 My baby turns 8 months this month, and I'm asking myself where did the time go? He has been on the move since he turned 6 months but now we have to really make space for him since he is a lot more mobile. He is so independent, he loves being on the floor, he can clap his hands, he can said no by shaking his head, he said no a lot more during feeding time of course. He is responsive to the word NO. you got to start discipline at very early age. The teeth have not come yet but it's getting real close I'm guesting by the end of March to mid April something will be there.
He is a happy baby who sleeps through the night. He doesn't wake up for feeding during the night. He is very talkative, super active too. He is able to stand by pulling himself up from sitting down.  he will make an attempt to put almost anything he can in his mouth.
He had his last appointment with the Hematology and everything went well.His platelets are very high and will continue to go higher. The doctors are so impressed with his improvement. I'm blessed to God that our child is growing healthy and happy.
As far food, he is doing well with table food and he is getting breast milk too. I prepare home made food
for him and grandma always makes his favorite too. At 8 months he it's wearing 12,9,6-12 in size and it also depends on the brands we even go up to 18 months sometimes.
I love being mom and so grateful for my hubby who's always there for me to lean on. We are so blessed to have him and praise the Lord everyday for the gift of life.
First time in the park

Fun day at the park

We are so blessed to have mild winter so far in the northeast and this week has been like any other week. Exceptional weather we could not have asked for more, since daylight saving darkness does not come early anymore which means more time to take stroll in the park. I took Ayden outside twice this week after work for about one hour; with his little outfit without a coat and he loves it, his eyes are everywhere looking at the trees, the commotions that's going around us. he was amazed by the big blue sky he saw above him. While at the park I met a new mom with her 8 month old baby boy, they both were born in July, and now i have a new friend to talk about baby related issues and anything else. I am hoping the weather will hold up for this weekend so that we can go spend some time in central park with our new friend.
