>Has one tiny little bottom tooth poking through. You can’t really see it but rub your finger over his gum and you’ll get poked. :)
>Chews everything in sight. Especially my face and hair.
>Can be pretty vocal at times. He still rarely cries, but sometimes he just likes to yell for the fun of it.
>Is still huge. 95th percentile, did I mention that?
>Has become very purposeful with his movements and grabbing. We really have to watch what we leave close by him.
>Loves food. Any kind.
>Still isn’t very close to crawling. He hasn’t even pushed up all the way yet. I think he just has so much weight to lift that it’s hard for him. :)
>Has a nickname – “Rocky.” Meredith came up with it for who knows what reason.
>Took a nap in the crib once. It was his first time ever to be in the crib at home.
>Am so happy about the kids’ new room, and now I need to tackle the prospect of getting them to sleep in their own beds at night.
>Have a difficult time holding Liam these days because of the intense hair-pulling that immediately happens.
>Worry about having enough breastmilk to send to daycare each day. I only have a few bags on reserve and lately I don’t seem to be keeping up.
>Am worn out from the past week and a half. We had a slow summer at work but things are definitely picking up and I’m feeling it, especially when I’m running the clinic alone. Add to that a sick husband and a dramatic toddler and I need a long nap.
>Have been “off” on my morning routine. The kids have been waking up early again (as in 5-5:15 a.m.) so I’m not getting much, if any, time alone. David is leaving for work an hour earlier due to traffic. It’s led to really hectic mornings and a feeling of chaos inside of me.
>Really look forward to getting a real camera. I’m feeling the limitations of my iPhone a lot these days.
>Think I want to do mostly handmade gifts for Christmas this year, so I need to start planning that now.
>Also need to plan for all the birthdays that happen in January, including David’s and Liam’s first!
Meredith has been calling him her baby lately. She’s either loving on him or pushing/hitting him. Sigh. But at least he’s learning to fight back in his own way:
