8 months old

Whenever I place Baby Chuck on the floor or on the bed, he inevitably ends up like this:

What can I say?  I like big baby butts.

He plops face down and then wiggles his bum and legs.  Sometimes he'll try to push himself up with his arms.  We think he does all this because really wants to crawl.  He's working so hard to move about, but right now he just stays put and flops like a fish.

Here are 8 facts about Baby Chuck in honor of his 8 month birthday:
(1)  He's currently teething.  Two of his top chompers are working very hard to get out.

(2)  His favorite foods are oat cheerios, mashed peas, and avocados.

(3)  His least favorite foods are carrots, apples, and banana. 

(4)  He's currently going through a momma's boy phase.  He really likes being held by momma.  (Sorry, hubby!)

(5)  Baby Chuck dislikes riding in the stroller.  The Ergo carrier is his ride of choice.  Bet you can guess who does the carrying...  (See 4) 

(6)  He can finally put his feet in his mouth.  Hooray!  Hubby and I call him our little Asian gymnast because he's so stretchy and flexible.       

(7)  He currently takes 2 naps a day.  I love nap time a whoooole lot.

(8) Baby Chuck loves it when hubby reads to him.  He just laughs and laughs at hubby's funny sounds and faces.

Happy 8 month birthday, Baby Chuck!  We love you very much.
