He has been teething like crazy! So one minute he is happy as can be and the next he gets very upset.
He will only eat food from pouches and refuses to be spoon fed.
He wakes up at odd hours of the night and wants to talk and stay awake!
Loves being in my arms ALL day.
Likes watching his big brother at basketball practice.
There are those little teeth!
Likes Mickey Mouse and Baby Einsteins.
Enjoys going for walks on sunny days in his Beco Gemini.
Sometimes wants to eat our puppy Chewbacca.
Sleeps in the cutest positions!!
Absolutely loves jumping around!!!
Loves his grandpa <3
Enjoys the occasional selfie.
Speaks his mind and then passes out!
Having clubfoot has not changed the fact that he is a normal baby. I love him to death, yet there are days he drives me crazy! However, I remember my other boys doing the same at his age. At 8 months he has reached all the "so called" milestones he is supposed to reach at this age. ( I say "so called" because I believe every baby grows and develops at his/her own pace.) He turns 9 months on the 10th and he will be going to part time wear of his boots.
For all you parents out there who are starting off with a clubfoot baby or are pregnant and just found out you will be having a clubfoot baby, do not be discouraged by this diagnosis. Your baby will strive and surprise you daily. Your baby will be a normal happy, sometimes fussy baby. Your baby will show society how great he or she is. Your baby will impress you with their resilience. Your baby will be a baby, just like any other baby, except with special and extra beautiful feet!
A clubfoot parent is a special parent who God chose to raise this beautiful baby. Who finds strength they didn't know they had. Who loves their child unconditionally. Who lives proud knowing their child is an overcomer. Who wakes up each morning ready to take on the day and goes to sleep every night proud of each accomplishment. Never doubt that you can handle what is ahead. Keep calm and clubfoot on!!
