11 Months Old

  • Evan weighs between 18-19 lbs.
  • Evan wears 9 month or 12 month clothes.
  • Evan wears size 4 diapers.
  • Evan LOVES his pacie...and unfortunately has a rash around his mouth from it.  I thought it was a formula reaction at first, but it is definitely from his pacie.
  • Evan has had a crazy month of firsts!
  • Evan can pull himself up from sitting to his knees...not quite to his feet yet but oh so close.
  • Evan can go from crawling position to sitting and as of this week from laying down to sitting!
  • Evan can finally get into the crawling position on his own, but has not made much forward progression...some but not much.
  • Evan can stand all day long and is really cruising now.  He takes little baby steps but if you walk away and come back he has moved from one side of the couch to the other.
  • Evan got his first tooth this month on the bottom right side...and his bottom left is coming in!
  • Evan eats like a crazy person....I mean the kid is a bottomless pit.  We literally have to back him away from the table!  Evan eats 3 meals and countless snacks...I try to limit it to 2 though.
  • Evan loves ALL foods!  Not one he has rejected...NOT ONE!
  • Evan tried milk for the first time this month....such an easy transition.  We still are heating it a little bit, but slowly we will be phasing that out.
  • Evan still breastfeeds in the morning, but has a bottle of milk at night.  We have cut out the middle milk feeding and replaced with food.
  • Evan started feeding himself grapes and blueberries today!
  • Evan is a great sleeper but has showed some signs of separation anxiety this month...the boy just loves his Mommy...what can I say.
  • Evan wakes up between 6:30-7, takes a nap around 8-9, takes another nap between 12-1 and goes to bed around 7.  Sometimes he takes a 3rd nap before bedtime, but this one is getting phased out, too.
  • Evan is so vocal!  He sings all the time and mimics the sounds you make.  If I sing a tune to him, he will do his best to repeat it back.
  • Evan loves banging things together...I have a feeling he is going to be a little musician and steals the girls hearts :)
  • Evan has been more needy this month...but I think it is because he wants to be moving and can't yet.  He is so close and I think he knows it!
  • Evan is a great traveler!  You rarely hear him make a peep in the back.  I am going to keep him turned around as long as possible...luckily he has a little entertainer next to him to ride everywhere with!
  • Evan loved playing in the pool this month and does great in the floats.
  • Evan is such a cuddler and loves to be held...and I could just love on him all day long.
  • Evan gives open mouth kisses!
  • Evan loves to pick something up and wave it up high to show you what he has.
  • Evan goes from standing to sitting with ease now and loves to try to hold on with no hands!  He is getting really brave!
  • Evan has had a lot if spills with his new found mobility.  He is getting really curious and just hasn't learned how to prevent the falls yet.
  • Evan is a watch those fingers when feeding.  Poor Zoe found out the hard way and he would not let go. 
  • Evan loves to pull Zoe's hair...such a little brother already!
  • Evan's favorite toy to play with is this little baseball and the play drumstick.
  • Evan sleeps with his train blanket still.
  • Evan's crib FINALLY got lowered last week!
  • Evan will be completely weaned this week...bittersweet but so proud of how well we did!
God is truly teaching me so many valuable lessons through this baby boy of mine.  To some, Evan's delay might be exhausting, an issue...or something one would fear.  I have learned that Evan is perfect and in his perfect timing he will get things down pact.  God has taught me to rejoice in every baby step and sing praises for every milestone meet.  I am so proud of this little guy and I love that this time around, I am so much more aware of how much he progresses!  Evan is doing AMAZING and I can't believe he will be 1 year old next month!
