We’re celebrating Kamden’s 8 month birthday today, with so much to report! He’s changed so much in such a short period of time.
He’s now crawling, backwards. He hasn’t quite gotten the hang of going forward yet, but he’s so so close. He does a lot of “scooting”, and he gets around pretty good. Kam loves to stand up and try to walk, and he may just grow up to be a professional singer, his voice is amazing, at least to me it is! He’s made it through the short list of veggies, and so far it doesn’t look like he has any allergies. Kam hates zucchini and asparagus. I can’t wait to give him fruits, so we can really start mixing things up! I’ve only been feeding him Level 1 baby food, and stuff I make at home. I’m not sure when to move up to Level 2. I did give him a tiny taste of Stockholm’s famous Swedish Pancakes one weekend. Judging from the look on his face, it was love at first bite!
While every day is a blessing with Kamden, this age is so far, the most entertaining. It’s so much fun to watch him learn about new things, and try to do things on his own. It’s also very scary. You can’t leave him alone, with anything even remotely dangerous, even for one second. Lesson learned the other day, when we had our first real “accident”. My “Little Man” is a tough cookie though, he fell and bumped his head, but only cried for a few seconds. Unfortunately, I’ve been told with boys, it won’t be the last scary moment for me, or the last bruise for Kam.
I had a wonderful first “Official” Mother’s Day, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend it than with family. Out of all the toys we have for Kam, his favorite one seemed to be a stick we found in the backyard!
We also finally had Kam baptized! He did such a good job during the ceremony. When our Pastor started pouring the water he eventually poured over Kam’s head, I think “Little Man” thought it was bath time!
Kam still doesn’t have any teeth, wonder when those will start coming in? He’s been sleeping good, eating good, and playing really good. We are very blessed to have him in our lives.
