Max is 10 months old today! And he's so active now, it really drains the energy out of mommy and aunty just playing with him. His favorite thing to do before was clapping his hands, now he just likes to grab on the mommy and try to get whatever is in her hand. As soon as mommy picks up a book, a toy, a piece of paper, Max will drop whatever he's doing and come at mommy with full speed, and wants to get a piece of it. Mommy is constantly getting harassed but loving it.
In terms of food for Max, we've cut down on his milk in take to about 21 ounces per day, still 4 feeds, and then 3 meals of solid food. His breakfast usually consist of rice cereal, with fruit, and toast. Lunch and dinner are porridge cooked with meats and veggie, or fish with veggie. Through out the day, we try to give him some fruits and snacks to munch on.
In terms of sleep, mommy decided that it's time that Max learn how to sleep by himself, we started sleep training about 1 week ago and it's gone very well. The first night he cried for about 40 minutes, the second nights, he cried for 20 minutes. And he slept all the way until 6 or 6:15pm. The third day, because mommy wasn't at home to execute it, the maid wasn't sure how to do it, so didn't go so well. Max woke up at 4:30am and cried for 1 hour. The next night, he cried for about 10 minutes, and slept through the night until 6am. Tonight, Max only cried for 5 minutes, which is great, because mommy was thinking how she hates listening to Max cry, even for 10 minutes and almost thought about giving up. But tonight is quite amazing, 5 minutes of some fuss and not-so-loud cries, and Max is sound asleep! What a wonderful present to mommy and daddy!
