Can you believe Zander is 10 months old already. It is zooming past, we are now thinking about his 1st birthday, how to celebrate and what to buy him.
So here is our update;
Weaning is full established now 3 meals a day, he has a mixture of purée foods and also finger foods. He does not like pasta or anything that has tomato flavouring in it. He also does not like chocolate flavoured things. We tried him with both chocolate ice cream and chocolate flavoured custard and he wasn’t having any of that at all. He does like chicken, roast dinners (not jar ones) and will try just about anything.
Sleeping is a lot better now, he is still have 2 naps per day, and around the same time as before. His afternoon nap is shorter now he will only go for 1 hour maximum.
Bedtime is 7pm every night. He will play in his cot for about 10 minutes then fall asleep and wake in the morning between 6:30 and 7:30am.
Teething, my last update he still only had the two teeth but the top two were close to coming through. He now has 7 teeth. When the top two were coming through he was very cranky and was in quite a bit of pain. Some nights he would wake screaming. I was using Ambesol liquid and Dentinox teething gel, plus Calpol and Nurofen for kids if it got too bad. Then a friend recommended Teetha teething granules and they made things a lot better for him. Now they are through he is a much happier boy.
At almost 8 months old he was not sitting unaided for more than 2 minutes, he is now sitting perfectly on his own. He does not crawl, I did think he would when he started getting onto all fours and rocking but no he is a little bum shuffler and can move quite fast on that little bum of his. He has learnt that by getting up on all fours from laying down he can get himself to sit up.
He loves to stand up with me holding him. He can manage standing unaided for a few seconds but he is getting stronger by the day. His walker is definitely helping him with the strength in his legs.
Talking, he is still saying mum, dad and guy (Skye) and babbles on in baby language.
He lifts his arms when he wants to be picked up, and is so cheeky, if he is about to do something like bat the spoon away he grins or laughs just before he does it.
He can do pat a cake and also gives ‘5’ when asked.
He was due to go into his own bedroom two months ago but still hasn’t gone in there yet. Roger is going to decorate it first, he is going to have a Paw Patrol themed room and we are waiting on the mattress to come for the bed in his new room so if he has a bad night one of us can sleep in there with him.
A week ago Zander was measured and weighed, he was 78cm long and 24lb 4oz
So that is out update, we are currently deciding what to do to celebrate his first birthday and what to get him.
What did you get your baby for their first birthday? Did you have a party?
