8 months

I really needed to post this today ...
because tomorrow Miles will be 9 months.
I am so behind in blogging. 
I am so tired and so busy and my house always needs attention before the blog.
Sorry, its the truth.

Anyway back to the title of this post. 
8 Months.

Miles rocks a babyhawk and is already due for another hair cut.
What can we say...
the boy has good hair.

Miles has discovered the grass!
Fall isn't here yet in California, so we are still outside in onesies and no shorts daily.
He enjoys relaxin on a blanket pulling grass and trying to eat it.
Magnus runs around and keeps us entertained.

8 months has brought not 1, not 2 but 3 teeth.
The two top teeth and one bottom tooth.
You can see a tiny white speck in this picture.

We have a great love and fascination with cords and plugs.
Every time I vacuum, Miles is there to play with the cord...which eventually he tries to eat.
He loves string too.
He will pull on shoe laces and try to gobble them up,
He pulls on my dangling apron strings from behind just so he can eat it.

Miles doesnt sit still in his high chair any longer.
He twists and turns and likes to drop things.
I love to watch him look over the tray onto the floor to look for his toy.
and his UH OH is adorable.

Miles is on the move!
He crawls everywhere and plays on his knees.
He is using his pointer finger a lot lately. (especially on my nose)
He loves taking baths.
He is a fan of squash and drinking from his sippy cup.
He adores Magus and has fun playing with the kennel and his water bowl.
Miles is pulling himself up to stand at the couch, bathtub, stairs, and toys.
 Sitting for too long isn't fun anymore. Just last night he took a step to the side while standing at the couch....he'll be cruising very soon.
He always wants to hold the remote control and push all the buttons.
He likes to play up by the fireplace and look out the back sliding door.
He SCREAMS and CRIES when I say "Miles, do you want a BABA"...ummm I'll take that as a yes.

He is such a fun little guy.
He truly is a joy.
 Happy 8 Months little one.

It's apple season! 
A group of my church friends caravan-ed up to Oak Glen to pick yummy crisp apples. 
It just so happens to be the same orchard Romney grew up by and worked at as a teenager. 
Romney would ride his bike up to the Farm at age 14 to help give tours for field trips, cute huh?
It was fun to be there near the mountains and pick fresh organic fruit. 
We picked laundry baskets full.
It was good to be out in the sunshine...
 with our family and friends....
It is nice to have friends who are willing to lug a HEAVY baby around for you while you run W A Y far to use the bathroom...
it was darling to see the kids run from row to row with sticks and rocks...
it was cute to see kiddies helping their mommies...
It was great to chat with friends...
and it was SUPER FUN to gallup and chant HORSEY HORSEY so Miles would enjoy the rest of his stay in the bjorn!
We got home with baskets full...
and got to canning.
Now I'm stocked up on homemade applesauce and apple pie filling.
...and I don't even like pie...
