Seth is 8 months!

I have a picture of all three boys in this sweater. It's one of our favorites!
Technically, Seth doesn't really hit the 8 month mark this month because there is no February 29, but we are celebrating it anyway. Seth can do lots of things now. He still can't crawl, but all of our kids were late bloomers in that department, so we're not too worried. He does love to dive for toys. Seth sits up and then sees a toy he wants (usually one of his brothers' toys) and he suddenly lunges for it. Then he ends up on his tummy, which makes him angry. Just this week Seth finally figured out how to roll from his tummy to his back. He has been going from his back to his tummy for at least 3 months, but the tummy-to-back rolling was a challenge for him.

Seth loves to eat what we are eating. He'll put up with baby food a little bit, but he really wants whatever I have on my plate. He is starting to pick up food by himself, so he LOVES those baby puffs and goldfish.

Seth finally loves books, well, the right books. He has about 10 books that we must read to him every day. Whenever I try to introduce a new book to him, he usually pushes it to the side and tries to grab one of his favorites. I did get him up to 10 books, but it has taken me 8 long months.

Seth is almost as big as Dax, but he loves his brothers!
Seth pulls up on everything he can, or at least tries. He really, really wants to walk like his big brothers, so who knows? Maybe he'll skip crawling and go right to walking. Seth would have me walk him around the house all day if he could have his way.

Seth loves baths. He loves to sit in the water and splash and chew on toys. He has so much fun in there that Dax and Mark always want to take baths with him now. Rub a dub dub... three boys in the tub!

Seth is a very good and happy baby. He isn't a big laugher, but he will smile at anyone. He is easy going and flexible about his schedule. I guess he is a third child, so he just has to be. We are so glad to have this chunky monkey in our family.

I tried really hard to keep this picture G-rated!

Don't you love his fluffy hair?


  1. Adorable! I can't believe he is 8 months old. What a little sweetie!

  3. My favorite baby! I really hope that one book Seth left at my house wasn't one of The Ten.....

  4. He is getting so big! He looks like Dax.
