Standing and Clapping

It's been a busy couple of weeks! He just learned to crawl two weeks ago and now he is pulling himself to a stand and clapping.

Eric went to get him in the morning and there was Jack, standing in his crib and completely proud of himself! Just a few minutes later when Jack and I were playing on the bed he started clapping. He gets good sound from it too!

First Trip to Gettysburg

Jack made his first trip to Gettysburg! (For those of you that don't know, Eric and I are Civil War freaks)
We only stayed for a few hours so that he wouldn't get too worn out. He slept on the way there, we had breakfast at the Avenue Diner and went to Devil's Den first. It was really hot because they took a lot of the trees down so we didn't stay there for long. Next we found a nice shady area and spread out a blanket so that Jack could "stretch his legs". I think that was the best part of the whole trip. He discovered grass for the first time and had a ball crawling all over the blanket and playing with his toys.

Jack Crawled!

Jack crawled!

He's been rocking back and forth for several weeks now and he finally crawled this evening! He was in the living room with Eric and I was in the bathroom. Jack must have heard me talking through the door and he decided it was time to crawl and find Mommy! Next thing I know there he is at the bathroom door looking completely proud of himself! Eric didn't even notice that he had left the living room!

General Update

General update -

Jack is still getting up on his hands and knees but isn't actually crawling anywhere.

He says "dada", "baba" and a few other sounds that come out sounding like sentences!!

He puts his arms out to you when he wants to be picked up and doesn't want us out of sight for very long either!

He loves bathtime and especially loves it when Daddy (Eric) plays with him. Mommy (me) just can't make the same kind of sound effects.

He loves to growl and will often get into a growling match with Eric. We caught it on video the other day. If I ever figure out how to download the video I will share.

Happy 8 month birthday to my little man!
