11 months

Baby Lou,

I honestly can't believe we have come so far. I know that sounds ridiculous but it's true. Time really does fly this first year. 4 weeks until my baby becomes a toddler. 

In the post about the Braves game, I told you all the words you know. You have such a sweet and high pitched voice. You like to be heard.

Although we are sleep training at night, your schedule looks like...
7:30 Wake up
7:45-8:00 Breakfast
     rice or oatmeal mixed with a 4 oz. jar of fruit
     4 oz. bottle
10:00 nap (1-1.5 hours)
11:45-12:00 6 ounce bottle
2:00ish nap (1-1.5 hours)
3:00-3:30 Lunch
     1 jar fruit 
     .5 jar veggie
6:30 Dinner
     1 6 oz. jar veggie and meat mix
     cut up chicken, beef, or turkey and a veggie
8:00-8:30 6 ounce bottle then bed

I love giving you yogurt for lunch and you eat it fast. The whole milk, organic yogurt comes in 4 oz. containers and are perfect along with a veggie. I know you wish you could eat yogurt and pasta all day.

You woke up at 12:30 and after two checks by Daddy that didn't help (didn't make it worse but didn't help), eventually you fell asleep around 1:45 a.m. Slept until 7:30. I think we are getting somewhere. This soothing stuff is really hard for you because up until last week if you fussed at night, Dad or I would pop the paci and you would drift back off. You won't take it at night anymore which is good and bad.

You are getting much better at playing by yourself. I retired a lot of toys that you never even touched a few days ago. You like things that move. Right now, you are playing with a noisy fire truck. Rolling it everywhere and making noise. You also love your rocket swing outside. You love to dance. Dancing to you means bobbing up and down. Whether it's on your knees, standing, or just sitting, when there is music being played or a song sung, look out!

We had to buy you a new wardrobe as all of your fall/winter clothes don't fit yet. You fit best in 6-9 month clothes. The 12 month clothes are too long in the sleeves and pants. Old Navy 6-12 month jeans fit great. Still in size 4 diapers.

When I put my hand over your mouth, you start making, "ahh" noises then I move my hand back and forth and you love the noise it makes. At Wyatt's the other night, you actually did it with your hand. Have yet to do it again but still cute. You like to make the noise on my arm but I won't let you anymore because you end up deciding to bite it. You like to clap and what is most funny is that you clap every time you fall on your butt. I guess months of seeing all of us do it sponged in. 

Your sensory overload face is crazy. I love it because it reminds me of the face I make. We bought you a funky caterpillar yesterday and you tensed up and made the sensory face. It is your new favorite car toy. I named him Weirdo. You love to push things especially toys that roll and your stroller. It is so funny watching you push your stroller one handed!

Love you Baby Mason,
