Cason - Week 21

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

I don't really have a good way to weigh/measure him each week, nor do I have the time to lay him out to chart this, so we'll just have to do with my best estimate and his monthly, bi-monthly check-ups.

Still in 6-9 month clothes.

Still eating around five times a day and taking three naps a day.

I've started letting Cason fuss a little bit when he wakes up at 5:45 am to eat. He's been waking up at the same time pretty consistently, and I would like him to be able to sleep a full 12 hours (or at least make it a little later before waking up). So, we'll move that way by letting him fuss a little (even if it means we're feeding him 15 minutes later than yesterday) and by only feeding him on one side instead of doing a full feeding.

Eating every 3-4 hours, five times a day.

Still cooing, but he also "gargles" (with a little tone to it) when he's on his back. It's quite funny and even more hilarious when Cannon tries to imitate him.

Guess who's first (AND SECOND) little tooth popped through this week?! I knew all that drooling and chewing was a tooth coming in! Both of his little bottom teeth came through this week, just days apart.

He has started to play with the hanging toys on his bouncer and activity mat. He will grab one and jerk it around and bat them back and forth.


Teething. I think everything is related to teething this week. Teething has made this chill baby mildly cranky this week, but nothing a few cuddles couldn't cure. The other problem with teething so early is Cason doesn't quite have the coordination to hold a teething ring in his mouth yet.

Rolling over in the middle nap time. I put this boy on his tummy for his nap and within a matter of minutes he's flipped himself over and crying because he doesn't want to be on his back. Some days I try to let him work it out himself, but other days I really need a break because both boys are napping, so I just flip him back. 

Health: I think he's also had a mild diaper rash due to teething.


Cason's also discovering his toes and feet. He's even been known to get them into his mouth from time to time.
