Weight: I think he’s put on some weight in the past few weeks, thinking maybe around 20lb? He’s eating like a champ, anything and everything!
What Charly is up to: Crawling! Everywhere! He’s pulling up to his knees. Loves to “talk” and eat everything – including the carpet at Aunt Leslie’s house. He loves Betsy, not sure the feeling it mutual. His big brother is his favorite person, and he loves any time Riley looks at him. He’s learning the signs for “more” and “all done.” And will repeat the sounds for some words, like if you say “more” he says “mo-mo” or “bath” is “ba-ba.”
PostPartum: Hormones. Moving. So many emotions. I’m holding it together pretty well, but I’ve for sure had more “off” days than my normal. But, acknowledging that I’m anxious or irritated is normally enough to get the feeling to pass. I’m trying to eat well, and I look forward to finding our new routine in Flagstaff.
Baby Gear: Ergo 360. Pack N Play w/ crib mattress. Sound Machine. Balls. Size 3 diapers. Size 18 – 24 mo clothing. Kitchen tools. Travel high chair.
Thoughts: It’s been a crazy month, but it’s also been really great. We’ve had some nice time together as a family. And the boys are handling the changes really well. It’s also been fun to explore new areas and towns. Finding fun parks. Thinking about doing some mommy + me classes when we get to Flagstaff. Riley and I did a music class around this time that was really fun – I think Charly would like that too!
