Monthly Update: Month 9

on February 21, 2014

Weight: 21lb 11 and slowly moving up a centile, my little chunky monkey!

Bedtime: 7pm for him still, me about half 10 or later. And with my insomnia maybe 2am!

Naps/Length: He’s decided he wants a morning nap if we’re not at a group which can last until mid-morning, stopping his mid-morning nap! His afternoon naps can then last over an hour. It’s all a bit hit and miss, but not haphazard. If that makes sense?

Number of feeds in 24hrs: Recently he’s dropped a feed, now he has 3 during the day and I dreamfeed before bed, so 4. His dreamfeed had started to be really quick so I thought he was dropping it, but then we spent a few days really busy and he dropped a daytime one instead. Now, during the day, he goes 5-6 hours. I remember when he first got to that overnight!

Favourite toy/objects: Elvis loves knocking over his tower, hitting things together, hitting everything in general.

Clothing age: 9-12 months in everything but trousers.

Foot length: 10.3cm.

Milestones: Can climb the stairs. Walked across the room with his walker. He may have done his first ever sign!

My swimming ability: Been a bit ill this month so I’ve dropped to about 1000m. Stupid cough!

What I’m reading: Still on Clash. Elvis has been sleeping better so I don’t get the opportunity to read.

New Foods: He eats pasta well now and sometimes likes chomping on carrots and cucumber. I’m not sure I’ve offered him anything new, but he has enjoyed sausages and chicken finally! He also loves crackers.

Number of Stairs: All of them! He now alternates which leg he goes up each step, first one with a knee, second leg with his foot. No falls either!

Time Across the Landing: 15 seconds.

Words: None. But he may have signed ‘milk’.

Fears: He no longer seems scared of the hoover. He’s not as bad with sudden loud noises, but he’ll cry if someone else does. He can also cry when put down before deciding he’s happy!
