Elijah's 8 Months Update

Loves being outside!

Elijah is growing up right before our eyes. We cannot believe it! He is scooting all over the place now. He gets up on his knees in the crawl position and rocks back and forth. He has all the right motion but has not put it all together yet. It will not be long before he is really crawling. He thinks any toy on the floor is there for him and he goes right for it (which doesn't always make his siblings to happy). He has already gotten into our DVDs and started teething on the DVD cases.
Can you tell I have green eyes (all three kids have different color eyes) and I am getting some hair!
 He is teething like crazy but he still does not have any teeth yet. You can feel them right underneath the gums though. Everything is going into the mouth. We are really having to watch the toys that Rachel and JP leave on the floor. He can drink out of a straw now and wants to drink out of whatever cup his siblings are drinking out of. He's still a great eater and trembles for his dinner. He is starting to talk now and loves to say "dada" all the time. He has said "mama" but only once or twice. I know it will not be long before I am hearing "mama" all the time.
Love the expression on his face in this one!

Side profile!

Elijah loves to be outside playing. He gets such a big grin when we go for a walk. He loves to see all the trees and feel the wind on his face. He is not a big fan of the swing yet. If he goes to fast he gets freaked out but every time he is in it it gets better and better.

Elijah's 7 Month Update

He is such a happy boy!!!!

Elijah is growing up so fast. He is such a wonderful addition to our family. He is such a smiley, happy, and content  boy.  He is starting to scoot around now, but he prefers to roll over and over to get where he is going. He is very independent and is happy doing his own thing but also loves it when you interact with him.

Elijah is still working on sitting up. He would rather work on crawling then sitting up. Although he can and knows how to sit up it is not something he is really interested in right now.  He will sit up for me every now and then and I actually got a picture of it...

One of few pictures of Elijah sitting up!

Elijah is eating really well but he is still spitting up. We hope that the spitting up stops real soon for the sake of our carpet. His favorite food would have to be carrots. He trembles when you are feeding them to him.

There are a few toys that he favors one of which would have to be his little radio music player and we never leave home with out it. He loves his tags ball. He also loves monkeys. We have some toys that have monkeys on them and we have noticed that he is drawn to them. 

We are so impressed with how loving and sweet his disposition is. We are excited to see his personality develop and cannot wait to those precious first words. We know God has many wonderful things in store for him.
