Why does he look like such a big boy?!
How is everyone’s week going? I am beyond ready for the weekend but also freaked out that Christmas is right around the corner. We are actually heading to Trevor’s parent’s place the week before Christmas since he is working the holiday so I need to get everything in order before then. Have you all finished your shopping? Luckily, we just do kid’s gifts now and they are nothing crazy so it’s not a ton of stress. Since it’s been a while since I shared an update on Zain and his schedule, foods, etc I thought now would be the perfect time!
When is he sleeping?
He still has his usual bedtime between 6-7pm. It just depends on if he’s at school or not, how well he napped, etc. He wakes up between 6-7am and is definitely a morning person like his parents. I guess I’m not sure if we are morning people but we have always gotten up early. Even before we had a kid Trevor and I would wake up at 7am on weekends and have coffee.
As far as naps, he is still on 2 when he’s home with me during the week and weekends and one at daycare. I was fighting it in the beginning but my kid likes to sleep and why would I stop him? 🙂 Some days he skips one and that’s fine but if not he naps at 9am and 1pm. Both of those are usually a solid 2 hours!
What is he eating?
Everything! I shared a post on some of his favorite foods a little while ago but I have really tried to introduce him to a variety of foods lately. We try all ethnicity’s and I’m happy to say he loves Indian food 🙂 Recent favorites are Dr.Praeger’s which we find at Whole Foods, Happy Baby Yogurt and spinach!
Is he talking?
Yes and no 😉 He makes plenty of noise from his mouth (where are my toddler moms?) but has about 10 words he says regularly. Everyday I feel like we are adding new ones but he may say something once and then not again. We are trying to be really conscious of reading to him during the day and getting 3-5 books in at night before bed. Any other tips mama’s?
Current favorite products for him?
Oh man, so many cute finds lately! This Uppababy Minu travel stroller has been wonderful. It fits in an overhead bin on an airplane and I will be sharing full details on it soon but for now just know it’s the greatest. These mega blocks have been a big hit lately and I just picked out this kitchen for him from my parents for Christmas and this table from Trevor’s. I ordered a ton of art supplies and can’t wait for him to have somewhere to be creative so I will update you once it’s all here!
Hope you guys are having a great Friday and cheers to the weekend!
