Each time I say I’m going to update, I never do. So you know what? I’m going to start saying I’m going to update sooner and just do it. Yay for everyone!
But you don’t care about how I’m doing. You want to know how The Artist Formerly Known as Yoda Bear is doing. Let’s check in…
Weight: 20 lbs.
Length/Height: 29 inches
Diaper size and type: Size 3, Huggies Little Movers.
Onesie size: He’s still in some six-month onesies but those are few and far in between. He’s mostly in 9 and 12-month clothes. I just purchased 18 month clothes the other day.
Yoda discoveries: Crawling. He loves to explore and see the world!
What he loves: Seeing people. He loves baths and he loves going out for walks. He loves the sights and sounds. He really loves other babies and children.
What he hates: He doesn’t like me being too gone out of his sight. He particularly doesn’t care for new people if they’re all over him.
Sleep habits/schedule: I try to not let Yoda stay up for longer than three hours at a time, though sometimes it’s hard to put him down. He takes several naps throughout the day and is still staying up all night to get lucky. He currently has two bottom teeth with two top teeth poking through. For the past several months, he’s been sleeping with me in the middle of the night, though I have been trying to put him back in his bassinet. Not that I’m not a fan of cosleeping but I miss my own space. We haven’t attempted to put him in his crib yet though we’re trying to get him to get used to it.
Boobies, boobies, boobies: Still breastfeeding and plan to for a while. We introduced rice cereal, butternut squash and corn, and pears to him. He doesn’t particularly care for avocados and apples, which is surprising. He also doesn’t like puffs or melts. I’m going to keep trying. He might just be picky.
Our special time: He really is my little buddy. I mean, I just love to kick it with him. I get on the floor and play with him and we always go out at least four times a week, just to get out of the house.
Next milestone: Waiting for him to walk! He’s crawling up a storm and he prefers to stand while he holds himself up. Just waiting for the next adventure!
