This is Luke and Sandra's baby. His name is Brandon. He's eight months old. He has beautiful blue eyes and a big smile.

Right now Brandon is up from his morning nap. He takes two naps during the day--one in the morning and one in the afternoon. When he wakes up from his nap, his mother or father checks his diaper to see if it needs to be changed. Then they give him something to drink.

Brandon loves to play with his stuffed animals. The one that he's holding is a white bear. It's his favorite toy. He laughs and giggles when he squeezes the bear. It makes a squeaking sound.
