"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

8 months

Tanner is 8 months old! Each month that goes by, I have a tendency to say "This has been my favorite month!" And again, going into this next month, we are absolutely loving the stage Tanner is at. He is so much fun, and so active! This month Tanner took his first ride in the grocery cart! One of Tanner's favorite things to do is to crawl into his big brother's room, pull up at the train table, and play! It is so cute to see him stand there and play with the trains. He is a curious little boy. Always standing at the glass sliding door and peeking out to see what's going on outside. This past month, we have noticed a new habit Tanner has formed. Sucking his thumb! He never did this as a newborn, and never was too interested in the paci. Unfortunately, Tanner has been battling ear infections, and we have read that sometimes kids will suck their thumb because it makes their ears feel better. Although I am hoping it doesn't become a permanent habit, it sure is cute! We have really been enjoying the weather outside with the boys lately. Carson loves to ride his bike and walk up and down the sidewalk, and Tanner thoroughly enjoys the swing in our tree! He usually slips into this deep trance and sometimes falls fast asleep.
Our baby gates got put back up in our house this month. The kitchen is completely gated off, but he loves to stand at the gate and watch Mommy put the dishes away. Tanner also has learned he can crawl under Carson's bed! Not good! We can't believe how fast the time is going, but we thoroughly enjoy our TT (and our Carson!) to the fullest everyday!
