My little guy turned 8 months old on the 15th. He is doing great, and B and I still can't believe how lucky we are. He is crawling everywhere and pulling himself to stand on all the furniture and his new toy he got for Christmas. He has even let go of the furniture and the toy to try to get something else. He immediately falls (no real balance yet), but it's impressive to see him try. He does cry sometimes when he falls, but gets over it pretty quickly.
He is a great eater and is starting to prefer finger foods to baby foods. No teeth yet, but that doesn't stop him from eating crackers, pasta, cooked carrots, green beans, peas, chicken, etc.
He is chatting up a storm. Lots of "da"s and even some "momomomom"s. He is really fun when he babbles and looks at you like he's really trying to carry on a conversation. So far nothing has a name, just blabber talk.
I'm coming to get you, Dad!!
I'm so sassy standing up at the chair!
He was 21lbs 7 oz at his last drs apt (for his ear infection), but that was with clothes on. My guess is he's closer to the high 20s. Huge for 8 months!!! He is currently on his second round of antibiotics for this ear infection, though he had another fever at daycare today, so B brought him home and I'm going to stay home tomorrow and go back to the pediatrician. Poor buddy- he just doesn't look good right now. I do have to say, he doesn't get too crabby when he's sick, so I'm definitely counting my blessings in that regard. I definitely wish that daycare was less germy :) Alas.......
So, those are SYT's updates. I'll be home with my buddy all day tomorrow, and, while I'm sad he's not feeling well, I am excited to get an extra day with him.
