Felix is 11 months old now! I feel repetitive when I say this, but he’s very close to crawling now. He’s on his hands and knees quite a lot, and scooting backwards. He just needs to learn a little more coordination between his hands and knees. He is enjoying playtime a lot more, and enjoys a variety of toys now instead of just a select few. He’s even playing with pots and pans in the kitchen when allowed. He’s been pulling himself up onto his knees lately, but doesn’t really have the trunk strength to support himself in a standing upright position, so he quickly “melts” into a tummy-down position.
This last few weeks has been full of illnesses. A cold, the stomach flu, another cold. It feels like an endless loop of snot and congestion for Felix. It has messed up anything resembling a sleep schedule, and has made him very clingy.
He remains a great eater. He loves meal times, and always wants to eat what we’re eating. He eats all of it in small bites. He does well with dairy now, and has no diet restrictions any longer.
Felix loves going out of the house. He gets irritable when we stay home for a whole day, so I try to at least go for a short drive every day. However, we are entering the coldest part of the year, so that may change for the next couple of months.
Physical therapy continues to go well. Felix is getting stronger and stronger every week.
Our next update will be a big one. ONE YEAR OLD!
