My little Grabber

How is it that babies grow up so fast?! Troy will be 8 months on the 10th. He is already standing up, he crawls everywhere, he is on the move. He also loves food (if you cant tell) He is a whopping 20lbs! He eats everything. So finding foods to keep him entertained at the same time can be a feat.
