This is all going too fast. Tate is 11 months. That’s almost a year! He still seems like such a baby to me, but then I pick him up and he weighs a million pounds and is giant and I have to remind myself that he is this.close from not being a baby anymore. Tear…
So, lets start off with the best thing ever…. He is officially walking! He’s been crouching and then powering up into standing for a couple of weeks now. Last week, he tried for about an hour to get that first little foot moving forward, then got some courage and took about 5 steps in a row. Since then it has been a few little steps here and there. I can see his confidence growing with each step. He is so proud of himself and his little face is showing it constantly.
He still sleeps like crap. I sometimes feel like I am dying from lack of sleep and sometimes I really lose it and I get pretty angry about it. These are usually the nights when he has kept me up two or more nights in a row and just won’t settle down. Last week was definitely like this. He had four nights in a row of constant squirming and crying and just would not sleep. By the fourth night I was beside myself and made M take him away for a while so I could just gather my patience and try to relax. The next day, he walked for the first time, so I am thinking that his little brain and body were trying to get that all figured out. I am really hoping that he figures out sleeping soon because this mama needs some sleep.
This little bug eats like a champ. He loves food and will eat almost anything. He especially loves whatever I am eating. He is getting really good with shoveling food into his mouth and we have been experimenting with a spoon to see how it goes. I am slowly introducing whole milk a little here and there. He seem to really like it, so that is good for the eventual transition. I plan on breastfeeding for as long as possible (or as long as he wants to) so the whole milk will be in addition to whatever breast milk he is getting.
He is still my little snuggle bug and I love him so so much. I seriously can’t believe that the next post on him will be about him turning one. That is insane and sooo sad too. My little guy is growing up so fast!
