Another month, another update!! He’s become quite a chatterbox lately, it’s amazing how fast he picks up on words these days. He’s finally starting to say his “m’s” a lot more!! Not quite saying mama but I’ll catch him saying the “m” sound to himself so that’s fine with me!! He’s gotten a lot more pickier with food so that’s really frustrating for me. He used to be a pretty good eater and now he’s changing and doesn’t have as big as an appetite as before! I’m trying to not get so frustrated and just go with the flow. But I can’t help that when he eats a lot, it makes me happy! He had a good checkup a week or so ago and he is 29 pounds and the doctor said he’s still big but not as big as before according to all the measurements! Looking back at old photos cracks me up because he was for sure a chunk a monk!! He’s getting his molars in too which is exciting! I’ve been waiting for these little teethies to come in. I can tell he doesn’t always feel 100% because he’s been fussier than normal lately. Again, I try to take deep breaths during the meltdowns. He throws things when he’s upset but I guess that’s normal also. I wasn’t sure if I had some sort of baby with anger issues already, haha. His love for trains, planes, and automobiles runs deep. He goes around saying “big truck” all day and playing with his hot wheels is his favorite thing to do. I keep having to tell Jesse to stop buying them all the time because we have so many already! I think he buys them because it brings him a lot of joy too, lol. Boys.
I went back to work and it’s going really well. I like being busy a couple of days a week, having somewhat my own identity. It’s for sure tiring at the end of each day but it feels nice. I think it’s good for my mental health and if I’m doing better than that just makes me a better mom!
This is a short update. I don’t have much to touch on. Thanksgiving is only a couple days away and I’m finally spending it with family from my moms side of the family. It’s been years since we’ve been together so I’m looking forward to it!
