What's Carter up to at 8 months (a tad late)!!

Well, we certainly have an active boy on our hands.  Here are a few highlights from the last month:

*you are crawling everywhere.  now, when I say crawling it is more of an army crawl.  it almost looks like your legs are broken and you are dragging them along.  but, that doesn't stop get what you want and you get it fast.
*you are now able to go from laying on your belly to sitting up.
*you LOVE Riley.  she is the first thing you head for when you are on the ground.  she is so sweet to you grab her face and paws and she just sits there.
*you are still eating at least 4-6 oz bottles a day PLUS 4-5 jars of food (stage 2). 
*you are still in size 4 diapers as well.
*as far as weight goes, we will find out in the next few weeks at your 9 month apt; but if I had to guess, I would say you weigh at least 24+ lbs.  you are my big boy :)
*no teeth to report just yet.
*you successfully had tubes put in right before mommy and daddy headed to mexico.  so far so good.  you are babbling more than ever. 
*favorite 'word' to say is DADADADADA.  i believe i have heard you say HI as well!
*Chloe still catches your attention at all times.  if you are in the worst mood, she instantly makes you smile. 
*you have gotten really good at picking cheerios, etc off your highchair tray.

Carter, I know I sound like a broken record, but you are such a joy.  Everyone that meets you says how sweet you are.  We couldn't be more proud of you and the precious baby boy you are becoming!  Looking forward to the coming months that will bring so many more special milestones!  We love you!
