Firsts: High school football game, wedding (Hannah and Aaron), sitting in the exersaucer, runny/stuffy nose, night without Daddy, then Mommy (separate trips).
News Headlines: Government shutdown
Favorite Toy/Activity: Your floor gym and Winnie the Pooh on your bouncy seat
Mommy’s Favorite: Your crazy big smiles that light up your whole face
Daddy’s Favorite: The way you respond to us with smiles and laughs
Lily’s Favorite: Reading to you
Milestones: YOU SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT, as in, you don’t wake up at all between the hours of 9ish to 6ish (therefore, no other milestone matters), you don’t refuse naps in your bed anymore, you can hold your head up well enough to spend about 15 minutes in your exersaucer, you are responding to us with laugh/smiles, 3-6 month clothes, size 2 diapers (although you can still wear size 1, some brands in size 2 are too big), you are growing out of your clothes in length (despite what people say about your chunkiness, you are growing taller faster than you are gaining weight)
Weight/Length: No clue where to even begin guessing. You see Dr. B in November.
Like Mommy: You love to sing (well, I don’t know if you like to sing, but you always smile when I sing)
Like Daddy: Due to your stuffy nose this month, I think you may have your daddy’s allergies.
Like Big Sister: You talk to Winnie the Pooh on your bouncy seat
Best Memory: Laying on the porch with you and your sister, doing nothing but enjoying the fall weather
Biggest Challenge: None this month; you are an easy going baby and you rarely fuss for reasons other than being hungry/tired/need a diaper change
How We Spend the Day: Each day is different. You go to school two days a week, stay home/run errands two days a week, and hang out with just me while Lily is at school one day a week. You usually eat between 6:00-7:00 in the morning. You stay awake for about 1 1/2 hours before your first morning nap. You eat every 3-4 hours and in between feedings you play and sleep. You take your last bottle sometime between 8:00-10:00 then we put you to bed.
Nicknames: Little Man, Buddy, 75
Funniest Moment: You talk A LOT and it’s always funny to hear you having a conversation with the most random things…like the ceiling fan or the wall.
How We Celebrated: Daddy was out of town and Lily wasn’t feeling well, so we didn’t even leave the house today. Sorry, Buddy! (Like you knew any different)
