My peanut is getting big!

8.5 months old now. I cant even begin to tell you how happy this child makes me. He is the happy to my soul. A lot of things have changed as they will keep changing. I no longer breastfeed. Or E/P in my case. I started producing less and less at the 8 month mark and I also started a job in Manhattan so that gave me the push to stop all together considering my commute. My last pump was this week. It is a bittersweet feeling. I truly don't like the thought of formula as my sweet baby does not smell like a baby anymore..He smells like a vitamin cabinet. I miss the smell of his sweet spit up. There truly is no scent like it. I think every mother needs that scent to get through the first year. Ha. And I don't like that there is corn syrup in formula..BUT it is kind of a HUGE relief that I don't have to pump 4 times a day anymore. Well anyway he is onto table food and formula. Hes doing so well with the table food I am so proud of him.
Some things I give him include: Pancakes, Eggs,Chicken, Pasta, Cheese, Kiwi, Bread, Blueberries, Strawberries, Watermelon, Tomatoes, Black beans, Carrots, Green beans, Broccoli and peas. Just to name a few!
He's a healthy growing happy boy and I am so in love with his smile and his raspy little laugh. He also started crawling right after Christmas!
No teeth YET, No talking YET or walking.. but they are all right around the corner... as is his first birthday.. UGH. I cant even handle it.
