One more month until this baby's FIRST BIRTHDAY. I just cannot even fathom that he has almost been on this planet one whole year. Time flies even faster with each baby, and he has changed so much over the last few months. He is still the sweetest baby (not always the happiest baby though) that we've had (shhh don't tell the girls), and he's also a huge momma's boy...although I swore I'd never have one of those! He hates my studio and taking pictures in general, so most of our session included a less-than-thrilled Grant and some eating pictures (because the puffs made him stop crying). Here's to the last month in his first year of life.
What you've been up to lately:
*You weigh 19.2 pounds. I think you lost a little weight this month, because you are a wild maniac.
*We still put you to bed around 7:30 unless you took a late nap that day. You will sleep until around 7/8am.
*Morning naps are still all over the place, but your afternoon nap is always a solid 2-3 hours.
*You still love the water and had so much fun in the pool this Summer. You absolutely love bath time too! You would play and splash for hours if I'd let you.
*You will still eat pureed food for breakfast, but for other meals, you prefer solid food. You love mac n cheese, all fruits (strawberries and bananas are your favs), grilled cheese, turkey, puffs, crackers, cereal, and pretty much any other carbohydrate.
*You love your milk still, and you have a habit of wanting your bottle right when you get in your carseat. I can see through the mirror behind your chair that you only hold it in your mouth most of the time and aren't actually drinking from it.
*You love to wave "hi" and "buh bye" to everyone that says it to you.
*We've had to put away all of your 9-month clothes. Your pajamas are mainly 18-months, with a few 12-month onesies still fitting.
*Still wearing size-3 diapers.
*You have TWO TEETH now! Both are your top teeth. I'm not sure when your bottom teeth are going to pop through, they don't feel very close.
*Alli has really come to love you these past few months. She loves to hug, kiss, hug, and play with you. She is your biggest fan right now!
*You are still so ticklish under your chin and in your inside thigh.
*You only crawl up on your hands and knees now, no more army/swimming crawl.
*You still get scared when we are holding you going down the stairs. You will dig your nails into our arms and tense up.
*Your least favorite thing in this world to do is to get out of the tub and/or to have your diaper changed (that is, if we're not trying to take pictures, then that would be his least favorite thing to do).
*You are saying a few words clearly now. Your favorite word is "uh-oh", and you say it all the time, especially when the girls say it to you. You also say "mama" "dada" "dog" "hi" "buh bye".
