S E V E N! We're officially in the 1st birthday planning time frame! I love his personality, he's the sweetest, chunkiest cuddle bug I've ever met, and I love it so much!


Weight: 22ish lbs
Height: 27.25inches


Food | Not much has changed from a month ago, he still nurses 5-6 times a day and then his normal 3 five oz bottles at school. I diced up a banana and froze it and let him eat those and he loved that, but it was messy once they started to thaw. He has some baked potato and seemed to like that. We will slowly introduce table food, as in, if we're eating something he can have, we'll let him try it.



Sleep | He is sleeping so well, we've started putting him to sleep with McKinlee's rainforest lullaby's and it's so soothing for him that he'll fall asleep within the first 10 minutes. We we're having a difficult time getting him to sleep through the night because he felt like he needed to nurse to fall back asleep, so the pediatrician recommended that we try putting him to bed while he's still awake and let him put himself fall asleep. It's really helped, he probably sleeps 4 out of 7 nights of the week completely through. We put him down between 7:30 and 8:30 and the nights he does wake up, it's usually about 3:30am, and I'll nurse him back to sleep and put him back in his bed.

Size | He is wearing size 12-18 months rompers usually, 6-12 months pants, and typically 2T shirts. Size 3 diapers.


Firsts | No new major firsts this month

the FUN stuff | we're SO CLOSE to crawling! It's seriously so fun to watch we'll see him get up on his knees and we'll all stop what we're doing to see if this will be the time he learns what to do with his hands, ha! He has pulled up on the couch once to a standing position and just stood there and was so giddy! He's the sweetest baby! He loves his sister, so much! Everyone says he has a "poker face" since he's so serious all the time, but he's slowly starting to flash a smile towards others! We are teething, so there's that. Lots of slobber and lots of tears, but we'll get through it!
