Over the past month, our big boy keeps growing and getting more and more independent.
- He has mastered holding his own bottle, and knows how to pick up his food on his tray and put it in his mouth.
- Teething-- this is probably the most significant event over the past month. Will has his 2nd tooth in on the bottom, but it's been pretty rough on him. It's so crazy how much he poops, and because of that, he has gotten a really bad diaper rash :( Poor guy. Hasn't broken the skin yet, but looks like it could anytime. It's been VERY red, so we called the doctor last week and they prescribed an antibiotic, which helped a lot over night, but seems like every time he poos, and we don't catch it right away, it'll flare up. So, we are really hoping our sweet boy gets over this, although from what I hear, it can last quite a while. The good news is, it really hasn't changed his mood too much, only when we change him and/or have to try not to wipe much, since that irritate the skin even more. Hope next month we can say it's much better!
- Daycare- we are feeling more comfortable with the people at daycare and Will fitting in there. He seems to enjoy it, and has days that he takes 1 1/2 hr naps at least...so it's not as much as he does at home, but it's better than when we started! Will has also started eating the meals they provide at daycare, and they say he's done really well with the table food. Good job buddy!
- September has been a fun month of nice, relaxing weekends at home. Patrick finished putting in the flagstone patio in our backyard, so we have gotten to enjoy that (now on to the next project for him...he doesn't stop! I think he gets it from Bill :)) We have been able to get out and enjoy this awesome fall weather, catch some good football games (mostly on TV, maybe we'll get to a game or two at some point), and spend some time with good friends and family. It's what it's all about :) Both Patrick and I are getting more and more busy with work, but it's all good, and I guess comes along with getting more responsibilities. We are both pretty lucky our work is flexible with schedules and we can take off early if needed, etc.
Hope you all have a great week!
