11 months!

Dear Sawyer,

You are 11 months old.  This one snuck up on me.  When I was getting the blocks together to take your picture I actually grabbed the blocks for 10 months...11 just didn't seem possible.  And I can barely think about you turning 1 next month without getting emotional.

You are really getting your own little personality and are just so fun to be with.  You constantly babble.  You are still only really saying Da-da but are constantly jibber jabbering.  And you laugh alot.  And are so ticklish!

You are pulling up on everything.  And you are cruising around behind anything you can push and you walk from toy to toy as long as you can hold on.  You can also stand and balance for a few seconds but then you sit right down.  You are also obsessed with opening and closing doors.  And door you cracks us up.  But also makes us so nervous you are going to smash your fingers.

You are wearing size 4 diapers.  And mostly 9-12 month clothes.

You weigh around 22 lbs. and are around 29 inches long. 

You now have 8 teeth.  4 on the bottom and 4 on top.  The top ones just broke through a week or so ago.  But watching your smile go from gummy to toothy has been so cute!

You still nurse in the morning and at night.  And you take 2 bottles at daycare.  We are still giving you a sippy cup so hopefully we won't have too much trouble weening you from the bottle.  I don't think we will.  You've actually never been a big bottle fan.  You've always preferred it straight from the source but you do seem to really like your sippy cup.  You also eat baby food 3 times a day and eat snacks.  You have tried a lot of table food -- we basically let you try everything we eat.

You go to bed around 7:30pm and sleep until around 7:00am.  You still don't really nap at daycare but at home you take 2 naps a day, usually 1-2 hours.  You are a great sleeper!

You are such a great baby.  And I am still amazed that you are actually mine!  I wonder if this feeling ever goes away?  I doubt it because just when I think I can't love you more a new day is upon us and I do!

You are my precious baby boy and you've completed my life!
I love, love, love you!!

Since you are turning 11 months on the day that Auburn is playing for the National Championship I thought it was only fitting that your picture be made in an Auburn outfit!

Here are some pictures of you at 11 months:

Awwhh, Sawyer is so cute. You can tell by his expressions that he is such a happy baby. I can't believe he is already 11 months old. Glad he has a birthday in a month so we can see you all soon. xoxo

Just stumbled on your blog...Your baby is so cute : ) I get sad too with my lil girls. Everytime I have to put little clothes away I get kinda emotional, my hubby thinks Im crazy.
