11 Month Update

Another month has flown by and in 1 more month, we'll be celebrating his birthday.  This month has been so much fun because the little man has really upped his activity level.  However, it has given me two kids to chase after versus one.  Gone are the days of plopping him on the ground surrounded by toys.
 He's still wearing 12-18 month clothes and size 4 diapers.  To be quite honest, we should have moved up to the next size of diapers but I mistakingly ordered a huge box of diapers from Amazon so now we're squeezing them on him, bearing through the blowouts (which don't seem to bother me as much since they almost always seem to fall on Kev's watch).  Poor guy.
He is still drinking 4 bottles a day of 6oz, but his table food consumption has exploded this month.  He eats anything we eat...and has loved almost everything.  Today he ate an entire piece of pizza (don't worry, Mom, I gave him lots of water too).  His favorite thing that I can tell so far is cheese and noodles.  He can't get enough, but he didn't care for canned peaches (sliminess maybe?) and eggs.  He has yet to master the sippy cup (I'm thinking maybe I should try the one with a straw), but he can actually easily drink out of a regular straw (thanks to Momo).  He also can now blow bubbles in his water as well which he thinks is hilarious.

He typically goes to bed at 7pm and wakes up about 6:30 or 7.  He still takes a 2 hour nap morning and afternoon.  2 hour naps make this mamma a happy camper.
His crawling speed has really increased!  He can get places fast, even on the wood floors.  He also stands on his knees to get things.  This kind of surprised me since I found him sucking on a piece of my gum I'd put on the coffee table (wrapper on).  He really didn't understand why he couldn't have that piece of gum.
Love this mischievous little look.
His absolute favorite things to play with lately is the DVD player/surround sound player knobs, remotes, the cover over the fire place, Elliott's little potty (which has now been peed in...sick), and paper.  He is a little stinker and definitely determined to get what he wants.  He still gets really sad when we have to take something away.
This is the best picture I could get with them together.  Ha.
I've found this past month that he and Elliott really egg each other on.  He blows bubbles, it makes her want to blow bubbles.  He touches the DVD and surround sound player, she touches them.  If he eats his food, we can sometimes get that to make her eat her food.  It's interesting to watch.  

When she lays on the ground, he comes and hits her face.  Paybacks.
 Poor guy needs a haircut.  Looking a bit like a mullet these days.
 He still loves to snuggle and loves touching faces.

He got another top tooth and one is on the way.

He still loves playing with balls and loves singing.  He also loves to clap.
Love him so!
