Baby Q – 11 Months Old

Baby Q has been 11 Months old for three days already … :veryshocked:

He’s growing up so fast now. He’s not an expert walker yet, but is walking most all the time he’s on the floor in the house, moving around. He rarely resorts to a crawl since the day he actually starting really walking, not just taking a couple of steps, as he did for a couple of days, then was off. (Mid-10 Months.)

On Saturday we were out shopping, it was a hot day, and it was really hot in one store we were at, and then going outside into our van it was even hotter for a long time. I, myself, was over heating, and for me it’s a serious issue when that happens. Our van A/C doesn’t work right, and only the front air works at all, the rear air only blows fresh air temp (we’ve had it looked at but no one, thus far, knows what is wrong.) The front air works, sure, but doesn’t put a dent in the “hot” days in the middle and rear sections of the van, and barely cools the front down “enough” to suffice.

So I wasn’t sure on that day whether or not the heat was affecting the baby, but on the way home he did get sick, Thanks be to God I had only breastfed him that day. He threw up a few more times in the next couple of hours, but then finally slept, and then seemed a lot better. I skipped one feeding, about one, and gingerly let him eat later when he seemed to want to, and he only nursed on one side, then about half an hour later, the other side, and didn’t throw up again. He was tired, obviously not feeling well, but not listless, just didn’t feel good.

He didn’t have a fever or anything, it was just curdled milk throw up, and never dry heaves, not seemingly dehydrated either. It wasn’t a full day event either, so, we are just glad he’s OK. That evening, after I’d finished nursing him he wanted to continue being held, then perked up and became his normal “aren’t I a cool and active baby” self

Baby Q continues to be a big talker, and he’s saying very clear things, to us, “brother” is a big one of late, referring to either of his older brothers. He calls them, greets them, and so on. He says many other things, I should write them down. Of course I wouldn’t expect anyone outside our immediate family to be able to understand what he says.

It’s “summer” here now. May is almost over, and it’ll be June, and then not long after that, Baby Q will be One. It’s less than a month away!

Baby Q, Walking

Baby Q had been close to walking for a long while. It seemed “any day now” since 9 months, and finally, in this past week he started taking half-steps here and there, and after two days of that, he was ready.

So we now have a “walker” – a human baby, walking, stepping his way toward toddlerhood.

Baby Q – 10 Months Old

Baby Q turned 10 months on the 23rd of April. It’s been so busy, I haven’t had the time to write anything online …

He’s getting bigger, really advancing, so very, very close to “walking” but still “cruising” instead of actually taking own steps. He does pull up to standing from a sitting on the floor position, he can stand for a couple of minutes without losing balance and going “boom” — he’s just content to do all this and not “walk” … which is going to end at any time, sooner than later.

He “talks” all the time. Actually intelligible to me and some of our family here. It’s not really English, but close, getting there. Absolutely he mimics things I say often, and also says things for himself. He loves exploring sibling faces, with his fingers, and of course Mama and Daddy’s faces as well.

His [acronym title=”Papa”]grandpa[/acronym] was here for a few days this week, just left yesterday evening. He was very shy the first day, and the second day he was A-OK with him. He saw his Papa the first time when he wouldn’t remember, he was just barely a month old, and this last meeting was his second, but a first for Baby Q the near-toddler.

That’s all I can write now, I’ll publish this so that I put something up, and hope to finish it more fully later.
