Update of 8 Month Proportions April 24, 2011

Filed under: Baby G — arminta @ 10:08 pm

Graham will be 8 months old on Thursday. Eight. I am in awe of how fast his infancy is FLYING by. And, I’m here. All day everyday. I’m in the moment with him. I can’t even imagine how it must fly for mommies who go to work.

So, what’s going on in the world of G?

– We totally rock the independent sitting. He can sit for a LONG time without falling. Usually he reaches too far for something and ends up on his belly before actually falling.

– Toys are FUN. So fun. The only thing more fun than toys? Mommy’s glasses. And hair.

– Laughing, big ol’ belly laughs. Much cuter than the ones on Youtube. He thinks I am hilarious. And Lil C? He’s funnier than Katt Williams and Will Farrell put together.

– Getting dressed sucks, but he helps. I thought babies didn’t help until closer to a year, but Graham has figured out that it goes faster if he pushes his arm through the sleeve, and he does.

– Crawling? Not so much. By which I mean, not at all. The boy is entirely uninterested. He will roll or scooch to get around, but crawl? no thank you.

– Diapering/EC’ing? We’re still all cloth, when we’re in diapers. We were diaper free for a few days, but I didn’t like my sons package coming in contact with the carpet where the incontinent dog sleeps and my shoes that have outside walk etc… So, now we’re in a coverless prefold or training pants a lot. Except for like since Thursday, because I’m just not committed enough to carry a potty in my trunk and try to EC on the go, yet.

– To quote Big C “I love him so much it makes me almost cry.” (A seven year old boy said that… about a baby! He’s going to be a kick-ass papa one day.)

  1. lol- he sounds a lot like little gremlin- It’s almost like she gets offended when she needs to crawl in order to reach something- scooting on her bum though, that’s ok. Also ok- pointing at object of want and screaming at mom to make it get close enough to be played with.

    I was also kind of surprised by the helping with cloths thing too- even putting arms up to have a shirt removed!! it’s awesome!

    Sounds like you’ve got some sweet young lads!!

    Jack HATES the idea of crawling like it is from the devil! He’ll hang out on his belly for a few then he screams like okay mother get me up now… this is not as fun as you think.

    Big C is so sweet. Kids come up with the most honest and sweet things. it gets me all squishy. 🙂
