As Ben is now actually 9 months old, but a lot has changed in the past month so his 9 month update will soon be up. A bit different to the past couple of months where not much did change.
Ben is loving his solids, each time I make a new puree I try and do it a bit lumpier than the last one, he is definitely getting better with lumps, and eats smooth foods super fast now, like sweet potato and fromage frais, along with his Ready Brek. He's learning the concept of chewing well, I must start giving him more finger foods though, like toast. He tends to put too much in his mouth though, so I'm so scared about him chocking.
Movement wise, he' scooching around so fast, on his tummy, and getting into the crawling position, but not crawling. I really wish he would start crawling soon, but atleast he is on the move. Sitting up wise he now topples over a lot less, he still does it.
He loves going for things he's not allowed to, like wires, Christmas tree decorations, tinsel, or he'll find some kind of rubbish and put it in his mouth, so I have to watch him all the while. He is quite independent and will play on his own if he's in the ride mood to.
Aswel as saying mama, he now says baba, rara, and papa. He hasn't said dada yet. I do wonder if that's because of his tongue tie, because most babies say dada as their first word.
