Little D, you light up my life.
The little teether now has two teeth, his two front bottom chompers.
They both arrived within a day or two of each other. We've got mountains of drool around these parts. Food is one of D's favourite things in the world. It's quite hilarious to watch the little piggy figure out how to get the food from his tray to hand and into his mouth. He used to dislike any food with a bit of slime, but now he'll happily gobble anything up. He's working so hard at crawling, and he's getting very close. He is also quite the fan of pulling himself up on furniture. He's not quite standing, but somewhere in between a planking and standing position. He even lets out a grunting noise as these exercises take place.
A couple days ago he put up a bit of a fight for his afternoon nap. This meant a few extra cuddles from Mummy. Once he was fast asleep I was overcome with joy and my eyes welled up with tears. I came downstairs and let them out to Paul. I couldn't help myself, and as I was crying I said "I love him so much. He makes me so happy", and I do, and he does. That feeling of ecstasy must have been preparing me for three wake ups that night. ;) Lucky for both of us there's no one I'd rather steal all my sleep.
Chia pudding is one of my all time favs thus far!
I'm a pretty big fan of greek yogurt and banana bread too!
Foods I've tried:
Mainly I like whatever Daddy & Mummy are eating!
Nuts-peanut butter/almond flour
Meats/Animal products-kangaroo/chicken/salmon/basa/beef/lamb/greek yogurt/eggs
Grains-oats/brown rice/wholemeal pasta/quinoa/chia seeds
I will call you Teddy and you will be my best friend.
D & I had a Mummy/baby coffee and op shop date the other day.
While I drank my latte I finally let him shove some leaves in his mouth!
Someone had a lot of fun eating their lunch and chasing the seagulls.
We've had the longest summer ever, and we just keep taking advantage while we can.
Tomorrow he'll be eight months old. Each day that passes he moves a little faster, makes a few new sounds, and looks less like a baby. I swear I'll have heart failure when he loses his leg rolls. The bouncy chair is now put away (for baby number two). He's been in his own room for two months now. His patience for the carseat and pram are still quite low. On the plus side I can now get him to laugh just as hard as Daddy can. I'm doing as my Mom has instructed, and allowing him to play in the dirt. The baby proofing continues as he begins to pull himself up on furniture and go for anything within eyes reach. This little nugget is taking over! Well, truthfully he has been for quite some time. However, it's only just now becoming abundantly more clear. Everyone tells you that you're never ready to be parents and that nothing can truly prepare you. Until you are actually the proud parents of your own little cherub these statements will mean little. I've never been so exhausted/sore/happy/grumpy in all my life. Motherhood has taught me a lot about myself. Predominantly that I can't function with out 1-3 coffees per day. Our journey has only just begun, and I'm thrilled to share this ride with my two wacky boys.
