Christmas Shopping with Mamma!
What a difference 2 months makes!
On the left, Thomas in January and on the right, at Easter.
More photos coming soon!
In the meantime, I will catch you all up on his statistics:
Age: 8 months, 1 week
Weight: 20 pounds
Height: 28.75 inches
Head: 18.75 inches -> big brains!
Oral fixation: Thomas has four teeth and it seems that some more will be coming soon, as he has been suffering much of late.
Petite Cuisine: He has begun his foray into eating solids. We began with terrine de foie gras, which continues to be his favorite, and his parents' too. He has also enjoyed thus far: pear, avocado, peach, goat cheese, oatmeal, kasha, beans, green beans, lentils, pork, chicken, duck, apple, carrot, rice, sweet potato, mango, peas, squash, broccoli, necatarine and many spices. This list may seem peculiar to some, but you must understand that I make all his food.
Motor Skills: Thomas has mastered the pincer grasp and changing objects from one hand to the other without much thought.
He also has been scooting backwards for the past month, but on Friday he surprised mamma and papa` by crawling forward; his stomach never touches the ground. He has become quicker and quicker, so I have to keep a watchful eye on him as we haven't completed babyproofing. He also is pulling himself to a standing position by using whatever is around him for support. Will he be walking by 9 months like I did?!
