Almost 8 Months Old!

We’re about to go for a week at the beach in South Carolina with my family.  We haven’t introduced the boys to sand or salt water yet, but I’m sure they’ll love it!  They’ve gotten to be pretty good travelers with all the trips we’ve taken this year, but Owen gets a little fussy sometimes.  We’ll have lots of pictures when we return, I’m sure!

Both boys are loving eating real food.  We bought an overly priced Vitamix blender and Olivia has become quite the baby food chef.  The boys love her concoctions and most meals include at least one vegetable and a fruit.  Owen LOVES the fruit and puts up with the veggies.  They love avocados, pears, bananas, apples, plums, sweet potatoes, summer squash, peas (we’ll even give them frozen ones to chew on), carrots and a few others!

Both boys are sitting up really well and love playing with each other!  They love the swings at the park and watching all the other kids run around and play!  Both boys love singing songs and watching mommy dance for them.  Their favorite songs are Skiddamarink a Dinky Dink, Jesus Loves Me and a song they learned at the Library Story Time about jumping… also their favorite activity.

Owen and Wiley have become quote adept at swimming, with their floaties of course.  Since they’re sitting up, we’ve nixed the baby bath tub and put them in laundry baskets for baths together.  They LOVE it!

The boys like being in the basket together a lot more than separated.

They each have a favorite toy that they love to play with.

After they wake up, we flip them over and let them spend a little time in bed together before we get them out.  They love to hold each others hand.  It's so adorable, I can't stand it.
