8 Months

I can't believe that Easton is 8 months old! I tried to take his picture this morning but he was sleepy and didn't want to smile, but I thought these turned out cute anyway.

Here is what Easton is up to now:

  • 22 pounds 4 ounces, not sure how long-- He is huge!
  • Rolls if he feels like it
  • Crawls backward, haven't figured out forward yet
  • Grabs at ANYTHING he is around
  • 1 1/2 teeth, #2 is breaking through right now
  • LOVES Ally
  • Screams, babbles, and sings high pitch notes
  • Pulls hair... ouch!
  • Twirls my hair when I hold him, I think it is a love thing (:

Easton has a tooth and has more quickly on the way so I hurried and took pictures of the 1st tooth to arrive before the others arrive! The first tooth popped up with no problems but the 2nd is proving more difficult. Not only does he have the typical fever with teething but this time he got croup too! I know, not teething related but still very sad!

Karate Chop!

I don't know what it is about boys and getting hit in the crotch... but Easton thinks it is funny already!

Cheap plug!

Bill will die when he reads this but oh well... I make these thank you baskets for each one of his clients once they close. What is better to says thanks than a basket of homemade goodies? And what better reason to buy a house from my hubby than to get those goodies? Just kidding!
It takes forever because I try to make at least 4 different kinds of treats but I hope that people enjoy them. And I make great cookies if I do say so myself.
Here are the baskets I made this time. Sugar cookies with homemade frosting, white chocolate dipped oreos, chocolate/white choc. chips cookies and brownie bites. YUMMY!

Cute Cousins

My oldest brother, his wife and my only nephew were here in AZ for about a month while Josh did a med school rotation at County hospital. It was good to have them here and to see Easton get to interact with his cousin Owen. Easton can't do much but sqwuak and flap his arms at Owen... but Owen gave him kisses, patted his head and even whacked him with a toy! (:

It was so good for Easton to be around him and see that relationship begin. They are 6 months apart and will be good buddies someday! Oh yea... and right now they look like opposites except that neither one has much hair.

Buddha Belly

Now that it isn't deadly hot, I took Easton out into the backyard with a small pool and he LOVED it! He is such a water baby! But the point of this story is to show off his buddha belly! This kid has some serious gut! It is the cutest thing ever! Oh yea and he weighs 22 pounds already! I am kinda freakin cuz I have to look into a different car seat! He is a growing boy!

Rockin n Rollin

Well, Easton has decided that even though he can roll, he doesn't care too. He would rather scoot around backwards on his tummy. This week he started getting up on his knees and rockin!

I think he will be crawling before long and I will be in big trouble!
