Felix is 8 Months Old!

Felix is 8 months old today! In the last month he has really blossomed. Whatever funk he was in for the first 6 months of his life has definitely passed.

Things he does now:

• Looks at faces, makes eye contact, smiles, and has stranger anxiety.

• Rolls front to back, back to front.

• Reaches up and out with his hands to grabs objects.

• Sits for a few moments at a time, with improvement every day.

• Stays on hands and knees for a few moments with help.

• Squeals, babbles, and razzes all the time.

• Enjoys bath time (and swimming at the Y).

• Likes playing games and singing, like “Pat-A-Cake” and “Itsy Bitsy Spider.”

• Actively and happily participates in physical therapy at appointments and at home.

• Drinks breastmilk on demand, and eats puréed baby food twice a day.

• Sleeps in his crib (no longer his bassinet) for longer stretches of time at night. But still doesn’t nap well.

• Still prefers the outdoors.

I’m sure there are a few things I’m missing. But these are all big changes that came all at once. He also got his 6 month shots today since he was on a delayed schedule due to his previous CMV infection. At his appointment he weighed 18 lbs 1 oz, and was 27 inches tall.

Now if I could just get him to smile for a picture, it would be really helpful for these monthly updates. Haha!
