Time flies! Ford has always been such a fun baby, but the past few months with him have been especially fun. He is now taking only one nap, so we have a lot more time during the day to be together. He is so busy, never stopping and he loves to eat. He is growing like crazy! And it seems like every day he is learning something new that he can’t wait to show us!
I am really loving this age, because William and Henry are back at school and that means I get two days a week with Ford only. It’s the best.
Ford weighs almost 25 pounds and is in the 97% for height.
Thankfully, Ford has no trouble going down for bed or naps. He’s the easiest one to get to sleep and is still sleeping right through the night.
Ford continues to have so much personality. He is so busy and into everything. We keep saying that he is trying to keep up with his older brothers – everything they do, he attempts!
He is always walking around with his lovey “bun bun” and now a baby doll too. He is still a thumb sucker and he gets so cuddly when he’s sleepy!
He loves playing chase, still dances all the time and sings “EIEIO”, “Row Row” and now “B-I-N-G-O” It is so cute! He points at everything, loves handing something to you and saying “here” and he climbs on everything!
The biggest change in Ford’s schedule is that he is now taking one nap a day. With that change, he normally wakes up around 8ish, nap is around 1 and bedtime around 7. On the days when he wakes up early or he seems to be tired, I’ll put him down for a morning cat nap. His schedule really just depends on the day!
I always take a slow, gradual weaning process. Ford is now down to just nursing in the morning and at night.
Ford is still a huge fan of eating anything and everything and not much has changed since his one year update. I know his food strike is coming, but right now he is loving food. He grew two inches in two months so he needs lots of energy for his growing body!
After much thoughtful consideration, we decided to go on our family trip to San Diego in August. We had the absolute best time. Ford was all about the sand and water and it was a huge change from our trip to San Diego when he was only 2 months old!
- Basically, running anywhere and everywhere. He’s even started to jump up and down!
