11 Months

You are officially finished nursing as of a couple of weeks ago.  It makes mama just a little bit sad not to have that special time with you anymore, but mostly I just feel a whole lot of freedom!  Once we found the right bottle, you had no trouble taking formula in it.  You currently take 4 bottles a day, ranging from 4-6 ounces each.

You've been back and forth on sleeping through the night since you were 4 months old, but I think we're finally finished with the roller coaster and you're sleeping through the night for good!  You sleep 7pm to 7am!

You have 3 teeth, two on top and one on bottom, but there are at least 3 more about to poke through any day.

Finally have a pretty regular schedule:
Wake at 7
Nap at 9
Lunch at 12
Nap at 1 or 2
Snack at 4
Dinner at 6
Bed at 7

You survived your first move.

Your favorite word is "buh." You use it to say outside, Hondo, and just about anything that you are trying to communicate to us.

You can say hi, dada, mama, ruff, and you said Ellie recently.  Daddy says he guesses that her smothering you for the past 11 months has paid off.  You also growl when you play with your dinosaurs.

Not interested in baby food at all anymore.  We used it mostly when I didn't make anything that you could eat, but now you will not eat it.  You want the real stuff. Your favorite foods are eggs, muffins, pancakes, toast, bananas, avocados, grapes, strawberries, green beans, green peas, etc.  Honestly, you really love anything that we put on your tray.

You LOVE your paci, and you sleep with two: one in your mouth and one in your hand.

Daddy is one of your favorite people in the world, and you have just recently started preferring him over mama sometimes.  You just make his day when you practically jump out of my arms to go to him.

Favorite toys right now: a ball that lights up when you throw it, a firetruck/fireman, your remote control that we took the batteries out of, and a ride on toy that plays music when you push the buttons.

  1. I just got caught up on all your Shep postings -- since I have the new blog that doesn't have everyone's blogs on the side to let me know when they are updated, I hadn't realized you had posted all of these. Sure enjoyed reading them and we sure love that little guy. It was really special to spend some one on one time with him this past weekend, as well as his sisters! Love all of you so much!
