Gio is HUGE! I’m really sorry for not being on here and giving monthly updates on my little guy. Honestly, for a while I wasn’t sure anymore if I wanted to blog, if I didn’t want to, but I love it so here we are!
Last time we went to the doctor’s office, Gio weighed approximately 20lbs and measured 30in. He’s definitely taller now! Possibly heavier too? Maybe. This kid is getting so big and outgrowing everything!
Little fun facts about Gio:
-He stands! Supporting onto something/ someone. I feel like he can stand on his own, but when he realizes that you’re not holding him, he’ll let himself fall.
-He walks with support! With one of us, with a walker or one of those walkers he has to push himself
-He has 4 teeth! Let me tell ya, when those top two were coming out… He was something else, lol
-He LOVES his bath. He loves water in general
-He’s not much of a crier. He does get fussy, even cranky, but he doesn’t really cry
-He will look for something when you hide it
-He waves hi and bye, and kind of says hola
-He babbles A LOT
-He claps! Finally! One of his favorite things is clapping. Especially with his dad- his dad will clap and he becomes so amazed, then he puts his head in-between his hands and has his dad clap on his head, its the funniest thing. Now that he learned to clap he’s so amazed with himself, he even stares at his hands after lol
-He can feed himself with his hands, sometimes he’ll get the hang of the spoon but only for a handful of tries
-He is now only formula fed (had to stop around 8 months). He can use the bottle and sippy cup perfectly on his owns
-He eats purees and pieces of food. He doesn’t really care what puree he eats. He’s always accepted them all. Actual pieces of food isn’t the same story, though. Sometimes he’ll love one food one day, but not the next.
-He likes a few shows like Bubble Guppies, Little Einsteins, Paw Patrol, Team Umizoomi, Super Why, etc., but doesn’t watch as much of it. I try my best to keep him active, but the shows do help me honestly
-He goes to a gym class and LOVES it
