Well this month Bubbas vocabulary has been busy expanding, he chatters alot more now.. and yup you guessed it he said his first word. MAMAMAMA he has got that one down for sure.. says it all day long if I am just too far away.. :p
He finally rolled over shortly after he turned 6 months he was playing on the floor right before bed I was changing him and got up to grab some jammies (he was nakie of course so I had to take a picture after I dressed him) October 24th 2012
He still much prefers sitting and standing & hates to be on the floor on his stomach. He will tolerate the Jumperoo for about 20 mins then he is over it.
He is pretty happy most the time and very easy going. He really likes to play on the floor with Caiden and just dig through the toys.. His favorite toys right now are still his sophie teether, this ugly elephant thing, moms iphone cover, and the remote he just jumps for when he sees it.. LOL
Bubba still loves breastfeeding and I dont see him stopping anytime soon. He pretty much requires to be nursed to sleep for naps and bed and that is fine with me right now.. Much easier & takes less time than trying to rock him to sleep.. Its funny to think back when Boo Boo was this age we were so over night wakings we were starting to CIO with him.. but the difference between them is huge. Caiden was waking up ever 2-3 hours at night at 7 months still whereas Connor only wakes up 1-2x a night between 9pm & 7am and we didnt co-sleep with Caiden and we do with Connor most the time. But that is going to change once we get moved into the new house. I want to get Con sleeping in his own bedroom at night.
Heres his 7 month routine:
7-745 wake up & playtime
10-1045 wake up, nurse play till lunch
12:00 pick up cade
1:30 Nurse & Naptime Connor
145 Caiden naptime
4:00 Boys get up, playtime till dinner
630 Nurse & short nap Connor
830 Get ready for bed, PJs books & bed for both boys
9pm Nurse, Bed Connor
We took a fun trip to Yosemite this month for a couple days and both the boys had a blast hiking and swimming at the hotel. Caiden is still taking about how much fun he had hiking the rocks and throwing snowballs at dada.. LOL. But we did get car sick a couple days going into the park bc the road is so winedy, that wasnt fun!
Also this month was Halloween, the boys had a blast trickortreating and Caiden was Wilson from chuggington and Connor was a chunky monkey.It was 60 degrees and was perfect weather for it. Caiden had a party at school and he was the only one dressed as a train. He had so much fun decorating his pumpkin and cookie. This was the first year Caiden was excited for halloween to come, everytime someone would mention halloween, he would say I be Wilson for halloween! lol it was cute!
Our road trip back to MN should be interesting, hopefully the boys behave and do ok in the car that long. We plan on stopping in Flagstaff the first night and then going to the grand canyon the next day then driving to texas the next night then stopping in MO on Caidens birthday our hotel has a water park and we are meeting some friends there to celebrate his birthday then the last day we should make it to MN!
I have been busy putting together a bunch of things to keep them entertained, some movies, games, and toys. Hope it works .. Eeek
I will recap about our trip when we get to MN.. If we make it.. lol jk
