There aren't quite as many photos to share of the duder this month because WIGGLY. The majority of 'em ended up a big blur. Hah! He's not crawling just yet, but is definitely getting there. He can sit up and when on his tummy he's rocking + kicking like cray. My guess is that it's just a matter of time. Though if I had it my way, he'd hold out for another couple of months because SO NOT READY. #nope He was just born after all.
They sent us back to have a 2nd ultrasound done on his head last week (again, just as a precaution) and everything still looks good - just has a big 'ole noggin'! Taking after his older sibs, dis guy. Did I mention that Lola's worn an adult-sized helmet since she was two? It's all dem brains!
Weight // 18.19 lb. (64%)
Height // 27.36in (81%)
Head Circumference // 47.5cm (99%)
See? Big head. HUGE. Though he's not a shrimp in the other categories either. I think he's gonna be tall like Daddy (who's 6'5", btdubs).
LIKES: all the FUDS, talking, jumping, sitting up, playing with his toys, splorin', drinking water, watching cartoons with his bro & sis (which never happened this early with #1 & #2 but YOLO), thumb sucking (cayute!), being outdoors
DISLIKES: forever + always his carseat (which should make for an interesting road trip back to TX next month), being put down, naps (sigh), teething (double sigh)
EATING: We've been alternating between the carrots and sweet potatoes I made him with the Beaba over the past couple of weeks, and he LOVES it. Like whoa! #babyfoodie Also, we recently offered him oatmeal again (which up until now? FAIL) but this time mixed it with fruit (alternating between apples & pears), which has been going over well. He's really digging all the NOMS, so I think we'll add some more options to the mix soon - maybe squash and bananas? We'll see.
SLEEPING: Still not digging the naps, but that week after my ankle surgery where I was on pain meds and nursing? Lots of naps happened then, LOLZ. I thought he had actually become a pro napper, but then I stopped taking 'em and BAM back to no naps. Womp. Still sleeping through the night most nights though!
So much talking going on this month! He's started saying both "mamamamamama" and "dadadadadada" constantly (mama the most though, hah!). I don't think he knows what they mean so much as they're probably just the easiest to say, but I'll take it! I really need to take a video because CUTEST.
Another thing I suspect we're in the midst of is teething. He's constantly chewing he fist, sucking his thumb + drooling like a large dog. There are 4 teeth that look like they're ready to pop through, though it's hard to be certain. I think it may be time to invest in an amber teething necklace - I've heard only good things. Thoughts or recs welcome.
^^^peep dem rubberband wrists - BEST!^^^
It's hard to remember what life was like without you in it, little man. You fit right into the crazy of our family so seamlessly. We love you so, Silas boy!
