Boomer turns 8 months old in 26 minutes and he is more adorable than ever. Major milestones for his parents' sanity is that he now naps in his crib regularly, is happy sitting on the floor playing with toys for 10-20 minutes at a time, and usually sleeps through the night with no problems. He's inherited the late-night gene from me, as he's usually not ready for bed until almost 10 p.m., which means he often stays up later than his grandparents! But he sleeps in until 7:30 to 8:30 in the morning, so it's a pretty good trade-off as far I'm concerned. He's also a champion eater, and so far we haven't found any foods he won't go for. Although he's not crawling yet--the poor kid hates to be on his stomach--he stands up really well with something to lean on, and I wouldn't be surprised if he learns to walk before he learns to crawl. My happiest moments as a dad are how excited he is to see me when I get home from work, and how I have all sorts of ways to make him laugh. Here's a couple of good photos where you can see him hanging out with his old man and another where he's diligently at work trying to figure out which monkey is his.
