Skylar Update

Well it has been awhile since I've posted anything about the most popular member of our family :) Have I mentioned how much I LOVE spending my days with this little man?

Sorry that it is sideways....at least it is a cute face though!

Skylar has changed sooo much in the past few weeks. It has been so fun to see him develop his own little personality and begin to interact with and explore the world around him. He doesn't quite crawl yet, but he is definitely mobile and gets into everything! He can get up on all fours and rock back and forth, but he still prefers army crawling to wherever he needs to go. His favorite location? The diaper rack. He loves to lift himself up and pull down the diapers, wipes, and burp cloths and wave them over his head! I figure there are worse things he could be getting into :)

I sometimes wonder why we bother buying Skylar toys since so far his preference is for coupon mailers that we get in the mail, the trashcan, a plastic hanger, and mommy's shoes.
He loves to pull the trashcan over and climb inside of it. I don't normally let him do this since we throw diapers in there, but I still keep finding him inside of it. Silly child.

We didn't have a check-up since his six-month appointment, but at that appointment he hadn't gained any weight and had started to level out on the growth chart. This was a problem because he was already pretty low to begin with. We went in about two weeks ago and he had gained weight again, so we're not too worried about that anymore. He now weighs 17 lbs and 6 oz, and is just under the 25th percentile.

We also have a new little baby in the family! My sister Brittny gave birth to a little boy named Daniel Curtis Hansen. It has been soo fun to have a newborn around again, but it has also been eye-opening to me to realize just how far Skylar has come! Until about three weeks ago I had thought that I just had this cute tiny little snuggler, but now with Daniel around I'm starting to realize just how much Skylar has grown and learned in the past 8 months. We are so pleased with his progress.

We just love this little boy, our Skylar Smiler, Sky-Sky, SkyRy, Crabby Patty, Wiggles and Giggles. We love watching him wave his plastic hanger around like a sword, roll the entire length of our apartment to get his basketball, and get super excited when he hears Daddy open the front door after coming home from work. He definitely keeps us on our toes, and keeps things exciting :)

How on earth did he become 8 months old so fast?! Little stinker's growing up way too fast! I feel some play dates/destruction parties coming on (because I'm seriously convinced destruction is 100% innate in little boys...)

I know right! Can you believe your baby is over a year?! These kids need to slow down and let us catch up :) And I feel some destruction parties coming up too....at least we have already accepted the inevitable.
