Easton weighs 20.8 pounds and is 29 inches. He is going to catch Natalie before too long (she is 33 inches)!
Milestones This Month
Easton can sit fairly well, although he has a freaky tendency to suddenly throw himself backwards. Mommy is not a fan of that. He gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth constantly, so will probably be crawling before too long. And then, watch out!
Easton has been doing well sleeping at night. He isn't the nighttime sleeper Natalie is, but is pretty consistent. With the current heat wave he hasn't been sleeping as well, but neither has anyone else. Naps are hit-and-miss. Sometimes he will take a great 2-3 hour nap, and sometimes it will only be 30 minutes. Mommy always plans for 30 minute naps so she can be pleasantly surprised when they are longer.
The doctor told Mommy at Easton's last appointment that "there are no real food restrictions, except raw honey" and to start giving him red meat! So sky's the limit for this boy. So far Mommy hasn't branched out too far, but he has had some spaghetti and almost every fruit and veggie under the sun. Mommy keeps trying to give him Puff snacks but he isn't crazy about the texture and ends up gagging most of the time. We are working on it.
Easton is pretty good at getting his point across. He giggles, smiles, cries, and whines with the best of them. He doesn't babble as much as the last month, but he is pretty busy with physical milestones so social milestones have taken a back seat.
Easton loves to play! He is really starting to get into his toys, and Natalie's toys, much to her consternation. She isn't a huge fan of letting Easton play with her toys and often has to be convinced that it is okay. Watch out world when he starts crawling; we are going to have a VERY unhappy big sister! Easton isn't as entertained in his jumparoo, exersaucer, or bouncer as he used to be. He would much rather be on the floor playing with toys, rolling/scooting around, and trying to crawl.
