Finally started "crawling". This mostly consists of dragging himself with his arms, scooting with one leg, and lots of rolling around but it gets him where he wants to go.
Got his first tooth! Yep that's right, the first one. He had one unusually fussy night and out it popped the day after. He likes to gnaw fingers (his and ours) more than ever now, but otherwise he has tolerated it pretty well.
He is starting to try to pull up, but isn't quite there yet.
One of his favorite things to do is "hide" things in the couch or under cushions. He'll take a toy or steal our phones and shove them in between the couch cushions only to pull them out so he can do it again.
I have been trying to get him to eat more finger foods. He does best with big chunks that he can gnaw on instead of little pieces. He tends to shove too many little pieces in his mouth at once and gag himself. One of my favorite things I've found to give him are the Happy Munchies rice cakes. They soften up as he chews on them so he can handle them well even with just 1 tooth. They have different flavors and he loves them all. The thing I like most is they have simple ingredients (just brown rice and fruit/veggies) and no added sugar, or artificial flavors.
|Bear wanted to get in on the photo shoot|
A few outtakes from his pictures...he was determined to get his brush the whole time.
He cried a lot too...
We also had a fun visit from his cousins this month. They definitely keep each other entertained!
He got to try his first Steel City Pops popsicle--which he loved.
And swing in a big boy swing
And of course, there's still lots of love for Bear.
I really cannot believe he'll be a year old in less than 2 months!
