Elroy 9 Months

Had a splashing good time with Elroy this afternoon!

My baby boy turns 9 months old this week. :)

Some updates on Elroy...

He has 4 teeth now (2 on top and 2 at the bottom). He LOVES sweet potatoes and carrots only  when we feed him using our hand. So we boil it till it's rather soft, then cut it into cubes and feed him using our hand sometimes. He can finish a lot of it when we do so! Oh and weird thing is, when we put the cube on a spoon, he refused to eat it....only wants to eat if we feed using our hand. SO WEIRD RIGHT? Haha. We used to mash up ALL his food so it's easier but he doesn't like it like that anymore, he likes more "solid" food recently so he can bite. I dont know why but since he learnt to bite food, he hates mashed up food and it's damn sian to feed him porridge (or anything that has to be fed using a spoon). But still, we have to force him because that's the only way we can get him to eat all the "good stuff" in a meal. It can take up to 45 min for him to finish his food because he moves around SO SO much. Oh and he always uses his hand to push the spoon away. Feeding time with Elroy gets super messy. 
Elroy can crawl super fast now and steadily. He also learnt to hold onto things and stand up on his own now. It's super funny because in the middle of the night, he would stand up in his crib alone! And in the morning when he wakes up, the first thing he does is to stand up and scream for someone to let us know he is awake.

So i mentioned that Elroy is super clingy and bratty in the previous update on him and many have told me the change in behavior could be because he sensed anoter baby coming? I dont know how true is's like some kinda old wives tale. Haha. Quite funny lor but if that's really the reason for the sudden change in his character. I kinda dread the day my belly gets big because then i wont be able to carry him so much. :( It's kinda "dangerous" to lie with him in bed though. He tends to press my belly down and try to stand or like crawl over my belly....and he is HEAVY. Currently weighing 10.5kg so wow, a 10.5kg on my pregnant belly....not good.

He is still super cheerful and always laughing so it's a joy being around him. He sure makes all my worries go away. Oh and one more thing, sometimes he would wave at people and say "AH!!!" when people wave at him and say hello! I guess "AH!!!" is his way of saying hello. It's a 50-50 thing though...sometimes he does it and sometimes he doesn't. But when he does, he sure makes people smile (and make me proud) haha.
