Jan 18, 2008

Well, Byron is having a wonderful time, now that he's figured out crawling. He doesn't flop onto his stomach much, and though he looks slightly awkward, he's quite quick. Turn your back for a second and...
He was weighed on the 14th and was 8.81 kilos, which is right on average for 8 months. Of course, he wasn't 8 months until the 17th, and for his "birthday" he got two new sharp teeth, coming up from the bottom gum.

He's eating well (he had (minced) tuna casserole today) and is getting into trouble every 5 minutes for playing with power cords. I noticed he can twist his tongue sideways, but when I mentioned this to Nathan he said, "So what? Everyone can." Well, not me, so it must be a genetic thing he got from Nathan.
Other tricks he's been up to include dancing to music (especially shaking his head), waving and giving sloppy kisses. Tonight he is starting to sleep in the cot overnight, as he keeps wriggling to the top of the cradle and then getting cross when his head presses the top.
Hmmm, Daddy is comfy...

Byron and Nathan

Locked out of the kitchen!!

So many more toys, now that I can crawl!

Just in case anyone is thinking of having a baby out there... lol!

My goodness! He sounds like he's a lot of fun now. (Except maybe that BIG spew! ha ha) Can't wait to meet him. I arrive home late morning 20th March.

Yeah, I hardly knew where to start cleaning that one up. There was more under his clothes and on the floor, too. lol. Do you know, Nathan hasn't been vomited on ONCE! Now that's unfair...
