Twelve Months Old Baby Boy – Patriot at One Year

Twelve Months Old Baby Boy - Reminiscing over my favorite moments from the twelve month of our baby boy's life as an expat baby born in Hong Kong

One year! Patriot is one year old! Thank you for letting me share and recap 12 months of joy and love for our little man. I most likely won’t sharing monthly updates (maybe every 6 months instead), but I’ll still be sharing our adventures here and on my Instagram regularly.

Still having 2 naps a day, but fighting his 2nd nap. He is still tired and needs the second nap but he is resisting more than ever. He sleeps best with my boob in bed and is still waking frequently at night for milk/cuddles

Feeding

We made it to one year of breastfeeding! Patriot is still having breastmilk either directly or from a bottle in addition to 3 meals a day.

Happy birthday, Patriot!
