11 months & Graduation!! :)

Checking out our snowfall yesterday!

Height: Not sure... haven't checked

Weight: According to our bathroom scale, just under 25 pounds

Clothes: Can still squeeze into a few remaining 12 month shirts, but mostly 12-18 months. Almost 24 month pants thanks to the cloth diapers, haha.

Some of his stats:

Health - Healthy boy here! C has 3 teeth now; the first one popped through right a week before he turned 10 months. The third was a little over a week ago.

Food - Still loving bananas, sweet potatoes and applesauce. He has no problem gobbling down chicken, avocado, butternut squash, beef, salmon and now liver. Next up might be bacon in the meat category. :-D He also had a bit of my asparagus soup one morning. He was looking longingly at my bowl after he finished his banana. :-)

Sleep - Much better these days. He's sleeping through the night, though usually wakes up 1-2 (or 3, poor baby) times, but gets himself back to sleep. Sometimes he fusses more than others. If he's really fussing, DH or I will go in and pat him, or rock him back to sleep. Naps are for the most part great. He sometimes sleeps in his crib, but most often in our bed. For some reason, he usually takes longer naps there - close to 2, sometimes even 2 1/2 hours for both morning and afternoon. I usually lie down with him to help him fall asleep. I'm really trying to make sure we're home during his regular naptime. Since he wakes up before 6:30, we're usually going to 6:30 am Mass. We were going to noon for a bit, but he was getting really vocal then. Singing... praying... whatever he did, it was loud. :)

Milestones so far
Solid butt-scooting. :) And some walking!!!!!!!!! He doesn't have any idea that he's taking steps without holding on to anything, but this morning he had a few consecutive steps 3 times! I am excited/scared/sad at the same time. My baby is growing up!!!!
He loves to "conduct" - DH or I will start singing and when he waves his arms, we sing, and stop when he stops waving his arms. It is super funny. We did it when DH's parents were here this weekend. He had a full choir at his disposal, haha. :)
He still loves playing the piano - and walks himself over by holding onto various furniture in the living room to get there. He's discovered that he can open drawers and cabinets - the drawers of his dresser, and one of the drawers in the kitchen which, fortunately, only has kitchen towels in it. And he's opening cabinets- his favorite is the one with all our pans... he'll be cooking in no time. :) And now we have the outlets covered and the cabinets that he shouldn't get into fastened.

And lastly.... today was C's Graduation from wearing the DocBand!!! Yay!!!!!

Here he is, right before we left for his appointment:

Freedom!!! :)

Every graduate needs a cool hat, right?

You did it, Baby!! 

And we have to try this one on... to be ready for tonight's game!

Daddy and I love you so much, sweet boy!! Happy 11 months!!!!


  1. He is so stinking cute! I love that sweet little smile! :)

  2. He is so precious. I cannot believe it's been 11 months!!!

  3. So cute. For me 11 months was so sad for each of my kids because I knew they would be a year old before I blinked again...

    Congratulations on graduation C.

  4. Oh he is so handsome!!! That smile melts my heart! :)

  5. Congratulations on your graduation Baby!!!

  6. Heavens - time flies! It seems like you brought him home a few weeks ago! Has he been exposed to a lot of conductors, or did he come up with the idea on his own? (I see a future career here, especially if he has early music lessons, which I assume he will...)

    Oh yeah and...HAPPY EASTER!!

  7. C is so cute! I love the graduation cap! Congratulations C!!! Walking already...wow! Elizabeth has only taken one or two steps unassisted and she is 15 months, C is doing awesome!
