Here you are, three quarters of an entire year old! Your dad and I can't believe it. You are changing right before our eyes, learning something new every day. Currently, your favourite thing to do is walk. And walk, and walk, and walk. When you get in this mind set and we try to sit you down or put you on your tummy so you can army crawl, you get very upset.
I swear, Cash is the most inconsistent baby ever, when it comes to sleep. We are so up and down with it!!! Right now, on a good day he'll only wake up two to three times during the night. On a bad day, it's anywhere from every 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. I'm not a fan of those nights. We went through an entire week where he was waking up at 5 am for the morning, wouldn't fall back to sleep, and would just cry and cry and cry if we left him alone in the crib. That was rough.
I feel like I shouldn't even mention this, in fear of jinxing it, but..
Napping has been going really well. 95% of the time he'll nap a solid 1.5-2 hours in the morning. And if we're home, he'll usually have a 1 hour nap in the afternoon.
We have teeth! His first tooth - bottom left-central - cut through on May 17, with the right-central following just a couple days later. A couple weeks ago, he began to nip once he got bored breastfeeding. A friend, who received advice from a lactation consultant, said that when he does that, tug on his ear lobe and end the nursing session immediately.. don't make a loud noise or say anything else to them. A lot of babies associate their ears with their mouths/teeth... many tug on their ears while teething. So by tugging on their ear, you're letting them know that biting while nursing is not okay. He got the hint so far.
As mentioned, all he wants to do is walk around.
Still loves meat! And a lot of red foods... red peppers, strawberries, watermelon. Really likes avocado. Oh, and zucchini.
There's nothing that he actually doesn't like!
