August is eating all the things (he's got three teeth now!), dragging all the things, pulling down all the things, and vocalizing about all the things he approves or disapproves of. In other words, he's really coming into his own. It's been fun -- and exhausting! -- to witness.
He recently went through a growth spurt so we've had to buy him all new clothes. That wasn't so fun for my bank account, but kids fashion is kinda my thing, so hey...
- Eating. Real food, not just that baby puree stuff anymore. And he yells when you don't give him the food on your plate. Or when you don't give it to him fast enough.
- Bouncing up and down while holding on to things. His crib railing, the edge of the sofa, my legs.
- Biting. (Let's just leave it at that.)
- Standing, attempting to balance and take a step, before falling and crawling to get there faster.
- Clapping while giggling.
- Attempting to taste people's feet. (Is that weird? Don't answer that!)
- Taking pots, pans, and containers out of the kitchen cabinets.
August doesn't like:
- Getting dressed. There's something about having to sit still for longer than five seconds that rubs this baby the wrong way.
- When Aiden takes his soccer balls, footballs, and other toys away from August.
- When he eats all the food and there's nothing left to feed him. (Brace yourself for tears and get ready to distract him with something fun!)
I can't believe we're so close to him being a one-year-old and that we'll be planning his first birthday celebration soon. Time truly flies when you're having fun!
