Here's to you, sweet Henry! You're eight months old, sitting on your own, pulling to stand up (with help still, but it won't be long now) and taking assisted steps around your nursery. You skipped crawling. Crawling is for ordinary babies, and you're anything but ordinary!

Here's to Henry, who is the most mild-natured baby there is. Other kids take your toys at the gym daycare and you simply find a new one. You smile at everyone. You love to watch and learn from other kids. Mommy smiles with pride as she's constantly told how well behaved and handsome you are.

Here's to Henry, who means business when he's hungry! Who was born a month early and weighed five pounds 12 ounces, and has eaten his way to the 99 percentile, weighing 21 pounds and 30 inches long at only eight months old. Eat your way to the top, son!
Here's to Henry, who refuses to nap, but sleeps for 12 hours at night. Who flashes me the biggest smile when I get him up for the day, and who giggles nonstop through diaper changes. Who thinks bath time is the BEST. Who thinks stroller rides are the BEST. Who pretty much is happy doing whatever mommy wants to do!

It's an honor and a delight to be your mommy, sweet boy. I'm so thankful you were born to me.
