My baby boy: you’re 8 months old

The months are passing us by so quickly.  I can barely believe that you are 8 months old already, you’re such a little character now, so cheeky and with such a great sense of humour.  Your movement has upped in a big way, you crawl SO quickly, I love it when I can hear you coming towards the kitchen on the wood flooring, I can hear your little hands quickly slapping on the floor.  You’ve now mastered crawling up the bottom step as well, you love standing there hands gripped onto the stair gate, shaking it back and forth.  It would be great if you could learn how to climb back down though, because you wither just throw yourself backwards or wait for me to lift you back to the ground!  You’ve also climbed up the full set of stairs a couple of times (with me or daddy behind you) which is amazing!

The day before you turned 8 months we moved you into your own room, we felt you needed to move as when we go up to bed we tended to wake you up.  You didn’t seem phased at all, only waking once in the night and then coming into our bed at 6.30am for cuddles before daddy left for work.

You’re coming on brilliantly with your weaning, you’ve started eating much more, despite having no teeth!  You watch us chewing and copy, sometimes the food goes down, sometimes it dribbles back out!  You LOVE cherry tomatoes, I pop them open and you sit there and suck the juice out and then eat the flesh.  You would keep eating them for hours if you could I am sure.  You also seem to really like carrots, they definitely get eaten!

You’ve started saying DaDa now, you crawl around saying ‘dadadadada’, it’s so cute and daddy is so chuffed that you said his name first.  The thing I find cutest is you seem to have learnt to whisper, you sit there whispering ‘dadadada’ and then look at me with the cutest smile.  If I repeat your whispers back at you, you start saying it again and then get louder!

You seem to really enjoy our baby yoga classes, so much so I have booked another term of them for you, as well as baby sensory.  We have made friends with a few of the other mummy’s which is really nice, and every week we go for a drink at the cafe just around the corner from the baby yoga place after class.

This month you are:

  • Cruising around furniture
  • Able to walk across the room with your walker
  • Can crawl up the stairs
  • Say DaDa
  • Breastfed
  • Baby-led weaning
  • Go to sleep around 8pm
  • Sleeping in your own room
  • Waking once or twice a night

Your favourite things:

  • Giving kisses
  • Your walker
  • Playing peekaboo
  • Pulling youself up on all of the furniture
  • Playing with all your toys
  • Tomatoes
  • In the Night Garden
  • Laughing

I can’t believe you’re already 8 months old, time is going too quickly and I feel like we have very little time left together before I go back to work.  I know I don’t go back until you turn 1 but the time we have had together has gone so fast already, I’m sure the next 4 months will go in the blink of an eye.

    A lovely record of his development. I recently started doing it when my daughter turned 18 months because I’d already forgotten so much from this stage. You’ll really value having this written record in years to come. I love this stage when movement and interaction really increase. Hope you enjoy your new term of Baby Sensory. My daughter loved it the most from 8 months! #KCACOLS

    I love these kinds of post, its a lovely record to have. My Piglet is nearly 8 months old and is doing very similar things…… except not crawling! He loves shouting or whispering Dada. Typical daddy gets the first name! Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

    Awww this is such a lovely update, and how amazing that he has learnt to whisper already! He sounds like a lovely cheekie little chappie. Enjoy the last 4 months at home with him before you go back to work 🙂 Lovely post, thanks for sharing it on #MarvMondays. Emily
