Things I love about my 8 month old

Every month MM gets cuter and I love having a baby more and more… Still not worked out whether he is actually getting easier or we are getting more competent (or a bit of both!?) but this month I am in love with the following:
– his beaming smile when he sees his mama
– his beaming smile when he sees his own reflection in the mirror
– generally just his beaming smile
– the way he jibber jabbers all day long and pauses at opportune moments so I can get a word in like a real conversation
– how he says ‘mama’ and ‘dada’ for no other reason than when he does H and I get so excited we clap and cheer him
– the way he puts his arms out for us
– the excited look on his face when he rolls over
– the way he copies everything (we should have really started watching our language as no doubt his first *real* word will be an expletive!)
– how he remembers that all the doors and drawers open and close and will insist on spending at least 10 minutes checking they do indeed still open and close on entering every room in the house
– how he can’t yet sit properly or crawl but insists on ‘walking’ everywhere (my poor back!!)
– how he cackles with delight when we pull funny faces and/or kiss his tummy
– how he likes it when we sing to him and if he likes the song will ‘sing’ along
– how he will be all whingey with us one minute and then suddenly be lovely and attention seeking when we have visitors
– how he’s a perfect excuse not to have to speak to one of those annoying people trying to get you to sign up for stuff in the street as he’s either screaming or sleeping (and if I stop he’ll wake up)
– that his favourite TV show is Tipping Point and I know it’s an hour of silence!
– that he’s the cutest child in existence (obviously not biased!!!)
– he knows how to kiss (well sort of…. When we ask for a kiss he gobs his mouth onto our cheeks!!)
