Owen just seems to continue to grow so much. At his last appointment he was 18 lbs 12 oz and 30 inches long. He is still so long!
Owen is still drinking breast milk. He is eating 4 times a day now. I have recently stopped with day time nursing and he will get a bottle mixed with breast milk and almond milk. We found out that his skin issues were related to dairy so Owen will be having almond milk instead of whole milk.
Owen is regularly having 3 meals a day and loves real food. We try to give him what we are eating unless it has dairy. He loves most foods but one thing we found he doesn’t like is raspberries. He spits them out.
Owen loves using his sippy cup. He actually prefers it over his bottle since we switched to no day time nursing so he gets his milk in a sippy cup.
Owen has been sleeping through the night. We are also at about 2-3 naps a day. We have a general nap pattern now that consists of a morning nap around 9 for about an hour and an afternoon nap usually around 12-1 ish for about 2 hours, and then if needed he takes a 3rd short nap in the evening.
Owen has the four teeth now and it seems like he may be cutting a 5th any day now.
Owen is crawling everywhere! He is quick too. He is also pulling himself up to standing on everything possible. He scoots from side to side holding on to things. He can stand on his own for about 10 seconds and sometimes more but he gets too excited to move and either falls down or squats down. He loves using a walk and has made attempts to take a step on his own.
He babbles a lot and enjoys yelling and growling.
Owen has learned so much and will imitate most things you do. He waves “hi,” gives kisses, lays his head on your shoulder to be “so nice,” does “so big,” claps his hands, fake laughs, cries, and coughs, and I’m sure so much more that I am not thinking of.
Owen and Liam are interacting more and more as Owen grows. Owen wants everything to do with Liam and will follow him around the house.
Owen is definitely a mama’s boy.
