Eleven Months

Eleven months today! My baby is almost one and almost a toddler. It is so bittersweet. I love watching him grow and learn, but sometimes I just wish I could freeze time. Everyone is asking if he is walking yet and the answer is no. Charles and I are in no rush for this to happen. He is still crawling like crazy and so fast. Charles made him a tunnel out of cardboard boxes and he loves it. He is pulling up and standing. He really likes standing at his activity center and playing. 

Nightime sleeping is going well again. We haven't had any more wake ups lately. Naps are still out of control. You never know what you are going to get. Yesterday we had a 15 minute morning nap and a 2 hour afternoon nap that had a 20 minute intermission. I have decided to accept the fact that this is not something I can control and just roll with it. This is so hard for me! 

Wills now has 4 teeth. Two on top and two on bottom. There is quite a large gap between the top two. He might be sporting a gap like his mommy did. We will just have to wait and see. Now that we have all these teeth, we eat like a big boy. The amount this kid can eat is astonishing. We actually had the exact same thing for breakfast this morning, except he had milk to drink with his and I just had water! We have become a little more flexible with what he eats when we go out. I have realized that I will probably always be packing him a vegetable and a fruit since for some reason these are really difficult to find a most restaurants. Finding meat and bread is super easy though. He had duck last night and steak tonight. Loved them both. He is definitely not a vegetarian! We quit using bottles this month and now he only uses sippy cups. He was super unhappy the first time we tried this, but we worked through it. He also decided this week he no longer needed formula right before bed. I am so thankful he did this on his own. It has really shortened his bedtime routine, so I think we are going to have to read a few books now to allow us some extra quality time before bed.
