This sweet, joyful, wild&crazy little man has been on this earth 10 whole months. It's so hard to believe yet it is also hard to imagine our family without his infectious smile and giggle.
height/weight: he didn't have a check up this month so I'm not sure exactly how much he weighs, but I feel like he is packing on the pounds in the most adorable way possible.
size: he is in size 4 daytime and night time diapers. he is in all 12 month clothes.
eating: this has been his "big boy transition" month for him. he has had pretty much all he can have at this point (no dairy yet!). he had eggs, steak, chicken, fish, rice, bites of almost all fruits, bread, I lost track of all of his new foods. He wakes up and takes 7-8 oz bottle and then has cereal, he has a fruit medley for lunch, an 8 oz bottle before nap, a bottle after nap, and puree veggies (plus baby bites of whatever we are having) for dinner, and 8 oz before bed. So far the only thing he doesn't like is cut up bananas and quinoa. boy loves some food!
sleeping: hallalujah ! Parker is finally sleeping through the night. 10 months later and he has finally figured out how to find one of his five packs in his crib and put himself back to sleep. (i also started exercising this month- coincidence? I think not. yay for sleep) He wakes up 630-715 but I leave him in his crib until at least 7am. He is so happy when I go up to get him:) he still takes a little morning nap sometimes 9-10, for 20-45 minutes usually. Then after I give him his bottle around 1245 he passes out for his afternoon nap. this gives me 30-45 minutes of alone time with Ainsley where we read and play (thank goodness she still naps too!). So they both sleep until 330-4ish, and I recharge for the second half:)
this has been his biggest month for "milestones". he is a crawling jackrabbit who can move across the room faster than I can turn around.
he says "da-da" and is starting to say "ba ba"
he can clap his hands together
he signs "more" but I'm not convinced it's intentional yet
he cruises all around the house and can stand on his own, but when he tried to take a step his head usually pulls his body down, causing bruises that make me cringe
he can climb steps on his own (with pop behind him cheering him on!)
he still only had two teeth
He sort of skipped the sippy cup and loves drinking from a straw
his hair is really blonde and has a slight curl to it :)
he is a huge momma's boy
he loves to FaceTime Nanny & Pop
he hears the bath water and takes off sprint-crawling to bath and nearly breaks his neck trying to get in
he loves being chased around the house
he loves to "go flying" with daddy
Sissy is slowly warming up to him- she has a LONG way to go, but is taking baby steps towards being nice to her little brother:)
