Eight Months

Look who is eight months old already!  Can't believe how fast this year is going.  And, yes, I know it's only going to get worse!
Lincoln is definitely keeping us busy and on our toes these days.  He's crawling all over the place and standing up on everything he can hold on to.  It's fun to watch him explore his new-found world.  The other day he was crawling in the kitchen and tried opening the cupboard door.  I was holding the top of it shut because it was where I keep some of our cleaning products.  Well, he just KNEW it should open.  So he tried a couple times with his left hand, then he scooted over to get a better grip on it with his right hand.  Then he got up on his knees to really get a strong grip on it to get it open.  Finally he pulled himself up to standing so he could really get at it.  But that's when mommy stepped in and scooped him up!  He sure is persistent though!  (maybe stubborn?!) 
For his eight-month birthday, he grew another tooth!  It's been a rough go-around this time - the bottom two feel like a breeze compared to these top teeth, and he seems to be growing them two at a time.  Only one of his top teeth has poked through so far, but the other one is right there.  He's been in a lot of pain, plus fighting a nasty cold.  But he's such a trooper and is still as happy as ever!  So thankful to the Lord for this amazing and precious gift!
