Basics: He hasn’t nursed in almost 3 months, and so that’s 3 months of sleeping through the night! Sometimes when he’s teething he’ll wake up early or just randomly in the middle of the night. But it’s not bad. He’s currently getting somewhere between 4-6 teeth right now. 2 just popped through after a week of terrible teething, and I’m pretty sure he’s getting his 1 year molars as well. With the teething, comes the not eating. He’s not usually picky. There are a few things he doesn’t like, but it’s not hard to get him to eat either. But it is when he’s teething. He basically won’t eat anything but yogurt, fruit, and chicken . . . but only with ketchup. Mama’s ready to go back to normal.
Fun Stuff: We finally have a walker at 14 months! He’s not quite stable yet. He definitely is not one of those kids who walks and then runs immediately. Now I’ve said that and he’ll start running today. But he prefers to walk and just be close to the wall or hold my hand over crawling. He LOVES to climb the stairs (which we don’t let him do without one of us right behind him). He’s very good at sorting things especially all of his balls and other round toys. His favorite thing is to play catch and toss the ball. He’s very good at talking back when appropriate or asking for things he needs or wants. We’re not quite there with the words yet tho. Everything is da. We’ll say do you want to eat and he’ll go da.
Tomorrow is his first Thanksgiving to eat the food! I think he’s going to love it. As long as he gets to watch Trolls at least once. Because that is literally his very favorite thing in the whole wide world.
We also had our first glaucoma appointment here in Indiana. To catch you up . . . my husband and his brother were born with glaucoma. It’s genetic so we have all of our children tested in the womb, and then also seen by a specialist. Congenital glaucoma can present anytime between 3 months to 1 year old (some present even after that). Jack was low risk for genetic conditions in the womb, and has always been very good about checking his eye pressure. His eye pressure has always been GREAT! He never has a problem focusing on things and his eyes are never fuzzy or blurry looking. Our doctor in Florida thought his case was fascinating because of the family history so she saw him for up to an hour at 2 months, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months, 7 months, 9 months, and wanted to see him again at 13 months.
But we moved to Indiana. So now we see my husbands doctor from when he was a kid! With Jack he said he’s confident that Jack does not have glaucoma!! He still wants to check him occasionally, but there is no constant worry of glaucoma anymore. He’s recommended having Scott genetically tested and then just check all of our children against that to see if they share the gene. That certainly sounds easy so it’s what we’re looking into now.
