I can't believe my little stinker just turned 11 months old. He is seriously growing way too fast.
It might be the fact that he eats sooooo muuuuuch foooooood. I'm telling you this kid has serious food issues. He shovels it in and can never seem to get enough. Just this morning he ate a whole oatmeal blueberry pancake, half of an avocado, and some cottage cheese. I had to stop him so that he would still be hungry for his milk! I'm still trying to give him lots of different flavours and textures. He'll pretty much eat anything (even pieces of raw mushroom, flakes of cooked salmon, etc.) but he definitely prefers some foods over others. For example, if he's eating a tiny piece of cucumber and I put some raspberries down, he'll spit out the cucumber to get to those berries asap. It's pretty funny. When he's full he does the cutest thing. He takes the leftovers and piece by piece places them on the seat beside him. When I lift him out of the highchair I occasionally find a little pile of uneaten food. Maybe he's saving it for later like a little chipmunk, heh heh heh.
Coops is finally sleeping through the night from about 6:30 p.m. until 6:30 a.m. It took a lot of hard work but we did it. I have absolutely no idea how I was even functioning before. Having my nights back is absolute awesomeness. He has two 30-40 minute naps during the day which is when I sprint around trying to get any projects or chores done.
His favourite toys right now are a big foam ball and an adorable set of tiny wooden cars (that aren't supposed to be for babies but don't worry he's always supervised when playing with them). I'm trying to figure out what kind of fun present to get him for his first birthday which is coming up soon. If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them!
He's cruising around the house holding onto furniture, walls, and pant legs. He can climb up stairs but I'm trying not to encourage that just yet. He loves pointing to new things and making the sound, "Oooooooh" or "Whooooooooa". Obviously I find that pretty adorable as well. ;)
I'm finding it next to impossible to get any good pictures of him looking at the camera. He's always too busy doing this stuff:
The rare occasions when I get him still enough to get a nice, crisp photo he is always making the goofiest faces!
P.S. He loves bopping around to music, especially that new Taylor Swift song.
P.S.S. He's got six teeth!
P.S.S.S. He tries to hijack my blog all the time. I'm sure it's to say hi to you. ;)
