My baby is growing up! He’s fifty weeks old today.
Today also marks the day that I realized I’m back to pre-pregnancy weight! Go me!
But this post isn’t about me. It’s about the cute baby we welcomed into our family 11.5 months ago.
His sleep is somewhat better the past couple of days. We’re past the ear infection (I hope) and he’s back to being the happy baby we all know and love. He’s entering a screaming phase, which I’ve also read about (so I kind of knew it was coming.) If he doesn’t get his way, he has a hard time communicating, so he just screams. Must work on that.
He LOVES Cheerios! He’s such a great eater, and I’m trying to get away from the puffs, so I tried Cheerios. Just loves them. He did bite his lip or tongue on Sunday while eating the Cheerios, which wasn’t a happy moment, but he thinks they’re the best. Especially if he can slam his sippy cup down on them and crush them.
In the photos this week, he’s playing with finger puppets we got him in New York. They are favorite toys right now. Our neighbors also gave him a dog lovey (it’s more of a small blanket, in the shape of a dog blanket) with Lucas’s name embroidered on it. He thinks that’s lots of fun in his crib.
He has been making noises with his toys, which is amusing to watch. Every day is an adventure, and we’re really enjoying it (except those days that are sick days. Those are not so fun.)
Oh, and the outfit he’s wearing today? All 18-month clothes. Where did my super squishy tiny baby go?
