A little late but finally getting a post up! I cant believe how quickly the weeks are passing now! Summer is flying by and I will soon have a newly appointed one year old. But not yet! I’m clinging to these days of baby-hood for as long as possible.
I remember in the very early days, when my anxiety was high and I was sleep deprived and in a flare. I remember looking forward to his getting bigger and on a schedule and dreaming of the days when he would SLEEP. And while he still isn’t the best sleeper, he is in a really fun and adorable stage. And now, I find myself wishing to be able to go back in time and snuggle him as a newborn again. Isn’t that always the way it is? Obviously I’m still a work in progress when it comes to truly living in the moment.
Anyway, this sweet boy started crawling last month and he is a fiesty one. He pulls up on everything and can cruise around the couches and tables. He loves his evening walks and bath but his most favorite thing is eating. I guess he did get some genes from me after all ;). His favorite food is still salmon but a close second is blueberries. Breastfeeding wise, he still nurses every 2-4 hours (day and night).
He is taking 2 naps a day (around 9 am and 1 pm) and goes to bed at 8pm. He wakes up anywhere from 5-7. Of course he isn’t even close to sleeping through the night but I know he will get there so I’m not too worried about it.
Teething is in full swing but so far he still just has his bottom two teeth. We call it the reverse beaver!
This month we are really working on signing and he now attempts to sign along when I’m doing the abcs and he will sign more and milk and all done. He babbles all the time and loves to make monkey sounds.
Car rides are still hit or miss but if it’s short and sweet I can usually avoid him screaming. That’s a big improvement! However he is still not a fan of strangers and will cry if anyone other than Daddy, Austin, or I try to hold him.
For stats: He weighs 22 pounds and is about 28 inches tall. He wears 18 month clothing.
This sweet boy is such a gift. I don’t get much of anything done these days but he is worth every moment.
Maybe when he turns 11 months I’ll actually post on time!
