Hello, hello! I wanted to give you guys a quick “Beckham Update” since I haven’t done one in…forever!! Beckham was 10 months old last week, and that just seems NUTS!! 10 months is so close to ONE YEAR!! How?!! Anyway, I took Beckham for his regular doctors appointment on Monday. (I never took him for his 9 month appointment, woops.) Here’s what the doctor had to say! They said that he is now in the 75th percentile for height! Wow! He used to be in the 10th percentile! The doc was amazed at his growth. He weighs 21 lbs 7 oz, and he seems to be completely healthy, praise Jesus! He didn’t cry too hard with his shot, actually. The worst part about the whole appointment was when I had to get him dressed and he screamed bloody murder. He loves to just be in a diaper. He is so rotten!! Anyway, the doc said we can start the transition to cow’s milk around 11 months. I hope we have a smooth transition. I would also LOVE to have him off of bottles by the time Scotti gets here. He loves drinking water from a sippy cup, but milk, not so much! If anyone has tips, please let me know!! 🙂
So Beckham is walking!! He walks more and more each day. He will walk from the couch to the coffee table, or walk from me to Jared, or walk across the kitchen. But he isn’t full blown walking all over the house, though. He will walk a ways, then plop down and crawl the rest of the way. If I were to put him down in public, he would most likely still crawl around. I think it will just be a matter of time before he is walking with complete confidence!! It is so cute to watch him walk!! I love it!
He is eating everything. Typically for breakfast I’ll do either eggs or a waffle with fruit. Then for lunch I will usually do some cheese toast with fruit and veggies, or leftovers from the day before. And then for dinner, he will eat whatever we are eating, or his favorite…spaghetti!! He snacks on cheerios and ice water, but nothing else, really. He is obsessed with drinking from a straw!
He is jabbering constantly now! He says mama, dada, baba, and then says some other things that must be his own language. He loves books and likes to read to himself, haha! He has 4 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth, and a third bottom tooth is coming in now. I’m always trying to check to see if more are coming in, but his teeth are way too sharp for me to feel around in there. I don’t know how you breastfeeding mamas do it once they have teeth! OUCH!!
This is Beckham’s current schedule which comes from the book Moms On Call.
7:00 Wake Up! Sometimes he wakes at 6:45. He almost always wake up with a nice big poopy. Yum!
7:00 6 oz bottle with cartoons
8:00 Breakfast with ice water
9:00-10:15 Nap Time
10:30 Cheerios and ice water
11:00 6 oz bottle
12:00 Lunch with ice water
1:00-2:30 Nap Time
3:00 6 oz bottle
5:00 Dinner with ice water
6:45 PJs and lotion
So that’s what’s going on in our little man’s life! His schedule will change a little bit at 11 months as we try to drop some of the bottles. I will try to do a post on that when it happens and let you all know how it goes!
