8 Months - May 7, 2013

Firsts: First Airplane ride (to Utah), First time sitting up all by himself, First time we all slept through the night, First time I left him for the weekend (so hard), First ear infection, First Pink Eye, First time swimming.

Cole is the happiest baby! I can't tell you how much I love him and love playing with him. It is amazing what a full nights sleep does for everyone. He has always been really happy, but now I feel like such a happier mom as well. We went to Utah and Cole was able to see all of his aunts and uncles up there and our friends. He loves to be out and about, running errands, going to the park, to the beach. He now sits in the seat of the grocery cart and smiles and stares at EVERYONE until they smile back at him. Going anywhere is so fun with him, watching him take in new places. Chad took Cole in the pool in St. George on 5/7 and he kicked and splahsed and laughed the whole time. What's better than a huge bathtub?? Not much to Cole. He now eats 3 times a day, and two of the stage 2 foods each meal. We go through about 35 of those containers a week, thats about $90 a month. Trying to be the good mom, I whipped up some baby food (wish it was as easy as it sounds), and a few hours later I had a stash of pears, sweet potatoes and carrot/peas. I couldn't wait to give him his first homemade meal, but to my disappointment he spit and gagged on the food. I hope this isn't a sign of the future. I ended up freezing in ice cube trays all the food and will try giving it to him in the future.
