It’s Oct and toddler boy is 10 months previous! This age has been so exciting. He’s no more time just a blab, but can get all-around and really feels like portion of the household now. Day-to-day after operate I’ll engage in with him and really like on him since I know this time is fleeting and the subsequent matter I know, he’ll be 5 decades outdated. I unquestionably adore this age and want to soak it all in. His scent, his plump cheeks, his breath, his very small toes, it’s all so intoxicating. Yes, which is how significantly I want to take in him up everyday, ha!
We’re formally on a excellent agenda now that Harper is back again in college. We were truly ready to change up our times with our nanny, so it seriously feels like we’re in a fantastic flow. We’re currently undertaking 8am-3pm M-Th with our nanny. I’m even now solely breastfeeding, so I get people tiny times in the course of the day with Cam, which are my preferred. I must also notice, Cam enjoys our nanny, so it would make all of this so much simpler.

The growth and expansion in year a single is definitely crazy. I swear he was just a blab last 7 days, lol. Cam is formally crawling! I think it all occurred right when he turned 10 months. Minimal man is getting into every little thing and pulling up on nearly anything in sight. We have to rethink the residence mainly because it feels like we can not acquire our eyes off him for one 2nd. We have not child proofed everything nevertheless, actually. I feel we set tape on a couple retailers, but nothing else. Stay tuned to see what we conclusion up carrying out. Cam produced his pincer grasp, so he’s obtaining entertaining feeding himself. I just can’t fail to remember to point out all the yelling, pointing and babbling he’s doing. He’s receiving really vocal and it’s the sweetest point.
A notice on crawling. Not until eventually we produced a concerted hard work with ground time did Cam really start crawling. Tummy time and time on the flooring are certainly important for this to develop. Harper only definitely army crawled and it was afterwards proper prior to she walked, so it was not extensive. And now I know why – we did not devote time on the flooring. We didn’t dedicate the time with Cam both up right up until 8-9 months. After we did that, he received the cling of crawling. So, to any mamas out there attempting to get their little one to crawl, it’s all about being on the ground. Start off them from the beginning.
We are even now performing 2 naps/day. He’s been giving us 1 great nap and 1 limited nap. I was just speaking to our nanny and we both equally mentioned, maybe he’s just never heading to be a superior napper, lol. He sleeps very well at evening, can put himself to snooze, and all that, but naps are a struggle bus. We participate in with his awake time, we have him on the ground obtaining all his strength out, you title it and naps however are not dependable. I pointed out in my last month-to-month update, it is not that large of a deal due to the fact of his age and currently being able to be up and joyful, but even now.
We are nonetheless nursing 4x/day and possessing solids following the to start with 3 feedings. Cam’s been taking in much more range daily. We give him his Yumi purees, but we also give him what ever we’re feeding on – eggs, chicken, oatmeal, raviolis, pancakes, salmon, cheese, potatoes, and so forth. I’m officially the only plant-primarily based eater in our family these days. Cam created his pincer grasp, so he’s carrying out a superior occupation feeding himself with some foods.
We are amongst 3-3.5 hours of awake time (3 in the early morning and then gradually growing). I believe I’ve described this prior to, but if we want to get out of the property to do anything as a relatives, we like to go just after his first nap. That way we can all prep ourselves to get out of the home in the morning/though he naps and then after Cam wakes, I’ll feed him, and we’re prepared to go. This gives us the most time though we’re out right before we have to get home for his nap. We do our ideal to expend his awake time on the floor enjoying to seriously tire him out. Currently, we’ve found that a wander or car trip before his nap genuinely settles him down and he’ll go down simpler. So we’ll tire him out, feed him solids, and then do a wander or car experience (if we’re managing an errand or buying up Harper) suitable ahead of his nap.
Bedtime has been heading easily. Awake for 3.5 hrs, bath, pajamas, then nurse him in a loud place (to continue to keep him awake), say goodnight to Harper, and then I set him down awake. Ordinarily will take him no extra than 10 minutes just before he’s asleep. Once he began to crawl, there was a person night that he sat himself up in the center of the night and he was sitting down there whining/crying. We figured he’d lay himself down and go again to bed, but when Mike checked the observe an hour later, he was still sitting in the very same situation, lol. Mike went in and laid him down, he cried for a little bit, but then went back to rest. Immediately after that a single night time, he never did it all over again, lol.
