eleven months old

Tomorrow, our dear sweet Wilder will be 11 months old.

Here are some great things that he accomplished over the last 30 days:

He now claps! My oh my it is the sweetest thing ever. He looks at his hands, keep one perfectly still, and brings the other one to it again and again.

He nods his head yes! He also says “yeah.”

He walks everywhere with his walker and push cart. He’s so strong as well! Remy will sit in the wooden stroller and Wilder pushes her around the house.

He thinks everything is funny. He has honestly only ever had a few grumpy days in his entire life and those were when he was sick. Other than that, he is always sweet and smiling.

He can load utensils with food.

He loves to feed other people, and often feeds us.

He still has ZERO teeth, but we see those little bumps coming through. I think this will be the month that he finally gets some. (Watch out, nipples!)

One more month until he is a year old … Time, you thief.

ten months old

Our Wilder is now 10 months old! This was a month of many, many new things for him.

Wilder saw the ocean! And mountains! Plus two new provinces! We got out of our prairie routine and took a 2-week vacation to BC where we mostly stayed with family. There, Wilder saw landscapes that he has never seen before. I will be very excited to share that with him when he is old enough to understand.

He now points to objects. He also gives high fives. It’s the cutest dang thing.

He says “mama” on repeat. I swear he also says “hey dad” sometimes as well.

He is constantly standing with support and walks along furniture.

He is still breastfed but is beginning to not want it as much. He now only wakes once or twice during the night, and nurses for just a few minutes. He is growing up too quickly!

Only 2 more months until he is a toddler. My mama heart just isn’t ready.

nine months old

My darling son is now 9 months old. 9 months (minus 1 day) of carrying him inside of me, and 9 months (plus 4 days) of holding him on the outside.

Wilder had a big month of milestones. Here are some of them:

HE LEARNED TO CRAWL! Last month I thought that it could happen any day, and it did at 8.5 months exactly. He finally crawled on the day that Bridget passed away, sadly. He has certainly been keeping us busy ever since.

In addition to crawling, he can now pull himself up to a standing position. By using anything that gives him support, he hoists his booty off of the ground and stands up, then gently sits back down again.

He waves hello and goodbye! It is the cutest thing ever, and something that I don’t think Remy ever did. The brat. He loves waving and gets excited when you clap and cheer him on.

Unfortunately, he became pretty ill with a high fever for 3 days, which inevitably turned into roseola. He sported full-body rash for 2 more days after that, and only started to feel better on day 6. Remy had roseola at 10 months. It’s awful.

I can only imagine what next month will bring. Fingers crossed he gets his first tooth or two!

eight months old

Wilder is eight months old today! Here are some recent developments in his little world.

He is mastering feeding himself finger food. From large rice cakes to tiny peas, he quite easily brings the food from the table to his hands to his mouth. In actuality, he prefers food that hasn’t been blended in our blender!

He loves to play ball with Remy. They sit on the floor across from one another rolling a ball back and forth. I posted a picture of them doing this on Instagram the other day. I also have a video of Remy doing it when she was around the same age.

He is also on the verge of crawling. When he is seated, he leans forward and puts his weight on his hands, rocking back and forth. If only he would swing his legs under and then go! He does the backwards crawl that Remy did, though. Pushing himself across rooms, and usually getting trapped under furniture.

Eight months. How is it possible that the time is passing this quickly?

seven months old

Hello Tuesday readers! (I had intended on publishing this yesterday, but between our eventful week last week and just returning from a last minute getaway, I had to delay this post until today.)

Wilder is now 7 months old. 

Over the last month he has gone from three naps a day to now only two. He also no longer co-sleeps, preferring to sleep alone in his crib instead. This gives us all much more restful nights. 

Wilder eats a variety of fruits, vegetables, and meat. His absolute favourite is ham. 

He has said “mama” and loves to shake his head “no” when he doesn’t want something. He also has turned into the biggest hugger, often giving me several throughout the day.

He is growing up so quickly, it’s almost too hard to believe.

I love him I love him I love him.
