One more month until Jimmie is one. ONE! Some days sure are long, but this year has been one of the shortest.
Favorites: Waving, clapping, pasta, crawling towards things he isn’t supposed to have.
Weight: We went to the doctors last week because I thought Jimmie had an ear infection (he didn’t) and he weighed 22 pounds 11 ounces.
Firsts this month: Jimmie crawled, waved, and clapped this month. He also reacts to his own name and when you call him monkey. Jimmie had my gravy (red) for the first time, mac and cheese, kiwi, and blueberries. He is eating a lot of the same meals we are eating. (At least we attempt to give him what we have and then he picks and chooses what he likes.) I also gave him his first taste of whole milk. Let the transition from bottle to cup and from formula to milk begin.Ugh I’m already hating it!
Nightly sleep schedule: Goes to bed around 7 and wakes up around 7:15 am. He hardly ever wakes up for his pacifier anymore and he finally stopped fighting his naps.
Favorite toy: Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Puppy’s Crawl along ball – this actually got Jimmie to crawl for the first time and he still enjoys chasing after it. I give it five stars for finally motivating my laid-back kid to crawl!
Hardest moment of the month: Honestly, seeing some of my friend’s kids, who are younger than Jimmie, do more than him when it come to gross motor skills. I know every kid is different and I know he can do a lot of things other babies may not be able to do, but it’s still hard NOT to compare. I remind myself every day that he will be able to do it all soon enough.
Best moment of the month: Spring finally arriving. I am finally able to carry Jimmie to and from the car without lugging the car seat along too.
