Although I did take photos when Pipi hit her 7 month milestone, we too busy moving in and then going away for me to write her 7 month post – hence the double update. The 8 month old photos were taken the other day, on the 9th Jan, when Pipi officially became one month older.
It’s pretty clear , with these two photos side by side that she’s grown A LOT! Her hair is longer, her face chubbier as is the rest of her body – although she is aided in the 8 month pic by a bit of a bulky re-usable nappy.
Pipi continues to sleep very well, now has 5 teeth (2 down the bottom and 3 up top), is an extremely proficient crawler – this started in earnest at about 6.5 months, a few weeks before Christmas – after much rocking. She’s now pulling herself up on furniture a bit, but I think she wont be walking for a wee bit longer.
Pipi is still not overly keen on solids (she seems to hate baby rice with a vengeance), but seems to like the baby lead weaning approach… I haven’t looked into this before because my other 2 took to purees straight away. Pipi still prefers to get most of her calories from me and is still continuing to thrive and grow, so I’m not worried.
I love these photos I took of Noah and Pipi (at 7 months). Pipi continues to look a lot like Noah did as a baby and these two share a pretty special bond, which I think is captured well in these shots.
I only managed a couple of Pipi at 8 months as she was far too eager to get on the move. However, with the help of a squeaky toy I was able to keep her still long enough to take a half decent comparison shot …
…. And then she was off looking for more bits of carpet fluff to eat and electrical cords to hunt down.
Here are the photos from the previous months to compare…
