I have been such a blogging slacker! Davey has just been growing and changing tons. In 2 Days he will be 8 months old. Last week we noticed that he is starting to cut a bottom tooth. It was making him a little fussy, but I think he feels better now. He’s a drool king though – he may start growing moss on his chin soon.
He wants to crawl so badly that he can hardly stand it. He has crawled a few steps (steps? that’s not the right word I guess, but I am not sure what a crawl unit is). Even though he can’t totally crawl yet, he can still definitely get around. If you turn your back for a second all of a sudden he is up on his knees leaning into some box. We have to get everything off the floor!
We took him to the zoo a couple of weeks ago. He loved the flamingos and the fritos bag (empty) that we let him play with. I think he enjoyed some of the other animals as well, but the flamingos and fritos bag were a definite hit. We also took him to walk on a nature trail. It was just a half of a mile, but I will put the pictures up which will indicate how he wasn’t interested in staying in his stroller on that day.
Walk along the trail:
The other day, I put him in his highchair and gave him jello to play with. He loved squishing it around, trying to pick it up, moving it around. He tried to eat a little, but it was too slippery to get much to his mouth. He got very sticky, but he had a great time!
Here’s Davey exploring his first wildflower. As you might imagine, he tried to eat it!
