8 & 9 months

Well, as you have noticed, I have been pretty quiet for the past month or so. Things have been extremely busy around here. This blog was meant to document our family life and leave behind something my children can look back on years down the road. Even though I have not been posting, I still plan on sharing lots of our adventures that took place in the past months. These moments now feel like they happened long ago but they are still moments I would like to capture and share with the kiddos. Hopefully this means I will be posting a bit more in the next little bit. To start off, I wanted to share Baby I's progress. I am behind as you know, so I have combined months 8 & 9.

Baby I, you have been growing and growing! I feel like this time around the baby stage went out the window very quickly. Baby I, you are an exploring machine. You are interested in everything. You like to open and close doors and pull off anything that may be on a shelf. You are crawling and can stand on your own for a good minute. You have four teeth, love to eat and I mean eat! I think you may have a bottomless pit for a stomach. You definitely get that from your father. You are eating purées but love finger foods such as blueberries, potatoes, strawberries and toast.

You love to play peek-a-boo and ball with your sister and brother. You love bath time and scream when mommy and daddy take you out. You hate having your diaper and clothes changed. You don't like to sleep - I think you are too afraid you will miss out on something.

Lastly, you made this mommy so very happy when you started saying "mum, mum, mum." You must have heard me when I told you a million times it would make me so happy if you said "mum" before "dada" because daddy already won that right with your brother and sister.

Keep growing and smiling baby boy!
