eight months old.

getting these pictures is getting harder and harder.

corbin would much rather play with eat my signs than sit still like he used to!

last sunday corbin turned eight months old. [yikes, im super late at posting this!] we celebrated the day at the mariners game . oy!
corbin has been up to so much this past month! and my most favorite new thing he's started is saying, "mamamamamama" when he whines! sometimes i just let him whine a few seconds longer than i normally would just so i can hear it!

he can get up on all fours, but then has no idea what to do after that.and because our house is so small i've only ever seen him roll once or twice but when he is in a more open area [like the huge mat at baby gym or mimi's living room floor!] he will roll and roll and roll and roll...and even if he's not rolling, he's moving all over the place by scooting around. see highly detailed photo below:corbin would MUCH rather be walking anywhere he goes. i could seriously walk him around the house the whole day and he would be happy. and the past few days we've been letting go [with our hands RIGHT THERE just in case] to see how far he'll go on his own. or when he's standing holding something we just let him hold it rather than hold on to him and he does pretty good!
he has his top four teeth coming in. the middle two are thru and the other two are on their way out! he's not at all fussy about it either which i love. but there is no way he'll let me in that mouth of his to take a picture of it. he'll take both his hands and shove whatever it is [washcloth, pacifier, camera, etc.] right out of the way!

he's been eating lots of new foods since last month and has been doing great with finger foods. i think he actually prefers feeding himself so he doesnt have to wait for me because WATCH OUT when i take too long to shovel food in his mouth! he gets super tense and grunts like FEED ME NOW LADY! he eats peas and chopped up carrots by himself. and puffs, oh how he loves his puffs! and his pincher grasp is getting really good. the first few days he would just put his entire hand in his mouth [and sometimes he still does!] but now he mostly uses his little finger to scoop them up. he also says, "mmmmm" most of the time while he eats. its too cute! since last month he's eaten and liked peaches, applesauce, papaya, blueberries, zucchini, yo baby yogurt, broccoli, potatoes, and chicken. which all make for some pretty gag-worthy diaper changes! corbin is most ticklish on his feet and when i blow on the very front of his neck. he loves to be rubbed on the back of his neck, his back and belly, and his chubby knees the most. he hates cold washcloths on his face [but who doesnt]. his favorite toys are shoes, cell phones, magazines, and tv remotes. but close behind [and ones he actually gets to play with] are his stacking rings, haba ball track, cardboard books, the laundry basket [that he can pull himself up to standing in...among a few other places], a trader joes reusable shopping bag, and a plastic cup filled with lids and plastic easter eggs! he is super wiggly when i change his diaper or clothes. he splashes and tries to eat the bubbles in the bathtub. he usually takes three hour long naps a day. and he loves looking out the window and being outside!corbin is my most favorite little guy ever. i love his smile and his laugh. they way he looks when he wakes up in the morning. the total excitement when his dad comes home from work every day. the way he plays with his toys and explores everything. or reaches for me when someone else holds him and he wants his mommy back. i love after nap cuddles. and how he tucks his lower lip in when he's investigating something or is in a new place. and how sweet and goofy and absolutely adorable corbin is! im so so so proud to be his mommy and so so so happy he's all mine ours. [i guess i'll share!]

  1. Corbin is just so stinkin' cute! I love the sleeping picture :) Thanks for the lovely comment on my video. If we're ever visiting my dad's family in Enumclaw, we'll have to get together. Henry needs a cute little friend!
