This month, he has learned to sit up on his own better- though he's only done it a couple of times.
He continues to get up on his knees all of the time, but he doesn't go anywhere on them yet. Instead he's an army crawling champ!
We started solids, but then he wasn't interested, so we stopped. I guess since a couple of weeks have gone by, we'll try again.
We introduced a sippy cup- he's not really digging it yet.
He loves to "walk" around. This means that he loves to grab our fingers, pull himself up and walk around while holding on to our fingers. This boy can't wait to start walking... I'm torn. I think he'll be walking before he's a year. We'll see, I guess.
He continues to be soothed by music. Boy, does he LOVE music. If he's crying in the car, a lot of times I can just turn on the radio and sing and he'll stop. He loves being cuddled and sung to.
He loves people! He gets really excited when he's around people. It's so cute! He doesn't have stranger anxiety.
We started teaching him sign language. He doesn't sign back yet, but he's starting to understand it, which is really cool.
He's such an affectionate baby and I love that about him. :)
When I pick him up from my in-laws. He usually first greets me with a smile and then he sticks out his tongue (while he's still smiling). It's so cute!
He's trying to figure out how to pull himself up on the furniture on his own, except that he tries to pull himself up from his tummy, rather than get on his knees first.
Giving him baths in the tub have become increasingly more difficult as he tries to pull himself up in the tub- it's slippery, so I have to hold him with one arm and wash him with the other- not easy. He likes to splash in the water and he will get into a crawling position when he's not trying to stand. It's pretty adorable.
He's still teething, but no teeth yet. Everything goes into his mouth and he slobbers/drools a lot!
We're still working on getting him to sleep more. Two nights ago, though he only woke up twice and we got a good 5 hour stretch. Hopefully, we'll start heading that direction soon.
We just adore this boy!!
|Having his first bit of oatmeal. Yum!|
|I just love him.|
|Doing is first and second favorite things- being outside and standing. :)|
|Love those cheeks!|
|Playing with blocks- he'll take the blocks that we are trying to build with, even though he's surrounded.|
|He eats everything!! Still no teeth, though.|
|He's watching the water come from the faucet.|
|Playing the piano.|
|He hardly fits in his infant seat anymore.|
|Just look at that potbelly (and those delicious chubby hands!)|
|This is how he greets me when I pick him up- then we smother each other in kisses.|
|He often gets stuck in this position when he's trying to get from a seated position to his tummy- his legs just keep getting in the way. (I love how he sticks out his tongue when he's concentrating.)|
|Looks like some sort of yoga pose.|
|On his knees.|
|He's moving himself along the floor.|
|This is what he'd prefer to do.|
