Baby Prez: 25 Weeks

Dear Baby Prez,



Weight:    According to my handy dandy (not so) trusty bathroom scale, you are about 18 and half pounds. What a growing boy!

Health:  Staying healthy so far!







Sleep:  Mommy and Daddy are trying to really get your nighttime routine completely consistent, but sometimes you decide to nod off early before we even start to get you ready for bed!  Silly boy!  You eat around 7:30pm (usually with Mommy), then you take a bath (that's usually Daddy's job), then we read a story.  Our favorite right now is Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain.  The norm right now is a dream feed about 11pm, which you usually sleep right through and then you sleep until about 5am, drink a bottle, and then go back to sleep until 7 or 8am.  When we are lucky, you sleep all the way through to 7 or 8am!

Social:  This week you spent part of the weekend with Mimi, Grandad and cousin C so that Mommy and Daddy could get some work done.  Mommy and Daddy missed you lots, but you had so much fun!  You tried some organic baby food for the first time, but Mimi reported that you were not a huge fan of it.  I guess you've been spoiled with homemade baby food!  














Diet:  You tried organic baby food and strawberries this week.  Organic baby food was not a hit, but you liked the strawberries.  What will next week bring with Thanksgiving?  We will have to puree you a Thanksgiving feast!


Likes:   Toes, jumping, your walker, your jumper at Mimi's house, eating, and a lampshade in Mommy and Daddy's bedroom.  Yes, a lampshade.  We haven't figured out why, but seem to love staring at it whether or not the light is on.



You love staring at this lamp.

Dislikes:  Being hungry, fighting sleep, and laying down.

What you've learned this week . . .

Reaching for people.  On Sunday evening, you reached for Mommy.  In fact, you nearly leapt out of Daddy's arms.  On Monday, you reached from Mommy to Daddy!  Mommy has been waiting and waiting for you to learn this!




  

Love,

Mommy
