An update on all things Landon (with pictures)*

7 Months Old
*since my last month-by-month post was when he was 1-month old!

@ Cheekwood Gardens
Landon is now 8 months old and on the move in every which way possible. He is 17 pounds (16th percentile) and 27 inches tall (18th percentile) at our last doctor visit and wearing a size 2 diaper during the day and a size 3 at night. His clothing sizes range from 3 months to 12 months. Go figure.

He has been sleeping in his crib since he was 3 months old. I just now put his bed-side sleeper away. It was a sad, sad day in the Noorman household.

Standing Up!
Landon has been creeping since 5 months and sitting on his own since 6.5 months. At 7 months, he starting crawling and at 8 months is now standing on his own and attempting to walk. Todd and I are finding something new every day that we need to baby proof as this kid is everywhere and FAST! His favorite thing to get into is Gracie's water bowl and food dish.

Rice Cereal Face
We started solids at 4 months old which he absolutely loved! We started off with rice cereal then added homemade pureed fruits and veggies and oatmeal. Now, Landon is eating food with texture, Cheerios, puffs and yogurt melts. He got his first tooth when he was 7 months old and now has 2 more - 2 on the bottom and one on top. In addition to solids, he is drinking anywhere from 20 ounces to 30 ounces of formula a day. He holds his own bottle. *Sigh*

Bath Time Fun!
Landon takes a bath in our bath tub now. At around 5 months, our bathroom was getting flooded at bath time. Between him splashing and doing body flops, there would be more water on the floor than in the tub! We tried using a bath seat, but that lasted all of one minute. He just wanted to splash and play with his bath toys.

Best Buds
Landon is still the happiest baby ever, though he has started to get whiny when he has to sit still, making diaper and clothing changes a dreaded event for whoever has to do them. He loves Gracie, Elmo, things with wheels, things that make noise, swimming and putting whatever he can find in his mouth, including Gracie's food and a lava rock from our fireplace.

Sitting Big
Landon stops whatever he is doing when he hears his name, sits down and looks up at you with a smile. I have a hard time saying no to Grace, so I can only imagine the time I am going to have saying no to his cute face. Most recently, Landon has learned to clap. It is awkward looking, but super cute, too!

Good Night!
Ahhhhhh....he is growing up too fast! I told him just yesterday that I wanted him to stay my tiny boy forever!
