Zavier has started crawling backwards at the beginning of this month. He is fully crawling now at the end. He also started some separation anxiety.
4/9/14 - Zavier's first hair cut! We trimmed his bangs while he was in the highchair. It wasn't easy and he looked so much older directly afterward.
His sleeping is still pretty terrible. I'm not really sure what to do
about it at this point. He goes to sleep just fine, he just likes to
wake up a lot and play me like a dang fiddle. I know he doesn't need to
eat at night but I feed him bc it comforts him. He's been sick on and
off and when he's not sick he seems to be teething. He naps for about 30
mins three times a day. Sometimes he surprises me and sleeps for an
hour or longer. This is rare.
Despite the sleep issues, he's such a fun little guy! It's easy to make
him smile and laugh and he has a tickle spot on his ribs. He crawls
around so confidently now and when he wants something, he goes and gets
it. He wants to pull up on everything which requires lots of
supervision. It's all exciting, just moving really fast! He likes to
drink water from Scarlett's cups, which means he does a good job sucking
from a straw.
Scarlett has started to interact with him a lot more with kisses and
playing. She will help me with him at times by repeating things I say
like "keep your eyes open, Zavier" and she gives him kisses. She doesn't
enjoy his mobility as much tho bc now he tries to take toys she's
playing with. I do think it's helping her learn to share though and also
teaches her she can't just take a toy from someone.
It's hard to believe he just turned 8 months. It's hard not to think
about Scarlett when she was 8 months. I do my best not to compare them
but it's nice to reminisce about her milestones. Pretty soon he will be
walking and then talking and time will continue to fly so I will
continue to live in and enjoy the moment!
