If last month was the month of the jumperoo… this month has been all about sitting up!
He loves it, just sitting on the floor surrounded by toys (and of course his favourites are remote controls and mama’s phone!).
He still does his royal wave and when he’s excited he shakes his arms about! As well as sitting down (!) he loves peepo and mirrors!
So on the one hand he’s quite ‘easy’ at the moment but on the other he’s been teething the last few weeks so we’ve had some grouchy days, and a couple of times he’s coughed so hard that he’s been sick 😦
Damn those teeth! The top 2 are finally poking through.
He’s also coming out of ‘leap 6’ so more reasons to get grouchy as he learns the new skills of ‘getting’ things!
It’s mad reading his big brother’s update at 8 months – I was back in work, and W was busy trying to crawl and move! It’s nice to know I still have a few months before I go back to work… it’s going so quickly and I’m trying to make the most of it!
We’ve finished a weekly ‘totsplay’ class we were doing so I need to make an effort to take him to baby groups and drop-in classes like maybe rhyme time in the library and some musical ones. Actually I’ve taken him to messy play a few times with his older brother and he’s enjoyed that.
Weaning is still going really well, he enjoys his food and is staring to eat more and more but hasn’t dropped any milk feeds yet. He absolutely loves munching on broccoli and cauliflower, and the only thing he doesn’t seem to like yet is pear!
His daily routine is nearly identical to W’s at this age – mad!
He’s a better sleeper than his big brother though – most night he will sleep through for 11-12 hours although we’ve had a couple of disrupted nights due to teething.
I haven’t had him weighed since his 6 month check but I do try to weigh him at home to keep on eye on him and he still seems to be around the 9th centile. He’s mostly in 6-9 month clothes but can still squeeze in to a few 3-6 month clothes. He’s in nappy size 3.
