Shane will be 1 on the 16th. He is HUGE, and just into everything and laughs all the time. I haven't been on much at all, just busy with life. DH is gone right now and we are gearing up for a deployment, so I don't have as much time as I did before.
Shane didn't crawl properly until he was about 10 months, maybe closer to 11. He did a silly scoot thing, but now is finally standing up, but not ready to walk.
He has had 6 teeth since he was 7 months old and learned how to bite mommy while nursing. That has NOT been fun, but that is slowing down as well. I am just waiting for him to get more teeth in. That might not be fun.
He just started sleeping semi decently. Down around 930 and up at 4 or so, then I bring him back to bed with me and he sleeps for another few hours depending on when I have to get up.
He has started to slowly wean. He doesn't really nurse much at all during the day, mostly just when he goes to sleep or wakes up in the Am. It makes me kind of sad, but really, it is best that he is doing it. Besides I am so busy during the day that I don't have much time to sit and really just nurse him. He gets BM in a sippy cause I do pump a bit after he goes to sleep, so he still gets milk, just not always at the tap. He also sadly keeps stealing his buddies bottles of formula (I do daycare) so he will drink that as well.
He is talking a bit. He says mama, dada, Jack (our dog) Bu (our other dog) he even said Jake (his brother Jacob). He does some signs like eat, more, please, all done, milk, hi, bye. Other then that, I think we just anticipate what he wants so often that he isn't being forced to communicate as much as he probably could.
He is a happy guy that laughs and smiles all the time but you would never know by all theh pictures we take. Its like the second a camera comes out he stops smiling. His dad does the same thing. Weirdos
I am enjoying every minute I have with him and trying to remember he is my last so I better not wish he grew up too fast.
I will post pictures after his birthday on Wed.
