8 months


Mister Anderson, 2/3 of the way to his first birthday.  Oh, my. Four more signs and we're done.  Oh, sad. 

As fun as the outcome may be (for me), our "every-17th-of-the-month photo session" was so much easier before he was a moving, squealing, busy little man with a mind of his own.  Month one went something like this: tape up sign, prop baby on couch, get shot with baby's eyes open...done!  At eight months old, our little guy has other ideas.  "Oh, neat!  I'm on the couch!  Hey!  I'm sitting!  On the couch!  Hey!  Hi mom!  Whatcha doin'?!  Dad!  Hey!  What's this?!  Paper!  Yum!  Paper!  Hey!  What's that?!  Camera!  Yum!  Camera!  Hey!  I can crawl!  This is so cool!  Look!  I'm crawlll....oh, HEY, PAPER!  PAPER!  YUM!  HEY!  CAMERA!"  You get the picture.  I got the pictures too.  79 in total, just one of the boy, the sign, and a semi-smile.  The rest, well, they looked a lot like this:


"Got the paper, now hey, lemme at that camera!"

"Hey!  Where'd that paper go?!"

Ha ha ha!! That's great. I love the one of him chomping on the paper.

*sigh*

The little guy's getting so big.

So funny! We have the same thing, too. Aidan just wants to eat his sign now instead of posing calmly and happily. I can't believe how soon we'll be celebrating our 2 A's first birthdays! Sad and exciting all at the same time...

Is he pulling himself up already too?

I love the picture story. These 8 month old boys are so mobile right now!

Candice said...

Yeah, I have 100 similar pics for each month. LOL

Anne said...

Yum, I love paper too!

YOU ARE LYING!!! He is NOT 8 months old already. Holy crap! That is all I can say.

He is quite photogenic. You could make some cash off that kid - you know, if you want him to grow up to be totally effed up and all.

that's stinkin' adorable, lee. Wowza. I can't wait to have that action...times two. Uh-oh, I'm in for it.

So cute, that little Anderson. I need to make it to a GTG so I can meet this sweetie pie.
