Guess who's eight months old?

You guessed it! It's BabyBear! Good job!

Yes, our little man is three-quarters of the way through his first year... How time flies! Month No. 8 was not nearly as busy as month No. 7. The biggest development is that he now sits pretty well by himself; he'll still lean over if he's not paying attention or if he reaches too far for something, but he's able to sit and entertain himself much better than he was a month ago.

We didn't do much for Valentine's Day, but he enjoyed all the valentines he got -- thanks Grams and Gramps, Grandma, Aunt Sue and Uncle Vic, Aunt Kim, Uncle Josh and cousins J, E, R and P!

He talks and laughs a lot and really seems to enjoy his toys. He'll bang his bowls together (in what we like to think is a good proto-"Sic 'em, Bears!" motion) and can handle a ball well (both picking it up and scooping it up, as necessary).

BabyBear keeps wanting to eat what we're eating. He's enjoyed carrot, rice cake, broccoli and more banana, plus a whole boatload of different baby food flavors. He also has one more skill he's been working on; as soon as we get good video of it, we'll share it here.

And here he is, the proud eight month old!
