing lately...

He pulls himself up onto everything.  Now not only does he play inside the exersaucer, but he plays on the outside of it as well.  

He's been doing the army crawl for quite some time now.  He's getting pretty fast at it too.  
Standing up in his crib!!!  We had to lower his mattress a couple of weekends ago because this is how I found him one morning.  Within the last few days I took his bumper pads out because he was looking like he was about to try and climb on those as well.  Now I feel like he's bumping his head, but I guess I rather him do that then fall out of the crib.  Any suggestions about that one?
He's just so proud of himself....

Loves it when I spike his hair up!  You can also see his two bottom teeth in this picture.  Those actually started coming in over a month ago, but he never lets me get a picture of them.  The four on the top are all coming in right now at the same time.  Oh the joys of teething!  
Doesn't miss a meal even if it means sleeping at the table!!!  This little guy can eat!  We have been going to the doctor a lot lately because he constantly has ear infections (that's another story).  So last Monday they weighed him and he weighed right at 19 pounds!  I couldn't believe it.  I asked his doctor if she thought I was feeding him too much and she just laughed and told me to keep feeding him like I am because at 15-18 months their appetite usually decreases.  I'm thinking he won't have a problem with that one.  

Even though he's a boy he has to have cute shoes!  This isn't necessarily something that he likes, more something mommy likes!  He could care less about them.  He's always pulling them off or chewing on them anyways.  

We love you little man!  Thanks for making us laugh everyday.  That smile is very contagious!
