I'm sorry...did I just say 8 months? Well, officially 8 months and 5 days. These have been the fastest 8 months I've ever lived, I'm sure of it. Time flies when you have an older child that has to be shuttled to and from preschool, play dates and the like. Scheduling has kind of gone out the window and really, I'm okay with that. Wyatt sleeps 12 - 12 1/2 hours at night and takes about 3 - 4 hours (cumulatively) in naps every day. For that, I know I am blessed. He is such a happy baby, which makes everything that much easier. Smile, smile, smile...that's Wyatt in a nutshell. Lately, he's been a little bit of a mama's boy and while I'd like to say we're trying to remedy that, I have such a hard time with the looks he throws my way when I walk away from him! He's got me under his spell! I am totally guilty of feeding this problem and I always run to his rescue. :)
Wyatt LOVES his big brother and all the things they play together. He is lucky to have a big brother who always wants to entertain him! Henry is not too keen about the slobber all over his toys, but he deals with it.
What's new at 8 months? Wyatt has been clapping for several weeks now, and he's also been pulling himself up to a crawling position for about a month. He still just rocks back and forth and scoots backward until he hits something, but I think it's only a matter of time before this one's on the move. There is no doubt in my mind that he will be crawling long before Henry was (11 months!). Oh yeah! And now he has two bottom teeth! The started coming in around 7 months, but they are very visible now.
He is a chatterer, for sure. Talking, squealing, drooling, LOUD. I'm afraid he might be slightly hyper and it's obvious he's an extrovert. Clearly, he takes after Jim. (snicker)
Assuming the position...
Some overexposed teeth!
Moving on to video...
Here is Wyatt, so proud of his new trick:
And here are my children during Wyatt's bathtime, a sometimes family event (don't ask me why). Henry likes to "help" out, which usually means pouring water over Wyatt's head. Wyatt just splashes away, just happy for all the attention. :)
