8 months...or Where does the time go...

We took Brendan to get pictures taken yesterday at Wal-Mart. He started out the session in a very serious mood, but after a little walk around the "studio" he warmed up and we got some very cute photos (if you ask me :D). Two of the outfits are items that we picked up for B in Tokyo; the items being the Totoro Hat and Bib and the "Ninja" outfit. LOVE IT!!! I can't wait for him to fit into some of the other clothing items we picked up for him in Tokyo...we have a really cute Mickey Mouse outfit that will be super duper cute!!!
So, at 8 months Brendan:
*scoots all around the house by rolling and "shuffling", but has yet to really crawl.
*loves to walk while someone is holding his hands
*loves to walk in his walker...chasing Pibb and opening drawers
*wears 9 month, 12 month and 12-18 month clothing
*wears size 3 diapers
*wears size 1 and 2 shoes
*has turned into a complete momma's boy...gotta love that seperation anxiety, huh!
*had a little "accident" and is no longer allowed to sit on the couch by himself...
*is sleeping through the night again...whew...
*grabs at anything and everything that catches his eye...he especially loves remotes
*has started to use a high pitch squeal when he's having fun and wants to let us know about it...he is also making more sounds; ba, ma, mmmmmm, ow, awww, ya
*enjoys a whole menagerie of food...blueberries, peaches, mangos, corn, sugar snap peas, peas, broccoli, cherries, sweet potatoes, sqaush, cereal, and rice crackers that we got at the Japanese Mall in Chicago
*is most ticklish under his chin :D
*likes to stick out his tongue and aslo rub his tongue on his bottom teeth...which have yet to show up, but are just under the surface waiting to make their debut
*is now 27" long and roughly 22-24 pounds
I'm sure I'm leaving something out, but I will update if/when I think of others to include.

Hey! Shelby was born on May 30th, 2008! I think they are like a day or two apart, if not the same day? :)
