8 months old
Wild man is now 8 months old. (well 81/2 months old) and full of lots of life!
He, at times, is the happiest baby Ive ever met.. smiling and laughing at just about anything. Other times he is the neediest baby Ive ever met. Fussing if you walk .5 inches away from him. He doesnt always need you playing with him .. he just wants you next to him. Mr. Social maybe?
He's taking 3 consistent naps. Well .. not consistent. As much as I try.. he is nothing like his brother who I could have told you day in and day out what he was going to do. Wylder normally takes 3 naps. But I dont feel like they are nearly as consistent or great as Rivers were.
We've been putting him to bed pretty early. Normally because he is melting down and ready to go to sleep .. but also because Im praying it will help him sleep later. He is getting better at sleeping later. Although, it still isnt as late as I would like it to be .. its better so I'll take it. And he is learning to just play in his crib when he wakes up so that is wonderful too. (He used to wake up at like 5:30am. Now he wakes up anywhere from 6:00-6:30 and we try to keep him in his bed until about 7:00 .. hopefully this gets even better the older he gets)
He is trying SO hard to crawl. Freeland wants him to so bad. I on the other hand, feel blessed that its taken him so long! The day he starts crawling my world is going to be turned upside down! I have a feeling he'll be into everything too.
He is still SUPER ticklish. He loves to dance. He is happy as long as there is food in front of him! He'll eat almost anything. He's starting to eat more diced up food instead of pureed. He loves watching River. Starting to love when Mickey is on TV. Growing out of clothes all the time. He is still flexible when we are on the go. He has definitely found his voice. and our hearts are full loving him everyday!
