This is what Spenser's hair looks like before I brush it in the morning!

8 Months Old
Seriously? Eight months have gone by way too fast! I am not ready for my little baby boy to be so big...However, Spenser is ready to be big and desires so much to keep up with his big sister. He wants to play with her toys, go everywhere she goes, and he really wishes he could wear the big bows she has in her hair (okay, maybe not wear them, but he sure does think they would taste good!). Spenser is oh so close to crawling. He really thinks he can crawl already and that makes for a very angry baby. He has the whole rolling thing down and can roll from one side of the room to the other in about 1.2 seconds. Spenser's personality is really beginning to take shape and it has been so neat to watch him grow. He loves to wrestle with his daddy and snuggle with his mommy. He has begun to wave to us and we get so excited when he does, which makes him do it even more. He has total separation anxiety which makes for fun and stressful church outings (which is really the only time we leave him anywhere). He still loves to nurse and is not a big fan of baby food. We have begun giving him more table foods and he seems to be interested in those a little bit more. Although Spenser, if we let him, would try to survive on nilla wafers alone, being the mean mommy that I am, I insist on him eating other things as well. Spenser has also begun to throw anything and everything he can get his hands on. However, when he begins to take his paci out of his mouth and chunk it across the room, we know that he is really mad!
