First tooth

Marco’s first tooth finally pushed its way through!

This picture was taken 2 weeks ago. As of now, he has three additional teeth coming out! You can see the white nubs ready to poke through his gums. 🙂

8 MONTHS!!

Measurements

Height: 28 3/4″ (85th Percentile)
Weight: 18 lbs 2 oz (25th Percentile)

No teeth (4 months of teething and drooling, but nothing to show for it!), and no crawling. He has absolutely no interest in crawling. He loves to pull himself up to standing, but if he’s on his tummy he’ll just roll around until he can get himself into a sitting position. He gabbles to himself and practices his screeching abilities; he’s becoming quite loud, LOL. He loves to play with finger paints, and chews socks. WEIRD.

Marco’s starting to wave at people. He smiles and laughs all the time, and gives his Mama and Papa hugs and kisses; he wraps his little arms around our necks and opens his mouth wide for drooly kisses.

He’s eating EVERYTHING! Thank goodness he’s not a picky eater. His palate has approved of all of the following (most of it homemade, using the Beaba – we don’t buy jar food):

Chicken mixed with peas, avocado, or tomatoes
Turkey
Sweet potatoes
Butternut squash
Bananas with strawberries or blueberries
Pears
Carrots
Unsweetened applesauce (organic from Whole Foods) that I mix with blueberries, strawberries, or bananas
YoBaby Peach or Blueberry yogurt
Whole grain oatmeal
Cooked macaroni
Peas
Happy Baby yogurtmelts
Cheerios
Organic veggie puffs
Rice rusks

Finally, here are the pictures you’ve been waiting for 😉

Can I check my email on this?

OMG ROUX!!

Hugs!
