How can it be?
-As seen above in your big grin, in the past 2 weeks, your 2 front teeth came in!
– On certain days, usually if we’re busy and out, you seem to be napping later and dropping your 2nd nap with an earlier bedtime of 6:30-7pm. At the same time, your 1st nap has extended to 3-4 hours! The days you just can’t quite make it, you’ll take a 45-60 minute 2nd nap and go down a bit later (8-8:30) but either way, you sleep so well, day and night! Thank you my easy boy!
-Right around the 10 1/2 month mark, you showed signs of baby-led weaning. I’m sure I could’ve “worked through the struggles” (ie: biting and playing) to continue nursing for another 6 weeks, but I was more than ready to move on at your lead (& your big heavy body was not exactly comfortable on my growing belly) You made the switch to formula and now Vitamin D milk without a single problem and you’ll take it in a bottle or sippy cup. Maybe Avent will offer you a job modelling their products?! 😉 hehe
-In the past week, you’ve been taking little steps (2-3) but I would call yesterday your official 1st day of walking (5-6 steps before getting on all 4s) and today, you surprised me by doubling that (10-11 steps) several times! So exciting and sad all at the same time. Goodbye baby, hello toddler!
-You are really starting to show your “boyness”, throwing,
hitting, banging anything on anything that makes noise, (the louder the better), yelling at your sisters when they take something away (either at my request or just because they can), or head butting daddy and then belly laughing rather than balling your eyes out like the girls would do. You are fast and strong. I’m not sure why but something tells me you’re gonna be 1 tough guy, inside and out! 😉
-You still have that very serious side to you but at the same time, you are oh, so sweet and such a joyful soul!
The many faces of our little man…
Happy Birthday my handsome prince! Your daddy, sisters and I love you oh so much!!!
