And here we are already at 8 months! The fastest 8 months of my life. 8 months ago, I barely knew how to change a diaper and now I have an 8 month old baby boy who is practically crawling, has his first tooth and feels like he’s always been here!
This month has brought a lot of fun changes in Emmett. He has started to feed himself solid foods with his hands and hasn’t eaten anything that he doesn’t seem to like! We just give him tiny pieces of whatever we are eating and he happily takes it. He has started to flip over to a crawling position when he is seated but still really only crawls backwards so far. Most of all he loves to stand up! He tries to pull himself up on everything! He’s taken a couple tumbles lately because he’s always on the move and if I turn my back for one second, he’s bumped his head somewhere it seems. Emmett is starting to clap his hands which he is probably learning from our Kindermusk or Babygarten classes we take (and he loves!) Once in awhile it sounds like he says “uh-oh” which we think counts as his first word, haha. Oh! And he really just started paying attention to the dogs! He loves petting them and goes into a fit of giggles when Sam licks him. It’s the cutest thing ever.
He’s on medication now and seems to be feeling better. We have an appointment with an ENT doctor in a couple weeks to see if we should move forward with getting tubes put in his ears. Let me know if you have any advice!
