You are now eight and a half months old. Your babyhood is flying by...slow down! This month, I've often pondered why 9 months of pregnancy seems endless while nearly 9 months of babyhood goes by in the blink of an eye. You've started crawling and pulled yourself up to stand this weekend. It's time to start baby-proofing our house. We've had a few close calls with you putting Legos in your mouth. Luckily, we haven't had to take you to the emergency room for any accidents (yet. Quick, knock on wood!).
