Our little boy is growing up! I cannot believe that he is already 8 months old. He is now referred to as an "older baby" (sigh). However, in my eyes, he will always be my little baby!
Noah is ALL OVER the place now crawling. If I take my eyes off of him for a few secs, he is gone just like that, exploring another room in the house! Good thing we baby proofed the house so he can free explorer. Lately, his favorite things to "get into" are: the bottom shelf of our pantry, the fire place, the dishwasher and the tin of dog toys. He also loves chasing after the dogs and kitty and likes to pull on cords. I am trying to teach him to leave the cords alone since they could "ZAP" him if he bites into one...sometimes he stops and looks at me when I say "ZAP" and sometimes he keeps on flapping the cord around. Oh well, I guess I will keep on trying!;)
He is now starting to pull up on objects. He can grow from sitting to standing on his knees or on his feet if he finds something to hold onto (ex: the dishwasher). It is so fun to watch him these days!
Our Foodie Baby continues to love to eat! He is now eating three solid meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and nursing about 5-6 times a day. One of his new favorite foods is yogurt! He loves when I mix in mashed bananas or pureed apples and cinnamon. I like to eat the leftovers too! Mealtimes continue to be a highlight of our days! I was given a wonderful opportunity to share my experience of baby food making on a fellow blogger's site www.strictlynutritious.com. The article is called "Foodie Baby in the Making". Check it out if you like!
Noah also started to become more vocal this month. He babbles "mamama" all day long and our house is full of laughter and squeals these days. He sure does have the sweetest giggle too! He also likes to make the "sss" and "ffff" sounds. In public, he is still a bit reserved, cautious and shy, but at home it is a totally different story!
Likes: crawling, bananas, sweet potatoes, the dogs and kitty, music, his stacking blocks, crawling in the bath tub, being in nature, swinging, cords
Dislikes: diaper changes, outfit changes, cutting teeth (it appears either a canine or molar on the top right side is cutting now...ugh!)
Til next month!
