Weight: 25+lbs and I can’t remember how tall he is. I feel like he’s a bit shorter than Riley was, but weighs more. He’s 98% on the scale for both.
What Charly is up to: Not yet walking. Loves music, clapping and dancing. Daddy is his favorite – he lights up when he sees him. Thinks Riley is cool, but doesn’t like that he takes stuff he’s playing with. Still hanging out in the Ergo. Took his first shopping cart ride! Says, “Ma-ma,” “more” and “hello/hi.” LOVES reading. He would have me read books to him all day if I could. Waves “bye” by opening and closing his fingers to his palm, normally behind my back if I’m holding him, after the person has walked away. Nods “yes” and “no” to almost any question. Loves to eat. Favorite foods are any kind of fruit, mac n cheese, peas, yogurt.
PostPartum: After weaning I’m starting to feel more like myself. Doing my yearly Whole 30 in October. Trying to find the motivation to work out more.
Baby Gear: Ergo. $5 walker from the thrift store – which he loves playing with more than walking with. Play food. High Chair. Britax Marathon Convertible Car Seat. Size 4 diapers. 18mo,24mo, 2T Clothing. Fresh Picked Moccasins. His baby swing on his birthday swing set.
Thoughts: We love our little Charly Bear so much. His personality is so easy going and laid back – a lot like Dad. He’s happy and content much of the time, and I’m looking forward to him walking and really playing with Riley. I hope they grow to be really great friends. Love you, Char – happy first.
