Cito - 8 months...and a little more

So I totally missed the ball on taking Cito's pictures on November 9, in part because my little monthly numbers have somehow disappeared.  No one in this house is taking ownership of the missing numbers but I have a feeling they might be hiding in the room of a certain 2 year old.  But never fear!  I've hunted down the same numbers so here we go a few days late.
Eating:  Meats, veggies, fruits.  Doesn't like green veggies but loves any orange veggie.  Will eat almost any fruit.  Loves beef but chicken and turkey are come and go.  Harris has also figured out how to separate the good stuff in one bite from the bad stuff by spitting it out.  I need a apron to feed the kid.  Still BFing - I was totally set to start weaning but after these last few weeks of sickness, I've decided a little time on the pump is much better than a sick kid and lack of sleep so pump on my friends!

Sleeping:  Ugh!  Sickness has been my nemesis this month with ear infections, an asthma diagnosis, coughing and colds so sleep has been a little hard to come by.  But for a kid that's been sick for a month, you'd never know it during the day time.  He is an excellent napper though.

Moving:  The kid is EVERYWHERE these days!  He's crawling at full speed and pulling up to stand on anything he can get his hands on.  And very unlike his sister, Cito is afraid of nothing so we've had our fair share of bumps and bruises.  I have a feeling this is going to be a trend with child #2.
Happy, happy, happy!  I think he might be the smiliest kid on the block.  He has no trouble being passed off to a complete stranger if they'll keep him entertained.  Harris just adores his big sister and could watch her all day long.

I'm asked the question a lot if I see a difference in boys vs. girls.  My answer has been no up to this month but I think I can officially change my answer.  I don't know if its a gender thing or just the difference in my two children but Harper was my timid, extremely observant, laid-back and a bit shy child.  Harris is my social butterfly, a mover and a shaker and has no fear.  It really is fun having two kids that are so different and I love them each for their individuality.
Totally sums up my attempt at taking 8 month pictures
