8 months

dear lucky #3,
(your birthday is really on the third--mom is just a lil' late with the letter this month)
hey! baaa baa baaahh bahh bahh! you continue to be our mischievous bulldozer, scooting like a wounded soldier all over the room. you follow dad and me wherever we go--from the living room to the kitchen to the laundry room to our room! all of the exercise is good for you and is helping you slim down a bit.

parks, you've had such a great month. you are happier than ever. dad and i love to tickle your tummy to hear your big belly laugh. you are getting much better at eating. you eat oatmeal for breakfast, a food for lunch, and rice cereal for dinner.

we decided to let you cry it out a few weeks ago. i'm sorry, i'm sorry, but you needed to learn how to fall asleep on your own. you cried for about 25 minutes and it was so sad to leave you in your crib, but you survived and now you are such a great sleeper! you usually sleep from 8:30pm-6:30am with 2 2hr. naps during the day (9ish and 1ish).

dad is home with you most days because of his awesome schedule at the fire dept., and you two are having fun bonding. i hope you and dad are best friends when you grow up. you endured another 12 hr road trip to Wisconsin and got to see both of your grandmas and all (3) of your aunts and uncles this month!

we love you tons and can't wait to see you grow and smile every day. love ya munch!!

oh i almost forgot your vital stats:
22 lbs
28.5 inches
0 teeth
0 words

and of course the entry wouldn't be complete without a few the sunsets by our house!
