I was really bad, and wasn't keeping up your baby book at this time, so I can only write what I had on the calendar.
"You Are Growing Up Too Fast!!"
This month I started teaching you to use a sippy cup at dinner when you have your water. YOU LOVE WATER!! You are very melodramatic and choke on your water all the time. I have to teach you to take 'little sips'.
You love avocados, mangoes, yoghurt, peaches, and peppers (some of the many foods we tried this month). You DO NOT like fish!
You are starting to say lots of ma ma ma and da da da. Mostly da da da.
You love playing pat-a-cake. When I go to clap your hands, you bring your hands up in the air very excitedly hoping that, by chance, my hands may actually hit yours.
You love your Banana toy, and of course, you still love your Monkey.
At night time, you sleep with Monkey, Blue Bear, and Blankie.
You aren't really rolling much anymore. You'll roll in bed back to front, but rarely ever in the living room. You never roll front to back anymore. I think you are happy to just sit and reach for things. Hmmmmm.
I've been getting you slowly ready for Daylight Savings Time ending. Considering that you actually wake about 30-40 minutes before 'the day starts', and I sure don't want you waking at 5:20 or 5:30am, I thought I'd get your routine moved up a half hour this month and a half hour next month. That way, when the clocks go back, you'll be back at 7-7 again.
Up to the beginning of September, you've tried, rice cereal, pears, carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, green beans, zucchini, turnips, oats, peaches, and parsnips.
Since you don't have a history of deathly allergies in your family, I've stepped up food introduction this month to 2 foods every 3 days. You seem just fine. With peppers, I introduced them alone because I react to them.
Your naps this month are usually 9:30am for 2 hours tops, another nap 2.5 hours from when you last woke until 3:00pm. Your bedtime is 7:30pm.
Your feeding times are usually, 7:30am (bottle and breakfast), 11:30am (lunch/ no more bottle once protein was introduced), 3:00pm (bottle), 5:30pm (dinner and water), 7:00pm (bottle).
This month, I finally found you back-up Monkeys in case yours gets lost or destroyed one day.
Here's your day
E - 7:30am
A - after the feed
S - 9:30am (for no more than 2 hours)
E - 11:30am
A - after the feed
S - 2 hours from when you last woke
