Sooooooooo… today Jase is officially 8 months, and I am just getting my 7-month post up. #momoftheyear
^^that’s our cute little turkey on his first Thanksgiving!^^
Jase is really just the sweetest, happiest little love bunny you could ever ask for!
Big news this month…drumroll please…he started S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!!!! Queue the sobbing mom tears. Right around Halloween, Jase began pulling up on everything. Standing in the crib, standing at the dishwasher, standing at the coffee table, you name it. Then, we had our first official “hey-guys-look-at-me-I’m-just-going-to-stand-up-right-here-unassisted-incident” the first week of 7 months.
Someone get this baby to SLOW his roll. Seriously. I do not need a walking 9-month-old. ;))
…Has five teeth.
…Got his first ear infection. Boo. (But was so happy we would have never even known it if it hadn’t been for his regular checkup.) Side note, after being on antibiotics twice a day for 10 days, I think it’s safe to say our little guy absolutely despises taking meds. He basically thinks we are torturing him any time I whip out the plastic syringe. Luckily, Jereme devised a sneaky little trick to where he distracts Jase with a toy and then sneaks the syringe into his mouth. Honestly, I’m not sure we would have made it the 10 days if not.
..Tops the chart at 85% for both height and weight.
…makes the most adorable ‘old man’ smiles and faces sometimes. They are THE BEST.
..Is making LOTS of super adorable baby sounds, with “BA-BA” as his first (not really but sort of) official word for anything he wants. It’s “baba” this “baba” that, “ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba” non-stop around our house. I swear there have been a few “ma-mas” in the mix too.
..Loves getting tickled and makes the silliest hissing laugh when we play with him.
…Also LOVES flopping around on a bed or couch. He basically trust falls onto any pillowed surface and thinks it’s hilarious.
…and bath time and Oliver are still topping his list of favorites at 7 months.
We love you so very very much baby Jase.
