This was a big month for Isaiah! He started walking on February 16th at 9.5 months. I would be sad about how early he started if it weren’t for my 20w pregnant belly that’s getting bigger by the day. The less I have to carry him, the better… Ten days later I’d say he’s about 60/40 crawling/walking. I’m surprised how much he seems to enjoy walking and will stand up and start even though he can crawl faster. He’s steady and calculated with his steps. Zay has enjoyed a few warm playground play days and he loves the swings. He’s babbling and talking a lot. He definitely knows Dada, Mama, Ali/sister, BaBa (bottle), Bye-bye, Up, Ma (more), Duh duh (doggie), Na na (no, no), Ah da (all done), Yeah. If we say, “Are you sleepy, Zay-Zay?” he’ll lay his head down. So cute. It’s really fun to see him learning and growing and conquering new things everyday. He’s been going to sleep easily at bedtime and nap time again after a brief period where he would cry when I laid him down (separation anxiety I assume). Thankfully that’s going well now after I started implementing a few new techniques. We still wake him up for one last late night bottle before we go to sleep for the night. If we skip it (like I tried to do last night…) he’ll wake up hungry in the middle of the night. Zay is a sweet, delightful guy with an adorable toothy grin. Big sister Ali plays so well with him and they make each other laugh a lot. He adores everyone in his family and vice versa. This past week I set up a full size crib in his room in the very beginning stages of converting his room into a double nursery, making a space for his little sibling who will share his room. He’s 23″ pounds and tall. He’s wearing size 4/5 shoes depending on the brand. He has 6 teeth.
