Carson {13 months}

So even though my big boy is already one, I still want to write his monthly updates here and there. He is growing and learning so much, so I felt the need to document some of it!

Carson is such a bundle (a big bundle) of joy and it has been so fun watching him grow into such a big personality. He has been really sweat and cuddly lately which has been really nice.  But most of the time, this kid is busy, busy, busy! Still not walking yet, but we are getting there! I think I am at the point now where I would like for him to walk, he is getting so heavy! Carson is such a good eater and gets mad when his food is all gone! I swear this boy eats more than me! Some of his favorite foods are..

  • Bananas (he points to them whenever we are at the grocery store and gets so excited!)
  • Cheese
  • Raspberries
  • Oranges (which we just tried for the first time this month)
  • Deli turkey
  • Avocado 
  • Black beans
  • Applesauce
  • Bread
  • Blueberries
  • Kiwi
  • Oatmeal

The only thing that I have found so far that he doesn’t like is mashed potatoes. Which is so weird,  who doesn’t like mashed potatoes??

As far as playing goes, his favorite things to play with are his cars and looking at books! He is also really enjoying his new toy car.

   
   
Other than that, Carson would rather play with boxes and open all the cabinets and drawers in our house. He keeps me busy!

Thankfully, carson is still sleeping pretty well at night and sleeps close to 11 or 12 hours. Recently, he has been waking up around 5:30 or 6 and will join us in bed to snuggle until we get up. Carson is starting to get longer naps in and will sometimes nap for up to 2 hours in the afternoon! Which has been so nice!

I have been trying lately to be more intentional about teaching him things and pointing stuff out and saying what it’s called. He knows where mommy’s nose, eyes, and mouth is, but whenever I say “where is Carson’s nose?”, He still points to my nose!

  
Baby sign language has been going good so far and I am currently trying to teach him to sign thank you. He has only done it one time so far, but I’m pretty sure it’s only because we gave  him a taste of ice cream!

Life has finally slowed down a bit now that the holidays are over, but unfortunately we all caught some nasty stomach flu. So we are taking it easy today. I hate seeing my little guy so sick! Hopefully, it is just a 24 hour thing! I took theses pics below this weekend when we were picking all the oranges off the trees in our back yard. Seriously, so many! #comeeatouroranges
