It keeps getting funner and funner with each passing month!! This month has been so much fun. To watch his little mind explore and his eyes light up has been such a joy. He is such a good good baby and although he does have his tantrums, I am so blessed to be his momma! It only gets sweeter from here...
Eating: Nursing 4-5 times during the day and once in the middle of the night. (Yes, he still wakes up around 3-4 to eat!) Maybe this month will be the magic month where we knock out that nighttime feeding? To be honest, I haven't even tried to but one time and now that he's NINE months old, I know he will be just fine without eating in the middle of the night. ha! He eats solids 2 times a day. We are still doing a mix of purees and BLW. He has eaten some new foods this month, and I think the only thing we are waiting on feeding him (besides milk) is strawberries. This month he's tried eggs, oatmeal, peaches, potatoes, pancakes, green beans, turkey and cheese. He has also mastered the straw cup! We had been trying to do a sippy cup but he was not learning how to suck it out and so I just thought I would try a straw and he caught on instantly! Plus, my speech language pathology freinds tell me a straw cup is better... so I offer him a staw cup throughout the day with water and he will take a few swigs every now and then.
Dislikes: Diaper changes ALWAYS, putting on clothes after his bath, getting things taken away from him, sitting in the shopping cart for too long.
What we're looking forward to: We are heading to the mountains for a long weekend over Memorial Day and we cannot WAIT! We are also heading to the beach..what a fun month ahead for us!
