Shrade is 8 months old!

Our walk on the new Tacoma Narrows Bridge. It's a mile one way. We walked this bridge 2 years ago right after it was built.

My two men! Aren't they so handsome?

Shrade likes to look for me...upside down and backwards!

Shrade is learning to count by 2's.

Looking in the walking guide for our next adventure.

So I tried to take a picture on the rocking chair, but Shrade wanted to do everything but sit. I think this was the only that turned out.

Hi mom!

Shrade fell asleep in his play yard. Too cute.

Shrade grabs the spoon and wants to feed himself.

Shrade is 22lbs and still 27.5 inches long. He sits well and plays independently for 20 minutes. He likes peek-a-boo and nightly walks with mom and dad. Shrade now has 6 teeth. He eats 3 meals a day with lots of fruits and veggies as well as 32 oz of formula. The hardest thing is getting that first bite! Sometimes he spits- no, no! Shrade continues to take 2 good naps a day and sleeps through the night about 10-12 hours. Shrade had his first plane trip this month. He did well. Shrade is starting to babble and hold his sippy cup. One new thing that is helpful is that Shrade likes to be upside down so I can clean under his chin!

Shrade loves books and is fascinated with alphabet flashcards that mama reads with him. He also loves music and playing with blocks. Shrade is having fun meeting new friends and having play dates. Anybody want to play? :)

We are so blessed with this little one and praise God everyday for this bundle of joy.

What a cutie! Shrade needs a play date with Harmony. She is 18 months old now, and also weighs in at 22 lbs so they are the same size!
