Knox & Sloane are NINE months old today. NINE. That seems to close to a year to me. It is. It’s beyond me how in just a few short months we will be celebrating their first year of life.
I’m that mommy who celebrates everyday of their life because I can’t help myself. I’ve said goodbye to a baby and everyday with the ones I have here is truly a celebration. Don’t get me wrong, these last two weeks have been rough. Knox has been miserable. It’s been stressful and hectic. I’ve been stressed that I can’t fix his little skin. But we’ve gotten through it and I know all these tougher moments are all part of the package and make the sweet ones even sweeter
Luckily, he woke up this morning with his skin looking much better. We’ve been working on his food intake. I also stopped nursing him this week. I’m still nursing Sloane and she has no issues.
I still owe you all a breastfeeding post, but I decided to see if my milk has having any affect on his skin. It’s hard to say if for certain it was, but he switched to Alimentum with no issues. A few other reasons I decided the end was near on breastfeeding……. they are getting big! I’ve been nursing both at the same time and it was getting tricky. Not to mention, they wanted to swat at each other and push and they were just distracting one another and not eating. My hormones also started flowing, if you will, and I think it’s adjusted my production some.
I’m going o try to take some nine month pictures tomorrow.
They are crawling like crazy. Also, getting very fast.
They are pulling up in their crib and on the couch as well.
They are eating pretty good, but I’m feeling a little stump on what to give them. They don’t want to be feed much anymore and with Knox’s skin, we feel like some foods are triggering flares. He had an allergy to bananas on the blood test, but they can’t test for everything. They’ve had bananas, avocados, toast, annie’s spaghetti o’s, watermelon, puffs, mum mums and we are about to do potatoes. I’m really close to just setting anything down and letting them try it, but still a bit paranoid, too. As for fruits and veggies (as well as all the purees we’ve done), I’m sticking to organic.
We are between Honest & Pampers as for diapers. I had a stockpile of Pampers so we are using them, mostly at night. Knox tinkles more being on steroids. I still go back and forth on cloth diapering. I want to do it but I’ve been putting it off and they’ve been keeping me busy enough with other things.
They both do patty cake and Sloane is waving hi and bye. Knox is starting to wave. It’s super cute 🙂
Knox has FIVE teeth. Sloane still has two but is working on a few more.
Mostly in 6-9 month clothing.
Starting to transition into the bigger stroller seats. We will probably wait on the bigger car seats until closer to a year.
Still napping twice a day, but Knox has had a harder time these past two weeks, poor little buddy. It’s just hard for him to stay comfortable for long, especially if he gets warm.
Knox is weighing a little over 17lbs and our Guess is Sloane is a little over 18. We always feel like she is more, but the past few times they’ve gone in together, she has always been pretty close. They go back in for a WCC in June.
They are so fun! Sloane is SO laid back and Knox is notsomuch. I take that back, he can be, but lately, with his steroids and such, he’s been pretty irritable and wants to be held.
This video melts my heart. I took it a nights ago.
I was folding laundry on the bed and they were playing with Brent. It was close to their bedtime.
It’s really their first time they interacted for this long with each
other, just giggling away! It’s a bit dark, so hard to see Knox’s hilarious smile with all his little teefies.
