Monthly Update: Month 8

on January 22, 2014

Weight: Haven’t got him weighed this week (he had a lovely vomiting bug yesterday), but two weeks ago he weighed 20lb 2.

Bedtime: Still at 7pm. Mine is now at half 10! And with my sometimes random insomnia, it can be a lot later. Even better, over the past few weeks he has sometimes not even stirred overnight for his dummy! Two nights was because of his illness, but he had done a few before that, too!

Naps/Length: Three or two. And his final one is interrupted by a quick feed. His early am one all depends on if he’s awake by 7am though.

Number of feeds in 24hrs: 5 with his dreamfeed becoming incredibly quicker.

Favourite toy/objects: He’s been loving his toy remote control, his walker, maracas and his building block stars.

Clothing age: 6-9 months except his sleepsuit and snowsuits which are 9-12. His legs are too long for one and far too short for the other, but it’s only a problem before we get him dressed and he’s trying to stand!

Foot length: 10.3cm still.

Milestones: He can pull himself up to standing on anything and everything. From sitting and lying down, and even in his grobag. He can now crawl and commando crawl, and he prefers to eat teeny things with his pincer grip! You can see him trying to figure out how exactly to sit back down when standing, but he has enough balance to pick up toys off the floor. He’s certainly started coasting, too!

My swimming ability: 1100m. I did make an extra 50m the other day, it might be a fluke!

What I’m reading: Going well with Clash of Kings, I’ve even decided to re-read Dance and Feast together and then by character for a 3rd re-read!

New Foods: scotch eggs and cheerios!

Number of Stairs: 2.

Time Across the Landing: 45 seconds.

Words: He repeats the m sound when upset and d when he’s happy. Elvis also loves the g sound so we’re trying to teach him gigidy!

Fears: He hates the vacuum cleaner. He’s petrified of it! And he doesn’t like the whipped cream can, yet he likes whipped cream. Odd boy!
