Clothes: Mostly 9mos, some 9-12mos
Eating: Mostly breastfeeding still, we've tried feeding him solids for about a month. He's not the biggest fan yet.
Sleeping: Elliott is doing great in that department. With the exception of a few nights, he's been sleeping through the night since about 3 months. Fingers crossed we keep this up!
Milestones: He reaches for anything he puts his mind to. Mostly for our cell phones and the remote control because he knows we won't let him chew on them. It is so funny how much restraint and resistance he has to fight through to "get" to whatever he's reaching for. It's crazy, it's like he's trying to crawl up and over my shoulder if he sees something that he wants and I'm holding him. Elliott's been rolling all over the place for about a month now. He's so quick! He also started army crawling (low crawling). It's so funny to watch him drag himself around the floor. If he sees something he wants, he'll make sure he gets there one way or another. He's definitely into everything and I know it'll only get worse haha.
Gear: Anything he can put into his mouth! All toys that rattle, light up or make noise.
Fun things: Elliott is such a smiling, laughing, happy baby! Unless he's hungry or tired, you can find him rolling around on the floor with his toys. He loves his freedom but he also loves to make sure you aren't too far away. I love that he notices when I walk out of the room, even though it breaks my heart to hear him get upset.
Elliott and I are still going to Stroller Strides daily. We're also running most days in effort to train for a half marathon. So we're getting a lot of use out of our BOB. Stroller Strides has saved my sanity! Truly, it has been such a blessing to meet all of the women that are involved with our group. Elliott and I both look forward to waking up every morning and going. I'm so lucky to live in a place that the weather is so nice this time of the year.
I'm so excited for the holidays! Our tree is up, our stockings are on their way, Christmas carols have been playing in the car for over a month. It is my absolute favorite time of the year and I am loving all the holiday outfits that I'm getting to dress Elliott in. I just get so emotional thinking about how lucky we are to have Elliott in our lives. I've dreamed about spending these first holidays with a baby and I just can't believe that the time has finally come.
Thanks for reading! Sorry for all the randomness--ha.
