"Stand up, baby stand up!"

We have a stander people! Well, he can pull himself up to a standing position when holding onto something. People, boxes, chairs, shelves, etc. He was doing it by holding on to our hands, but today he started doing it all by himself. Amazing!!!!

Must have been that 3 hour and 15 minute nap he had yesterday morning. Prepping himself for his big day!!! We lowered the crib in preparation on May 26th since I could tell it was only a matter of time!

ha ha how funny the freeze frame is him falling over!

Lochlan has had another busy couple of weeks. He now weighs 13 pounds, 5 3/4 ounces and is 26.5 inches tall!!!! So he's growing better! Although really he's like a pound for every month since he's been born! Oh well. We'll take it!

We met with Dr. Flavin just this past Tuesday when we got him weighed and measured. Dr. Flavin is in simple terms, his lung doctor. Lochlan no longer requires his puffers!! zip nadda, zilch!! We finally stopped his Flovent that he was getting. (a puff in the morning, and a puff at night) LOOOONG way from the 2 puffs of Ventolin, 2 puffs of Atrovent, and 3 puffs of Flovent 3 times a day that he was getting in the beginning)

We will have to start the Flovent again September 1st in prep of cold/flu season I'm guessing. He didn't really say but that's what I'm assuming anyway. And if he does get a cold to give him 2 puffs of Flovent morning and night and Ventolin as needed. So we'll always have them nearby.

But that's good enough for me!

He got his fourth tooth (his top middle left) at exactly 13 months old. (June 5th)and the others are not far behind I think!

He started feeding himself more than just puffs too! Abby had given him a Shreddie and I freaked out at first but then took a breath and just watched...he ate the darn thing!!! (I still had a talk with her!!) So I decided to try giving him some bread pieces and banana. He loved it! Now he eats pretty much anything! Ham, strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, pears, cheese...some of the fruits are a bit tough for him to pick up so I have to help him but he loves it!! And it's such a nice break and gives me a minute to prep his cereal or other food or even eat myself!! (or get a few dishes done too!)

What a difference a few weeks can make!!!

I always think of a million things to blog about and then when I finally have a free moment or two, I forget what I wanted to say!! I should write myself notes!!!!

We went swimming last week for the first time in our pool! The heater is broken for some strange reason so it was a wee bit chilly. The first time, Lochlan cried and clung to Rob for dear life. A few days later it was a little warmer (78 I think) and he was happy! It worked out that I took him when Abby was napping, and then when he went for a nap, I took Abby! She LOVES to swim!! So I'm hoping that he will too! I had taken Loch swimming for the very first time on his birthday at one of the local pools and he wasn't a fan at all. Or if he was he didn't indicate it. We have all summer to get him used to it though. Really hoping it's a easy and inexpensive fix for the heater. I know most people don't have heaters and the pools are warm but we don't have much sun in our backyard. So today for instance, it was 72. And I find that chilly!!! I remember as a kid swimming in like 64 degrees but I'm not a kid and need my pool to be mid 80s preferably!!

Lochlan has also been loving getting into everything these days. He has a ball playing in Abby's room. She has a princess tent and he loves to go in and out of it. Today he was playing "peekaboo" funny!

And yesterday Abby took her "babe" for a walk in the stroller around the neighbourhood. And tonight she had to give her a bath and put her to bed. So cute! So I'm thinking that might be a good distraction for those nights I'm trying to get Lochlan into bed and she's right there and not helping the situation if you know what I mean!!!

And we went for a walk in the afternoon with Lochlan. This is too cute not to share!!
