You have four teeth on this day, but I think you are getting another! This month has been rough on you and I now realize why we had some sleep regression. Darn top teeth wanted to "go big or go home" and come in all at once. So far you have the right one all the way out, the left just behind, and the tooth next to your right top is trying to come through. Mommy won't lie, this makes her super sad to know this is just one more sign that proves the inevitable: you are growing up.
You have become quite the momma's AND daddy's boy this month, and your social anxiety has most definitely peaked. You cry at most unfamiliar faces, unless it's a cute young blonde. I try to tell you judging is not very nice but you don't seem to care. You will scowl, stare or cry at anybody you don't recognize. Mommy tends to get annoyed at family members who take it to heart and blow her off when she tries to explain your social developmental stage. Oh well.
You eat all finger foods now and have mastered the pincer grasp. Your meals look a little like this...
Breakfast: butter toast and strawberries
Lunch: turkey dog weiner, zucchini, corn, and peaches
Snack: puffs, craisins/raisins, watermelon slice
Dinner: whatever we are eating (tonight was barbeque chicken baked potato)
I have been pretty lax on the sippy cup with you as you don't take a paci and love to have your bottle before you lay down. But I've noticed you are starting to not want to rock anymore (yet you still throw a fit when I put you in your crib awake. NO MATTER HOW MANY DAYS I AM CONSISTENT!) So, I'm thinking we will switch one of your bottles to a sippy. Most likely it'll be your late morning bottle. I'm nervous about this!
You had been waking at 6am every morning for the past 2-3 weeks until this week. I moved your bedtime back to 7:45/8pm and you are sleeping until 7:00. This is MUCH better as mommy cannot function at 6am. And unless you want her to go back to teaching while you go to daycare, then you better get on board with the sleep-in train, mkay?
I love you so very much and am having a blast with you this month!! It's been nice to take a break from work and just focus on you and your sister and nothing else. I don't know why I've been so blessed to be chosen as your mommy. You absolute perfection in my eyes!
