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.
