*You are wearing 6-12/9-12 months clothes, depending on the brand. Although you are so tall that some of them are getting too short, so Mommy will probably have to pull out the 18 month sizes soon. Wow!
*You sleep through the night from 7 pm until 7:30 or 8 am, straight through. Mommy is so happy!
*You are just about crawling now. You’ve been getting up on your hands and knees and rocking back and forth for a few weeks, but this past week, you have started going forward, just a little bit! Mommy thinks you will be full out crawling within the next week or two, once you realize that you can actually go!
(Hmmm… maybe Daddy should take a hint from this and put another door on the tv stand that your big brother broke, so you don’t mess with his Wii, DVD player, and all the other fun stuff under there!*see Mommy’s other post for the story behind that!)
*You roll over both ways all the time now.
*You are starting to babble more. Mommy thinks your first word is “Dada,” although it hasn’t been quite obvious enough that Mommy will announce it yet. (Or maybe she just did…)
*You just got your first tooth, and Mommy thinks the second one is just about through too. You were pretty cranky for the last 10 days so Mommy is happy they’re finally through!
*You are not eating a lot of solids, due to your food sensitivities, but Mommy has gradually been adding a couple of things in and you seem to be doing okay. Right now, you eat a whole mashed-up avocado every day, along with a little applesauce to mix your Prevacid in. You LOVE it. You’ve also had a few cheerios, with no reaction, this past week, so Mommy is cautiously hopeful.
*You love to smile and laugh at your big brother and sister. You also think the funniest thing is a brown box that Nathan kicks around. You laugh harder at that, than anything else. (Go figure!)
*Your hair is growing in now! Your big sister announced very excitedly the other day “Mommy, Joshua has HAIR now! Wow!” It seems to be a dark blonde color so far.
*You LOVE to grab your toes every chance you get, especially when you’re getting your diaper changed.
*You love to hold things, like crackers. You don’t eat them, you just hold them and are so happy about it.
