8 Months Old and So Much Fun!!!

Leyton turned 8 months old yesterday. We have had many many changes over the last month! Leyton got his first cold :(! About a week ago, I noticed that he had a little bit of a runny nose, but it was clear. It did not take long for him to become stopped up. After a couple of days of sucking his nose constantly and using the saline drops, i called the doctor. She said it was good that I came on in because he was really congested, but we caught it before it moved to his ears and chest. So, he had to take 2 antibiotics. He was great at taking his medicine, and he is so much better now!!!!

Leyton is "talking" so much more these days! He has got his b's and d's down pat! He is constantly saying "ba-ba-ba-ba" and "da-da-da-da". I know he does not know what "Da-Da" means yet, but it is still so much fun to hear him say it! I hope his M's come soon so i can get close to getting a "Ma-Ma"!!!! He is still rocking so hard on all 4's trying to go forward. He still scoots backwards, but he is getting to where when he rocks back and forth, he will take one giant leap forward, and then stops!

Leyton also shakes his head back and forth when I say "no, no". He is so funny to watch! I was feeding him the other night and he didnt want another bite, so he would just shake his head "no, no". Too cute! Thornton and I just laugh at him! Thornton looked at him the other day and said "No," and he shook his head!

He is still a great eater and great sleeper. He eats whatever we give him, and seems to like everything except the Gerber Vegetable Beef dinner.... he makes an awful face with every bite of it, so I will not buy that one again. We are just having the best time watching him grow and change every single day. I really cannot believe that in just 4 short months, we will be having his first b-day party!!

Playing with his blocks. He loves these things!
Constantly has his fingers in his mouth feeling his teeth.

such a big boy in this picture!

Trying to go forward!

He loves to hold his own spoon
