13 Month Update

I am going to continue Harry's monthly updates for now. At this age he still changes month to month. Although his monthly pictures will be different. I don't have any more stickers for him and the last few months it was a real struggle to keep him still long enough on his back for me to take a picture.


Weight: Around 21 pounds
Height: He was just under 32 inches at his last doctor's appointment, much taller than I thought!
Diaper Size: We're still doing a size 4 disposable diaper once a day, and cloth diapers the rest of the time.
Clothing Size: He's wearing stuff in 9, 12 and 18 month sizes.
Eating:  We have been formula-free for a couple weeks now. All is well! He eats 4 meals a day right now. He drinks a couple sippy cups of water and we give him a few ounces of milk in a sippy at bedtime (he doesn't take it to bed with him). He's also really interested in what we're eating these days. Anytime I have a snack he comes over to try and get a bite. He tried Pringles for the first time the other day, haha! I usually try to keep healthier snacks around him, like apples, which he loves.
Sleeping: He's still in our bed. I'm still not loving the co-sleeping thing. I don't sleep well with him tossing and turning next to me. But I'm getting used to it. He's also pushed his bedtime back a lot, he usually doesn't fall asleep until past 10 o'clock. And it's not an issue of over-tiredness like it was a few months ago. His schedule has just changed unfortunately. He sleeps past 9am most days, too.
Teeth: He went about three months without any new ones, but I just felt two coming in the other day. They've been giving him a hard time. He had a bit of a fever the other night and has been pretty fussy this whole week. So, he's up to eight teeth, six on top and two on the bottom.  
Communication: Just a lot of babbling still. And he still says "dada" when I ask him to say "mama." So, no changes from last month. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't getting a little worried. But, he does understand a lot. He responds correctly when I say the following (as in performing the task or finding the object):
  • Clap your hands!
  • Where's your tummy?
  •  Can I have a kiss?
  • Wave!
  • High five!
  • Can I have a hug?
  • Get your book!
  • Find your paci!
  • Where's your juice (water)? 
The tummy thing is probably the cutest thing he does, he pats his abdomen and gives the biggest smile every time. He picked it up the first time I taught him, too. I tried teaching him where his hair was the other day, but he hasn't mastered that quite yet.
