Merritt Wylie 8 months!

We have an official mover and shaker!! A few days after I posted his 7 month pic/stats, he started crawling!! Ecckk!! Since then, he hasn't looked back!! For a couple of weeks now he has started pulling up on everything and has just started "cruising" a little (walking along while holding onto something) I just can't believe how big he is getting!!
He is loving closing and opening the gates on his farms and rolling his Pull and Learn Pony along on the floor while banging the blocks on his back. But mostly he still wants to play with the things he cant have! He loves soft blankets and stuffed animals too!
He is doing soo great with his finger food, and has entirely given up baby food at lunch! His favorites are small pieces of peaches, oranges, green beans, and peas...he also loves baby meat sticks..which actually smell like dog food! ha! Other than that change, his eating schedule has stayed the same.
He now has 6 teeth! 3 on the top and 3 on the bottom, with more on the way!
We wont get an official weight and height until 9 months..but he is probably around 22 pounds. He is starting to wear his 12-18 month Gymboree clothes and 18 month in's a little big, but not for long! We also just moved up to size 4 diapers!
He is getting more vocal by the day and now says MaMa, even when he's not just mad :) He is also now waivng bye bye and clapping too!
We love watching him change everyday and enjoy every second of being his Mommy and Daddy!!
