On Monday, our friends JP & Lisa came to visit with their son Jonathan for a little cookout. Jonathan was born 7 weeks after Jameson, so he’s one of the closest friends in age to Jameson. Jonathan was also born 4 weeks premature. Look at him now! He is almost 2 months younger and he and Jameson are the same size!
(For the record, we did not dress them alike on purpose, but how cute!)
(And I really can’t wait for our new couches…)
Which just makes me wonder about how different babies are. Jonathan from what I gather is a voracious eater. Jameson is just.. ho hum. I’m pretty sure from day 1 that unless he was starving, Jameson has never been super interested in eating.
Take our solid food trials… I have read that breastfed babies can wait until 6 months old to start eating solids, but my old co-worker’s son who is exactly Jameson’s age started early (he is formula fed, just for reference) so we just couldn’t wait to get started ourselves. We did however wait until he was 4-1/2 months old, after we got the doctors go ahead.
And flop. Some days are good, some days are bad. It took about 3 weeks for Jameson to get the hang of opening his mouth for the spoon. I mean he just finally got it recently. And some days are still just bad. I just talked about his love for carrots and what do you know, last night he wasn’t having any of it.
I am speculating again, and we all know that speculating really just gets us no where, but I am just dying to know what’s going through that little baby brain of his. Is it the teething? Was he just too tired? We are still putting him to bed between 8-8:30 most nights, and it’ll vary depending on his nap schedule at daycare, so we do have him go down for an evening nap that we usually have to wake him up from. Ugh. I don’t know.
His 6 month appointment is approaching at the end of this month, so I will be very interested to know where he lies on the percentile scale. Oh well! At least he and Jonathan make good pictures together.
