This has been a big month for Abe. He FINALLY started walking, yay!!! He's also started giving lip smacking kisses (so sweet) and is obsessed with us reading to him, whereas before he would just flip through the pages. In order to get ready for the new baby we just transitioned him over to his big boy bed (full size) and so far he's done great, but it's only been two nights and Cohen is sick so I'm sure in the next couple days we'll start seeing them get out of bed to play together.
A few pics:
Abe in Carmel a couple weeks ago
Him on his new bed this morning & in a dinosaur costume
^in that last one he has raspberries on his mouth, not a cold sore
He is so cute! You can definitely tell Cohen and Abe are brothers, but it's cool that they each have very different looks. His hair is so light.
That's great he started walking. It looks like he's running in that first pic .
What did he think of you putting him in the big bed? Did he have trouble settling down? We go back and forth between wanting to make the switch, but haven't had a chance yet. It must be nice that he can see Cohen sleeping in a real bed as an example. I bet that helps.
Monica, I was much more nervous when we switched Cohen because his nap time was always in his crib. Abe, on the other hand, has spent months napping in my bed or Cohen's so he was used to the bigger bed. He balls himself up in the top corner where the two walls meet and pretty much stays there. It's only been two nights, but he has stayed put so far and cries himself to sleep (for like 5 minutes) which is what he was doing in his crib too. I think the crying is out of protest for not wanting to go to sleep.
When we switched Cohen we had him start by taking naps on his new bed to help him get excited. We would also play on the bed and read books there during the day. I think we did that about a week and then made the transition to night.
Jennifer, until recently when we have asked Abe to give us a kiss he would just turn his cheek to us and let us kiss him, or completely ignore us
Nicole, Abe is such a stinker!!! I swear he is the most difficult little thing ever. I would have loved for him to start walking earlier because now I can get a break every once in a while. Before the kid was always stuck to me or screaming his head off. He barely talks too, more like grunts to get what he wants The only really clear thing he says is Dora.
