Boston's 11 Month Update

I can't believe my baby is 11 months and just a few weeks away from being considered a toddler. I think I say this every month but where in the world has the time gone? I feel like it was just yesterday when I got to hear his little heart beating for the first time and now he is all over the place, can pretty much feed himself, and is gaining so much personality and independence every single day. Sometimes me and D just sit back, watch him play and laugh. I don't think I have ever smiled more in my life. He is our world and we have really enjoyed watching him grow.

Weight:
23.5lbs I feel like he is getting long and lean which kinda makes me sad. I love his baby chub and I feel like each day he looks more and more like a toddler.

Teeth:
He has a new tooth at the bottom so a total of 7 now! And he has been an emotional wreck the last couple of days so I have a feeling that number 8 isn't too far behind.

Words:
He says "Mama", "Dada", "Bye, Bye", "Wow", "Mmmmm" (not exactly a word but he says it when he wants your food ;P) and he has said "Light" a couple of times and we were all shocked both times. He has a fascination with lights lately and each time he points to one we say "Light!" so he must have picked it up from that.

Favorite Things:
He is still loving some of his past favs...
And a few new things…
- Puffs. So he has liked these for a while and for whatever reason I never put them on the list but these suckers are a life saver when I need a few minutes of him being occupied.
- Lights. Oh my goodness this guy is so funny. Any time was pass a light in the house he throws his head back and tries his hardest to reach it. Dustin swears that one day he will be an electrician.
- Foam Puzzle Floor. I SWORE I would never put these things in our house but just like so many things lately, I am eating my words. We have pretty much all hardwood in the downstairs and after a few falls, head bonks, and meltdowns we gave in and they have been a lifesaver. I also think it's easier on his knees when is crawls and he loves taking the letters out and using them as teethers too. It serves many purposes. ;D
- Straws. He loves drinking from my drinks but won't drink from a sippy cup so I have ordered a few of these cups with straws to see if he will use them instead.
- Dirty Shoes. Electric Outlets. Fireplaces. Candles. Basically anything else he shouldn't be getting into.

Dislikes:
- Car rides. He used to be so good in the car but lately it has been a whole other story. I pretty much have to reach back and rub his cheek or hold his hand the whole time I drive but it is really sweet that he likes me comforting him so I normally don't mind it at all.... That is until my arm goes numb. But I feel this is another thing I will look back on and miss once he is too old to want to hold mama's hand in the car so for now I will deal with the numb arm and try and enjoy every minute.

Milestones: 
- He is so mobile now. He has graduated from the army crawl to a regular crawl and boy is he quick! He has also learned how to use his walker toys and loves cruising around the house.
- He got his first official haircut a few days ago! We did have to bribe him with a sucker though but hey you do what you got to do, right!
 
Mid gator roll... ;P
And probably the most "real" photo of him at this stage... He is all over the place and all he wants to do is climb around on me or really anything around him. These pics get harder and harder each month and I honestly doubt I will do them if and when baby number 2 comes along. Ha!

  2. Your little guy is too cute!!! And I totally have always swore I won't have one of the foam mats but I see myself retracting that statement the second I have my own clumsy little running around :)

    1. Girl, I have never eaten this many words before becoming a mom. We all do have to do a little back peddling every once in a while. ;P
