    Size/Percentile: As of 10/14/14
    • Weight: 12 pounds 5.5 oz (10th)
    • Height: 24.25 inches (33rd)
    • Head Circumference: 16.46 inches (79th)

    Typical Daily Schedule: 
    My schedule is about the same as last month. I sleep about 11 hours at night (10pm-9am), waking up twice to eat (3:30 and 7 am). Then I hang out with Mom for the day. I usually nap for a few hours in the early afternoon and then wake up in time to see Dad get home. I may or may not take another nap in the evening, but sometimes I just snuggle instead. I would like to eat from about 6:30 to 9 pm straight, but instead Mom feeds me around 7 and then Dad gives me a bottle of formula at 8. Bath time is still at 9 and then it's time to sleep for the night!

    Things I Love:
    • Mortimer the Moose
    • Anything that can go in my mouth
    • Exploring different textures
    • Snuggle naps
    • Watching any screen I can - I love the Top Gear guys!

    This Month's Milestones:
    • I flip from belly to back
    • I'm still a super drooler and talk a lot.
    • I sit up with support
    • I love to stand on laps
    • I got my first cold and was very stuffy for almost 2 weeks!

    Highlights of the Month:
    • I go to the nursery at church on Sundays. The ladies love me... until I get hungry!
    • I blew out three times in 2 days (including during Great-Grandma Hilarion's funeral!) so I've moved up to size 2 diapers
    • I eat completely without the shield, and am doing pretty well eating from a bottle - I just have to be pretty calm to get started.
    • I'm still figuring out laughing- right now I smile, almost giggle and then screech like a pterodactyl. 
    • I still wear almost all 0-3 month clothes, but the 3 month outfits are starting to fit. 
    • I get cranky if I can't flip to my belly to sleep, so mom and dad put me on my side. 
    • I will suck on any and all fingers except my tongue. A favorite is 3 from one hand and 2 from the other... at the same time.
    • Aunts Melissa and Amanda come play with me every Sunday night while Mom and Dad host connection group.
