This now 8 month old kid absolutely melts my heart. He is the classic definition of a momma's boy and I kind of love it.
He is more than willing to smile at anyone else and is ok with them holding him, until he sees me. And he is absolutely not ok with me walking out of the room. He is definitely in the separation anxiety phase.
Ty's 8th month started off wonderfully - HE SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT! And woke up so happy! I woke up panicked, but happy once I realized what happened.
It was unfortunately really short lived because we went out of town for Halloween and he is in a constant state of teething so...it was nice while it lasted.
I ended my last post by saying I thought it would be any day now until he was crawling and into everything. The day has come! He is not only crawling - very quickly - everywhere, but he has also learned to pull himself up on everything.
Lori isn't super thrilled with another kiddo chasing her, but she is dealing with it. She's a good sport. Ty loves all the animals - he has discovered the animals hanging above his crib and just beams whenever he sees them or any of the mounted deer of his dad or grandfathers.
If I turn my head for a second he is off! He has also learned to stand up in bed and is beyond proud of himself.
We all took our first trip to the Houston Aquarium. We went on a Monday morning and there wasn't anyone there so we got to ride all the rides basically by ourselves. The ferris wheel was a hit...the train, not so much for Ty.
He is still wearing size 4 diapers and 9-12 month clothes. Mostly 12 months. He is doing great with solids and loves puffs. He has contemplated taking a bottle from Barry but isn't totally convinced yet.
He still has just the two teeth but has a couple others that are starting to poke through. He thinks Sawyer is just the greatest, especially her hair. He is a hair puller in the worst way. Besides hair, his favorite things are my phone, his activity table, trying to crawl into the fireplace and taking a bath. He definitely keeps me on my toes and is already into way more than Sawyer ever was, but then he just smiles...I am not sure how he is every going to get in trouble for anything with those dimples!
