Beckham - 9 months

Baby Becks is nine months old today! Clint and I were thinking back last night about how we both felt like he was just born the other day! I thought time would go much slower being home and not working but it still seems to have gone by just as fast!

Measurements: Last weekend I had to take Beckham to Express Care because he was sick and he weighed 20.2 pounds. He grew so fast early on but he has definitely slowed down now. I just packed away all the 6-9 month sized clothes today and took out all the 9-12 month sizes. The one piece sleepers are a little big as I imagine some of the other clothes will be as well but the 9 month ones were too hard to button and zip! Many of his onesies were getting a little small too. He is still wearing a size 3 diaper although I'm not sure for how long because baby got back!

Milestones: He is still not crawling but I imagine it will be sometime soon. He scoots around everywhere and rolls back and forth. He can get himself to the sitting position if he is on his belly. He loves to stand! He stands with his little walker and his activity table but still loses his balance sometimes. I would love to add that he sleeps through the night butttttt he doesn't. womp womp.

Daily Schedule: He is mostly on a 2 nap schedule (one about 10am and one about 2pm) but if his 2nd nap is short then he takes a third one before dinner. He goes to bed beween 7:15 and 7:30 most nights. More times than not he wakes up around 10pm, 2am and 5 or 6am. Sometimes he wakes just once, sometimes just twice. There is kind of no pattern still. He had several good nights in a row and then he got a double ear infection so those good thoughts I had went out the window! Now that he is finally better, I am hoping we can get through the night before he turns 10 months old! It would be lovely! 

My little mischief maker!!

Beckham - 37 Weeks

Well, here we are 6 weeks later! I've fallen a bit behind keeping up here but that's life!

Likes: most foods (especially sweet potatoes, applesauce, cheerios, yogurt, and bananas), anything to do with Parker (he's obsessed with watching him, grabbing him, & playing with him), grabbing the spoon and making a gigantic mess, chewing, standing, baths

Dislikes: being left alone, sleeping some place new

What's New in the Last (several) Weeks: He is thisclose to crawling! He can scoot backwards and in circles and in the general direction he wants but on his belly. He can get up on his knees and rock back and forth pretty good but he hasn't put the knees in forward motion yet.

The last three nights he has slept pretty well. Two of the nights he slept from 7pm to after 2am...which ironically is how he slept from newborn til 4 months. So I am hopeful he is back to this routine and on his way to all night sleep because this momma needs it so bad! But, alas, I am prepared to still wake 3 times a night. Can't get my hopes up yet!

Talking about sleep...this baby is a good napper at least! He has almost fully switched to 2 naps a day now. He takes a 45 min-1 hour nap in the morning around 10am. Then he takes around a 1-2 hour nap around 1 or 2pm.

 I just love this cutie!

He loves bathtime!!

He liked it when I pushed him but as soon as Parker did, he was cracking up! Parker does everything better!

Parker changed Beckham's diaper all by himself!
