Now that our babies are approaching 9 months I thought it would be nice to have a little check in.
Baby's age: 8 month 1 Week
Height: 67 cm
What can your baby do? Sits unassisted (even though we still have some spills now and then), tells us stories in baby babble, has the pincer grab down, imitates us sometimes when we make noises or stick out our tongue, turns from back to tummy and back, no crawling yet but very soon, pulls up on furniture but not quite strong enough to get up.
What is your baby eating? Mostly breastmilk still - he rejects my left boob completely so I pump that side and use it for my freezer stash or to top up with a bottle now and then. We have 2 meals a day (lunch and dinner) where he eats about 0-2 ounces of solids each. Chunks of whatever we eat works better than purees which he mostly rejects. His fave so far is greek chicken from the slow cooker. Some days he still won't eat any solids.
How is baby sleeping? Still nurses 2 times per night. He has never slept through the night... sigh. One day, right? He has mostly 2 naps per day now from previously 3. He is still a catnapper - 30-45 minutes each nap that's it.
Anything else you would like to add? Now that Ryan can sit he seems a lot more content and can entertain himself for 20-30 minutes with minimal help from our side. It's a godsend! He is really starting to develop a sense of humor and we absolutely love playing with him. Hes a real goofball!
Are you planning the next one already? No way!! Now that things are finally starting to get easier I am enjoying getting out of the newborn stage and life going back to normal a bit more. Maybe in a year or two
