Diapers: Size 3 (You are wearing 2 diapers at night!)
Sleep: My little perfect sleeper, you are confusing night and day, I'm afraid. You are no longer swaddled at all, but you are sleeping in the Baby Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit, which has been a great transition for you (and it adds an extra layer of warmth). You have been waking up 3-5 times a night, but that has gone down to 2-3 much shorter periods of time. Some nights, you go right back to sleep after crying for a few minutes, but other nights, you cry until we feed you...I know you are growing, but I don't want to create a bad habit!
Health: You still have just 2 teeth, but are a drooling machine...I wonder when more will come! You had your first bad cold over Christmas...you were coughing with a really stuffy nose, but never had a fever, thankfully. Your cough was so bad, though, that it made you throw up a couple of times. :( You are better now, thankfully! You are still taking acid reflux medicine in the morning, and we are still applying the steroid cream to your eczema every few days.
Social: What a social month for you!! Daddy threw me a surprise 30th birthday party, and you were part of it!! You kept hearing the noise upstairs, so you didn't want to sleep that night. ;) You also had lots of Christmas celebrations and did such a good job! You love people, but you don't love when strangers hold you. You get this really scared look on your face and search around for me or Daddy.
Food: You are still taking Alimentum in your bottles 5 times a day (6-8 ounces) and eating every vegetable and fruit you can! You are still not a fan of peas, but you love green beans, squash, sweet potato, carrots, pears, peaches, apples and bananas! We just bought some chicken in chicken broth (that looks disgusting), that we tried with you a couple of nights, but you are not a fan! It may be the texture of the taste, but either way, we have to sneak it in with your vegetable!
Toys: You got so many new toys for Christmas that light up, make noise and move, and you cannot get enough of them!!
Milestones: You are sitting!! Over Christmas vacation, you really transitioned into a sitter and can sit by yourself for a long time....you still topple over sometimes, but other times, you sit for 10+ minutes! You are also rolling over like crazy (especially when we are changing you or getting you dressed) and grab onto everything. Every day seems like a new milestone. :)
Clothes: You are wearing 3-6 month pants, 6-9 month onesies and 9 month pajamas. Your growing is slowing down a bit, but you are still right on track!
Personality: You love to smile and laugh...even at 3 am!! We are trying to practice different tones to convey different messages, but when you smile, it makes me smile and ruins my plan. ;) We just started playing Peek-A-Boo and it makes you crack up!! You are also extremely ticklish and love to have your cheeks squished. You are quite the character during meal times...we never know what we will get! Your legs also never stop moving...we are starting swimming lessons in February, and I can't wait!
Hands in the mouth :)
Someone was more interested in the sticker than the camera!
Always rolling over!
This is your face that you make when you're trying to sit up...so close!
My sweet, sweet baby...
Momma loves you, Cam!! You continue to brighten our days (and even our nights) and have brought more joy to our lives than imaginable. I totally understand when people say they are in love with their children...I can't get enough of your sweet face and can't stop myself from covering you in kisses everyday!!
