Mars is 8 months, 3 weeks, and 3 days old.
He started cruising along the coffee table this week and his little tic-tac of a tooth is getting bigger and bigger everyday! With his new mobility, he is getting more ouchies throughout the day. The other day, he had FOUR little falls that made him cry! Nothing he doesn't get over quickly, though. That's one of the things I love so much about Mars. He wakes up smiling every morning and doesn't really get upset about things. He only cries when he bumps his head sometimes, or when he wakes up in the middle of the night. He's just an easy-going, happy baby and we are so lucky.
This past week, I've upped Mars' solids game. I made a huge batch of oatmeal and pureed a batch with carrots, another with pears, and another with apples. For every meal, he's been eating two ice cubes of oatmeal along with some kind of finger food. He loves it! He loves to eat and gets super excited when I put him in his high chair. However, more food definitely means more poop. But on the positive end, his solid poops are a lot easier to clean!
Happy weekend, everyone!
