Graham || 11 months

Dear Graham,

You are now 11 months old.  Part of me is so sad because you are my baby and the time is passing too quickly.  But the other part of me is just enjoying watching you grow and develop your own little personality.  And watching you and your brother really starting to play and interact together is priceless.  I catch myself saying "just wait till Graham can walk and talk", when referring to you guys playing together.  You guys are already best buds!

You have 5 teeth - 3 on top and 2 on bottom.  It looks like a couple more may be popping up soon.  You are nursing 4 times a day (take 2 bottles when at daycare) and eating baby food 3 times a day.  You are also eating lots of table food and your prefer this over baby food.  It is so hard feeding you baby food.  You try and grab the spoon and sometimes are successful. Then you'll put your hand all over your face and hair.  It's a mess.  You drink water from your sippy cup and soon we'll start giving you milk in there.  I don't think we'll have a problem getting you off the bottle -- you aren't that attached.

You weigh almost 21 lbs. and are 30 inches long.  You are wearing size 3 diapers and 12 month clothes.  A few 18 month things fit too.

You go to bed between 7-8 depending on your afternoon nap and you wake up between 7-8am.  You usually take 2 naps - usually a long morning nap and a quick afternoon nap. 

You are crawling and pulling up on everything.  You love to climb.  Your favorite toy is whatever your brother is currently playing with.  You want to do everything your brother does.  And he can get the best laughs out of you. You've said "mama" a couple of times and hearing that makes my heart sing!  You love for us to crawl behind you and chase just laugh and laugh.  And you are very ticklish.

You are such a joy.  So easy and laid back.  But also becoming a little daredevil.  Our family is totally and completely blessed by you!

I love, love, love you!!

Here are some pictures of you at 11 months:
Can't leave out big brother.

Most of the pictures look like this.
