I want to start off by saying Happy 8 Months Aubrey & Anthony!! My fearless twosome celebrated turning 8 months on Monday, September 28th and are now working on turning 9 months. I can't believe how big my babies are getting and how much they have changed in the past few months.
My little girl has really been blossoming. Last time I posted, I listed all of the words she started to say. Well she also added the word UP to her vocabulary and is starting to grasp the meaning of up. If I ask her if she wants to come up, she will put her hands up to me and sometimes will mouth the word. She also made her greatest achievement last week - she called me MAMA. I kept walking in and out of the room because I wasn't sure if she did it intentionally but she did :)
Aubrey has also started a new habit of speaking very loudly. She yells and poor Anthony is not used to it so it upsets him and he starts to cry because he thinks she is upset. She has been turning into my tough girl and he has been turning into Mr. Sensitive. Because of this, don't think Anthony doesn't give her crap back. Their new thing is that when they are on the floor playing they have to be near each other. So Aubrey will start to pull his ear and they crack up at that and then she starts to touch his mouth which makes him bite down and the tears start to fall. I can say from experience that his little teeth are sharp and really hurt. I am happy they are not in daycare because we would be kicked out for him biting.
Anthony is turning into quite the momma's boy lately. He has started to get separation anxiety. He isn't so bad with it when Marc is home because he stops after a minute but if Marc isn't there to distract him he will keep crying and whining until I come back - no matter who is there. It may sound cute that your little boy wants you to be with him 24/7 but a girl's gotta pee some time ;)
My mush is also starting to get on all fours and rock back and forth but hasn't figured out how to move his hands and legs into a crawl. So now he will get up on all fours and rock and when I put a toy, or my phone, or the remote out of reach to entice him to go get it he quickly plops down and does his army crawl. It is like watching him swim on he floor...lol
