Victor is now three quarters of a year! He is not-so-rapidly growing out of the baby stage. Actually, he is hardly outgrowing out of it at all. I forget how old he is because he still has no teeth, doesn’t eat too many solids, doesn’t roll and doesn’t crawl. Does that sound like a 9-month-old to you?
If I’m honest, I have to say that I am kind of stunting his development on purpose (with crawling, etc. I try to feed him but he mostly just throws it up 10 minutes later). I am not encouraging him to learn to crawl or roll right now because we are a week away from a cruise, and it will just be a lot easier to not have a mobile baby. Yep. I am as selfish as I sound. :)
The last time he was measured he was in the 10th percentile for height and 50th for weight. I don’t remember the exact numbers, but the perfect cuddling proportions! He is the best baby to cuddle and loves doing it. I think he also loves eating my face as much as I like eating his!
Personality wise, Victor is quick to smile, but holds his laughs in reserves for only the rarest of occasions. Usually when he laughs it is because Calvin is laughing at him, or he is being tickled in the rib cage. But those two things don’t always work. He’s a mysterious boy, he is.
He is back to sharing a room with Calvin after a short time apart due to us moving Calvin’s mattress onto the floor but not having another to replace it in the crib. The sharing has gone fairly well so far. We mostly just have to make sure that Calvin doesn’t make too much noise when he goes to bed if Victor is already sleeping. Victor wakes up at least once during the night still and is awake for the day normally between 5:30 and 6:30, but his cries then don’t wake Calvin up thankfully.
And here he is, in a photo I took because his hair was staticky, but was rewarded with this sweet face.
We love you, Victor!
