Oh my big boy, my HUGE kid. Such the opposite in size to your brother but so much the alike in personality. I’m guessing you are tipping the scale close to 20 pounds now, your brother didn’t reach this milestone until 14 months. You are tall too; almost outgrown your 6-9 month clothes (I broke out the 6-12 mos. bin today). You aren’t doing to many new things this month, just mastering the skills. You are rolling over more now (in fact as I write this I just looked down to see you had wiggled your way about 3 feet to me and flipped to your belly). You are starting to actually enjoy food. You yell at your dad and me if we take your spoon away, but get mad when there is nothing left on it. You are sitting up like a champ, although mom still is close by in case you reach too far for a toy and plop over. I can you will be pulling up and crawling in no time. You always want to be standing or sitting. Gotta see the world I guess.
You are a quiet kid. Unless you are hungry, tired, or need a diaper change you rarely cry. You nap fairly well (2-3 naps a day, 2 short and 1 2 hour nap). Nighttime we could work on a bit. You still wake up to eat twice during the night, but thankfully MOST mornings sleep until close to 7, I’ll take it. And check out those faces. When you get excited you screech just like your brother did and wave your arms frantically up and down. We call it the pterodactyl scream.
And boy do you LOVE your brother. You really do. And he loves you so much too. I mean seriously look at that bromance happening. It’s all in the eyes and smile babe. Your big bro gives you kisses, hugs, and always says, “good morning Emerson”. You two break my heart daily. I can’t wait to see your bond as brothers grow.
