on him: Hux baby X tee and Alphabet leggings found here
Magnus turned seven months the other day. He’s becoming such a big boy and really trying to keep up with his big brother. Everyone tells you that time goes by even faster with a second, or third baby, but its hard to imagine until it happens to you. I feel as though he’s changing in the blink of an eye. Unlike when Johannes got older though, this time I’m prepared, and genuinely excited. I love what’s to come, and can’t wait to see how Magnus changes, the funny things he will do and say, and getting to see him take his very first steps.
Sweet Magnus is big but gentle. You wouldn’t know that he’s overtired, EVER, because when he is tired he simply gets a little quieter and gigglier. He loves to nurse, especially at night, and I’m completely ok with waking up to do this, I almost cherish those moments. Magnus now gets up on all fours, and has discovered that if he wants to get somewhere he can. Be it through wiggles, or lunges, or rolls, he is mobile, and crawling is just around the corner.
There are no signs of teeth yet, but that doesn’t stop him from eating or chewing. What started off as a reluctant love affair with food, has now evolved into a true love. There is no food that he has tasted yet which he doesn’t love, and unlike how I was when Johannes was a baby, I am much less cautious this time around. If Magnus wants to try it I let him, be it chunks of bread or strawberries or bites of banana, I’m kind of all for it.
My car rides are a bit noisier now. Johannes has found an audience in his little brother and so the silliness is at an all-time-high. Magnus in turn finds his big brother hilarious, so no more quiet peaceful drives for me. I am almost certain that Magnus’ first word will be “farts”, because he hears it over and over and over again.
S E V E N – its treating us pretty well so far.
