Sebby's Eighth Month

Sebby is quite the little globetrotter! He spent his eighth month traveling from PEI to Iceland, Ireland, Scotland then England. He did remarkably well with all the transition and despite a total lack of routine. We were thankful he was able to go with the flow and nap in the carrier as we were out and about (He is pictured here asleep at the Blue Lagoon).

In PEI, he had an opportunity to hang out with his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. All 12 children in my family were able to make it back for one day and we had great fun taking pictures (see below) and catching up!

In Iceland, he experienced the Blue Lagoon and loved it! We were worried the water would be too hot but because it was cold outside, the water temperature was just right. He was one of the only people not sick during our whale watching misadventure.

In Ireland, he saw a few castles, Riverdance and had a taste of the beautiful countryside. He also had two huge milestones in Ireland. He began saying "mama" (his first words, oh, how they warm my heart!) AND his first tooth appeared!

We had just over a week to get settled in Scotland, then we were off to Nottingham, England for a work conference. He was able to really get a handle on the commando crawl and is scampering around more quickly than ever. He also started trying to pull himself up to a standing position, pulling himself up on the set of drawers in our room. He had his eighth month "birthday" here and has already learned some other new skills but I will save them for next time.
