Oh boy, how time flies!!
November came and went in 2 seconds, I swear!
…And I missed to post 10-month update. Oops.
But I’ll make it up to you with lots of pictures of our little boy! He’s truly less of a baby and more toddler nowadays, who loves to drive scooters with daddy…
It was ridiculously warm November here in North Dakota. We tried to enjoy it to fullest, going on walks, being out and about on the ranch, playing on playground, and soaking up all the sun!
And now we’re trapped inside all day every day, because is super cold out. We’re talking piles of snow everywhere and below zero temps! Brrr…
He was NOT impressed by snow at all. His first reaction was like meh… 🙂
In November, we had some rough times… We went through separation anxiety, teething (4 upper teeth cut through all at the same time), and because of that he was fighting naps and extra clingy. BUT it’s all behind us now. It lasted only for a week or so, and now he’s back to his normal schedule and happy self.
- Grant’s cruising around all over… around furniture or with his walker and super fast at it too. I have a feeling he’ll be walking pretty soon.
- Daddy taught him how to crawl down the couch! We don’t leave him on the couch unsupervised though. But we’re confident that he can safely get down from the couch all by himself. It’s unbelievable how smart he is. He understands everything!
- Speaking of which… Did I ever tell you that we’re raising him bilingual? Or maybe even trilingual?? I speak to him exclusively in Mongolian, and Garrat speaks only in English. It’s called “one parent, one language” method. And of course, we speak english when we’re all together. Sometimes, I speak to him in Russian and sing him Russian songs… So, the other day I asked Grant if he’s hungry and wants to eat (in Mongolian), and in response he moved his mouth, pretending he’s chewing!! Oh my gosh, the cutest thing ever!! Oh and he loves to play peekaboo any chance he gets. So fun!
- He doesn’t like chunky food, but absolutely loves steak. Hmm, wonder why? 😉 Eggs, oranges, banana, apples, M&Ms, fruit purees are among the things he loves! Do you see a trend here? Not a huge fan of veggies, and all of a sudden, he doesn’t like sweet potato too. At least, he likes beef, chicken, and any type of protein.
And now cuteness overload…
Thanks so much for reading.
