What he's up to...
If you can believe it...our "baby" is now 8 months old. I haven't posted about Elijah specifically for awhile and I wanted to share a few of the new things that he is up to.
He rolled over 2 times in the past 2 days. Now this is something that he has had no interest in for 8 months and all of a sudden he does it twice!
Even more exciting is the fact that he is so very close to crawling! He can get up on all fours and rock back and forth. The he usually slides himself backwards until he is stuck in a corner and gets irritated! :)
He has found a way to scoot himself across the floor to get to where he wants to go. He gets up on his knees and then sits back down and repeats this over and over and somehow it propels him forward! He is very creative!
He is still our toothless boy, but I think that the bottom 2 teeth are close in coming. He had started biting down hard when he has things in his mouth so it is only a matter of time I think.
He is not a good napper and often sleeps for only 30 minutes at a time...unless that is if you are holding him - then he can sleep for hours! He also doesn't believe in the idea of sleeping through the night. He is up every 2-3 hours still! I am not sure how I manage some days but I have become used to our schedule!
He says mama and dada and a few other babbles. He cries every time mom leaves the room - and yes I feel guilty over it!! When he gets mad he does this thing where he throws his arms and legs straight out and makes one loud squeal. Boy does he mean business!
Overall he is a happy baby, who loves to play with his toy helicopter and sorter blocks. He laughs and smiles and sticks out his tounge and we are so blessed that he is a part of our family!
