Oscar's 8 Month Update

Saturday, 8 February 2014

Hey Oscar!

Another month has gone by and we are getting closer and closer to your 1st birthday, I can't believe it's only one more month and then you will have been out in the world for as long as you were in my belly. It seems like you have been a part of our family for ever and we can't remember what it was like without you. You bring smiles to our faces every day and a little grin or laugh from you can brighten any day.

You are now able to sit up on your own unaided for short amounts of time, you like to sit on the sofa and play with your toys or sit on our bed. You still need a little support or else you might topple over but you are getting stronger every day.
You have started shaking your head from side to side and if someone shakes their head at you, you sometimes copy us and do it back! You also love to pull your socks off at every opportunity you get, I have a pile of odd socks due to them getting placed around the house. You are loving your bath time more and more and love kicking your legs like a little frog. I can see your personality developing all the time and you are getting better and better at expressing yourself and when you want something, you're not shy to let us know!

You are still on your Stage 2 weaning foods but we introduced you to mandarins a few days ago and it was love at first taste - you cried when Daddy was eating them without offering you any. You are now having them daily as a snack and we chop them up into smaller segments for you. You try and squash them a bit with your tongue so I think you might be getting accustomed to not swallowing everything whole... Raspberries and strawberries are next on the agenda!

You have had a slight change in your sleeping routine, you now tend to wake at about 8am and go down at 8pm but you just started getting tired earlier, so we changed the times and it's working much better for us all.
You don't seem to have any interest in your dummy at all these days and so they are very rarely used, you still prefer your thumb.

 I think you are teething at the moment as you are sporting some cute rosy cheeks accompanied by a lot of drooling and chewing on everything you can get your little hands on. You're also fond of pulling some hilarious faces (see last picture, haha) that look like it might be your gums irritating you but you've been a good sport so far and not complained much at all.

You are such a well behaved little man, we can take you out anywhere and you always sit quietly and patiently and never complain or kick up a fuss, you have the most lovely personality.
It's your Grandad's birthday tomorrow, so we will be visiting Grandma & Grandad tomorrow for a little celebration.

We love you so much.
