Name things: AMAZING.

Personality-wise Fox sounds very much like Kit, and I'd love to introduce them (maybe at Readercon?). Height-wise too. Expect to need a new carseat at around 15 months. I recommend the Diono Radian RXT or another seat with very high height/weight limits for rear-facing. Not that I have been doing a lot of research into this for our 95th percentile monster or anything.

I'm sure you are already aware of this, but IME it bears repeating: anyone who's new to caring for your kid should be reminded to treat them as their calendar age and not as the age they appear to be. We expect to go through this with every teacher and babysitter Kit ever has until they're old enough to remind people about it themselves.

The sleep will improve again, and you're exactly right about the cause.

Oh—in case your pediatrician hasn't told you, recommendations on allergens have changed recently, and four to six months is the ideal age for giving the baby at least small quantities of common ones so their immune system learns to recognize them as food rather than as danger danger danger. (If food allergies don't run in your family you can be a lot less fussy about this than we were.) We mostly mixed/mashed things up with formula and made sure Kit ingested at least a taste. They still hate non-mush solid foods, but we've been periodically giving them little smears of peanut butter to maintain immunity, as it were.
