I feel like I literally just posted Gabriel’s 8 month recap! So here goes again!
Eating: Still about the same. 4 bottles a day plus 3 meals. The only change really is that he now loves baby food! ? He’s so backwards! Started out eating real food at 6 months (BLW) and now at 9 mos eats baby purees and real food. I thought starting BLW (Baby Led Weaning) I could get away with not making large batches of pureed fruits and vegetables but he has other plans!
Sleeping: we hit a bit of a rough patch where he would wake 1-2 (sometimes more) times throughout the night and need assistance getting back to sleep. This lasted a couple weeks or so, but now (knock on wood) he’s back to sleeping through the night and (BONUS!) finds his pacifier in his crib in the morning and will just hang out a bit, occasionally falling back to sleep, before mommy or daddy has to get up.
Playing: Gabriel is pretty great just like his sister was at entertaining himself. He is crawling all over the place now and starting to get into things like the dogs water bowl ? He still thinks his sister is hilarious, especially when she falls (she’s not very graceful).
Some pics from the month!
