11 Months

I can't believe my teeny, tiny baby is 11 months old!! He is getting so big! I feel like every month I think "this is my favorite time" and each month I say it again. As he grows and gets older, he is becoming so fun and adventurous. His personality is really starting to come through and we love it!
Here's a snap shot of where we are at now:
-he is wearing size 12 months in clothes
-size 4 diapers
-eats 3 8oz bottles a day, one in the morning, one mid-day, and one at night
-he is not getting the sippy cup down very well.  He likes to tip it over or throw it and say "uh oh". I'm a bit worried about how the transition from bottles to sippy cups will go. Eek!
-he eats like a pig! He seems to love everything from chicken nuggets to grilled cheese to fried okra and pineapple
-he is walking with a push toy and cruises everywhere. He cries when he falls down because he wants back up to walk.  He is also pulling up on everything.
-he can say "mama" "dada" "uh oh" and "bye bye" (while waving). He loves to jabber, but we aren't quite sure what he is saying. He sometimes loves to just yell out loud which is hilarious
-he still loves balls and any toys he can bang together
-he is still very shy in large crowds or new places. Once he warms up though, he is his happy sweet self
-he sleeps all night long in his crib. He goes to bed between 7-8 and if we don't wake him up for school he sleeps until about 8am
-he loves taking baths and cries when we pull him out
He is amazing. We just love him to death and we have had the best time with him. I look forward to every minute we get to spend together!
