Briggs 47 weeks…

Briggs 47 weeks

Those high pitch squeals are real pleasant during our family dinners. Other times I can usually tune them out, but not at dinner.  It’s his way of saying… Gimme, Gimme. I need, I need. Give him more food!

Briggs 46 weeks…

Although the rest of the kids enjoyed our impromptu trip up north to find snow – Briggs did not. At all. Perhaps it was the snow pants. Or the boots. Or the hat. Its hard to say what it was exactly, but he cried the majority of the time. We tried setting him on the sled. We tried putting him in the carseat. Unfortunately – he was happiest being held. Clearly, he was made for Arizona!

Briggs 45 weeks…

He’s got two teeth and by the way he’s been acting this week, I’m sure he’s got two more coming! With two teeth in that little mouth, he has been devouring food. I love the stage when they start to eat table foods more than they eat baby foods. He’s got some staples: bread, bananas, rice chex, cheerios, veggie straws, black beans and ritz crackers. He’s still coming around to avocados and northern beans. We finally got him taking a transitional sippy cup (he refuses the bottle) which means the weaning process can begin. Oh happy day!

Briggs 44 weeks…

He’s 10 months old and tipping the scale at 16 lbs. He’s not our biggest baby, that’s for sure. But when I’m packing him around, I’m okay he’s a lightweight. He’s built just like Hunter as a baby and he loves food. We introduced him to black beans this week and he devoured them. He also finally caught on to the sippy cup concept which means the weaning process can begin. Oh happy day.

Baby’s first Christmas…

He’s 10 months old and had his first Christmas. Fortunately, he had no interest in the tree and never tried playing with the ornaments. We purposely didn’t put out any gifts – although judging by his Christmas morning, I’m not sure he would’ve touched them anyway. We’ve had three fall babies – which means they all slept through their first Christmas. And then we have two spring babies who were old enough to be awake – but still not old enough to get it. Briggs was just old enough to crawl around and mess up his siblings piles! And when he wasn’t playing King Kong, he wanted to be held.

This is his, “I’m done being cute” face. Is it nap time yet?

And for comparison sake here’s a couple photos of baby’s first Christmas.

I wish more than anything I could squish Briggs’ long and lean body into this Christmas sleeper, but I think it might be considered torture!
