I can't believe how big my baby is getting!! He is now almost 8 months, and he is such a happy, curious, playful guy. He is rolling (finally!) from tummy to back and I have a suspicion that he could roll from back to tummy as well, but since he hates tummy time why would he do that? He's making lots of new sounds, like "lalala", the "b" sound, the "g" sound, the "n" sound, and lots of incoherent babbling. I just love hearing him find his little voice.
He has also been doing well in the food/eating department! He isn't gobbling down the solids like I thought he would, but he is actually starting to swallow the bites I give him instead of gagging on them, so that's progress! He will gnaw on a banana or a piece of avocado as well. So far we have tried rice cereal, banana, applesauce, avocado, carrots, sweet potato, and a few other items, I'm sure. I'm still careful to monitor what he is eating, since he is sensitive to dairy and soy. We consulted with a GI doctor, and she told us we could start introducing some of those things back in around 10mo. Since I have changed my diet to eliminate all dairy and soy, though, his diapers have cleared up and all looks normal (I'm sure you want details, right?)!
So far he also tolerates posing for his monthly photos. I'll take advantage of that as long as possible!
Welcome! My name is Marie, and I have been married for 5 years now. We have one beautiful son, Isaac, waiting for us in Heaven and another son, Hayden, here with us! I hope to share with you more about our journey- where we have been and where we are going.
