11 months

Such a sweet boy...but getting so old! And big!

At 11 months you:

Are 23 lbs and 75 cm

Eating all kinds of finger foods and prefer them over being spoon fed

Cheese, toast, tortillas, turkey, puffs, mum-mums, cheerios(Daddy likes to give you these in the am) peas, wagon wheels, chicken and I bet anything else I would put in front of you!

Giving you medicine has always been easy because you love to suck on the dropper..and you usually get every last drop out!

You will drink from a sippy cup..you tend to like to use the bigger ones like Jack does instead of the special baby one I got you...this may be a trend starting?

You pull up on everything and can almost stand up on your own from sitting...thats a big ALMOST.

You can crawl up the stairs..gulp!

You love to sit at the bottom of the stairs and yell for me or Jack because you can hear us up there when you are downstairs playing with Daddy.

You are generally very good about riding in the car or your stroller but time for you to crawl around everyday is a must.

You love snakes and cows!

You dont like getting dressed or having your diaper changed.

Momma tries to distract you by singing songs like "Put your little foot" or "Pat a cake" ..sometimes it works..sometimes NOT!

You definitely have a strong personality

You still LOVE your brother Jack and watch everything he does.

It is fun when you crawl up and peek at him in his chair or on the couch.

Jack will clamp on to you and whine "I want you Joey" ..his way of telling you how much he loves you...then you get crabby because he wont let go and you whine!

You like to swing at Katie's and at the park

Family time

We had a good weekend...finally 2 days to just get things done around the house and spend time with the boys.

Joey and I went shopping in Eden Prairie on Fri night...I miss these days of just me and the baby out strolling around ...It was nice to have time with just him.

Our church/private grade school had their fall festival..Applefest... and we went both Sat and Sun for a few hours.

We picked out a fun painted pumpkin

Jack played games, got his face painted by Lollipop the clown, played mini golf and rode a pony!

and I bought the most delicious brownies ever from the country store.

They are gone now..no chance for a picture!

Jack helped me make a display board for his preschool..I was pretty proud of it..I must have been an elementary school teacher in a former life!

I took the boys to the park on Sunday aftn while Dad took 2nd in a golf tourney!

It was a spectacular fall day...and the boys had a good time..Joey can only sit in the stroller or swing so he gets bored..tried to let him sit on the slide with his brother and here is what happens..

I got 80% of my garage sale stuff marked and ready for next weekend...hoping to sell a lot of it but in reality I know that won't happen..we live outside the city limits and people just dont want to drive that far. Anyone want newborn boy baby clothes??

Lucky me

Today when I picked up Jack from preschool..he came running towards me..all the other kids ran past us to their parents..but he stopped quick..turned around and yelled back..BYE BYE..um...BYE Mrs. Hathaway and Mrs. Traxler..see you next time!

It was so cute I tell you..I was the proudest momma on the planet at that very moment.

He is growing up to be such an outgoing, friendly guy.

I WUV him.

First Day of Preschool!

Finally it is here...we have been driving past the building all summer in anticipation of this day.

Jack is in preschool with many of his friends from daycare, ECFE and soccer. I cant believe 4 other kids are in his class that were babies with him in his Baby class at ECFE.

We had a "meet the teachers" night last week and he was playing hard like all the other kids when he decided to yell at me across the room.."MOMMY! I HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM!!!"

Now..he knows how to use the facilities on his own..can you tell he was excited to be there?

After emerging from the bathoom he yelled again across the room.." MOMMY! EVERYTHING HERE IS JUST MY SIZE!!"

Fast forward to today..he got ready and allowed me to take a few pics before we headed out..

I love this one..
I didnt cry at all! I think because we dropped him off and I didnt have to see him get on a bus it was easier.
Here he is when I picked him up with his teachers..Mrs H and Mrs. T

And finally Daddy and I took him out for lunch to one of his favorite spots..for chicken strips, FF and a "nanilla" malt

Good times!
