Our baby in review: His Eleventh Month

Baby Boy turned 11 months on May 6, 2011, and that means we are mere WEEKS from the big one. Number one. ONE YEAR OLD. I can’t possibly be the mother of an almost-one-year-old. I’m still figuring crap out! Vital stats: Baby Boy was last weighed and measured…

Our baby in review: His Tenth Month

Baby Boy is 10 ten 10 months old. The former copy editor in me is struggling with using the “right” way to write 10 (10) and the more “accepted” way to write 10 (ten).  Either way, he is 10 months old, as of yesterday. In a…

Our baby in review: His Ninth Month

Baby Boy is nine months old. He’s officially been on the outside longer than he was on the inside. He is less than three months away from being a one-year-old.  Vital stats: At his six-month appointment, he was 19 lbs. We just got back…

Our baby in review: His Eighth Month

Baby Boy is EIGHT MONTHS OLD, people! I’m not much for math, but I do know that eight months is 3/4 of the way to twelve months (one yearrrrrr)! He is less than four months away from eating a hunk of birthday cake. My…

Our baby in review: His Seventh Month

Vital stats: At his six-month appointment, Baby Boy was 19 pounds (76th percentile) and 26 inches tall (49th percentile). His 18-inch head was in the 95th percentile — not surprising, given that both Darling Husband and I have very large heads. We’re so happy…

Our baby in review: His Sixth Month

Baby Boy is six months old today. Half a year ago, I was lying in a hospital bed, and he was born.Half a year from now, he’ll be smashing his hand into a birthday cake that I’ll bake for him. These last six months…

Our baby in review: His Fifth Month

I can’t believe my baby is five months old. No longer can I cling to saying he’s “four-and-a-half months.” He is a full-fledged five-month-old, which is so close to SIX MONTHS which is SO OLD and AUGHHH! Before I melt into a gooshy puddle,…

Our baby in review: His Fourth Month

Vital stats: On his four-month birthday, he weighed 17 pounds, 2 oz. (90th percentile!) and measured 63.5 cm long (50th percentile). Milestones: Sooo many this month! His focus improved so much, and he began snapping his head around to look at specific things and…

Our baby in review: His Third Month

* I know, I’m super-late posting this (considering he’s halfway through his fourth month). Bear with me! * Vital stats: He hasn’t been weighed since his two-month visit (when he was 13 lbs., 13 oz. at nine weeks old). Our guess is that he’s…

Our baby in review: His Second Month

Vital stats: Baby Boy weighed 13 lbs, 2 oz. when he was exactly seven weeks old, and 13 lbs., 13 oz. when he was nine weeks old. His weight isn’t climbing nearly as quickly as it did in the first month, and he seems…

Our baby in review: His First Month

I can’t believe Baby Boy is a month old today! I’ve always heard people with kids say, “Oh, enjoy every moment. It goes so fast!” And you know what? It does go by freaking fast! One month ago, this baby was inside me. He’s…
