8 months old!

As promised, here's Miles' 8 month update - almost on time!!

8 months has been another fun time for Miles, and he continues to be more mobile each week.  We can no longer leave him on his blanket and expect to find him in roughly the same spot when we come back.  In the time it takes to get some water in the kitchen, he can end up under the dining table!

He army crawls pretty fast (tummy isn't off the ground) and is very determined to get his toys and check out all extension cords and bits of lint that he can get his hands on.  He is becoming more interested in his toys and how things work, but his blocks and piano are still the favorites.

A few weeks ago I was putting away laundry and put Miles in his crib to watch his musical Nemo toy so he'd be safe while I went in and out of the garage.  I came back to find this:

He can't get himself to sitting up from laying down yet, so we're not worried about climbing out, but he LOVES to pull up whenever he can and trying to walk while he hold his hands.  I wish time would just stop sometimes - he's getting so big so fast!

Miles also experienced his first Thanksgiving, and spent time with both the Dillons and Fergusons.  He ate turkey, cranberries, stuffing, cheesy rice, yams... and pie.  And loved pretty much all of it!

A sweet neighbor of Grandma and Grandpa Dillon gave him a cool car to ride in, too.  We didn't have room in the car to bring it home, but hopefully soon!

We also took a few family pictures at my Uncle Kelley's house, and Miles got to see even more family:

So far it's been a great month, and we're looking forward to celebrating Christmas with out little guy.  I'm sure he's going to love all the wrapping paper.
