Monthly Update: Month 11

on April 21, 2014

Weight: 22lb 14oz

Bedtime: Same as before, 7pm for him and maybe half ten for me. He also doesn’t go to sleep straight away anymore and can talk to himself in his cot for up to an hour. I blame the lighter evenings.

Naps/Length: Well, isn’t this a tricky topic! I’ve made him cut out his first nap; 8am was far too early to have a nap especially when twice a week we need to leave the house by 9am! So now we don’t get him up until half 7 (after I eat my breakfast in peace), then he has two naps, one at about 10 or 11 and then at 3. It can take 30-45 minutes of him talking to himself before he falls asleep. These naps vary from 1hr to 2.5hrs, but are about 3 hours for the whole day.

Number of feeds in 24hrs: I was going to wait until today, his 11 month birthday, to drop his two feeds to one, but the other night I was lazy and went to bed without doing his dream feed. He hasn’t had it since. His one remaining feed is a bit hit and miss now.

Favourite toy/objects: He likes dancing on his Sit to Stand Tower, we’ve just discovered that his head being smooshed into things (including me and Daddy) are him hugging! He likes climbing the stairs and would prefer that to toys! Oh, and climbing backwards onto his chair and trying to climb off of the top of it. He climbed onto a toddler seesaw the other day and loved it, along with the large tunnel for climbing through that I thought would scare him!

Clothing age: 9-12 month in everything except his hat which is 1yr to 3yr because I couldn’t find 12-18 month and thought he was too far through for a 9-12month one.

Foot length: Haven’t done it this month yet!

Milestones: He spent a day shaking his head constantly and has now stopped that again! Oh, and, of course, he has two teeth!

My swimming ability: The pool is constantly closed on the weekend, so I’ve started jogging and am currently on 20 minutes twice a week.

What I’m reading: I’ve made it onto the re-read of Storm and Swords.

New Foods: I tried white chocolate today. He did not like it, so more for me!

Teeth: Two! But they’re tiny!

Words: Other than the “ah” noise that me makes when he smooshes things with his face, none.

Fears: Noisy books, the ones with the buttons – he presses the button, screams and then presses the button again. He still hates the hoover. I bought some toy fish for the bath, when he has them in the bath, Elvis is fine, but outside of the bath the green one makes him cry.
