Eight is Great

Is it really already time for our next monthly installment of Harry? I can’t believe how fast this kid is growing. One more month and he hits equilibrium.

This month. Oh man. So much happened in one month. Harry went from scooting and rolling to crawling everywhere, and man is he fast. Cords are especially appealing so we’ve been doing lots of baby proofing. He learned to wave, clap, dance (!!), shake his head no, and he’s about this close to standing without holding on to anything. The poor guy was sick for the first time this month, but he handled it like a champ. He even slept an 11 hour stretch overnight once this month! (But don’t let that fool you, he still wakes up twice a night or more usually.)

Harry is a family boy. Nothing is better than being with Mama and Papa, especially when one of us is chasing after him. His feet kick like crazy. Harry also discovered a love for the swings this month. He kicks and laughs and then cries when we leave. His appetite is awesome – eating anything from steak to broccoli to croissants to soda water. And he even says “Mmmmm” when he eats something particularly good. He’s putting those three teeth to good use (and three more are threatening to pop through any day now).

We are so grateful for every single day we get with this guy. He’s a handful, but my hands have never been happier. Seeing the world through his curious eyes is one of the best gifts I could ever ask for. And the feeling I get when he hugs me is indescribable.

xoxo, Mallory
