It’s Giovanni’s 8 month birthday (yesterday)! In just four short months my little dude will be 1 and I can’t even believe it. I watched his birth story again (as I tend to do each month around this time) and its just so hard to believe it was almost a year ago that I finally held Gio in my arms for the first time!
Little dude is starting to slow down in the weight department, weighing in at about 20 pounds currently. I’m not sure if this is due to teething or how active he has been, crawling around the house at the speed of light!
This last month just flew by, as they all tend to these days… Isabella got sick and then Gio ended up getting sick as well. Because of this I haven’t really offered anything new to Gio’s menu lately other than some brown quinoa rice (which he actually really seems to like), Spanish rice, zuchinni, carrots and a tortilla. lol He still seems to be tasting more than eating most foods but surprisingly takes in more than I ever expected him to with baby led weaning.
As far as sleep goes, we seem to be getting on a better sleep schedule lately – the last couple months had gotten rough with growth spurts and illnesses. We had gotten back to waking up every 2 hours to nurse or just to be held and it was seriously slowing me down. I’m hoping we can go back to waking up only twice a night (but once would be better!).
These are a few of my favorite photos of Giovanni from the last month.
So, now that we are just a few short months away from celebrating 1, its time to start brainstorming birthday party ideas!! I’d love to hear any exciting ideas you have or any party planning Pinterest boards that I should be following in the comments below. 🙂
