So Brad is 8 1/2 months. There are so many great things about him.

*He loves to move around. He can crawl up the stairs and he loves getting into everything.

*He goes to bed every night at 6:45pm and wakes up around 7:00am. give or take a half hour.
He usually wakes up once around 5am for a quick feeding and then goes back to sleep.

*He crawled at 6 months. Started moving around trying to crawl at 5 1/2 months.

*Brad loves food. We just started introducing table foods and he is liking it all.
(He eats more than I remember the girls eating)

*He is growing fast. Already 21 pounds.

*He is very smiley and doesn’t have stranger danger but does get shy around people and tilt hi head into his shoulder and look down at his chest. It is quite adorable.

*Brad is into everything. He loves to play the piano, my guitar. Get into the toys, play with whatever the girls are playing with.

*He loves to take a bath.

*He is not a fan of the car. Hardly ever falls asleep in the car.

*He is down to two naps. One around 9 or 10 am for about an hour and another at 1 for about an hour and a half. Although there are some days when he is up after a 30 min nap each time. And sometimes it is two full hours. I guess you can say he doesn’t need a lot of sleep like Whitney did but doesn’t not sleep at all. He was hard to train at night but we finally got him to only waking once. It was a lot harder than my other two.

*He is impossible to change a diaper on. He will not hold still. I have to gently pin his shoulders down with my feet. Hopefully that gets easier. He just wants to go!

*He is sweet and physical and I can not get enough of this little boy.

We have to do the feet on the shoulders thing, too! It's like, "If you would hold still, we could be done by now!" Kids, man.

Just got caught up on your blog! Your kids are so adorable!! I just want to snuggle Brad. Can't believe he's already climbing up the stairs! Aaron just stands at the bottom...he's never ventured up past the second step. It sounds like Brad is more of a "doer" than Aaron :) Love and miss you! Next time you come to WA to see Kenna, let me know and I'll meet you in Seattle!
