Eight Months

On Tuesday, Ryland turned 8 months old!  He is growing too fast!

His newest accomplishment is growing teeth.  His first one just broke through last week!  He's been a little more "clingy" lately, perhaps due to teething.  He went on his first out of state trip this weekend...camping at the Royal Ranger FCF Family Camp Powamu in Chandler, Oklahoma.  It was a lot of fun with the whole family.  When all the pictures get gathered from everyone's cameras, I'll make a separate post all about it.  Not a lot has changed with Ryland's play preferences this month.  One of his favorite toys has become the rubber bracelet he got free at one of the tents at the balloon race last month...I guess it's just right for chewing on.  He also loves to suck on the foot of the vibrating monster that hangs from his car seat handle.  New foods we've added to his diet include avacado, barley cereal, applesauce and apple juice, peas, and carrots, as well as teething biscuits.  In the pictures below, you will see him smiling after eating one of his "crackers."  So far, he hasn't refused to eat anything we've given him, but he has obvious favorites (usually the sweeter stuff...taking after Mommy!).
