Beau Harrison at 8 Months

The Beau Man is 8 months old!  It's ridiculous that his pics for this months show him wearing shorts, but it was hot this weekend!  Anyway, here's what he's up to this month:
I didn't weigh Beau this month, but I'm guessing he's around 17 pounds.  He's wearing 9-12 month clothes & size 3 diapers.
We call this his Pac-man smile
Could he be any more handsome?

In addition to crawling, Beau can sit himself up from crawling or laying down & can pull up to his knees or to standing.  He definitely has a fondness for mischief & likes to see what he can get into that falls into the "not for Beau" category.
"Not for Beau" is the most commonly heard phrase around our house.  Jake & Mal say it repeatedly any time Beau is actually doing something he shouldn't & also just whenever they want the toy he has.  We've had many lessons on the appropriate use of the phrase.
My little man has gotten much more into his toys lately & will play happily by himself for a while as long as we're nearby.  He loves his music table, any kind of ball & books.
This cutie is a loudmouth & babbles constantly.  He can say "Dada" & also says "Mama" when he's fussing for me to pick him up.  Today he said "Nana" twice, much to my mom's delight.
We're continuing to add finger foods to his repertoire, & he's pretty talented at getting most of them into his mouth.  He loves veggies, toast, cheese & Cheerios.
As you can see, Beau is a man of many expressions & is full of smiles & giggles.  I'm so thankful I get to be his mommy.  Happy 8 months, Beau Harrison!
