Time feels like it is flying by, and Edmond is 8 months old. At 8 months, he is “cruising” a little bit, waves hello (but not bye), babbles and coos and grunts and squeals constantly, is a champ when it comes to eating solid food (he loves carrots and celery, parenting score!), and makes each day a new adventure. We have had such a fun summer with him, and love watching him grow. He still loves Bear Snores On — it is our go-to when he is fussy in the car or on the changing table. It will stop him from crying about 95% of the time — but he has started loving other books too. Every Thursday we go to the library together and pick out board books to read for that week. Edmond continues to LOVE music and the outdoors. He is attentive whenever his dad or I play music, and loves strumming the strings of Jonathan’s classical guitar. He is into everything and is constantly on the go. We love this little one more than words can express.
