7.75 Months

Luke is rapidly approaching 8 months of age. In that time he has reached the following milestones:

Rolling over
Rolling over the other way
Saying, "Mama"
Saying, "Dada"
Saying, "Yaya"
Inventing the word, "Yaya."
Growing extremely long sideburns...

and the list goes on a little bit.

He's well on his way to crawling. He rocks back and forth on his hands and knees. I was hoping he'd wait a few more months to become mobile because I quite enjoy not having to chase him around the house but I'd give it two weeks tops.

Having this amazingly brilliant, well-mannered, incredibly articulate young man in our lives for the past eight months has resulted in a quite a lot of video footage. I was recently watching some of our almost eight month old footage and realized that our son has become much more handsome with time. Although in our euphoric new parent haze, we couldn't imagine our son becoming any more attractive than he was at birth. Here is some of said footage. You can see how the months have been good to ol' Luke.


  1. "Yaya" is Lukese for "Thanks for having me and for being the best parents ever!" That little guy is so thoughtful. Who thinks to express that kind of gratitude at that age?! Can't wait to see this amazingly brilliant, well-mannered, incredibly articulate young man!

  3. I need video of this almost crawling.
