Looking Back: Eighth Month

Eli's eighth month started off with a bang...LITERALLY! He celebrated his first 4th of July by getting together with the family at Mamaw's house. There was lots of good food, but he wasn't able to have any just yet. I did manage to sneak a little bite of ice cream sandwich to him though :)

We continued to enjoy the pool outside. It was so hot on some days though that we had to wait until after 5 o'clock before we could even go outside. Eli still rocked the curly mohawk, too!

Eli rode his first carousel with Mommy and enjoyed every minute of it.

He also had a fun time playing in the sprinklers at his Zue-Zue's house.

Eli and I took a trip to visit Grammy and Pop for a few days and did so much while we were there!

He got his hair cut for the first time! He sat in my lap the entire time and did great! I was such a proud Mama!

We went to the boardwalk and he rode on the carousel not once, not twice, but THREE times with Grammy, Pop, and me. He loved it!

Eli also started cruising while holding onto furniture. I encouraged him by placing puffs around our coffee table. Eli really enjoyed walking around picking them up and eating them.

We also took our first vacation as a family when we went to Destin, FL, for a few days. Zue-Zue went with us to help with Eli and Mammy and Uncle Clare even came for a couple of days. It was so much fun! I can't wait for us to go back to the beach again!

While we were at the beach, Eli used a mesh feeder for the first time and we discovered his love of fruit. He gobbled 1/2 a watermelon by himself (slight exaggeration, but he LOVED it!).

We went to Fudpucker's with the whole group and Eli got to try a lemon for the first time. He reacted just like we thought he would :)

Love all these looking back posts you're doing. What a great idea! They will be great if you decide to do a bloggy book too!
