11 Months

Age: 11 months! (and I have yet to order his birthday invites….)Weight: 22 lbs (estimate) Length: 30 inches (estimate) Size: about half 6-12 and half 12-18 month clothes, back to size 4 diapers Eyes: Blue Hair: He finally doesn’t look bald. Teeth: Three! Two bottom, one on top, but i can see white under the gums on the other top three. Sleeping: Bedtime around 6-7pm, wakes up around 6-7am. Really good about sleeping at night as long as he isn’t sick or teething. If he is, he’s up one or two times just to get his nuk back (it drops out of the crib all the time – worst sound it the world: hearing the nuk hit the floor) Naps: Morning nap around 8 or 9 for an hour, afternoon nap around 1 for 1-2 hours. I fear he may be going to just one nap/day soon, (nooooo!), but then there are days like yesterday where he slept a total of 5 hours during the day, so who knows. Eating: Lots. Has a sippy cup with formula 3 times a day, and 3 meals, with 1-2 snacks. Loves grapes lately, and banana. Cheerios and oatmeal with a fruit for breakfast usually. Does not like carrots. (I’ll talk more about what Ephram eats tomorrow!) Movement: Mastering the side step around furniture and can stand unassisted for a few seconds but chooses not to. Milestones: Waving, but not on command, just randomly. Pointing. Loves to point at the ceiling fans and lights. Enjoys turning off the light in his room at bedtime (with my help). Outings: Not many. It’s Winter and it’s cooold. Words/sounds: ‘Itty’ for kitty. First official word. And makes an excited growl/awe sound when he sees something he wants (like daddy’s beer bottle, any cup that isn’t his sippy cup, our food) Memorable moments: I let him sleep in our room one night when he was sick. Took him 45 minutes to fall asleep after tossing and turning. Then woke up at 1am, sat up and started clapping. His first wave towards someone was when Taryn came over for her birthday. When she arrived, not when she left.
