Joey's 13 month update

Joey is now 13 months old, it feels like his 1st birthday was ages ago! This month has seen so many changes in Joey it's unbelieveable.

I'm not exactly sure how many teeth Joey has but I'm guessing it's 9 or 10 now. This past week Joey's teeth have been bothering him and he hardly let's me near his mouth. Two back teeth are coming through and his hand is constantly in his mouth.

Because of his teething Joey's sleep at night is somewhat all over the place and also because of the hot weather he's been going to get later. So recently we've only been taking him upstairs at 8pm and sometimes doesn't settle until gone 9pm. He then might wake up once or twice during the night and then wakes up at about 7am.

He's now completely on cows milk, and has been on it for about 3 weeks. I think he can tell the difference as sometimes he pushes it away. He's still having 3 5oz bottles a day and then 3oz bottle at bedtime. I know he should be on just 2 beakers of milk a day but with his teething I'll just stick to what he's on at the moment. In terms of food he pretty much eats anything we give him, recently he has started to like tomatoes, peppers and strawberries.

Since last months update Joey has come on leaps and bounds. He pulls himself up and cruising around the front room, he's so fast it's scary. His crawling is very weird, it's more like a bum shuffle but he still gets to where he wants to go. I'm hoping he'll be walking way before Christmas. He also chatters to himself quite a lot which is funny, it sounds like he's actually saying things. 

Joey has really changed over the past month, he's a lot more independent and doesn't need me as much which is sad. I can't wait for the next few months.

Thanks for reading


  1. He is doing so well! I hope that both you and him aren't struggling too much with the teething. I'm not looking forward to that stage!

    1. Thanks Leanne. He was pretty bad last night, screaming his head off in pain and then fell asleep on my chest. He slept through though until 6.30 x
