So I realized I've been writing the same post over and over for a while now. Thanks for bearing with me as I slog through May. How about something different? How about a quick B update?
My little man is doing quite well.
Still no crawling, but plenty of scooting, he can get where he wishes right quick.
B loves the water, I think I need to get him swimming even if the chlorine makes his skin flare up. He loves splashing around in the bath every night before bed, and this afternoon he dumped the dog's water bowl all over the kitchen floor, squealed, and then splashed around until I picked him up. Gotta love a water baby.
Food is still not very interesting to him. He'll work on bananas if they are mashed and on his tray, but everything else makes him gag. Every few days I give him a bit of banana to play with, and every now and again I give him something new to try, but we're not pushing anything on him. No harm in sticking with milk a while longer, right?
When B plays he smacks his right foot on the ground over and over. It's the cutest thing. He's just like his daddy, can't hold still.
We've weaned him off the pacifier, which has made our lives easier. He is sleeping longer stretches at night, though we are still struggling a bit with sleep issues. He naps better now too. It was easy for us to transition him to a comfort item (we used a Taggies blanket) since we only gave the pacifier at night and for naps.
B is a sweet, happy baby. He loves everyone who crosses his path. He loves to cuddle and snuggle, but likes his floor time too. If he hasn't had enough free play time in a day it's much harder to get him down for the night.
8 months in two days, break my heart why dontcha?
