Maybe if they made wood-flavored baby food, he would be happier. He gnawed a hole in both sides of his top crib rail, so that is awesome. He is just starting to walk, when he's not thinking too hard about it, he will walk for several steps before falling, so I think he just has stage fright.
He still has regular meltdowns, but in the last week or so he's been healthy (we think he has allergies like me) and a total joy to be around. He doesn't appreciate my non-smart phone, though.
I've been completely obsessed with taking photos of him. I'm not sure what my deal is, but I bring my camera on every walk, every time we step out in the yard, I have it for every bath, it's ridiculous. I've been trying to take photos that aren't your standard pose, so when he doesn't look at me or gets too close to the camera, I take a photo anyway.
Sometimes you get great photos. And you may wonder, what is he smiling at out of the frame? Or, is there a spider about to fall on my head?
So, we've been having fun. The kid loves swim lessons, climbing stairs, and chasing the cats. He also loves taking walks in the stroller and 'dancing' with us.
He is warming up to books, which gives me immense relief. He used to just hit them, throw them, try to eat them....I had visions of him never reading because I failed to get him into it when he was a baby, so YAY!
In a couple weeks he will be one. I hear that is a big birthday, so I'm about 7 days away from freaking out and doing everything last minute. Guess I will just relax until then!
