I feel like any day now, Oliver will soon be crawling! He can lift himself really good & can almost get his knees underneath his body. He can sit pretty good by himself, we just have to be right beside him just in case he does topple over ;) Sometimes I can compare Oliver to other babies as far as development goes and I know I shouldn't. All babies are different & each one has their own timing for everything! I am incredibly in love with this little guy. He is so funny & is getting more & more vocal! Oliver has always had a deeper voice, but lately it has become more high pitched & bird-like sounding :) ! He cracks me up the way he always has his mouth open like he is surprised at everything 24/7! Ollie also does this thing we like to refer as "the silent laugh". He will get so excited and happy about something & open his mouth to form this huge smile & nothing will come out. Not a peep. It is hilarious :)
Oliver is loving food! I feel as though he is transitioning more towards wanting "real" food than milk. Anytime Matt & I are eating, he will just stop whatever he is doing & stare while making these little noises as if to say, "please let me eat some!". His favorite foods so far have been pumpkin & apple and blueberry/pear & purple carrot! Sometimes I mix them with a little organic rice cereal & he seems to like that as well. At first I tried to only give him veggies, but he wasn't that interested until I gave him a mix of fruits & veggies. Of course, I would LOVE to make all his food, but sometimes it is nice to have a couple packs of pre-made food for him ready to go. We try & buy organic & fewest ingredients possible! My rule is, if I can't pronounce it or know what it is, we don't buy it. I have been really enjoying Earth's Best Organics & Plum Organics because they usually have the least amount of ingredients!
Olivers current weight is around 16lbs. 10oz. & height is 28" long! He has a head full of a beautiful copper locks & always has a smile ;) Right now he has two bottom teeth & the top two look like they will be here soon! Happy 8 months my little sweet fox!
