Happy 8 Month Birthday Willie!

WOW! I can't believe that it has been 8 WHOLE MONTHS! I feel like it was just yesterday when my sweet baby boy was born and now he is 8 Months Old! I just can't believe how time has flown by and how much he has grown and changed! He has definitely changed his look from infant to baby.
This picture is from about two weeks ago, I love dressing him up especially in all coordinating clothes. You can't see it but EVEN his socks have little boats on them. I could just eat him up in his visor! I got the shirt, visor, and socks at a baby shower and have been waiting very anxiously for him to finally fit in them!


Last night we pre-celebrated our little guys 8 month birthday by daddy grilling some burgers and Willie having mixed vegetables. Usually we keep pretty neat and clean when we eat but lately he seems to think he needs to grab the spoon and get every drop of food from it every time you try to give him a spoonful of food. You would think that at least some of it would make it into his mouth, but......

it mostly made it everywhere else!


Mommy and Daddy were getting VERY tired of fighting Willie for the spoon so we decided to let him have a spoon. The picture below is the results of that GENIUS idea!


He decided then that he needed both spoons! And when we took them away in order to continue feeding him he showed us his what he really thought! You see in all the big changes he has been making his personality has really developed and he is VERY sweet and lovable UNTIL you do something he doesn't like! Then you get the picture below. ( If you look closely you can see his new pearly whites! He also has two top teeth coming in for some reason he wouldn't let me take a picture of those. )

You should see me try to change his diaper on the changing table I feel like I am participating in a rodeo and I am trying to make it to the 8 second mark. I wonder how he can swivel and squirm around with only his head touching the changing pad! Ahhhhh the new skills!

Once we had gotten ready for bed he had decided that he was NOT tired and was going to play in his bed and lean up against the side of his crib. I am assuming that he wanted to be awake to ring in his 8 month birthday. Unfortunately we saw on the baby monitor that he had fallen asleep sitting up with his head resting on his knees. And of course we wanted a picture of it, because we feel we need a picture of EVERYTHING! And when we went to take the picture the camera pre-flashed and woke him up. He then realized had fallen asleep and resumed his awake position. He is too funny sometimes!





I really wanted to post last week, because Willie went swimming for the FIRST time, but things were crazy so I am going to loop it in with this one! We went swimming on Saturday at William's uncle's pool Willie's best pal and cousin Annabelle invited him to come swim with her.





Here they are as Annabelle goes over the pool rules.







Here's Willie waiting to get in the pool. I don't know about you but it looks like he is a little nervous. Whatever it was he was in DEEP THOUGHT


We were worried that Willie wouldn't like the water because it was a little cool. But surprisingly he enjoyed it.





But it wasn't the pool that made Willie smile in the picture above it was Annabelle making a silly face at him! I don't know what it is, but all she has to do is look at him and he smile's and laughs. I love to watch them interact, it is too cute!



Willie & William


On Sunday after church we decided that since swimming in the big pool went so well we would try swimming in our baby pool!
I know I have posted a million of these pictures of the two of them in their sunglasses but I just think he is adorable in them!

At first, I don't know what it was but Willie did NOT like the water! But once we brought out some bath toys he started to enjoy it!

But for some reason instead of playing with the water he kept pulling at the grass!

Well I know this has been a ridiculously long post so I will end it with a little clip of Willie's latest trick. He is not crawling yet but we think it will be coming soon probably before he is 9 months!

I am so glad that I have a happy healthy little boy and I thank God for him everyday! Happy 8 months Willie!
