8 Month Update (Ivor Alan)

I feel like I just posted his 7 month update yesterday. This month in particular flew by!

And we have a new development: TEETHING. His bottom teeth are coming in. 3 at once. Yeah…last night he was up every 2 hours. Poor guy 🙁 And…poor me.

He’s getting closer to crawling. He scoots backwards and spins all around the floor and rolls to get where he wants to go, but hasn’t been able to go forward just yet.

Still. hates. solid. foods. Seriously….I don’t know what to do with this kid. Total opposite of his sister.

Still adores Gwen and loves playing with her. She loves playing with him too for the most part. But sometimes she gets annoyed when he touches her. (Typical “he’s touching me!!!” sibling stuff).

I may have mentioned this before, but he really likes sleeping with a blanket over his face. Like, completely covering it. Like this:

He did that himself. It’s a very thin blanket and I can see him breathing (but I still remove it from his face after awhile..just because)

He loves to touch (hit/grab) faces. We’re currently teaching him to be “gentle”.

Speaking of, we started sign language with him when he turned 6 months old (like we did with Gwen). Mostly just “milk”, “more”, and “all done” for now.  He doesn’t sign it back yet, but he definitely knows what the “milk” sign means!

That’s all for now. Happy 8 months!
