Sawyer Update 7 & 8 Months

Boy time sure flies when your having fun or have an infant about. I can't believe Christmas has come and gone and that our "little" wildcat is already 9 months old. Here's what you've missed the past couple months.

We now have 4 teeth. The bottom two made their debut at 4 months but the top 2 front teeth greeted us at 7 months. He started eating table food but in small bits. We introduced the Gerber puffs to him and he can now feed himself. He will try pretty much everything we give him and so far the only thing I have found that he will not eat are beans, baby food version or from our plate. He also thinks that if we are eating he should be eating too. He likes to drink from our glasses as well but he only gets water or breast milk still. We started putting him in his high chair and eating all our meals around the kitchen table. Although this does not happen too often during the week since Brett is usually working out of town. His favorite right now is the puffs and he loves his oatmeal mixed with pretty much any type baby food fruit. I don't make much homemade baby food anymore since he is now eating/trying the table food. He's a pretty good chewer. The sippy cups have been introduced but he won't hold it himself, which he doesn't hold his bottle either. He can grasp it but it hasn't clicked that he has to turn it up and head back, lol.

Wildcat is wearing 12 month clothing for the most part, especially in sleepers. He does have several 9-12 month pieces that he can wear however. We already have a bin full of clothes he has outgrown and right at 9 months his too small drawer is again almost packed.

Crawling just really got started the week of Christmas but he figured out how to push himself up to a sitting position during the 7th month and began getting up on his knees rotating and sitting back down on his behind. He didn't roll, he would just perform that little maneuver to get to where he wanted to go. He crawls everywhere now and even tries to pull up here and there. 

Lil Vinny's Art and The Color Crew are a couple of his favorite shows on the baby channel and he loves the TV. We try to limit how much he watches because we want him to be able to entertain himself and not be glued to technology when he gets older. We stick to the baby channel so that makes me feel better since all their programs are educational. 

Peek-a-boo continues to be another favorite games of his and the babbling seems to multiply daily. He makes a particular noise when he is hungry and wants a bottle or wants to be fed more at the table.

Blocks! Blocks or anything you can stack is his favorite toy. He also likes clapping so he will clap pretty much anything together to make noise. It's also hilarious that he cannot stand for a stack of blocks to be left standing. If you stack it, he will come. He hauls butt across the floor to knock over whatever it is you have stacked. He thinks he has done something when he knocks them over. Sawyer also likes to throw.....any and everything. He can throw his little plastic ball pretty well and pretty hard, watch out. His favorite toy he received from Santa would be the screwdriver from his felt tool set. He has crawled all over the house with that screwdriver in tow.

It's so exciting to see how much he changes and grows from month to month. My little man will be grown before we know it.
