8 Months Old Today

Today is Mac's 8 month birthday. I can already tell that this whole "Mac's Birthday" thing is not going to set well with me. I am already depressed every year about my impending day of doom but seriously how am I supposed to handle another one!! I can't believe my little, tiny, itsy-bitsy, bouncing baby boy is 8 MONTHS OLD! {excuse me while I locate the box of tissues} UGHH...

But, alas, it is true. Today is the 17th and eight months ago I (we) were blessed with the most amazing gift. Mac.

Here are some 8 month highlights:
~ crawling everywhere!
~ pulling up on everything! (sometimes pantsing me in the process!)
~ he has added the LaLaLa's to his vocabulary list.
~ he has eaten english peas, squash, okra, mangos, peaches, sweet potato, butternut
squash and green beans.
~ over the next couple of weeks he will try for the first time: chicken, avocado and
~ he is wearing size 4 diapers and size 18 month clothes... both are a little big
but he is in between sizes now.
~ he weighs at least 23 pounds.
~ he loves playing with the springy door stops
~ his favorite toy is the base of the stacking rings

Mac, I love you so much but please stop growing so fast. You're making Mommy sad and good boys don't want to make Mommy sad... Right? dang.


  1. Happy 8 month birthday Mac. Grandma loves you and wish I could see you more often. Tell momma to not be sad, it just keeps getting better the more you grow and learn. Love grandma in AR.

  2. LOL, I have forgoten to ask... why do you hate birthdays!

    Happy 8th Month Birthday, Mac!!

  3. I laughed out loud about the pantsing. Too funny! I feel sad sometimes too when thinking about how fast Gabe is growing, but Mac's grandma is right...it keeps getting better!

  4. Oh, I can't believe he's so big! Jack and I miss seeing him every day! He's just perfect and you guys are thriving! Enjoy...
