Evan Charles, 11 months
How is your baby doing? (milestones, routine, dr's visits, accomplishments): Evan started walking this past Friday! He has been taking a few steps here and a few steps there for 2 weeks but this Friday he was legitamately walking. He had to be dramatic about it too. His father had been on a business trip for the last week and Evan took his first steps to Daddy as Daddy walked into the house.
Let's see, we are also up to 4 teeth. This is making me want to give up breastfeeding. I won't for another month for sure but ow it hurts when he bites. Speaking of biting he thinks kisses involve teeth. His two favorite people to
are me and the little boy in daycare who is 3 days younger than him. Luckily his parents aren't upset about it.
He almost never gets baby food anymore. Sometimes at daycare when they are serving something I don't want him eating yet. Example, I don't think an 11 month old should be having scones for breakfast.
He babbles a lot but it is almost exclusively Mamamamama or Dadadadada.
He is fascinated with the phone to the point that I can't talk on it in front of him anymore. That made last week with my husband gone really interesting.
Oh yeah, sleep regression coinciding with starting to walk. We were up 3 times last night! Ugh.
He loves the water. The absolute best was taking him in the sprinkler last weekend. He thought it was the best thing ever as evidenced by the maniacal giggle.
The changing table has become a juggling routine. He does not want to stay still at all. Sometimes he will get fascinated with the strap on the changing pad for a minute so that will help but toys don't distract him anymore.
How are you doing?:
I'm exhausted by the sleep regression. My nipples are sore from the biting. My back hurts from the lifting and occasional bad posture while feeding him. But I'm happy. Very, very happy.
Brag a little bit!: Oh, I think I did that up there with the walking thing.( Pictures!Collapse )
