Today you are an unbelievable 11 months old. It is literally mind-boggling to me that you are only weeks way from being 1 year old. Which reminds me...I need to get started planning your birthday party! Anywho, this has been an active month for you. So much has happened. The biggest milestone is that you started walking! On October 15th you took your first steps and you haven't stopped! You're getting better and better every day. I have a feeling you'll be running sooner than later.
Your first words were Bye Bye and just recently you started saying Uh Oh. I'm hoping that you'll say Momma soon. You've been jabbering a lot lately so I'm thinking you'll probably be a talker like your big brother.
You had a slow start with food but now you love it! You'll eat just about anything as long as it's not mushed. I'm guessing you have a sensitivity to texture. You also figured out how to use the sippy cup. And if one of us is eating something you fuss until we share with you. You've become quite a demanding little fellow! The spit up shows up occasionally but we're mostly done with it. Hallelujah!
You are still sleeping in bed with me and you are still a horrible sleeper. Unfortunately. You wake up multiple times a night and require nursing in order to go back to sleep. And sometimes that doesn't work. There have been many days that I'm convinced your whole goal in life is to keep me from sleeping! If that's the case, you're doing a fine job! Next month though is Thanksgiving break and the goal of the whole week will be to get you in your own bed. I have to admit that I will miss waking up to your sweet smile and jibber jabber in the mornings.
You are still in size 4 diapers and are wearing 12 month clothes. You're still a bit of a chunk but I think you're leaning out a little bit. That makes me sad. I love all the rolls and fat baby dimples.
You and your big brother are still best buddies although I think JJ is starting to realize that you can get into his things easier now. I love to watch him with you. He is so sweet and loving to you and always calls you buddy. I'm sure you get dozens of hugs and kisses from him daily. I pray you two will always be close.
You are growing too quickly little man. You'll be all grown up before we know it. And I don't even want to think about that.
