And on this farm...

Well, our little man is growing like a weed. He's now 8 months old and is so very active. He's pulling up to standing, cruising the furniture and crawling everywhere. He thinks every time we say "No" when he tries to touch the insides of the VCR or one of the light sockets that we are playing a game. He laughs at us.
We had him weighed & measured when he turned 8 months old on Sept. 29th and he was 19 lbs 12 ozs and was 28 1/4 ins in length. He looks so long when he stands up.
This past week his top 2 teeth came in. We had a heck of a time with him at night. Mommy was a walking zombie at work all week. Nights were a definite challenge and so exhausting.
We are giving him a variety of foods to try. He still had liked just about everything. Daddy bought him some biter biscuits from HEB today that he loved! In this picture I had just fed Renner carrots and Ryder was waiting to see if he would get any of Renner's leftovers. I call this my little redneck picture because of the dirty face and stretched out t-shirt.
Today Mike & I decided to take a little family outing since the weather was so nice. We took Renner to Old McDonald's Farm in Humble to see the animals and to pick out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch (well, it's not really a patch, it's more like pumpkins on picnic tables). When we first arrived at the farm we took a train ride around the farm so that we could see everything. Renner seemed to be mesmerized by all of the animals. There was one ostrich type bird that he saw first that he stared at for the longest time. He loved the horses, cow, llama & pigs. He didn't know what to think about the deer and by the time we made it to the rabbits Renner was tuckered out. As soon as we got back to the car and Mike sat him in his carseat his eyes closed and it was sleepy time.
Things are going well and his personality is really starting to shine through. He's so content playing by himself and seems to be quite independent but still very much a Mommy's boy. He loves his Mommy & Daddy very much and does so well with his Gran during the day time.
Until next time...(Who knows...the rate he's going with his cruising, he may be walking when I write again!)
