I cannot believe that Greyson is going to be one in only two months! Where did this year go?! I don’t want my baby boy to get any bigger. I love this age right now. He is so social, loves to cuddle, laugh and he just started crawling over Christmas.
I get alot of questions on Grey’s schedule and what a typical day likes for him. So here is what a normal day looks like. The one thing that varies a little is the time he wakes and the length of his naps.
Routine: How a typical day is for Grey.
730/8am Wake up, laugh and snuggle with dad or mom. Diaper change and dressed for the day.
830am Breakfast! Grey gets a 10 oz bottle and any leftover milk he doesn’t drink we use to make his oatmeal. He loves oatmeal! Banana are also a breakfast favorite.
10am Nap Time – Diaper change and into sleep sack with binkie. He will nap for 2 hours
12pm Wakes- I let him play in his crib till he starts to fuss. Then lots of snuggles and diaper change.
12:30 Lunch – Normally will eat a 5 oz bottle first then in his high chair for solids. He still eats baby food but we have been incorporating solids. He likes mashed carrots, sweet potatoes, diced chicken, quinoa, really anything I offer.
1pm He will usually do floor-time again/play with his toys in the afternoon. He loves lot of entertainment! He loves to read books, play games & he crawls all over the house after me!
3pm Short nap – Diaper change and into sleep sack with binkie. Normally takes around an hour nap.
4pm –Wakes –change diaper
We offer him a 5 oz bottle. He eats so much!
4:15pm – More play time. Loves to cuddle and crawl on me.
5pm –Dinner – We offer him solids depending on what I have made (mashed vegetables, whole wheat noodles, quinoa, etc) otherwise he loves baby food!
6:30pm –Bath time with big sister. He LOVES his bath.
645pm – Change into PJs, night diapers and gets a 10 oz bottle. After burping, goes right into sleep sack and down for the whole night. Yay!!
Sleeping: Greyson has been a great sleeper and I credit that to the consistent routine we are on, the Snoo sleeper we used the first 7 months and the fact he is the second child. He is sleeping through the night and is still going the whole night in his crib with the door shut & the monitor on. Sometimes he wakes during the night and fusses a little bit but he will put himself back to sleep.
Eating: Grey is such a good eater and eats so much! Almost any solid food I introduce, he likes. I try to have cooked sweet potatoe, squash or carrots on hand, since they are soft. I also have a quinoa or pasta on hand. I offer him fruit always after he eats his veggies. I am trying out Cherry tomatoes tonight! And I plan on trying eggs soon. My doctor said it would be good to try out sooner than after 1 years old, as recommended in the past.
Sizes: Greyson is wearing 12-18 months clothing. He is on the leaner side but really long!
- He has now started saying “dada” and “mama” however not sure he knows he is saying it. It’s more like baby talk.
- He waved at me the first time last week.
- He has 2 bottom and one top tooth coming in.
- He is crawling very fast and just started to pull himself up to standing position.
- His new favorite thing to do is try to climb things or stand up holding onto pieces of furniture/people/etc. This can be quite scary/dangerous though so we have to keep my eye on him at all times!
10 Months Postpartum
I am no longer breastfeeding. We switched over to formula around 7 months or so. That has made it easier for me to work out harder now that I am not worried about hurting my supply or have to pump in the early morning. I work out around 5 days a week and feel like my body is back to normal and weight, minus the extra skin around my stomach. High-waist pants are the best for that!
