Weight: Not sure, she won't get weighed until her 4m appointment.
Height: Again, not sure, but she's getting long!
Size: 0-3m clothes, size 1 diaper.
Hair: Still crazy! Getting lighter and longer though. Can wear small bows now :)
Teeth: Zero, but she's starting to drool. a lot. So did Tyson, but he didn't get teeth until almost 6m.
Sleeping: She's doing great! We've got a bedtime routine down now. She goes to sleep between 8-8:30pm and wakes up around 5am. She takes a bottle and goes back to sleep until 7 or 8am. She's still sleeping in our room in the rock and play sleeper. I'm not sure when we'll move her to her room. I'm just not ready yet.
During the day, she naps intermittently although her naps are getting shorter while her awake periods are getting longer.
Eating: Six 4oz bottles of Alimentum throughout the day.
Movement: Still wiggly! Always kicking her legs if she's playing on her back.
Milestones: Can support her upper body on her forearms during tummy time. Smiles all the time. Holds her head up very well.
Favorite toys/activities: Chattering and smiling, watching her big brother, playing in her activity gym, riding in the stroller, baths.
Last Friday, we took a trip to the Indiana State Fair! We got there just in time to enjoy the daily parade. Tyson was pretty impressed with all of the vintage tractors.
We saw goats, pigs, cows and a few horses.
And of course, we sampled the food. Ribeye sandwiches for me and Ryan and glass of milk from the Dairy Barn for our picky eater. Hey Tyson, you have some milk on your cheek...
Unfortunately, the very next evening, tragedy struck at the Fair. Ryan's cousin, Hillery, was one of the injured. She spent the night in the hospital, went home Sunday afternoon and was back to the hospital yesterday. She's back at home recovering now and our thoughts and prayers are with her as well as her good friend who is still in the hospital with serious injuries.
Weight: Somewhere around 33lbs based on our home scale, which only measures to the half pound.
Height: Officially 3 feet tall.
Size: 2T clothes, size 5 diaper, size 7, maybe 8 shoe. I really need to get him measured before it's time to buy real shoes again. He's been living in Crocs this summer.
Hair: Blonde and cute. I think I may let it grow for a while, but who knows.
Teeth: Still 18 and still waiting on the last two 2 year molars to come through. Sleeping: For as many changes as he's endured recently, I'd say his sleep is still great. Since we moved him to a big boy bed, it's a little more challenging to get him to sleep on time for naps and bedtime. His newfound freedom has him roaming his room when he's not ready to sleep. For the most part, he sleeps in his bed, but we've found him sleeping on the floor behind his door and under the chair in his room. Eating: Seems to be on a fruit strike, which is bad news for us since he will not eat a single vegetable. I used at be able to count on him to at least eat fruit. But, he did start eating chicken nuggets this month...any new food is a huge victory for this child that refuses to even TRY anything new.
Movement: He can go almost up the entire flight of stairs without holding on to anything :) He used to just crawl up on his hands and knees.
Milestones: Started sleeping in a big boy bed. Being nicer to his baby sister. Had his first movie night at home with mama and daddy and popcorn. He *loved* the popcorn. Yes, my kid is over 2 and just had popcorn for the first time. I was scared of him choking on it!
Favorite toys/activities: Playing at the park or in the backyard, going on car and boat rides,
Dislikes: Transitioning from one activity or person to the next, bedtime and naptime, rinsing his hair in the bathtub, timeouts.
Words: He's started asking lots of questions..."what's that?" is what we hear over and over and over again. He's funny. I know toddlers say funny stuff, but he can entertain for hours!
I am a 30-something first time Mom and have been married since November 2003 to my wonderful husband. Our son, Tyson was born in May 2009. I'm currently working part-time as an attorney and loving every minute of our sweet little boy.
One of my 2010 New Year's Resolutions is to be a better photographer, so I'm taking at least one photo each day, mostly of Tyson.
