Bugga Update

Okay, I know I talk a lot about Bugga, but it seems like his growth and accomplishments are happening so fast! Just yesterday I walked in to greet the boys in the morning and came face to face with this scene...

Needless to say, I was a bit surprised! There was Bugga, standing up in his crib and I'm thinking, "When did he learn to do this?!" I guess it is a skill he mastered just yesterday, and now he won't stop doing it. It's funny, though, because to get down, he simply lets go and falls like a felled tree. :)

He was so proud of himself!

And I couldn't believe how long he stayed up there. I kept thinking he'd get tired, but he never did fall or get down before I took him out (I got tired of waiting for him to tire). :)

Buddha loves playing with Bugga...to the point where it has become problematic in their night time routine! I put two tired boys down tonight at just after 8:00pm, and I could still hear Buddha jumping around and Bugga giggling at 9:30pm! Oh well, just so long as they stay in their bedroom, right? :)

So, the other thing I was going to mention is that Bugga is now 21lbs! He is eight months old today and he's 21lbs already! He doesn't look that big, but I think it's because he's tall. I definitely feel that 21lbs when I try to lug him around on my hip! What a chunk!

no offense liz, but you do not have a chunker. Try 20lbs at 4 months and steadily growing from there. I had a huge left arm muscle.

Ha! That's awesome! I don't know if you read my mom's comment a while back, but my younger brother, Joseph, was 26lbs at 4 months! You must have cream for milk. :) I'm jealous of your left arm muscle...I could use that right about now. :)

Isn't Anders a little advanced for standing up. I don't remember my babies standing until 10 months. Maybe they were walking around furniture at 10 months. You are right; he doesn't look chunky or that heavy. Fun to watch him grow.

Um...crystal is 18 months and only 22 pounds. Hahaha! She's a girl though, so I guess that's why, cause she loves food.
Anders is quite the little athlete! I bet he'll be great at high school sports! My brothers would get in trouble every night cause they would stay up and play instead of going to sleep...every night they got punished for being too loud. Sounds like your boys are still behaving though. That's awesome.
