Happy 8 Months Little Man!

Today Reeves is 8 months old! He now weighs 19 lbs 4 oz and is 27 1/4 inches long... he is definitely growing!!!

He has reached so many milestones since we have been home. Amongst the many accomplishments, he has started taking a role in the feeding/eating process, which definitely make it more of a challenge for mommy and daddy... but it is so worth it to see him having so much fun and taking charge!

Here are some photos from our yurting trip with some our friends and thier son this past weekend.

Giving the thumbs up at the doctors office... such a trooper!
