I feel like he’s closer to a little boy than a baby now. He’s so attentive to everything around him and loves exploring. My little baby is growing up. He is keeping us on our toes, but we are loving it. He’s so full of joy and this happy positive energy. It’s hard to be sad around him.
We are so lucky to have such a happy and content baby. Really, the only time he cries is when he’s tired and when he won’t go to bed at night or in the car. (He cried the entire 2 hours home from DC yesterday, fun times)
I started my new job on May 1 and now work from home. It’s challenging but also perfect for me. The other week I was at the pool, breastfeeding Wyatt, while responding to work emails on my phone. What other job could I do that at?
It’s been a fun month for us. He’s so much fun!
Weight: 20 pounds and 6 ounces
Length: 28 inches.
Hair: light brown, although sometimes I swear it look blonde and then other days it’s almost red.
Nicknames: Wy, Wy-Wy, Mr. Man, Bink,
Likes: Doors (opening and closing them) air conditioning vents, photographs of people, books, music, dancing, crawling, exploring, eating, shaking things, balls, Mickey Mouse, dogs.
Dislikes: Sleeping in his crib. Getting dressed. Riding in the car for extended amounts of time.
Clothing and Diapers: 6-12 months clothing, size three diapers.
Sleep: He takes three naps a day, the longest one in the afternoon. Sleep at night is touch and go. We are desperately trying to transition him into his crib and are suffering with the crying it out method.
Feeding: Breastfed every three hours and eats three solids a day plus some puffs as snacks (but Maggie usually gets most of those!) He likes everything. But I think his favorites are butternut squash and blueberries.
Milestones: Army crawling everywhere. Standing up assisted. Recognizing music. Turning pages in books by himself. Kissing. Banging two objects together. Squeeling and becoming much more vocal.
Favorite Things: Photographs (he loves crawling around the house and looking up at all the photos everywhere and studying them) Board books, Mickey Mouse, Hot Dog song, singing, listening to music, balls, balloons, dogs, wagon rides, being outside.
What I want to remember:
How happy he is when I first see him in the morning.
How he smushes he face up against mine (it’s his way of kissing)
How proud he looks when he makes his way to a door and then shows me how he can open and close it.
The way he goes over to his bookshelf and pulls out all his books until he finds his favorite “Baby Faces Peekaboo”
The shrieking noise he makes when he wants us to laugh at him.
When he crawls over and grabs my ankles when I’m drying my hair or doing my make up.
Mother’s Day was very special. He was the perfect little gentleman at lunch and dinner.
Memorial Day weekend was a blast – traveled to Philly visiting family and my best friend. It was our first night away with him. He slept terribly and didn’t do well in the car, but otherwise it was fun…
