Another month, so so late! Ugh, this month Nolan did NOT want to cooperate with pictures… so it is what it is. And SO much has changed in just the two weeks since he’s turned 11 months, so I’m going to be writing this as of what he could do when he turned 11 months.
Sleep has gotten a lot better, he’s back down to one or two wakeups (typically 2) but we’re both feeling a lot more rested because of it. Naps are great, he really loves his naps during the day and will solidly take two 1.5 hour naps a day.
Food is really hit or miss with him right now… He will eat great one day then hate that food the next. The only real staple in his diet right now is cheese. Luckily I am able to still force feed him the sneaky veggie purees so I know he’s getting a mostly well rounded diet. And he is still nursing quite a bit during the day and he isn’t getting skinny, so I don’t think he’s lacking nutrients. haha
He is still mostly refusing to say Mama. He will gladly say “Da-da” though and I’m pretty sure he is also trying to say “dog” but it sounds a lot like “da-da” still. But he says it a lot when Blue comes near him. He still absolutely LOVES Blue.
Mobility wise, he is crawling like a big boy about 80% of the time now, army crawling is getting to be a thing of the past, and he is getting QUICK! He loves to take his walking toy and “go walking” around the living room, and he’s getting braver and starting to carry toys around while he does it, it won’t be long before he’s walking… Thankfully he’s too chicken right now, but I totally think he could.
He is still such a comedian. Not a day goes by where he doesn’t make me laugh so hard I cry. He’s a goofball and he knows it. He loves to make us laugh. His favorite thing currently is gasping, trying to talk while gasping is even more fun. He still likes to hit himself in the head so Mommy says “stop hitting yourself”, he thinks it’s hilarious. He also thinks feeding the dog his dinner is hilarious… Mommy does not.
The toddler attitude is starting to come out in full force, which I am not looking forward to. He now throws tantrums, full on red faced, throwing his head back ones. Which made getting these pictures difficult. haha
Through it all though, he really is a great baby. And I’m starting to get so emotional about him growing up. This year has gone by SO FAST. It really feels like we just brought him home a month ago. My sweet baby boy will be ONE soon. I can’t even think about it.
