Wills turned 11 months old last Saturday! I can’t believe we are a month away from a year. I am busy planning his 1st birthday party full of choo choo trains!
Not too much has changed from 10 months. He is still on the go, crawling on his knees, and pulling up on everything. He will let go and can stand for a few seconds on his own. It won’t be long until he’s taking those first steps. He is still a dancing machine. This boy has rhythm! He is becoming more distinct in his sounds of mama and dada. He seems to be more aware of who he is talking to when he babbles this. He yells at the dogs, which is pretty hilarious. If they are barking or being rambunctious he clearly mimics what we tell them while pointing to them. He also loves to be upside down. He puts his head down on the floor or on us waiting for you to lift his legs in the air. He does this over and over and over again. As soon as we say the word upside down, his head goes down and he waits for us to lift his feet.
He wears size 24 months, size 4 diapers and size 5 shoes. He is sleeping from 7:30 at night until about 6:30 in the morning. We are starting to add whole milk to his formula to help the transition. He is still drinking milk three times a day, but two of the times (usually) are out of a soft tip sippy cup which makes me sad that he is growing up. But, he still gets a bottle before bedtime.
He’s getting a little picky with his eating. I’ve added ketchup to a few things and that seems to work for now.
He starts Mother’s Day Out this week. I am really excited (and a little emotional) about this step. I can’t wait to hear how he interacts with other children and away from us. He is such a happy boy, and doesn’t seem to have any attachment issues so far, so I am optimistic that he will transition perfectly into this new environment.
