Finley is 11 months

Oh my, how is our serene little baby already almost 1 year old. I cannot believe that his first full cycle around the sun is almost complete. We will def. be soaking up this last month with our precious baby boy before he officially becomes a "toddler".

No new stats this month, but he is getting bigger and bigger.

Likes: being outside, balls of all kinds, pushing the kitchen stool and walking, cruising, standing up, sticks, being with his family, smiling, clapping, being held or worn in a wrap, playing with Noah and Daddy, eating food, grunting, reading

Dislikes: getting dressed and diaper changes

Sleep: He is still taking 2 naps a day, a morning nap around 9ish and an afternoon nap around 1or 1:30ish. Both naps are about 45 mins-2 hours each. He is ready for bed at night around 6:30/7pm and wakes around 6:30-7am. We are still co sleeping at night, and he still likes to nurse a few times during the night. We did remove the crib from his room this past weekend since he wasn't using it, and we put the floor bed in his room instead (the one Noah had before his bunk bed). So far, we are experimenting with nap time, and once he is really comfortable with napping in there, I will start putting him to bed at night on his floor bed. He also really enjoys playing on the floor bed with Noah. ;)

Foodie Baby: Finn LOVES to eat still and is such a great eater!! He is eating 3 meals a day as well as 1-2 snacks. He is still nursing during the day and at night too. Finn is continuing to learn how to hold his sippy cup solo and drink water from it. He can also drink from a regular cup when I hold it for him.

Language/Development: His newest development this month in terms of language was his grunting. He now can point (with an open hand, not pointer finger) and grunt to things that he wants/needs (ex: water, toys, etc), and it actually works quite well for him with communicating. We usually always know what he wants/needs these days. He also started signing "eat", "more" and "all done/finished" and he can wave. I will try to capture these on video and post them soon. He still babbles a lot and can say "dada", "Mmmm", "Yum" and "Momma!". He is understanding so much of what we say these days too! Sweet boy started cruising last week and walking while pushing our kitchen stool. Shouldn't be too much longer before he is standing solo and walking. Coleman and I better get ready!

Teeth: No new teeth this month. He still has 8 chompers.

Next month this precious little boy turns ONE!! Til then!
