Nicknames: Leeman, Lee-Lee, Forest Boy, Weeward, Wee-whoa
Clothes: 12-18 months, size 3 shoes, and size 3&4 diapers
Sleep: We've switched up your sleep this month. Last month your naps were WONKY, and as much as I wanted to fight for two naps for as long as possible, you were over them. We are officially a one nap family. We've been going strong for about 3 weeks now, and while there are some pros and cons to it, overall, I think its working better for us.
The hardest part is making sure you don't fall asleep in the car before your nap. If we can accomplish that, you are a pretty good napper from 12:30/1is-3ish.
You still go into bed for the night 6:30/7pm, and wake up 6:30/45am.
up at 6:30...with an 8oz bottle
9-12am play - very necessary to get out of the house during this time
12:30/1:00 pm nap
6:30 pm bath
7:00 pm 8oz bottle and bed
Health: Very healthy baby!
Crying: You do not like to be home for too long or you get very stir crazy. You don't like to play by yourself, and if mom or dad dares to leave the room you will let us have it!
Feeding: You're becoming a bit pickier which is killing me! You always go for the bread/carb product, but its tougher and tougher to get you to eat your veggies. I've gotten creative (sweet potato toast, black bean quesadillas, spinach smoothies), but its not always so easy!
Likes: You love pointing, birds, Roscoe, being outside, your hip-hip, walking, all of your new birthday toys, other kids, and your dada!
Dislikes: When we walk out of a room, not being paid attention to.
Milestones: You're a walker!!! And you really made your grandparents proud by starting to take your first steps in Chicago!
It honestly came out of nowhere too! You never really pushed around walkers, so I was thinking you would be a little bit on the later side of this milestone, but at 12mth2wks, you were off to the races!
You take about 20 steps in a row before you tumble, but you're doing awesome and you're so proud of yourself!
Besides walking, you've had a huge month. You're saying lots of "words"; mama, dada, roro, "ca" (for car), wow, uh-oh, and ya.
You learned how to pump your fist when we say "go, go,go", you give kisses on command, and you seem to comprehend a lot of what we say to you now!
Places You’ve Gone: We spent 3.5 weeks in Chicago and had an overnight in Iowa with your cousins.
Visitors: We saw lots and lots of friends and family this month!
Roscoe: You two are best of friends. When we would facetime Dad while we were in Chicago, you would LIGHT UP every time he showed you "Ro Ro". You love to play fetch and give him big kisses.
