How old is baby? 10 months! Almost a year old already!
Doctor’s appointments?: April 25th, 2013
Clothes size: He wears a lot of 9 month stuff, but needs to move up to 12m, especially jammies. Needs 12-18m pants.
Diaper size: Still in 3’s, but I think we’ll be going up a size soon. He’s starting to leak again.
Hair color: Blonde...and in need of a hair cut!
Verbal skills: He does lots of babbling. He’s making a ton of new sounds.
Rolling: Not a primary mode of transport, but he still does.
Crawling: It’s how he gets around. And boy is he fast!
Walking: Not yet, but he cruises on the furniture and can stand himself up in the middle of a room.
Anything else? Since everything went down with our health issues this month, I’ve started bathing both kids together to save time. They love it!!
Things he likes: His favorite toys are his Weebles, the Fisher Price Wheelies and Little People, and the Little People Zoo. He is just starting to get into reading books.
Things he dislikes: Diaper/clothes changes.
Sleeping: He’s just finally starting to sleep better. Most nights he sleeps from around 8-8:30pm until 6am. Sometimes he wakes up once for a bottle and then goes back to sleep. He’s also officially down to one nap per day. If we drive somewhere in the morning he’ll usually sleep in the car. Otherwise his afternoon naps have been about 3 hours.
Eating: He eats really well! Usually a yogurt cup and jar of fruit for breakfast, 2 jars of food for lunch, and 2 for dinner. He drinks 2 or 3-8oz bottles of formula during the day, mostly before naps/bedtime. For snacks he likes puffs or yogurt melts. I’ve been trying to get him to eat table food, but he still has trouble with textures.
Nicknames: Magpie (he is drawn to shiny stuff), buddy, the captain.
Things we’re looking forward to next month: We’re looking forward to EVERYONE being healthy!
How I like motherhood: I love being a mom. Especially right now. The kids are so much fun! They love to laugh at each other. They love playing together and it just warms my heart to see them interacting with each other.
Likes: I’ve really enjoyed being off work for the last month, I just wish it were for a better reason!
Dislikes: I really dislike having to take care of both kids while suffering/recovering from a concussion.
