Haven't weighed him this month.
Other food has been a struggle lately. For about three weeks this month Fox was a really picky eater and would barely eat anything, to the point that I got really worried. I had read that appetite decreases when babies are teething and this was definitely the case with Fox. He wouldn’t even eat his favorite foods. Luckily, we all made it to the other side and he’s been doing much better now.
Sleeping:Like I mentioned, we had a couple of weeks of terrible sleep, but he went back to normal afterwards, sleeping from 7-7:30pm to 5:30-6am. Mornings have been killing us. He used to sleep much longer, but nowadays he barely sleeps longer than 5:30am. The problem is not that I’m tired, I’m up anyway, but I start work at 5am each morning (from home) and it definitely threw off my routine, but I’m hoping his sleep will improve again. We tried putting him down later and taped cardboard in front of his windows (Redneck Blackout Shades), but it hasn’t made a difference. Talking to my other Mom friends, it seems like almost all of the babies wake between 5-6 as well.
He also started to pet Cosie which is oh so cute. He is always so proud of himself when he does it and gets the biggest smile. Cosie will tolerate his not so gentle pets (still working on that) because Fox feeds him from his highchair tray! ;)
Fox loves to play hide and seek, it’s his favorite thing right now. He always hides in his fort (aka under the kitchen table) and we walk around it, asking where he is and when you look underneath, he laughs and laughs and then runs away. This game can go on forever, he loves it!
Fun things we did:
Fox loves to go out though, so it’s all good and Matthias enjoys taking him and we do too on the weekends or in the afternoons, when I’m off work.
We also had two weeks of swim classes this month (every day for two weeks), but that got old pretty fast and Fox hated it, but he enjoys playing in our pool when it’s just us.
We went to San Francisco and Sacramento for a week and spent a lot of time with family.
What we’re looking forward to:
We’re also hosting a 4th of July Crafty Playdate, where the babies (okok, toddlers) will help us make some fun 4th of July decorations/outfits…we’ll see how that one goes, but I can’t wait!
Lastly, we’re excited for some visitors in the next coming month! First, Matthias little sister (I think she’s 14) is visiting for two weeks from Denmark and then my friend Julia and her family from Tucson will spend a weekend with us…so fun!
