I should probably measure him and weigh him…
Poor second child…I’ve hardly written anything about him lately.
Breaking news: Augie is 33 inches and 25 pounds with a 19” head. Which means he’s in the 10-25%, and his head is 19” – the same as it was last year. Ummm…is that OK? I started Googling, but that’s never a good idea. I’ll just ask his pediatrician when we see him next month. Well, there’s one article that says the head doesn’t grow much after the soft spot closes, so maybe that’s OK that his head is still 19 inches.
ANYWAY, Augie is super active and curious.
He has 55 words, but he’s still not really talking. I mean, he says words, and he understands direction, but we can’t have a conversation.
He has 16 teeth.
He’s eating more and more food, and he’s really good with a spoon. His favorite foods are soup and ketchup. And oatmeal. And lately, ham.
He loves to copy his sister, Adelaide.
And, last but not least, we just stopped breastfeeding two days ago. I’d been weaning him for a while – we got down to feeding once at night – and two days ago, I cut off the bedtime feed.
He’s been doing really well so far. I mean, there were tantrums along the way, especially when I first cut out nursing sessions. And some really bad middle-of-the-night tantrums over the summer. But overall, he’s taken it pretty well.
For me, it’s been a good change. I’m happy to have more energy and happy to be a little less scatterbrained. Still, it’s bittersweet. He’s becoming a little boy.
