8 Months Old

I am still late but better than last month.
Dear Malachi
You have really been showing your personality this month. You are mostly laid back with your feet crossed but when you are mad you are mad and let us know. You have a loud voice and want people to listen when you speak. You have said "mama" 3 or 4 times without mimicking me. You say "hey" when you mimic someone. You love to make spitting noises and love when I tap my hand on your mouth and you yell. You often just throw your head back and laugh. You love to interact with people.
You are so desperate to be on the move. You are a rolling machine and have a pretty good army crawl. You do push ups trying to get into a regular crawl but have not mastered that position yet. You love to get into everything especially cords. If there is anything in front of you at the table you are grabbing it and get angry when we move it.

You are starting to become interested in bites of food but you do not really eat them just play. You will only consider food if you are the one in control and putting it up to your mouth. If someone's hands tries to put something up to your mouth you clamp your lips together and nothing is going in. You got 2 more teeth this month so we are up to 6 teeth which at this time Niah had none.
We are so enjoying every moment with you and love your little personality. We can not imagine our lives without you.

7 months old

I know my dear sweet boy is almost 8 months old but better late than never.


How did you get to be 7 months old so quickly. You are such a happy content baby. You constantly smile and laugh and the only time you cry is when you are hungry, tired, or you lose your toy. You have become very active and you roll all over the place from one side of the room to the next. You have started trying to crawl but have not figured it out. You desperately want to move like Niah and Kyah; when you watch them your little toes start moving in anticipation of what they will do.
You still do not like any kind of food. I have tried oatmeal, rice cereal, sweet potatoes, bananas, avocadoes, yogurt, green beans, peas, and white potatoes. Nothing is a go and you start hitting my spoon and taking it after you take one bite, it is quite comical. You start clenching your lips together as soon as you see food. You have four very sharp teeth. I have not see any other teeth start to come in. You have slowed down on spitting up, now you only spit up usually 1 time a day compared to spitting up every time you ate.
You love the water. You get so excited in it and just splash and splash. You hate to lose something you are playing with and get very mad and start to holler. You have really started to find your voice. You make very loud intentional noises because you are are happy, mad, bored, or sad. You are ready to get up and go, even though you are not quite there. You absolutely love your sister. You love to watch her, you love it when she gives you attention, and you love when she talks to you.
You are such an amazing little guy and we can't imagine life with out you!!
