Enjoys: crawling everywhere, trying to climb on things though he’s not that great at it, pretty much all food right now even veggies!, attempting to feed himself with a fork, and the puppies.
Milestones: he is officially crawling and is all over the place. We have to watch him like a hawk because he’s pretty quick. He always goes for shoes and cords. He’s also attempting to pull to stand but not quite there yet.
Teeth: teething has been kicking our butts over the last few days. He has 6 teeth officially broken through the skin (2 on bottom, 4 on top) and I’m pretty confident he is getting his canine tooth on the top. He has been super fussy, chewing on everything and sleeping pretty terribly. He was up at 3 am for the day this weekend. Luckily Joe was amazing and took him so I could get some extra sleep. Last night was a little bit better and he actually fell back asleep after waking around 3:30 am and a feeding. Hopefully he’ll get back on track soon!
Sleep: just touched on this but we’re in a bit of a rough patch right now. He was sleeping through until 5-6 a.m. most nights but we’ve had a few nights of more wake ups. He’s also skipped a nap and taken a super short one. All out of the norm as of late. Hopefully he’ll get back on track. Though we are traveling tomorrow and have a 6:30 a.m. flight…
Food: solids have started getting really easy. He has been eating pretty much anything lately and I haven’t even had to push the veggies. He did figure out how to eat off a fork (once I put the food on it). So sometimes he refuses to feed himself unless I put it on a fork first. Not sure I’m thrilled I showed him that new skill… Some of his favorites right now include: blueberries, avocado, sweet potato, roasted carrots, oranges and all meat.
Exercise: lots of morning walks when I can and online videos.
Travel: headed to Omaha tomorrow for a week! Not thrilled about the flight times/schedule but hoping we can manage. Not feeling nearly as apprehensive about it this time around.
