Playing Catch up

It's been far too long since I have blogged. We have been so busy with the holidays and a few other things that haven't allowed me to blog...but have given me lots to blog about!

Hutch Irvin is 8 1/2 months old. He truly is the sweetest baby and I think he knows it :) Here is what he is up to:
-He has 6 teeth! Two on bottom and four coming in up top.
-Crawls all over the place. He just discovered the dogs water bowl...I can't keep him away!
-He crawls up to anything and everything to pull up. He just started pulling up to the couch and walking around it.
-HE HOLDS HIS BOTTLE! Finally! haha. This helps a lot!
-He got pretty picky about food for a few weeks after we got home from Lubbock for the holidays but I'm proud to say that I made a huge grocery run the other day to get him some good food and he is eating much better!
-He eats sweet potatoes, acorn squash, butternut squash (I roasted one and then baked fries with another..he loved both), yogurt, BANANAS...HIS FAVORITE, cucumbers, cheese, kiwi, name it; he eats is. We just started him on table food. I was really hesitant to do this because he seemed to have a sensitive stomach with certain things. He has really taken to table food and loves it! He ate half of my bowl of potato soup, my sandwich with chicken and avocado, a few bites of jello and banana bread!
-He loves drinking from a sippy cup. He does better with the straw style.
-He stands up in his crib when he wakes up.
-Says "mama". We can ask him what a puppy dog does and he will pant...sometimes.
-He loves to copy the sounds that we make.
-He got a blow up bath tub for Christmas and loves it! He can sit up and play with the water now without falling over.
- Still sleeps so good at night from 8:30-8:00 am.
-His naps get shorter everyday it seems. I think it's time for us to end one nap so he will take one big nap.
-He loves the dogs! Hattie is the best with him. She will lay in the floor and let him crawl all over her. Lola is still a little much for him...but she loves him! If Hutch even looks in Wesley's direction he will get up and leave the room :)
-He waves bye bye
-He claps his hands
-Gives daddy a high five
-Loves to turn his bedroom light off and on by pulling the strings. He also holds out his sweet little hand when we are walking out of his room so he can hit the light switch to turn his light off.
-He crawls to his bathroom when it is bath time and patiently waits for daddy to get everything ready.

He is getting so tall! I feel like he is gaining a little bit of weight but he definitely is not a chunky baby. We are having so much fun with him and love to see him grow and learn new things each day. He is constantly making us laugh.  Here are some new pictures I took after church. Enjoy!

Stay tuned for more!
