Baby Beau is 9 months old in a week so this blog post is way overdue! I did take these photos back when he turned months though, so that's something!
At 8 months old Beau is now sitting up by himself. He very occasionally falls backwards and most often is pulled over by his brother's! He no longer uses the Love To Dream swaddles and instead has a sleep bag. Still loves his dummy and has white noise to go to sleep. We're trialling the Lulla doll that a friend lent us, but I'm not sure it's making much of a difference. He has had white noise (heart beat) in his room since he came home from hospital so I don't think the Lulla doll is much different from that (apart from having a breathing noise, which sounds like Darth Vadar!). He still wakes at night and usually has 2 naps a day (shorter naps if we are out)
Beau is eating well and sometimes has 3 meals a day. Typically he'll eat weetbix for breakfast, avocado & banana for lunch and whatever we eat for dinner (sometimes I blend this a bit). He loves oranges and sourdough bread.
He has stopped breastfeeding as he was screaming whenever I tried and just preferred the bottle. He still loves our dog, Maddie and he babbles a lot. He is very ticklish. He reaches and plays with toys and puts everything in his mouth. He likes to "stand up".
