When I’m not looking…
A little, big girl tucks her babies in for the night. When I walked past this, I was unsure whether to put them away or let them sleep… 😉
And a certain baby turns 8 months!!!
Somewhere between a little road trip, a nasty cold for you that lasted 2 full weeks, plus a week as a single mom while daddy was on travel, this month’s milestone zoomed right past me. I do go days without knowing what the date is. Am I crazy? Don’t answer that…
Anyway, a couple of updates to report, little man:
You aren’t technically crawling on all 4’s but you can move! You do get up on all 4’s and rock back & forth and find a way to go from one side of the room to another with a lot of scootin’ and rollin’. You seem to go backwards more than forewards and you often get yourself trapped in a corner and get a little frustrated that you haven’t figured a way out! I’ve caught you reaching for the jumper legs or the couch seemingly trying to pull yourself up, which thankfully, you haven’t accomplished. You may not crawl much and go straight to standing/walking?!?
You continue to drool & put everything in your mouth but you are still toofless
You are momma’s boy, no doubt! I don’t recall the girls being so enamored by me. And I’m not trying to flatter myself. You seriously follow me with your eyes, your face lights up when I simply look at you and you cling to me and love being in my arms and resting your head on my chest or shoulder when you’re tired. I really don’t remember the girls being so snuggly and cuddly. Yes, you’ll go with other people and yes, you are experiencing a little of that ‘stranger anxiety’ phase but it’s more than that. It’s that special momma-son bond thang and I’m loving it so much!!!
You are expanding your menu enjoying avocados from our tree & frozen greek yogurt popsicles
You babble “da-duh” when you area happily playing and a clear “mamma, mamma, -amma” when you are really tired &/or in need of some comfort or milk. Funny how that works 😉
