Accomplishments Left, Right & Center

I am in a good place. I don’t know if its the fact that the school year is almost over or that the weather has finally warmed up but we are happy in this house. With school starting at 9 AM we are all rolling out of bed around 8:20 and not rushing at all. The mood is relaxed and I am thriving in such a nice environment.

Cyrus is such a big part of that. He is currently exploring his boundaries and there is a lot of times where I am just scratching my head at just HOW much he is changing daily but it is nice to see him grow and be self-sufficient.

Accomplishments Left, Right and Center

Big on our list of accomplishments this month is the ability to get up AND down. For the longest time, he could pull himself up only to cry until someone put him back in the sitting position. This was so annoying so we are all really happy that he has figured out how to make his way down.

Next up is a scary accomplishment but one that I am happy about anyways. Buddy can climb the stairs and do it so quietly that I often lose the kid. He is like a mini ninja and I now have to remember to leave the toilet seat lid down upstairs as it is his favourite place to play.

He is going between the couch and coffee table or was until our dog got stuck under the coffee table and jumped so high the table broke into 3 pieces. Soon enough he is going to start walking but, for now, the little scoots while holding on for dear life are nice to watch.

He is getting more independent by the day and is starting to very clearly show us what he likes, doesn’t, and what he wants more of. When people say to new parents “it get’s better” I think they are talking about this place I am in. It’s so good I could do it again <- I won’t because shop is closed but ya’ know?philips avent natural bottles

Even through all of his growth and accomplishments there is something that stays constant, he is my baby. He has been showing clear favourites when it comes to his bottles at home as well. No longer a fan of a small nipple he prefers the wide, more “breast-like” shape of  the Philips Avent Natural Bottle. As he grows he is eating with more of a fervor, also this kid has some serious chompers and I am happy to take a break from breast feeding when all he wants to do is chew.Philips Avent Natural Bottle

Another thing he is doing quite frequently is falling asleep while drinking his bottle. He doesn’t suffer from colic but it is good to know that this particular Natural Bottle has an anti-colic system with twin valves. They allow the air to go into the bottle and not babies tummies, saving tummies of fussy babies everywhere.

Clean up is a breeze with the Philips Avent line and the Natural bottles are no exception. Only three pieces makes it easy for me to throw into the dishwasher and put back together.
