8 months!

I can't believe Peyton is 8 months old! We're creeping towards that 1 year mark! I feel like everything is going so much quicker since he turned 6 months old. He seems to learn new things very quickly (as evidenced by how quickly he became proficient at crawling) and discovers new things every day! Here's a rundown of what is going on up to now:

- Crawling for a month
- Pulling up to standing for a little less than a month (he can use anything to stand!! He can even stand up just by balancing his hand on our outstretched legs on the floor)
- Starting to drink formula (we've started the process of weaning him so that we can get him on formula and get those calories in him!!)
- Self-feeding with snacks. His favorite snacks are these Gerber maple puff thingies (Casey hates the smell of them!)
- Starting to take steps when you hold his arms (aaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!)
- Can make it up the first two steps on our stairs
- Finally starting to really "play" with his toys (although his favorite toys are still things like laundry baskets, boxes, and remote controls)
- Still taking 2 naps a day (about 2 hours in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon)

We're looking forward to booking our trip back to Texas. I'll be going with Peyton for two weeks (one week with my parents, one week with Casey's) and Casey will just meet us in Texas for the week with his parents. We'll also be spending two weeks in Colorado this summer!
