Mitchell Man at 8 months

Eight Months with our Mitchell Man!

The funny thing about baby #2 is how little one-on-one time you get to spend with them so Denny and I have been making extra efforts for some individual time with this little buddy.

Party time with Daddy! Just this month he started saying “Dada”!

 

This kid is all boy.  Check out his 8-month photo shoot.  I’m sweating again just looking at the pictures.  He is a blur of activity, giggles and spit ups.

 

Soooo busy!

…………………………….

Here is how our little monkey spends his time:

::  Cruising around the furniture  ::

This guy is on the go.  He is ready to take steps on his own any day now.  I can’t imagine how pumped he will be to keep up with his big sister.  He likes to crawl around the house in attempt to keep up with her but he always cries when she gets out of his sight.

Hi Mom!

Clothes optional when you look this cute!


“Whoa!”

…………………………….

::  Boy Time  ::
Littlest M loves his guy time.  Now that football is in full swing, he likes to spend Sundays with Daddy in just a onesie (Mitchell in a onesie, not Denny) cheering for the Bills and Steelers.  He also likes cruising around on the Laugh n’ Learn pup with his big cousins.

 

“Let’s tighten up these lug nuts things behind the pup ears, and find some torque something-or-other.”

He can also hold his own against Uncle Scott!

Jab, jab, jab, right hook.

 

…………………………….

::  Dreaming about the day he can participate in big kid activities  ::

This picture says it all.

Someday buddy, someday.

…………………………….

::  Laughing and having fun with Makenzie  ::

These two are awesome together.  Mitchell loves it when his sister wakes up in the morning and always crawls in to see her, and then greets her with tons of grins.  These two love to hang out in the crib together.

 

Giggle fest!

Watching for Daddy!

::  On a very serious note, we’re finally getting answers on all this medical stuff  ::

This month has undoubtedly been the biggest roller coaster thus far of having kids.  All rational thought goes out the window when it comes to your baby’s health.

Mitchell continues to have pass out spells.  These are completely terrifying, but we now know they are harmless.  He was diagnosed with involuntary breath holding spells.   Read more about these here.  If anyone knows another family dealing with this, please let us know!

He did really well during his EEG and we ruled our seizure activities.  Yay!  More tests to come next week due to his reflux but we now know definitively about the breath holding incidents.  Thanks for the good thoughts you’ve been sending our way.

He was a champ!

…………………………….

We love this little guy so much and we could not imagine our world without his sweet smile.  The rest of October will bring our first family of four vacation and then Mitchell’s 1st Halloween.  Let’s hope that everyone aboard Southwest Flight 983 shares his enthusiasm.

We love you to the moon & back Littlest M!
