A little past due on our 11 month update, but here I am, and I am doing it today. I think part of me doesn’t want to acknowledge that the babies are 11 months old, so if I skip the update it isn’t true, right?
It astonishes me to this day just how much 2 little babies can change in the month since the last update, and 1 month from now I can only imagine.
The babies are great eaters and love almost everything I feed them. G is slightly pickier, he doesn’t like those little baby puffs any more. They are still nursing 5 times a day and get 1 bottle of cow’s milk a day (trying to switch to sippy cups, but they aren’t having it.) My goal with breastfeeding was 1 year, so we are getting really close to calling it quits. It makes me so sad to think about, and I will miss our sweet little special time. I am really savoring our last month of breastfeeding.
Let’s start with Mr. C, he is offically walking, mostly about 5-10 steps at a time and then he sits or stumbles. He is getting braver by the day and I see him walking all over the place, which worries me a bit, because he is clumsy (as you can see his forehead and all the bruises). He is a happy, loud, and super cuddly baby. He loves opening and shutting doors, they keep him busy. He loves playing, following his big brothers around, and reading books. His favorite book is Brown Bear, Brown Bear. He loves his paci and a little blue hippo lovey. Colt now has 2 teeth, his top left and bottom right tooth, and the another bottom tooth is so close to popping through.
So cute, bumps and bruises and all.
My G man refuses to smile for the camera!! But he is a smiley happy baby, none the less. G has 6 teeth now, 4 on top and 2 on bottom. He is trying to walk, but we call him the drunk monkey, poor baby. He tries to walk, but is very wobbly. He will take about 2 steps towards me and fall forward in my arms. It’s sweet and he thinks it is so much fun. He is obsessed with the tv remote, cell and house phones. He will spot them and is dead set on getting it. For Easter he got a much cooler toy cell phone, but wants nothing to do with it. He loves to take the remote and drop it and say UH really loud, he hasn’t quite got the oh, part of uh-oh. He also says ma-ma, da-da and ba-ba. It’s very sweet in the mornings when I get him from his crib, he is so happy and almost always says ma-ma. His strawberry birthmark seems to be fading in color slightly and maybe is slightly smaller. We love his birthmark, and joke that it is his most kissable spot.
All four boys with their Easter Eggs. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Easter.
