Tater Boy is eleven months! He just gets better and better. Here are his eleven month stats...
Tate still nurses at 7 am, 10:30 am, 3:00 pm, and 7 pm. (Sometimes he skips the afternoon feeding, though. I'm trying to get him down to three times a day.) He also joins us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner- generally eating whatever we're eating. His favorites are any chopped fruit or steamed vegetable, wild rice, soups, pasta, pizza, pretty much anything.
He sleeps from 7 pm to 6:30 or 7:00 am. He takes a morning nap, usually around 9 am, for an hour or so. Later, he takes a good afternoon nap, usually around 1:30 pm, for about two hours. He's a great sleeper! He just plop him in his crib with his blanket and pacifier (still haven't broken that habit yet!) and he puts himself right to sleep.
He is Mr. Curious lately! He loves opening cupboards and drawers and rummaging around, tearing toilet paper, climbing into the dishwasher whenever it's open, pulling out wipes or tissues from the box, dumping and chewing on the girls art supplies, and other mischief. When he does something naughty we say "Uh uh uh" (instead of "No") and now he understands it well enough that he says "Uh uh uh!" to himself whenever he starts doing something mischievous. We'll hear him saying "Uh uh uh" from the other room and find him playing with the computer cords, or emptying the girls clothing drawers.
He is a speedy crawler, a great stander, and walks along the furniture, but he isn't walking on his own yet. He loves climbs our staircase about 50 times a day. He loves, loves, loves balls and enjoys tossing balls around the room and chasing after them.
Basically, he's just the greatest little guy around, and we are so happy he's in our family. Love you, Tate!
