Today my little guy is 8 months old!
This months stats
Weighs 8.295 kg (18lb 5oz)
This has been a big month of change in Arthur’s life. He is now crawling around all over the place and every day he gets faster! He is pulling himself up to standing and when he really wants something (i.e the remote for the TV or my phone) he will shuffle along gripping onto the sofa to get it! This has resulted in Arthur taking A LOT longer to go down to sleep as he is too interested in sitting and standing up in his cot.
Not only has this opened up numerous possibilities for Arthur, it has changed mine and Mark’s life dramatically too! Eyes in the back of our heads are not enough to make sure that this little guy stays out of trouble!
His new ability to get around so quick has resulted in a trip to the hospital which was very dramatic for me and Mark but Arthur has recovered just fine!
A tooth came through the day after I posted Arthur’s 7 months post, it was luckily uneventful and we seem to have hit a little break in teething (phew!)
I had three nights having to do solo bed time routine for Arthur as Mark was working on the school play (which was a big success!). It was hard work and I am glad to have him back to help out, Arthur is too he enjoys Marks bed time stories much more than mine!
Arthur has had a lot of time playing outside in the garden, he really enjoys having a good look round but particularly enjoys eating grass (and attempted to eat a snail, luckily i rescued it!
We have been swimming lots and Arthur is now lucky enough that he has his own paddling pool. When we take him to the pool he is getting so confident he loves being put up on the side to ‘jump’ in!
Arthur is still happy eating anything and everything. Mostly he like it when he can pick it up and eat it himself, loaded spoons are less interesting to him now.
We are getting lots and lots of noises from Arthur now, still no particular ‘sounds’ as such but he’s so expressive and he really does let us know how he’s feeling, we are lucky that he’s a happy baby most of the time although he’s pretty bossy!!
Lets hope for a hospital free month and lots more adventures with Arthur!
