Kane: 7 & 8 Months Old

So... Kane is now 8.5 months.  Just now catching up.  Apparently 6 months in with three kids is when blogging finally took a back seat.  I so so treasure these updates though.  I go back and read about each of my boys are their different ages often.  So here I am trying to remember what exactly Kane was doing these past couple months.  Time is so fleeting.  They change so quickly.  I want to remember it all.  And often I do when I write things down, so let's see what I can scan my brain for tonight...

Kane is such a happy, smiley, giggly baby!  Strangers comment on this all the time!  I briefly thought we were heading into some stranger-danger for a week there, but nope, it passed just as quickly as it appeared.  While we were at the doctor's office for Finn's three year check up, Kane was completely smitten with our doctor; he even let the doctor parade him around the office and show him off!  He's easy going, will nap whenever he can, and is truly just happy to be along for the ride.

He's crazy mobile already!  He was fully crawling just after turning 7 months, and currently he is crawling up the entire set of stairs any chance he gets.  He tries to get away from us and thinks that is crazy funny.  He also pulls up on everything and anything, often my legs while I'm trying to cook.  He's used an Amazon Prime Box as a walker, and desperately wants to master that skill.  Will he be my earliest walker?  Currently Liam holds the record at 10.5 months.

He wasn't really into food until this most recent month, and now he goes crazy for it!  He freaks out if I'm eating & I don't share.  Favorites include: black beans, greek yogurt, hummus, cottage cheese, bananas, strawberries, watermelon, avocado, & bacon.  Baby led weaning is working so so well for us again & I love his big appetite!  He still breastfeeds as his main source of nutrition, but continues to really just nurse before naps during the day, and frequently throughout the night.  He has followed suit with his brothers and is currently a terrible sleeper.  We are waking up about 10 times a night, although I don't count because it messes with my head.  We co-sleep, so often he just nestles in and goes right back to sleep.

He's already fabulous at playing independently, but will often get into mischief.  His brothers' Legos or my potted plants are some of his favorite rogue playthings.  Everything goes in the mouth.  Everything!  Which is always a little interesting when we are outside.  He's a trooper for hikes, just loving the ride along on my back.  He's crazy about baths & showers, although he probably still doesn't get bathed enough.

This age is one of my favorites.  The endless smiles are just heart melting.  I love the way he looks at me when I walk in the room or Conor when he gets home from work.  He loves to nestle against my head.  And grab my face.  He is such a grabber!  I have the claw marks to prove it!  Everything about him is just so genuine.  What a little love!  I feel like we are in a good groove as a family right now, although again, life is still crazy busy & chaotic!

Now, let's see if I can be on time next month!
