Baby Teeth Brushing

This boy loves to brush his teeth.

We bought him a toothbrush when his first tooth popped through, just for him to chew on and get used to the idea of using one. Right from the start he loved to chomp on the bristles and somehow he knew exactly what to do with it and moves it back and forth across his teeth!

It's unbelieveably cute!

He loves brushing his teeth almost as much as he likes looking at himself in the mirror!!

Eight Months

oh gosh, look at all those teeth!!!
This boy is growing up way too fast!
And that last photo might be my favourite one of him ever! Those teeth! That nose crinkle! Love this boy so much.

This age is so fun. His interactions with people and the world as a whole are just growng in leaps and bounds.
He is now reaching out for people when he wants to be held, responding to his name (been doing that for quite a while now)
He looks at people when you ask where they are. Mummy, Daddy, Grandpa, Nana, Lari and Huxley(the dog)
Still practicing getting his knees up underneath him, and rocking from side to side when on his stomach.
He sits well by himself now and happily plays.
He mimics faces, laughs and coughs, shaking his head side to side, and poking his tongue out.
He had his first bottle of ebm. He hasn't really taken to it, and only had a couple since then.
Had his first trip to Phillip Island followed closely by a trip to Bendigo
Teeth number three and four have popped through. They came through a little funny though. The second tooth to the right came through before the front right one did!
He started chewing on his toes when we change his nappy, and pulls on either the bottom of his footed PJ's or his socks until they come off.
His little sense of humour is starting to develop. He is starting to recognise when he's funny and he gets the cutest little cheeky glint in his eyes when we play games with him.

Each day with our boy gets more and more fun. While I certainly don't wish away these days with him (well, maybe the crappy, sleepless nights!) I can't help but be excited for the future with our Hugo. I can wait to see what he learns to do next, how he changes and grows, to watch as more of his personality comes out.

This parenthood thing comes with its own set of challenges and responsibilities, but the joy and fulfillment that it brings is incomparable.
