*He is sitting up better, but is still a little wobbly.
*He is eating 3 "meals" on top of his 5 bottles now. He is getting better at eating the chunkier food and has a lovely addiction to puffs. I am trying to make sure he eats really well since he is so little but I have to remember his belly can only hold so much. However, feeding him is quite a chore because he has gotten much more distractible this month and wants to pay more attention to anything but eating.
*He finally moved into 6-9 month clothes. A lot of his 3-6 month clothes still fit, but I wanted to make sure he wore the 6-9 month stuff for more than a month since its all summer clothes so we went ahead and brought them out now. He just has a really large wardrobe to choose from for now. Darn.
*He started leaking through his overnight pocket diaper, so we've made the switch to fitted diapers and covers for night and naps. I am even experimenting with wool covers, even though I never understood their greatness before now. I hated to buy more diapers but Mason started sleeping on his side this month and urine is just not contained well in a pocket diaper on a side sleeper. This is how diaper addictions are started, I am sure of it. I am so glad I didn't do fitteds with Aubrey for long because they are too cute. Boys diapers aren't quite as cute.
*He has become a crazy, mad rolling machine. Gone are the days of my sweet, immobile baby staying put. Once he sets his sights on something, he turns himself around in the general direction of where he wants to be and starts rolling to get there. His favorite place to explore is the DVD storage at the bottom of the entertainment center (I won the argument again when Todd said he knew we needed doors there like I wanted, HAH!).
*The battle with separation anxiety has started. If I leave his sight he starts screaming. I think its even worse for him than with Aubrey because he sees me all day so when I leave, its bad.
*We started using a few baby signs with him. He has started to do the "bye-bye" motion to himself which means he is getting better grasp of hand-eye coordination so we thought it would be a good time to start some signs. So far we are just using mommy, daddy, sister, doggy, milk, and eat. We taught Aubrey a few of the signs so she can help us reinforce them, as well. I know it could be a while before he signs back, but its fun to do right now and it will happen when it happens.
*And a new experience for me to watch this time. Aubrey never seemed too interested in her girl parts during diaper changes so it was a little bit of a shock to me that Mason is all too interested in what's down there. He is not gentle and I know it has to hurt when he grabs it, but he doesn't seem too bothered it. All I can say is Lord, help me. They start that fascination early, huh?!
Sitting up like a big boy
I turned my back for 30 seconds and the next thing I know he's underneath the chair.
