Being outside is still his favorite thing. We take lots of walks to the library and park near our house and he especially loves swinging. He still loves Thomas the Train and hums along when the theme song comes on. He gives me this look like "hey, I know this song, don't you?" He is just the sweetest and smartest baby ever, but I'm not biased at all.
Weight: 20 pounds
Height: 28 inches
Size Clothes: 12 month outfits are still a little big so he's still in 9-12 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
Sleeping: VICTORY! This month after Aiden got a cold and reverted back to wanting me to feed him every few hours I finally said enough and looked into sleep training. In the previous months I had taken small steps like creating a bed time routine and giving him a lovey to sleep with and those things all helped, but Aiden was still not sleeping for more than 5-6 hours a night consistently and it was taking me about about an hour to get him to bed each night. I still didn't like the idea of having him cry it out so I decided on a mix between the Ferber Method and the Pantley Method and after night number 1, Aiden realized he liked to sleep and slept from 7:30-5. The next night was easier and better and he slept longer and these last few weeks have been amazing in the sleep department. Sleep training worked and I am a new woman. Now someone please tell me why I waited so long!!!!
Eating: He's eating 3 meals a day and is eating lots of big boy food, but still no honey, strawberries, peanut butter, tomatoes, etc. Just trying to put lots of healthy clean goodness in his body. His favorites right now are spaghetti, apples, and a pumpkin-apple quinoa I've been making lately.
Random stuff only parents want to know:
Nicknames: Pumpkin, Beebo, Baby hunny, little man.
Likes: Signing "more," apples and bananas, saying hiiiiii to his kitties, walking behind his push toy, being read to.
Dislikes: Being overtired, when Mama has to work.
