8 Months

Aiden was 8 months on a couple weeks ago.  Still hard to believe. 8 months sounds so close to 1 year old.  Literally in a week I swear he changed from baby to little man.  His mumbles are sounding more like vowels and we are still waiting on confirmation from words.  He could hold a bottle if he wanted but is lazy and would much rather me do it for him.  Aiden still cannot sit up and I am trying not to worry but I really think he is till so weak that is is very hard for him.  We are working on it hard though. He still loves his jumper and we have inreoduced the walker but it is not a big hit yet.  You try to make it bounce too and get frustrated that you cannot make it move.  I knew he would love it because he wants to be standing always.  I really think we might skip crawling and start walking.  He is still loving food and I think green vegetable are his favorite.  He loves spinach, avocado, pears, and peas.  You ar enot such a fan of meat but I don't think I would like meat ground up and pureed either.  Below are your monthly stats.

Height: unknown-but over 30 inches
Weight: 16 lbs. 8 oz.
Clothing size: 6 month or 9 month depending opn stride length.  You are still pretty true to size
Shoe size: 2
Meals: still every 3 hours like cloclwork.  2 food meals and day with 4 oz. formula and 7-71/2 oz when just getting formula (still no teeth!)
Diaper size: 2
                                                                      :( Sad
You are obsessed with your rubber ducky so we have to give it to you when you are getting fussy and you instantly cheer up!

Weekend in Review

This weekend was a pretty busy one for us.  Spring always seems much busier than Fall to me.  Saturday was spent at the ballpark for a baseball tournament and Sunday we decided to make a day traveling to Shreveport.  We went and ate at Posada's and then braced the rain to go to a few stores at The Boardwalk.  We then met some friends at Buffalo Wild Wings and went to the Centurytel for Zac Brown Band concert.  I have been wanting to see him for a long time and was thrilled when I found out he was coming so close to home.  I just hate it for him that it wasn't sold out.  I think having a concert on a Sunday night was probably not such a hot idea.  I just want to take a minute and tell you how good I thought they were.  First of all, he may be the only artist I've ever seen that I actually think sounds better live than on the radio.  The harmonies from his band are disgustingly good and they can all play their instruments like you would not believe.  You can truly tell all they want to do is get up and jam.  No messing around.  He played for over two hours. By 10:45 I was ready to go but refused to leave until I heard "Colder Weather" which of course he saved for the encore.  Monday morning was rough but totally worth it.  I didn't take many pics but here are a few snapshots.
 they did a number when they were suspended in the air.  It must be hard to do that and play guitar!

My dad sent me this pic.  I guess he wore himself out playing on the floor! We are so lucky to have both sets of parents available to keep our little man hen we need them!
