We kind of missed out on taking care of Jacob this morning because last night, around 2 'o clock in the morning, we were visited by a tiny rat. There is a freaking infestation here! Here we were thinking that they haven't gone in our room. I thought that was our safe haven. But no! There's been a tiny rat going in and out. I swear he is tiny, like it was still a baby rat. Anyway, Osc spent 30 minutes trying to catch/kill it. He did. I felt bad because I don't necessarily like doing that but the little pest went on Jacob's table so that pissed me off. I spent the whole time in our bathroom drowning out the noise that Osc was making by playing music on my phone. I didn't want to hear any of it! :(
Throughout the whole ordeal, Jacob was asleep! Did not even move or change position! Osc was making so much noise that I could still hear some of the banging outside. He did not even flinch. This child! My gosh! The scenario would make such a great post on 9gag.com! Yes, my soul has been taken. I am addicted to 9gag!
I headed out and bought those sticky paper things that catches rats/roaches/whatever. They already caught one downstairs. I had to ask our helper to clean/sanitize our room and downstairs because of these freaking pests. When my Mom gets home I hope we can get professional exterminators to help us with this problem.
Anyway! Let's talk about Jacob now!
Jacob is 8 months and 13 days old! We don't really celebrate his birth monthsaries like some do because I don't really get why you have to. No judgement though. To each his own. Every day with him is a celebration so no need to bring out the cake and candles. Read more after the jump!
He's been very malikot, or active, lately! He discovered how to stand up with support by himself around 7 months old so he's been doing that non-stop. He likes using me or Osc as support when we are laying down. He crawls so fast now it's crazy! I read in "What To Expect: The First Year" that some babies are just starting to crawl or what. I guess Jacob is different because he enjoyed tummy time during his first couple of months compared to other newborns.
Oh how he loves standing up! He bounces up and down like a Tigger! He walks towards me (assisted of course!) when I go into a room. I can feel the love! :D
I don't have a picture of his two front lower teeth. They both started coming out late January. So cute. I'm lucky he hasn't bitten me yet while breastfeeding. Although he did before, accidentally, and it hurt like a, you know! Oh and yes, he is still breastfeeding! Hooray! Though he gets a bit more bottled milk than before. He still breastfeeds.
Look at me, I'm boasting with joy! If you're a Mom, you know how I feelhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif. I'm just so happy my little boy is growing up healthy and happy. I pray every day that I will be able to give him everything he needs and deserves.
I have so much to talk about him. From his feeding, new schedule and first time experiences like swimming, carousel and train rides! I have so much backlog on posts so forgive me if I would post twice a day in the next couple of weeks.
YOU! Yes you! How's your baby girl/boy doing?! Let me know below on the comments section!
