Levi turned eight months old today. He is becoming more and more interested in objects, especially items with buttons like the remote control and the telephone. He still loves walking, and now he is able to stand up against the back of the couch or other furniture without any help. Although he still demonstrates no interest in crawling, we are really working on the preparatory skills. Eating is one of his favorite activities. He has tried rice cereal, oatmeal, squash, sweet potatoes, peas, zucchini, green beans, carrots, apples, pears, prunes, cauliflower, avocado, banana, ground turkey, and cereal puffs (finger foods). We had to lower the crib this week because he figured out how to pull himself from sitting to standing. One silly thing that he does is he starts talking whenever he puts an object in his mouth. It could be a ball, a stuffed toy, or his wrist, but he loves hearing how his voice changes when he covers his mouth. Nathan and I have really been having fun with our quirky little guy!
