Baby Checklist. Month 9 Week 4
1. Baby’s vocabulary is growing! fredi knows several words, and I can understand when fredi says them (although I may be the only one who understands).
2. Dance party time! I’m putting on music so baby and I can dance together. fredi loves learning motions to songs like Itsy-bitsy spider.
3. I feel like I’m really getting to know my baby’s personality! I’m noticing how different fredi is from other babies his age — maybe fredi is much more friendly, or maybe fredi is a lot more shy, but fredi definitely has his own opinions and personality.

4. I’m careful to lift baby with my knees, not my back, so I don’t strain my back. A back injury would be a real problem when fredi wants to be held so often!
5. Baby can sit up and balance well without any help.
6. Now seems like a good time to take some fun pictures of baby in different situations. I’m looking through for some good ideas!
7. Baby has started eating a lot less. This seems strange, since fredi is getting bigger, but it’s actually normal — fredi isn’t growing as fast, so fredi doesn’t need as much food. As long as fredi’s diapers are normal and fredi has plenty of energy, fredi is probably fine!

Baby Checklist. Month 6 Week 3
1. Baby is starting to really express fredi’s feelings! fredi imitates my facial expressions when I’m sad or happy, and fredi shows her own feelings on her face. I try to use words to express what I think fredi is feeling and validate it.
2. I got a baby food masher. Baby is ready to eat thicker purees now, so I can make my own baby food by quickly mashing vegetables that I steamed for myself and my partner to eat.
3. Baby’s separation anxiety is in full swing! I can hardly step out of the room without fredi crying. I still have to leave sometimes, but I make sure baby has eaten and had a good nap before I leave so fredi is less likely to get upset.

4. My house is dirty, and I don’t care. I’m letting go of chores this week so I can focus on baby and enjoy all the new skills fredi is learning.
5. I’ve scheduled some time this week for me to work on a hobby. It might be something I used to do that I haven’t done in a while, or it might be something new I want to learn.
6. I’m eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. This is partly for my own health, but it’s also because baby wants to eat everything I do, so I’m trying to set a good example!
7. Running is getting hard on my feet and ankles, so I’m alternating with swimming laps for my workout.
