11 Months Old

Father time, please slow down. Gavin is growing faster than I ever wished, dreamed or hoped.

It is so hard for us to believe that in one month our little man will be 1 year old. We have a busy month ahead of us, planning the perfect celebration for Gavin that we will enjoy with family and friends.

You have changed so much over the past month. You are weighing 26 lbs. 7 oz. and wearing a size 6 diaper. You continue to nurse, but have cut back significantly on your milk intake. You are primarily still eating baby food, because you choke on everything. I am not kidding, we can put a banana in your mouth and you can find a way to choke on it. We attempt to give you solids, but you scare us every time. You have learned to put yourself to sleep and go to bed on your own without a bottle. We are so proud of you.

Pulling up and cruising around furniture are among your favorite things to do these days. On January 16th you decided to officially crawl and not just scoot, scoot, flop & fly.
You and Emma have really started to play together in the past month and it makes my heart giddy. You love her so much and think she is hilarious (you are so right, she really is). Her toys seem to fascinate you more than your age appropriate toys. You will choose some fake food or the Grandma out of the My Loving Family dollhouse over anything.

You are the happiest little guy and you want the world to know. It does not matter the time of day or what is going on, you always have a big happy smile on your sweet little face.

We love you so much baby boy and can never imagine life without your precious little self. You always brighten our days with that smile and keep us on our toes chasing you around. We are so excited to celebrate your 1st Birthday with you soon. Praying that the happiness you have in your heart today will be with you for the rest of your life. You will win over the world with those big eyes and that bright smile.

He is PRECIOUS! Time stand still! You babies are growing up way too fast! I just realized I never got back to you about the blog design. My friend Brittney does graphic design stuff. She mainly does cards and invitations but I know she has done some other blogs too. Her blog is you leave her a message there, she will get it. She is great to work with. She also did our Christmas cards and Cilla's Valentines.
