Weight: 15++ maybe even pushing 16 pounds? I won't get another official weigh in until 9 months!
Health: Little man has had a stuffy nose this past week. I've been putting the Nosefrida and sucker thing to good use. I don't know why it gives me so much pleasure to de-booger him, but it does! And he doesn't even put up a fight anymore. Sorry bud!
Sleep: Usually waking up once or twice a night. He's getting better about putting himself back to sleep, which is awesome. As I type this now, he's snoring in his carseat. So precious!
Social: We had some college friends in town this past weekend so Baby E got to show off his cuteness a bit more. Tahoe is a popular place in the winter, so it's great to have lots of visitors in town! :)
Diet: Breastmilk + formula is still making up most of his diet. We are trying to feed him 1-2 times a day. I need to get better about being more consistent about that. Since last week, we've tried prunes, bananas, berries! He's not a fan of berries...they're too tart for his palette right now. He acts like we just gave him a lemon! But he seemed to like the pears! And last night we gave him an Ella's Kitchen mixture of rice cereal, apricots and bananas and he LOVED it. Could be a new favorite. Oh and I've decided baby had a bad reaction to peas, because we gave him the prunes from a Plum Organics and he did just fine.
Clothes: Officially in 9 month jammies, but still rocking 3-6 month onesies and 6 month clothing otherwise.
Baby Gear Love: The jumperoo continues to be a favorite...along with any and all toys that he can put his mouth on. And we've finally removed the infant insert in his whale tub so he can sit. Also...the swing still gets used from time-to time and the other day we caught him reaching up to grab the birds. It was pretty dang cute!
Crying: Just at night time when he wakes up mid-sleep.
Likes: Rolling! Baby man rolls up a storm...you never know where you may find him once he's on the floor. And he still loves his bath time.
Postpartum: I signed up for a barre class every Saturday and it already feels great to get back into it! Also, I went to yoga with Jane last night, which was fun!
Milestones: I don't know if this is really a "milestone" per say but Ethan totally arches his back when we try to put him in his baby carrier. And he rolls and moves a ton in his crib. We find him most mornings sleeping on his tummy. And introducing fruit this past week...that was a big milestone!
