This month I have seen the most growth from this kid, probably what made me so emotional.
-On Sept. 12 or 13 we retired the snaggle tooth jokes because he now has a nice pair on the bottom. He’s a pretty good teeth, when the tooth is actually cutting through, but the two weeks leading up to it just avoid him. It’s in your best interest.
One morning I woke up to a very whiney baby and when I finally looked at him the blanket was stuck on his head. Then he was just a cute little sleeper, and third, sad baby when we first moved in was really sick and needed a humidifier.-When we moved into our new house Nixon spent one night in our room, and then he was officially kicked out, and ever since has been sleeping through the night. Right before we moved he went from waking up once a night to twice and it was awful. Now I put him down at 8 and he sleeps until 7-8. Again with the mixed feelings because I still wake up and check on him once or twice a night and now he’s waking up an hour and a half earlier than I’m used to. Needless to say, I’m very very very unpleasant in the mornings/when Jim leaves for work. Sooooooooooooorry, Girl needs her sleep.
His FAVORITE toy is the boogie getter. Why? I have no idea, but he loves it.-Nixon has become a professional sitter-upper, and he sure loves to sit in front of the mirror. He knows he’s cute, and I honestly think that he believes he’s talking to a friend. He will sit for a good 45 minutes and play with toys and squeal. Cutest. Thing. Ever. And it makes putting on make up or doing my hair a lot more fun.
Everything goes straight to his mouth, belt, bottle, toys. Side note: he will only drink a bottle with water, and not milk. But mostly he just loves to chew on it.-He’s become really good at putting himself to sleep. This has been so hard for me! I hate that he doesn’t need me so much, but I hate even more that I am having a problem with it! If I can’t nurse him to sleep I will just lay him in his crib, hand him his blanket, he will grab it and rub his face, whine maybe 2ish minutes and then play and roll around until he falls asleep (run on sentence much?) Total time? About 15 minutes. I should be jumping for joy, and don’t get me wrong, I am so so so so so happy I don’t have to listen to him scream, but he was ready way before I was and that has been hard. I mean sometimes he doesn’t even cry! Someone slap some sense into me, This momma is EMOTIONAL and mercy it’s annoying.
Like I said, this was the biggest month so far. And Sheeesh, when did I become the baby?
And because this is our favorite video ever…..
