Baby in a hurry!

My little fella is becoming such a big boy!  I can't believe he'll be 8 months old in slightly more than a week.  I remember how long it felt like to reach the 8th month mark when I was pregnant.  Nate's reached some amazing milestones over the last month and a half - he's gone from crawling (and crawls so quickly now!) to standing (holding on to something or someone) and climbing:)  So, since his 6th month mark, playtime has not just been restricted to lying down.  In fact, he hardly lies down to play anymore! Here are some pics of my curious lil fella:

For some insane reason, I'm getting a little worried about him losing a little weight:( I suppose all that activity and the fact that he is growing lengthwise, means that he may not look as chubby anymore! But I'm so glad that my mum does such an awesome job feeding him.

Speaking of feeding, I'm going to try to expand his cuisine to include more than just a mix of fruit or vegetable puree.  I got this awesome baby/ toddler cookbook and am going to try out some of the recipes!  Cauliflower cheese anyone?  So far, I've established that he enjoys the following:
1. Sweet Potato
2. Carrot
3. Pumpkin
4. Apple
5. Blush Pears
6. Rockmelon
7. Peaches
8. Bananas
9. Cauliflower
10. Broccoli
11. Salmon
12. Apricot
13. Plums

And not a huge fan of:
1. Spinach
2. Peas
3. Corn
4. Chicken!

But the trick usually is to mask the spinach or chicken with stuff that he likes so that he won't quite protest as much!

The husband and I were supposed to bring Nate down to the pool today for his maiden splash...but the poor baby is down with a cold:(  I do pray that he'll get better fast!  I'm hoping that he'll be a water baby!

This week was also pretty good coz my brother flew down from Shanghai and he got to meet a much bigger Nate!  It's always nice seeing him since we usually only see him once or twice a year!

I'm sure tonight's gonna be a loooong night with the darling ill, so time for me to go catch up on some sleep!

  1. I think it's about the 1 year mark when baby's lose their weight right? So it should be perfectly fine :)
    btw, great job with the parenting and blogging babe! Such a wonderful process... finding out the little one's likes/dislikes, and how they change over the months/years!
