Wyatt - 8 Months

This month was fast and full of development for my little Pudge.  He continues to be such a joy.

- I'm not even exaggerating when I say that he's the happiest, most go with the flow baby in the world

- No official weight but I'm guessing he's around 16 1/2 pounds or so.  I'll know next month at his nine month well check

- He is so busy, so wiggly, so curious, and so social

- Super strong

- Snuggles his lovey, Mo, like nobody’s business. Seeing him do this when it’s time for bed is heart melting

- Starting to raise his hands up in the air to be picked up and reaches for people

- Responding to his name

- Loves, loves, loves food.  He's yet to try and food he doesn't like

- His hair is getting really long and lighter in color

- Eye color remains a mystery.  It's like they are a weird (and beautiful) combination of brown, green, dark blue and grey?  Is that considered hazel?  I don't know

- Started babbling "dadada" on Mother's Day

- Still army crawls all over the place.  His favorite floor time activity is to chase a ball across the floor

- Speaking of floor time activities, he also goes straight for the dog food and water bowls

- Loves to be sung to

- Adores (adores!!!) his big bubba and sissy

- I see A LOT of Zoey in his features

- Still toothless, which is mind blowing to me.  I think I started saying two months ago that those bottom teeth would pop through "any second now."  Shows what I know

- Switching to the "added rice" infant formula has been a huge game changer with this spitting up

- Took his first trip across the pass to Central Washington and was a little rockstar 

- Went swimming for the first time and absolutely loved it

- Is seriously the best baby in the world.  Ryan and I comment on how lucky we are to have him at least once a day

Take Luck,

Wyatt - 7 Months

Thanks to lots of illness for Little Wy and me - this past month has been slow and fast all at the same time.  But he's seven months old and ready to take on the world!

- No official weight but thanks to lots of frequent doctors visits I know he's around 15 and a half pounds

- Is still quite the little piggy.  Has yet to find a food he doesn't like.  We've switched to "added rice" formula to try and help reduce his spit up.  So far it's helping!

- He's army crawling all over the place and often gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth.  I feel like "real crawling" isn't far away at all

- He loves pulling every single toy out of his little toy bin

- He is trying really hard to pull himself up into my lap

- Is sitting up unassisted and loves being able to look around

- Waving?  Maybe?  Sometimes it seems like he is and other times it seems like he's found his hands and is just moving his arm so it looks like he's waving

- Loves the bath so much that I swear he starts flailing his body anytime he hears running water

- Loves his bouncy seat/exersaucer thing

- If finding his voice and experimenting with volume control

- Is so, so wiggly

- Still no teeth but man, I swear the bottom two are going to break through any minute 

- Is seriously still just so happy and so chill.  At a recent doctor's appointment - he fell asleep while we were waiting and then slept through the whole exam.  I warn friends that meet him that he will 100% make them want another baby because he is just perfect.

Take Luck,

Wyatt - 6 Months

Can someone please tell me where the second half of February and the first half of March went?!!  Life is moving faster and faster and I don't know why I keep expecting it to slow down - but I do.  The saying is true - the days may feel slow but the months and years are fast.

Wyatt is six months old.  HALF A YEAR!

- He weighs 14 lbs 5 oz (6th percentile), is 26.5 inches long (51st percentile), and his head circumference is 16.9 inches (46th percentile)

- This kid is a pig.  He squeals when he sees his bottle being made and brought to him and opens his mouth really, really wide for every spoonful of baby food that is offered to him.

- Speaking of food, we are giving him baby food but also adding in some baby lead weaning too.  He's tried cantaloupe, honey dew melon, chicken, BBQ pork, strawberries, and avocado

- Is just THE happiest and chillest little buddy in the world.

- Laughs A LOT.  Especially if I ask him if he's stinky or say "za poop!"

- Gets really happy when it's time for naps or bedtime - probably because he gets to see his lovey, Mo

- Is still spiting up like crazy.  We practically have to have burp cloths within arms reach at all times

- Still really loves baths and being naked.  He's taken his flailing to a whole new level and has actually flopped himself right out of his bath seat

- Can put his binky back in his mouth when/if it falls out

- Loves playing in the baby activity bouncer

- Working on sitting up unassisted

- He's starting to spin in little circles when on his tummy and is trying so hard to crawl

- Getting very, very wiggly

- Grabs onto all the things - hair, clothing, curtains, blankets, and faces

- Still no teeth but I feel like I won't be saying that for much longer

Wyatt - 5 Months

Man, that month went by fast.  That says a lot considering last week we were quite literally snowed in for many days.

Wyatt is five months old! 

- No official stats to share as he doesn't go back for a well check until six months.  We've managed to keep this kid (overall) healthy so far so he isn't nearly as familiar with his pediatrician as the other two were at this age.  My guess is he's somewhere between 13 and 14 pounds

- Not only did we start supplementing formula, but I stopped nursing and started exclusively pumping.  The combination has really done him good.  My milk is naturally really lean but I also don't think he was transferring milk very well when nursing

- Started to show some interest in food so we just started introducing baby food.  So far, he's tried sweet potatoes, butternut squash, apples, and prunes.  This kid can hardly see over the highchair tray but he loves it

- He has the best laugh and I can get him going pretty good just by talking to him

- Is still so, so, so ticklish

- Loves to be sung to

- Drools like crazy, loves to blow raspberries, and spits up a lot so we go through three or four outfit changes a day

- Loves Mommy (a lot), Daddy, Camden, and Zoey.  He lights up for us all - especially his siblings

- Saw his first snow... all 18 inches of it

- A rolling over champ - back to belly and belly to back

- Reaching for and grabbing all the things - including hair and our dog, Raph

- Absolutely loves baths (and being naked).  He kicks and flails with excitement

- Is just the happiest, most content baby ever

Take Luck,

Wyatt - 4 Months

Four months old and it's going by lightning fast... blah, blah, blah.  I know.  Why is it that each kid seems to grow up faster than the one before?

Wy Guy is four months old!

At four months:

- He weighs 12 lbs 15 oz (8th percentile), is 24 1/4 inches long (18th percentile), and his head circumference is 16 1/4 inches (44th percentile)  

- We started supplementing formula and it has made a huge difference for his growth and his little bod.  I mean - look at those cheeks!  The first thing his pediatrician said at his four month well check was "where is his neck?!"

- Is so engaging.  This kid just smiles and laughs and babbles non-stop

- Nicknames include Wy Wy, Baby Bubba, Bubs, Pudge and Pudgie Wudgie

- Thought he was starting to favor me looks wise? But now I just see Ryan (and Zoey)

- Drools more than the previous two kids combined, I swear

- Has started blowing raspberries which just adds to the mess he normally makes with his drool 

- Is the most ticklish baby I have ever seen or met

- Loves Mommy, Daddy, Big Bubba Cam and Big Sissy Zo Zo

- Is really starting to favor Zoey looks-wise

- Celebrated his first Christmas

- Getting super close to rolling over from back to belly but get stuck on his side because his head is so big.  And it's not really "that" big but compared to the rest of his body proportions -- it is.

- Is a really good sleeper (knocking on all the wood) and will sleep anywhere from 10-12 hours overnight.  Naps have much improved too and they are anywhere from 1-3 hours

- Eyes are still a dark gray/blue.  Ryan thinks they'll go blue but I think they'll go brown
- Started daycare at Ms. Debbie's and has done so well with the transition.  He gets so much love and attention there from the teachers and the kids - it is no wonder he doesn't miss me

- Could be a serious competitor if there was a competition for the most wonderful baby in the universe.  I'm biased (I KNOW!) but he is just the best, best, best

Take Luck,
