Fox | 14 Month Update

We'll find out at his check up next month.

We'll find out at his check up next month.

Grateful for his health! 

Big Honey, Bubba, Schatzi, Bubbles, Mr. Fox, Foxy, Pumpkin, Poodle

Still picky as ever! I always worry about what he is eating and how much, it never ends. Someone told me that babies won’t starve themselves and hearing that other moms have similar struggles with their kids, makes me feel a little better. His favorites this month were blueberries, cherries, grapes, waffles, applesauce, bread with cream cheese, cheese and fish sticks.   

No new teeth this month, still at 12 teeth total.   

Pretty much the same as last month. He’s been sleeping from about 7:30pm until 5:30am. His naps are usually 3 hours, but there were quite a few days this month, where he slept 4 hours (growth spurt maybe?). I’m grateful that he’s such a good sleeper, after we struggled for the first 9 months. 

 That's the best picture I got of him...lol!

Size 4

12-18 months

This boy definitely knows what he wants and what he doesn’t want. He is stubborn like his Mama and recently started to throw tantrums when he doesn’t get what he wants.

He has also been super attached to me and cries every time I leave the room. He acts shy sometimes, especially when we’re in a group class like gymboree. He loves to give kisses to his stuffed animals and is so sweet to them. We love this age, he’s so fun!

Dog, Cat, More, Ball, Danke (the german word for Thank you), Done

Music and dancing (his favorite song is “Hoppe Hoppe Reiter” – german song), being outside, other babies and children, sleeping on his side and stomach, Cosie, bath time (only when we allow him to stand up in the bath tub), swimming, having his mommies attention, watching videos of himself, baby puffs, hummus, smoothies, yoghurt melts and any kind of carbs, cell phones and remotes, walking, playing peek-a-boo, Roomba (vacuum robot), his stuffed animals, shaking his head (like he’s saying “no, no, no”), opening cabinets and drawers, his play kitchen, looking at pictures of Katie, me and himself on our picture wall, toy lawn mower, our vacuum cleaner, Baseball bats, Watering cans, riding and sitting in his cozy coupe, being independent, steps/stairs, drinking out of a straw, the Children’s Museum , the Aquarium, his german Bauernhof (Farm) book (thank you Alison and Sabrina), playing hide and seek under our kitchen table, when his Mommies come home from work, Open Play at Gymboree, Flowers (he asks to smell them), helping putting the laundry in the washer or dryer, reading books

When we take something away from him, changing his diaper or getting dressed (basically anything where he is restrained), car rides, most food, kisses from our dog Cosie (I don’t blame him, he never quits!), when we leave in the morning, being held, Grass

Fun things we did: 
This boy is still really busy while we’re at work: Story Hours at the Library, Baby Dance, Children’s Museum, Aquarium, Gymboree, Play Dates, Splash Pads…you name it, he’s doing it.

Our friends visited from Tucson for a weekend and Fox had a lot of fun playing with their two kids. We also had a few first birthday parties to attend and had so much fun!

Fox celebrated his second 4th of July with his grandparents and aunt and uncle (and his mommies of course) and held a sparkler for the first time. He also invited his baby friends for a 4th of July Craft playdate at our house, where the babies created some cute patriotic outfits!

Matthias sister Frida visited for two weeks and Fox just adored her, he was so sad when she left. Lucky for him, she’s coming back in October!

He’s learning so much these days. He understands a lot of things, especially when I tell him in german  (Katie always says that he understands more German than English, which I think is also true, but only because Katie speaks german as well when she knows the german word or sentence). He also started to climb this month…we’re in trouble soon!

What we’re looking forward to:
Our trip to Germany where Fox will meet a lot of his relatives for the first time!
