Luca is 1!! He had his first trip to Disney world this month, has one tooth, says dog and dadda, and loves the wheels on the bus song. He eats like crazy- two to three eggs for breakfast plus yogurt fruit and avocado! He is drinking 7-8 oz of milk 4 x a day. Takes two naps and sleeps about 11 hours at night. He goes to bed around 6:30 every night. He’s in 12-18 month clothes, walking/running everywhere, and loves the bear in the book on the night you were born. He’s still doing swim every week and is getting used to holding his breath under water. He met his cousin Elaine on 9/22 and was very interested in her. He can clap and wave and is a happy boy!! We love him so much.
Luca is 11 months!! Just one month away from being 1 which is crazy. He started taking a few steps last week!! He continues to babble but his favorite sounds are dada and duh (dog). He occasionally says na-na, mama, hey/hi sounds. He waves bye bye to mom when she goes to work and claps his hands occasionally. He loves to chase Harvey around the house using his walker. He started back up with swim lessons and is in the parent tot 1 class at Seal Swim School. They work on going under the water more and finding the ledge in case the child falls in. He also works on kicking and floating on his back. His favorite song is wheels on the bus and he loves the bear in the book On the Night You Were Born. He’s learned how to crawl up on the couch (and showed us he can go up stairs last month in Indiana). His first tooth started coming in but isn’t fully in yet. We can just see the top of it poking out of the gums. He’s taking two naps a day for about an hour- hour and a half each and drinks 4 bottles a day with 3 meals in between. He’s wearing size 4 diapers and size 12-18 month clothes.
I can’t believe luca is ten months now. We are almost to a year and it seems like we became parents just yesterday. He continues to cruise around the house, says a lot of sounds like dada, dog (duh), hey, yeah. He loves to play with his books and pull them off the shelves. He went to Indiana for Megan and Ryan’s shower so we got to see a lot of family and friends. Flying has become a lot easier as Luca becomes a pro at it. He is eating more foods with chunks and larger pieces that he can pick up himself. He also picks them up to feed the dog lol.
Our little crawler is continuing to cruise around the house. He is using his walker to stand and will go around in the sitting walker (he likes to chase Harvey!) he still takes 3 naps a day and eats 3 meals(4-6 oz) and 4 bottles/breastfeeding. (7-8 oz each). We introduced yogurt for breakfast everyday with fruit or eggs. He eats some kind of meat and veggies for lunch and then usually has oatmeal for dinner. His favorite sounds right now are dada and duh (dog). He waves bye bye to mommy only right now! He loves to stand up and play his piano and stand to pull all of his books off of the shelf in his room. He also took his second flight (first solo with mommy) and was great! We flew to Navarre for aunt Erin’s baby shower! He got to try out all of cousin Elaine’s baby gear and meet our old friends and coworkers.
Luca has a new house. He loves his pool and backyard! It took a few nights to get used to sleeping in his new room but now we are back to 11-12 hours of uninterrupted sleep. He continues to crawl like crazy and attempts to stand up. He is eating five times a day still (6 oz milk) as well as three times of solids.
Mr. Big Guy is 7 months!! He’s weighing in around 19 pounds and 29 inches. He is crawling now with full force and pulling himself up to stand. We had to lower the crib to the lowest setting. He is still a super happy guy who loves to eat and be around people. He hasn’t gotten any teeth in yet. He was baptized this month! Natalie/Vince and Erin/Kevin stood as his godparents/christian witnesses. We’ve moved into our new home so his bedroom now has carpeting. We also bought some new rugs to give him more space to crawl with a little cushion. He continues to love the food I make for him- avocado, spinach, carrots, sweet potato, butternut squash, pear, and oatmeal!
Luca made it to half a year!! He is trying to hard to crawl, but isn’t quite there yet. He is eating a ton of new foods – mango, strawberry, avocado, butternut squash, sweet potato… he isn’t a huge fan of the carrots. He graduated swim class so they had him swim under water for the first time. He was so good and didn’t swallow any water! He also discovered grass when we went for a walk and really liked the feeling of it on his hands. He met the Easter bunny but did not cry; he seemed to like him actually! He also started sleeping on his stomach.
