11 Months

Holy cow, we officially have less than a month until my sweet baby is ONE.  I want to cry just thinking about it! 

Month 10 was a busy one for our little dude.  Lots and lots of new things for him!

He took his first steps!  It was every working mom's nightmare though - they were at daycare.  I could tell the sitter didn't want to tell me.  But, she did.  I got in my car and burst into tears.  He's been steadily taking steps here and there, but still has zero interest in walking full time.  He's decided that crawling is faster and more efficient.
He's also saying several new words.  He says HI clear as a bell.  And says it all the time.  It's so cute.  He now will even wave while he does it.  He also says dog.  Well, he says "dah!" but is always near the dogs or looking at them when he says it.  It's adorable.

And, we are paci free!!!!  I've been tossing the idea around for a long time.  Several months ago, I noticed that he mostly just played with it and only used it for sleeping.  However, the old (awful) sitter insisted that we keep using it.  Plus, it helps prevent SIDS, so I just kept it.  My goal was to start weaning him from it at a year.  Well the new sitter said she preferred not to use pacis (music to my ears!) and she said he was going down for naps just fine without it.  So, I decided to try it at night without it.  After a few rocky cry it out nights, we had success!  He's now been without it for about 3 weeks.

He's still eating 3 meals a day and taking only 4 5 oz bottles.  Only one more month of formula!!  Woo Hoo!!!!  I can't tell you how excited this makes me!  We've been really working with the straw sippy cups, so I don't think the transition from a bottle to a cup should be too hard.  He's usually a pretty adaptable kiddo.

He still loves tubby (bath) time, and playing, and dancing.  He loves the sound of his own voice and talks and yells all the time.  He cracks us up so much.  He's really just the cutest little guy on the planet.

His only dislikes are being pinned down for diaper changes and getting dressed.  He's far too busy for such trivial things.

The weather was amazing here this weekend, so we were very busy out and about enjoying it.  Here are a few pics of my sweet little boo enjoying it!

I love dressing him like a little man.  This outfit made me happy

We spent the afternoon at the park with his baby bestie Landon yesterday

Well, clearly it wasn't all sunshine and happiness.  He was a very sad panda for most of yesterday

My sweet little boo,

Your daddy and I love you so much we can't even stand it!  You are so funny and smart and curious.  You always keep us on our toes.  We love just watching you play and learn and explore.

We love you so much!
