We are 8 months old!

Ellen and Cole are 8 months old today! I really can't believe how fast time is going. Before I know it, they are going to be a year old and Baby Boy will be here. Yikes!

Ellen got up first from her afternoon nap, so she got to help Big Cole do some work. She even played on her own laptop! (She loves her laptop. We can put her on the floor with it, and she'll press the buttons to make music play and will even kick her feet along with it. It's pretty funny to watch.)

Then right before church we went outside to take a few pictures. I think it was still a little too bright outside, so both of them are squinting in some of the pictures. They were so interested in the cars passing by it was hard to get them to look at the camera.

I'm still getting used to my new camera lens, so these pictures are necessarily the best ever, but I did at least capture the moment. Cole had to work this weekend, so it was hard to get out and practice, but I'm determined to get better at it.

And before I end, an update on Cole - we had him weighed on Friday, and he weighed in at a whopping 13 pounds 15 ounces. So he has gained a pound in about 6 weeks. He's still sitting on the same spot on the growth curve, which is good, but we'd like to see him move up the curve (he's about to fall off!). We've upped his intake of solids, so hopefully that will help. Our next appointment is in about a month, so we'll reassess then.

Hope y'all had a great weekend!
