Those high pitch squeals are real pleasant during our family dinners. Other times I can usually tune them out, but not at dinner. It’s his way of saying… Gimme, Gimme. I need, I need. Give him more food!
Although the rest of the kids enjoyed our impromptu trip up north to find snow – Briggs did not. At all. Perhaps it was the snow pants. Or the boots. Or the hat. Its hard to say what it was exactly, but he cried the majority of the time. We tried setting him on the sled. We tried putting him in the carseat. Unfortunately – he was happiest being held. Clearly, he was made for Arizona!
He’s got two teeth and by the way he’s been acting this week, I’m sure he’s got two more coming! With two teeth in that little mouth, he has been devouring food. I love the stage when they start to eat table foods more than they eat baby foods. He’s got some staples: bread, bananas, rice chex, cheerios, veggie straws, black beans and ritz crackers. He’s still coming around to avocados and northern beans. We finally got him taking a transitional sippy cup (he refuses the bottle) which means the weaning process can begin. Oh happy day!
He’s 10 months old and tipping the scale at 16 lbs. He’s not our biggest baby, that’s for sure. But when I’m packing him around, I’m okay he’s a lightweight. He’s built just like Hunter as a baby and he loves food. We introduced him to black beans this week and he devoured them. He also finally caught on to the sippy cup concept which means the weaning process can begin. Oh happy day.
We’re bringing in a new year – Briggs’ style. This picture makes it look as though he can stand on his own – he can’t. He’s laying down in this picture! He brought in the new year at approximately 9:45, tired and rubbing his eyes. He was tired of watching everyone play dodgeball and he really didn’t care for the dance party in the dark room with glowsticks. So he was off to bed to dream of party hats and noisemakers. He’s ready for the new year and so are we!
