His third tooth (front tooth up top) has finally come in, and the one next to it is on its way also. These things have been so stubborn, and this kid is drooling like you wouldn't believe. We finally had to start putting bibs on him because his shirts are just soaked. It's gross....he's very slimy these days.
He's also discovered the joy of throwing things. Thankfully most everything he throws is a ball or one of his toys because watch out! He's pretty good at getting straight throws but not always. And he will throw right at the dogs, little stinker. My parents were watching him last week, and he had a blankie on their floor. Their dog, Vinnie, went over and laid on it. No big deal until Hunter saw. They said he flipped out, crawled over there, and tried to hit Vinnie. Don't mess with his blankets! I keep saying "gentle" when he's around the dogs because he definitely likes to crawl up to them and whack them instead of petting them.
For me, personally, this has been a really tough month. Like I said, the bakery is so crazy. I'm working all the time, and on my days home with Hunter, I have to work during his naps. I need to start saying no to more people (I already do say no a lot), and try and take it easy a bit more. I went to the doctor last week for a blood draw because I think there's something off in me. I sleep really well, and usually about 8-9 hours every night, and I'm still completely exhausted every.single.day. I'm really hoping that something comes back that's easy to fix. I cannot keep feeling like this. I want and need more energy.
Hunter has recently started to be able to open drawers and cabinets, and this has opened a whole new world for him. The other morning I let him demolish the Tupperware lid drawer because why not. He also loves the lazy Susan where I keep my bottles of sprinkles. If only he knew what sprinkles really are! Then he would love it even more. We need to install some locks on the cabinets under the sink with the cleaning products, but otherwise, I think I'm just going to keep an eye on him. We'll see...that could definitely change!
He still eats a lot of the same food. Nothing really new or exciting, and he still doesn't like noodles, which basically kills me. Ha. I did buy a make your own pouch food system thing, which is pretty cool. It's reusable pouches that you can refill with whatever. So it saves the environment (not my main concern), but it saves money (yay for that). I've only been filling them with applesauce so far, but I'm also going to fill them with pureed fruit baby food. It's way cheaper than buying the pouches--those things are super expensive! Plus he likes them, so that's a plus!
