Happy 11 Month Birthday Holden!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Seriously?!?! Holden Michael when did you grow up SOOO fast?? Today you are ELEVEN months old! That means that just in a few weeks, I will have a big 1 year old! Oh sweet boy, how we love you so much! You are such a joy and fill our days with so much happiness! You are the best thing that has ever happened to us and we love you more and more every day. You are the funniest little boy around. You have the funniest laugh and we just LOVE to hear it. Here is a little of what you are up to at 11 months: 
You are still wearing size 3 diapers.
You wear size 6-12 month pants for the length of course and size 6-12 or 12-18 month shirts depending on how long they are.
You sleep about 11 1/2 hours at night {sometime more on the weekends} and take 1 or 2 naps a day.
You are starting to get more and more hair!

 You like to eat more every day. Well sometimes. You will eat almost anything that we give you but still are funny about if you want to eat or not. Some days you will eat a TON and then the next not so much.
You favorite foods are Ritz crackers, goldfish, little puff cheetos things, pepperoni, avocado, corn, any pasta, cheese quesadillas, rice at the mexican restaurant {not white rice}. Really you eat just about everything.
You are all done with baby food! No need to buy it when you will eat whatever we are eating.
You still have NO teeth and I love the little toothless smile : )
We have started dropping bottles so you now only get a bottle in the morning and at bedtime or so.
You could suck on your paci all day if I let you and you love your blankie.
You think that dogs and cats are the best thing ever.
You are a HUGE flirt!
You just went to your first birthday party a few weeks ago for one of your girlfriends Abagail and had lots of fun.
You are crawling EVERYWHERE and are super fast!
You love water {playing in it and drinking}
Your favorite things are your cars, big dump truck that Daddy got you, balls and Elmo.
You make a "brrrrr" sound when you play with your cars! It is soo stinkin cute!
You think it is the funniest thing ever to climb up on the bottom step if the gate isn't closed. 
You love to follow me around and say Mamamamamama all day. And you know that Dadadadada is Daddy. 
I can ask you during the day or at home before Daddy gets home where is Daddy and you look around everywhere for him.
You love going on walks but it's almost getting to cold for them. Plus its dark at like 5:30.
You have started dancing to music and it is adorable! 
You have such a funny and loving personality. You will crawl over to people you don't know that come over and pull yourself up on their legs so that they can pick you up.
You love to be held.
When I sign the song If your Happy and you Know It you will clap your hands!
You clap and say "yea" all the time

Holden you change SO much every day! I can not believe how awesome the past 11 months have been! We love you sweet boy!
