Theo at ten months

Theo at ten months

Theo is ten months old today. Hold me until the crying stops. My crying, not his.

Welp, we have a full-blown walker. This past couple of weeks, he’s been really moving. At first, it was just a few steps, but now he’s doing his baby waddle all over the house. It’s adorable and exhausting in equal measure. Especially because he wants to waddle right out the door.

Theo is an excellent eater. I’m digging it. He especially loves experimenting with different textures. We’re like totally into homemade purees and grass fed vegetable non-GMO air…JUST KIDDING…Gerber makes these mix-in baby foods and puffs and we’re into it. 😎

He is completely enamored by his big sister and brother. He wants to play with them and do exactly what they are doing at all times. He currently does not mind being a punching bag to Henry or a doll to Emma. I don’t think it will last long though. He’s going to start fighting back soon. Watch out E and H.

Theo at nine months

Our Mr. Theophilus turns nine months old today!

This has been an eventful month for our boy. He has two teeth (!) he is almost walking (!!) AND he is saying MAMA (!!!). He is quiet spectacular.

Theo loves food. Just LOVES IT. So much so, that if brother or sister drop pieces of their own food on the floor, our Theo scurries under the table and tries to eat it. We have to be vigilant with this one. He prefers baby food with a more savory blend than sweet. He’s also tried eggs but that ended with projectile vomiting so I’m going to hold off on introducing that one again any time soon.

He has been enjoying the warmer weather and loves to play with water. Bath time with big sis and bro is a favorite pastime around here too. He’s our earliest riser in the house so please keep the caffeine and eye masks coming.

Let’s see, Theo

LOVES: playing with Emma and Henry, taking walks, eating pureed meats and veggies, listening to music, waking up early, and slobbery kisses

HATES: diaper changes, getting into the carseat, missing out on any of the fun, loud noises

Theo at eight months

WHEW, finally getting caught up on Theo’s monthly updates. We’ve had a lot going on around these parts (post to follow with an update).

Theophilus is eight months old!

Theo Samanthaborn, House of Wetterholm, King of his crib, third of his kin, brother of Emma and Henry, eater of sweet potatoes and avocado, puller of hair turns eight months old today.

This has been an exciting month. He could enter the Indy 500 of baby crawling and he is a champion stander. He is starting to cruise along the furniture and I’m already emotionally preparing for his imminent walking. Wish us luck. He is fearless and zooms to any open door, cabinet, or fridge to mess stuff up. Two little milk teeth have popped through (much to my dismay when he gets bored of nursing and heads straight to chomping). He is a joyful and giggly baby. He’s happiest when playing with his sister and brother. He loves bath time and snack time. Theo has got rolls upon rolls and it just makes me so happy. He’s my chunkiest baby for sure. I think he’s trying to say his first word, we’ll see what it is. I’m 2/2 with “mama” being the first word, so come on Theo, let’s make it 3/3. He’s a joy and treasure and we love him so.

Theo at seven months

Theophilus is seven months old and he is celebrating with table side guac. Well maybe just regular smooshed avocado. Same thing right?
Speaking of food, this last month we introduced solids and ya boy likes to eat.
He’s obsessed with veggies in the orange varieties and that makes diaper changes really special.
He is a seriously fast crawler and this week he’s has started pulling himself up to stand and that is just swell. No really, I’m fine.
He’s our chillest babe and pretty much goes with the flow. He is our first baby to actually sleep in the crib for an extended period of time so praise the sweet baby Jesus.
He is still a nursing champ but takes a bottle of the pumped house white just fine when with his nanny.
He enjoys pulling hair, drooling prodigiously, long walks near the bay, and bath time.
I also think he’s cutting his first tooth because OUCH.
He’s a golden ray of sunshine and sparkly rainbows and we just love him more than words.
Happy seven months little Theo!

Theo at six months

This has been a busy season the past few months, but I haven’t forgotten to take our sweet Theo’s monthly photos. So get ready for a post dump.

Happy half birthday sweet Theophilus! '

SIX months with this precious boy of ours. He’s a mover, he’s a shaker, he’s a drooler. He’s brought so much joy into our lives and he was made for our family. He’s our happiest (and chubbiest) baby and I’m just so grateful for his presence in our lives. He actually sleeps at night (third time is the charm) and his thigh rolls give me LIFE.

HAPPY HALF BIRTHDAY!
