So pretty soon I’m going to have to stop using ‘but I just had a baby’ as an excuse for things. Suddenly my baby is gone, I now have a mini man! Our days just keep getting more and more fun over here and I’m so thankful I get the enjoy my summer playing with this guy!
Weight: He hasn’t been weighed since last month but I’m sure he’s 20lbs!
Length: Also hasn’t been measured since last month but I’m guessing he’s still around 27″.
Clothes: He’s pretty much exclusively in 12 month sizes now.
Feedings: Feeding this kid is a bit of an adventure. If he doesn’t like something he will let you know, usually in the form of spitting it EVERYWHERE. He’s a bit ridiculous. He still prefers sweet foods like fruits and sweet potatoes, but he devoured some ground bison a couple weeks ago! He currently gets a bottle when he wakes up, fruit and oatmeal for breakfast, another bottle after his morning nap, lunch consisting of something I may be eating for lunch, leftovers, or some puree from the freezer and another bottle, he gets a fourth bottle after his afternoon nap, dinner (same as lunch), a bottle before bed and one in the night. Lunch and dinner I usually let Liam do a bit of baby led weaning as well as spoon feed him. It’s a fun and messy time for us. He seems very adamant on feeding himself most of the time but I think mostly he just wants to rub the spoon on his gums.
Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good. He usually takes 3 one-hour naps and wakes once in the night for a bottle. However there are days when he wakes early and needs and extra nap, or takes shorter/longer naps randomly, but that’s ok! We’ve completely ditched the swaddles/sleep sacks just because it’s been so warm and I’m afraid of him getting too hot in the night.
Teeth: Still only the two bottom teeth. He’s really been fussing and rubbing stuff on his gums hard but I don’t see any signs of anything poking out soon.
Personality: This kid is a HAM. Seriously, he’s so goofy. I love the way he will do something then look at you and laugh or give his silly, bottom lip sucked in smile. His name means strong willed warrior and I can already tell he’s going to live up to that. He does everything in his own time and he will do it his way.
Milestones: We have a mover! Just last week Liam randomly flipped from his back to his tummy on his own and since then I haven’t been able to keep him in one place. He rolls all over the place and gets into whatever he can. It won’t be long until he crawls as he already gets his legs under him, he just needs to figure out how to coordinate his arms too.
Likes: Animals, his B You drum and percussion set, the Jolly Jumper
Dislikes: Getting his face wiped after meals, running into things when he rolls, having something taken away
