Yes, I know I am a few days late for this, but I have had so many exciting things happening, I had just forgotten to write a blog post on Ahmad 13 month update.
Ahmad is walking very well now. Hardly ever falls or trips. He is for sure trying to talk, sometimes I think I kind of get what he is trying to say, but other times it is a just a jumble of sounds. He very clearly says "Done" and a few other words, that I am not sure are of coincidence or, if he actually knows what he is saying.
He now loves looking at books. Sometimes I will find him just sitting in the living room floor flipping through his baby books. Absolutely heart warming.
These past few days he has been very clingy. Wanting me to hold him the majority of the time, must be a phase he going through.
It seems he pretty much understands what I say to him. So I think it is a good time to start teaching him the proper way to act.
Oh, and the few times he has went on the potty, I let him close the bathroom door. Maybe it makes him feel big, but he just loves to do it.
He is quite the helper as well. Whenever I do laundry, I will give him some wet clothes to put in the dryer. Or when I am sweeping he holds the dust pan until I need it. He is also starting to learn to put his toys away. Ahhh, why did my baby have to grow so fast?
I am not 100% sure, but I think he maybe lactose intolerant. Since I have had him on cows milk, his bowels have been very loose and 5-6 times a day. I will have to ask his Pediatrician about this on his next DRs appointment.
Ahmad is also becoming choosy with his foods. He just doesn't eat everything now. He doesn't care for broccoli, eggs, and the laughing cow cheese. I have noticed that he loves the more "carb" things, such as bread, bread, and more bread. LOL
