Winston turned 8mo old today. Time flies! He is still a small thing. I weighed him today and he is 17lbs. He likes to eat, but he is also a busy body so I guess he burns it off quickly! He is able to eat pick up foods, such as puffs, yogurt melts and disolvable crackers. He just tried "real" sweet potatoes this past weekend and liked them!
He is all over the place these days. Crawling as fast as we can run after him. He loves to chase the dogs and crawl under the table. He also climbed up the stairs last week....didn't know he could do it but as we watched he climbed right up. Getting down is not as pretty! The exersaucer and jumperoo does not keep him entertained for long these days! Mom and Dad get a workout after we get home from work! He pulls up on anything he can get his hands on. He has begun to let go for a few seconds and then plops to the floor.
Winston has slowly been weened off of breast milk for the past 2mo and after this past weekend is solely on formula. After a couple of rough nights last week....teething???......he is sleeping until 5:30 or later. Sometimes he goes back to sleep until 8am, sometimes we have an early morning.
This past weekend Winston was able to play with Aunt Lenny and B on Friday night. They stayed and we celebrated B's birthday. Lenny, Mom and B took a girls trip to the beach on Sat and Winston played with Granny. We all had a great time. Winston will be playing with Granny next weekend as well while Mom and Dad go to the UNC vs UVA football game.
Winston loves to wave. He will wave bye-bye as well as wave hello! Most of the time he waves backwards, flexing his fingers towards himself.
