Eight months old this month.

Things to remember:
*catching you sucking your feet
*how ticklish you are
*your smile...to be greeted with such a whole hearted smile every time our eyes meet is addicting.*How much you adore your Dad. I'm okay with him being your favorite at the moment. He's my favorite too.
*The giggles you give when splashing around in the bath.
*Your pure joy when your clothes are removed. You love to be naked.*Everything must go straight to your mouth first.
*How fascinated you are with your hand. You hold it up and stare and examine that hand as if you've never seen something so interesting.
*Your gummy smile. Four teeth are just about to break through. I'm trying to enjoy this no teeth stage a bit longer.*Your favorite toy is an empty water bottle.
*Your adoration you have for your big sisters. Where ever they are you want to be.
*You can not sit still...especially at church.*when you grab my face with your pudgy sticky hands and give me slobbery kisses.
*Your laugh. It melts me.

Proof that you've grown:{4 days}{4 months}{8 months}

He is so cute! I love the 3 photos of him in the blue outfit...love him bursting out of it in the last one. We'll be adding one of those (a baby boy) to our family on Thursday and I can't believe it!

you make beautiful children erica.

Melia said...

I can't believe you could even sort of get that outfit on Jonas! He is perfect and we are so glad that he is a part of the family.

Melia- I know! As soon as he raised his legs up to grab his feet all the snaps but the middle one came undone. It was too funny. You can tell by his face that he is loooving it...right?!

Can't wait to try and get him to wear it again at 12 months! :)

What a rad idea to put him in the same jammies as he grows!

So I have to know where you get all Jonas' cute onesies and shirts. Like all those vintage looking onesies from previous posts... I just had a little boy and sooo want to dress him in stuff like that but havent found any yet.
