Henry’s 11 Month Update!

Everyone tells you that the time seems to fly by at double speed when you become a parent. I never believed it.. but now I realize just how true it is. I can’t believe my baby is already 11 months old and that I’m planning his first birthday party. This was quite an eventful month in our world. Henry is definitely such a “mama’s boy” right now and his separation anxiety is at an all time high! If anyone has any experience with that, I’d love to hear your advice. I can’t believe next month will be our last “monthly update!” My baby boy will soon be a toddler and I’m full of ALLL the feels. Here’s what’s been going on in the past month:

Stats:

Weighing in at 22.3 lbs & 29.5 inches
Sleeping 11 hours per night (8pm-7am avg.)
Eating 3 “solid” meals per day and no more purees!

New skills:

WALKING! WHATTTT?! We were so not mentally or physically prepared for this milestone to happen so soon! We were hanging out with our neighbors and their two & four year old children during Hurricane Irma – and I think that’s how he learned so quickly!
Henry also sprouted his two upper molars (NOT fun, for anyone)
Knows how to answer when you ask what a cow, sheep, dog, lion, snake, giraffe and dentist says

Loving:

When he hears the bath running he comes squealing into the bathroom all by himself, smoothies, Siete tortilla chips (oops)

Hating:

Being restrained in any sense of the word – car seat, stroller, high chair, diaper changes.. UGH!

I’m, of course, looking forward to what the future brings for Henry, but also having a really hard time coping with the fact that he’s about to turn one! I’m almost done with the planning and DIY’ing for his birthday party and I can’t wait to see it come together. We’re doing a dinosaur theme and I’m so excited! I’m so interested to see what he’ll do with his smash cake (although I have a feeling I’m hyping it up too much!). Stay tuned for those pictures!
