I feel like his first year is FLYING! I am just trying to savor every little thing. He is my last baby.
The day he turned 8 months old he started his first little bit of real babbling. ba- ba- ba- ba- ba
He also sat up by himself. His daddy laid him on the floor after we came in from church, walked out of the room, and when he walked back by him he was sitting up.
He is just a sweet baby, and I just can't get enough of him.
Diaper changes are still wresting matches, but we are getting used to it.
We decided to go ahead and move the mattress down in his crib (he didn't know what to think). Since he is sitting up on his own, I know pulling up is just around the corner. He has no fear, so we are going to stay a step ahead of him.
He is teething and has been pretty miserable. Just waking up during the night, and not napping as well. It's been obvious it's him gums so we just keep giving him teething tablets or tylenol. He also gets held and rocked more than normal. I am just enjoying him wanting to be held because he is normally too busy for that.
He spent his first night away from home this past month, and did great. I love that my boys get to spend lots of time with their grandparents, but we really miss them when they aren't home. I enjoy the quiet for a little bit, but then it's too quiet.
He is still in a size 3 diaper and wearing a size 6-12 months. No Dr. visit until next month, so I don't know how much he weighs.
