I'm back!!!!!! and being 8 months old makes me gitty!!!!
Look at how these stems have grown!!
Who me? A beauty? Why what ever do you mean?
Watch this trick! I'll click my heels three times and......
Clap my hands, and.....
Wah Lah!!! Two Teeth!!!
Not impressed? Well watch me belly surf!
Or do push ups.
Yeah, I'm pretty big stuff these days.
Weight: 15lb and 2oz
Height: 251/2 in long
Feeding: Still holding at every 2-3 hrs...even at night.
Awake: You're a mix between an observer and an entertainer. You watch everything around you and have become quite wiggly. When we hold you now you quickly dive bomb towards the floor wanting so badly to take off crawling or walking. Your favorite position is standing and you stiffen up when we try to make you sit much of the time.
Dislikes: being tired, having gas, dropping a toy out of reach, teething.
Clothing Size: 6-9 months
New Milestones: Clapping!, Waving on demand as well as initiating it for hello and goodbye. Manipulating paci completely on your own taking it out and in and even stretching across the floor for it. Though you still dislike being on your belly or rolling you are trying to rock up to all fours and place weight on your knees....This is the calm before the storm, mobility changes everything. You had your first long car trip and placed your toes in the sand. You are a beach baby through and through, and had your best week every while there. If only we could move back!
We are hopeful that we can get your belly to baseline soon and start solids. After an up and down month with FPIES we are trying our hardest to see a new doctor in the EOE field and I am on a new elimination diet to see if we can't give your GI a rest. One good week had us thinking things were starting to change, but after being thrown right back into the same old mix I became convinced something had to change. With an elimination we hope to find the foods that are triggering reactions. Fingers crossed because I'm so sick of the guessing game, science experiment we are currently playing.
You are blossoming each day, and I feel like we are slowly watching your petals unfold. Figuring this world out with patience and trust, we enjoy every sweet moment we get.
