11 Months

Hudson, you are 11 months old today!
You weigh 21.2 pounds

You wear 6-12 month clothes, but we are about ready to move to 12 month. Your pants are getting too short!

You wear a size 3 diaper.

You are a very good eater! You are totally off of baby food. You hate being fed with a spoon or fork and only want to eat with your fingers. You especially love bread right now, but aren't too picky yet. Right now you eat cheerios for breakfast (and often have a banana too), you love turkey for lunch, and eat whatever we are eating for dinner. You mostly eat fruits and vegetables and breads and a small amount of meat (you don't need that much right now).

You love to drink water out of your sippy cup and are still getting acquainted with juice. You drink about 5 bottles throughout the day and then 2 smaller ones in the night/early morning.

I never know what to say about your sleeping habits, because every week they seem to change. The fact is that you are really just not into sleeping because you have too much to do. You fight it and have to have a bottle to go to sleep. I'm afraid of what will happen when we take it away soon...You take about 2 naps a day, but they always vary in length. You go to bed at 8pm and you are up and ready to start your day at 6:30.

You have 8 teeth and we are waiting on some more! You are drooling and chomping on everything! You love to chew things with your teeth and your smile is so sweet.

You babble so much, but your favorite thing to say is "dada." We occasionally get "ma" and are starting to get "no." For some reason you have quit saying hi, but I think it's because you would rather just wave. Some days you just talk all day long, and you always talk the most when you are playing on the floor.

You are still crawling everywhere and getting into everything! You love to stand up and you pull up on anything you can. You don't really like to let go yet. You do like to walk while pushing the walker or holding our hands.

You love to wave bye-it's your favorite thing to do. Sometimes you have bye when we are going up the stairs. You also are learning to reach one arm out when you want something. You give high fives and do touchdown (it's hilarious)!

You have celebrated your first Thanksgiving this month, made your first trip to Missouri, and met Santa twice (neither of which you enjoyed).
You are always busy and never sit still. You are a social bug and will just about crawl up to anyone (except Santa).
You are so silly and fun to be around. I can't believe that we will be celebrating your first birthday soon (yes, mommy is already planning). This time last year we were so curious as to what you would look like, how big you would be, and when you were coming. Now we know that we have one adorable, happy boy that is growing and learning every day and we couldn't be more thankful for that. We love you very much, Hudson.
