Tobías is 8 months old!. Actually, he is 8 months and a week. I started writing this post a week ago, and just now have the time to sit down and finish. Hopefully!
Tobías is doing great, as always. He started to wave goodbye and hello!, He claps, He loves to walk (you have to hold both of his hands, of course), and he is finally saying MAMA!!!.. I don't know if he understands what it means, but just the sound of that word coming from his mouth, melts my heart. He is not crawling yet and I am thinking it might be a while, but he just started to put his hands on front of him while sitting and moves back and forth until he crashes face forward on the floor, pillows, bed, etc..;)
He is also gaining more stability standing up while holding on something.
Loving the outdoors! / Disfrutando del parque!
I have read the O babies have sometimes issues with food and eating well. I had assumed that since Tobias doesn't have any oral aversion and has been eating and gaining weight we were one of the lucky O families with no feeding issues. Well, think again woman!!. Tobias is not eating as much as I would like. While he has started to get a kick from the baby foods (mashed fruits, yogurt, mixed fruits and cereals) he is taking a lot less breastmilk and/or formula that he used to.
I'm trying to not freak out, but I took him last week for a weight check at the pediatrician's office and he hadn't gained any weight in the last 5 weeks. He did gain half an inch in height and about an inch in head circumference (smart little boy!). So the nurse said, since he is growing, there is no reason to be concerned. However she is going to talk to Tobias's doctor to see what he thinks and maybe we can start supplementing his food somehow.
He is being doing better in the last week. So we’ll see.
First day in the pool!
I can’t believe it has been a whole year since we found out about the O. I believe everything happens for a reason, and I think this life-changing experience has helped us become better, stronger human beings who cherish every moment of our life with our three wonderful children.
