Beckett James, Month 11

Oh sweet Beckett!! 11 months!! Last year at this time I was waddling around the apple orchards waiting for you to make your arrival. Every day I was sure that “today was the day”. Your sisters came early and so would you. Boy, was I wrong. IMG_1307

You have definitely proven to be different from your sisters. At 11 months, you are already a wild man with a mind of your own. You keep us moving all day (and night) long. But, we are all enjoying it so much and can’t believe how fast this year is flying by.

Likes: Right now your favorite thing to do is ride around in Lucy’s little pink car. You will sit there for a long time as we walk up and down the driveway. You watch Lucy zip around on her bike and I think in your mind you’re doing the same thing.

You also love crawling over to the refrigerator and pulling off the bottom part. Not sure what you’re thinking but it’s the first thing you do when we put you down on the kitchen floor

You still spend a ton of time out on the swings and have been loving your daily walks in the stroller. You spend a lot of time playing with your toys, looking through books and emptying the cabinets.

Dislikes: there aren’t too many things that bother you right now except when we try to move you away from something we think is too dangerous. You’ve been really happy and easy going lately.

Sleeping: I don’t even want to jinx this but I know I’ll want to look back and remember how you FINALLY started sleeping though the night. I think it’s the combination of only one nap (2 hours in the morning) and all of the fresh air that you’re getting.

Eating: EVERY THING! You are still nursing when you wake up, a few quick nursing sessions through out the day (you don’t like to sit still long) and when I put you to sleep. You are eating all of the same table foods that we are and only have one of your pouches if we’re out somewhere and you need a quick snack.

Wearing: 12 month clothing, size 2 FP and size 3 diapers

Milestones: You are walking along the furniture now. You have started letting go while standing up (but almost immediately fall down). You say mama, dada, baba, dah (Daisy or dog) and hi. You actually say hi whenever anyone walks in the room or walks by you in a store. You have become such a flirt with all of the girl’s friends and women you see while we’re out shopping. You shake your hear no when you don’t want something. You wave hi and bye and clap your hands. You have started sharing toys when asked too. Such a good boy!

You give some pretty fantastic hugs too and I love when someone catches them for me
