The Bald One.

 I can't even call him the fat baby anymore, he's grown so tall he dropped from 98% to 70% percentile on the weight chart. Sad day. His height is still in the 90's, but the tall baby just doesn't have the same ring to it, so The Bald One it is.....for now. 

He's been trying to walk for a while, but I wasn't ready so I'd 'gently' knock him down and tell him to stay a cute lil baby for just a little while longer. Well, the last month he's really started to fight authority and do what he damn well pleases. He will pitch a fit when you try to make him do something he doesn't want, typical for this age, but I may have forgotten all the joys that come with it :)

His fear of food has subsided a bit, but he still prefers breads, potatoes, and carbs to fruit. He hates hates hates anything squishy - bananas, avocado, berries, and yogurt. Except if it's mine - he will eat pretty much anything that comes off my plate when we are eating dinner. He's not a fan of milk or sippy cups, we are trying to switch him over, but it's slow going.

He loves to throw anything he can get his hands on, has a pretty good arm for a tiny person too. He's constantly tackled by his sister, I'm like 'back up off the baby Madison' hahhaha He's not big into climbing, but I'm very OK with that, I'm still traumatized from Madison attempting to launch herself off everything in the house.

He's extremely shy, hates pretty much everyone except those of us he see's every day. When we are out he either wants to be held or is clutching to my leg for dear life, he even is scared of other children. I know this is something he will grow out of, but I also know he's not getting the exposure to other children his own age like Madison did, so I have him signed up for preschool two days a week. Yes, it's preschool, not daycare for those of you wondering, although I'm not sure why it matters it's no secret both Oliver and I work full time, but he's watched by my MIL. The preschool is the same one Madison attended from 3-5 years old, it's 9am to 2pm, and they take children starting at 18 months. Holla! I'm excited for him to get some good playtime in starting in the Fall, I loved the teachers there so much.

He is the best sleeper ever, I literally take him to his room at 8pm, put on his Halo sleep sack, turn on the sound/light machine, make sure he has 27 binky's in his crib, kiss his 700 times, and don't hear a peep until around 8 the next morning. He will go down for another nap around 9:30 for 2 to 2.5 hours and take another nap sometime in the afternoon. 

We are still rear facing in the car seat and will stay that way until he's 2, he loves the car and just stares out the window, sometime he'll fall asleep, but not often probably because Madison is there singing really loudly, hahha. His favorite song is Uptown Funk, the starts jammin and clappin whenever he hears it. 

He's baby talkin' quite a bit, but mostly sticking to Mama :) That's my boy!
