Owen: Week 33, 34, 35, & 36
There are days that I can't wait until you can walk because you are so heavy, and other days that I don't want you to be too big to so that you won't fit in my arms any more. I want to be able to hold you forever, but also want to see you grow. I was looking at some pictures the other day of baby Cody and I just can't believe that it has already passed. I am so happy that I kept a blog, took lots of pictures and video. I never ever want to forget. I love you both so much.
You are such a little monkey! Mostly always in a good mood but you have learned to yell really loud if I turn away from you or you want something. Your teeth are coming in nicely. Two little chicklets!!
But not too much has changed it seems. Well maybe it's just more subtle. You are definitely using your hands better. You are able to grasp some smaller things and pick them up from your tray, like cheerios, and puffs. You are kicking your legs a lot and even standing a bit more, but still appear to be a bit of a lazy one!
Eating is going very well. We are trying all kinds of new things. You eat about 15 different things now, but like your brother don't seem to be taking to meat very well.
As always when Daddy came home he couldn't believe how much bigger you have gotten. I don't tend to notice it as much. You no longer use the infant car seat. You use the big one just like Cody. Which means you also get to sit in the shopping cart. Not really the easiest yet since you are still floppy at times. But there isn't much I can do except use a belt to hold you up.
The weather has flip flopped a lot ever changing from warm to cold and back again. Yesterday (March 31) was beautiful and we spent a large part of the day outside. Today on the other had it's a blizzard! Cody is very disappointed wondering why he can't go outside to see the animals and ride his bike.
So already like I said I am posting your 8th month picture. HAPPY 8 MONTH BIRTHDAY on March 27th.
Daddy is home from work now and should be for at least a month and likely more. He actually is going to take care of you boys when mommy goes back to work. That way I can have a little more time to find a day home. And daddy can be the stay at home parent!!
You are a very curious little one! You love laundry baskets and "helping" me with the laundry, much the way that Cody did. You like to pull everything out and putting everything in your mouth. Your major fascination is your feet! You have learned to eat your toes, and pull off your socks. You also like to munch on your socks too.
