He’s Eight Months!

Matty, or Babeh-Babeh as he is called in our house, is 8 months old today (7 months corrected on the 7th). I can’t believe how fast time has gone. He has finally started eating solid food. Today he tried blueberries and he was a FAN! He started crying when I ran out of cut up pieces and I had to quickly cut more as dad kept him entertained. He is filing a formal complaint letter for sure on that one. He enjoys playing with buckets and measuring spoons, and more than anything loves to watch his sister run from one side of the house to the other. Oh and he lives to stand. Doesn’t matter if he is holding on to his parents, the ottoman or the couch, he just needs to be on those two feet dancing! He is sleeping SO MUCH BETTER. He is only up once or twice a night now and I can totally live with that! He has one tooth, (bottom, front, right) and its neighbour is ‘thisclose’ to popping out too. While I was taking these photos of him below, he moved from sitting to his hands and knees for the first time. This is a skill that I plan to limit the growth of. I would like Matty to stay immobile as long as possible. He has some inefficient ways of moving now (commando, and bum scoot), but he isn’t particularly fast with either and I would really like to keep it that way. I have my hands full enough with Everly. “Dada” is the favourite sound in our house, we also hear; mama, nana, hi, boo and baba. He has no idea what any of them actually mean, but soon enough! This is one skill that I plan to nurture. And last, but not least, my favourite of his new skills- kisses on demand:)We are so in love with our little guy.

Evidence of the blueberry love above, lol!

Matty and Everly both at 8 months old. Matty is 22 pounds, 14 ounces, 30 inches long. Everly was 18 pounds, 10 ounces and 27 inches long.He officially is bigger than she was at ONE year old! Yikes, lol. In these pictures they don’t look that much different though. Funny how that works. He’s just a big boy. How big?? Well I entered his recent stats into a fun baby app that I have and this is what it told me…

 On the left is his chronological age (going by the date of his birth) on the right is his corrected age (going by his due date). LOL. The stats confirm what we know to be true; he’s heavy to lug around all day!
