11 months = Independant Baby!


Lately, Bennett has been a lot more independent. He's actually entertaining himself and playing with the many many toys that he has! {as opposed to following me around whining to be picked up- not that I wasn't flattered, but I couldn't really get a minute to myself!}

Maybe this new found independance is because he turned 11 months old on LAST Sunday (the 26th). I know... major Mom fail that I'm just NOW blogging about it. Sorry, things were super busy with the Holiday :)

Well here are a few cute things to note:
  • Says Ma-Ma, Da-da, Ba-Ba (bottle, or hungry)
  • Sings along to "The Ants Go Marching"... that is his favorite song!
  • Has 3 teeth coming in! 2 on the bottom and one on the top!
  • Loves shaking tic-tac boxes.
  • He is very close to walking, he stands on his own for a very long time, and walks along tables and couches. He just needs to put it all together.
  • He LOVES to cuddle. 
  • Gives the best hugs in the world.
  • Eats EVERYTHING! This kid is not picky what-so-ever.
  • Wears size 4 diapers.
  • He's in 18-24 month pants.
  • Wearing 12-18 month shirts.
  • Is finally sleeping in past 5am! He generally wakes up between 7-7:30am.
  • He still loves bath time!
  • Watches Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse, every day. Still! :)
I could go on forever! He has such a sweet little personality. I have never seen a baby so cuddly and lovey dovey!! I just love my sweet little boy SO SO SO much!!!

I can't believe he turns ONE next month! EEEK!

Aww Happy 11 months Bennett! He is so stinkin cute! :-) Ours isn't a picky eater either which makes it 110 times easier to go out to eat and whatnot. Hope you are enjoying your day with your sweet boy!

So cute! I still love that he watches Mickey Mouse Club. A classic baby.

We have a wedding on NYE! Although I do love a NYE at home and off the roads!

Kingston and him are a lot alike both so independent! He looks soo much more grown this month! Crazy Crazy..Um you better film him singing the aunts go marching. I'd probably die watching that.

Happy 11 months Bennett Love you!!!!

I was smiling big as I went through your list. It's like reliving my kids' baby days. :)

So Bennett's a January boy? They're the best. I have two here --my hubby and J! =)

Wow the boys really are doing the same things! I was a slacker and didn't get very detailed on this months update...but the new found independence is really nice isn't it!

I read your blog daily by the way...even though I don't always comment! I really enjoy it and feel like I know you and your family even though I don't! :o)

Jenn said...

Love the list and it sounds SO familiar!!! :) Time does go by so fast but you're doing such a wonderful job documenting everything for your little man. So... sweet!

Oh... and that love you feel is gonna keep growning and growing and growing! Sometimes I look at my four and absorb as much of their love as I can. They're the best and each year is so very special in it's own way...

Big plans for the BIG ONE??? :)
