|Note the drool- still not teeth. It's deceiving I tell you...|
Weight/Length- 22 pounds and 29/30 inches
Eating- At 11 months, my milk supply tanked- between starting boot camp and sickness- I wasn’t surprised. I felt accomplished that I had lasted as long as I did, then I quickly handed him the formula He has 2 bottles of formula and two bottles of pumped milk. Deacon is not picky about food- he will eat about anything. His favorites this month are squeeze pouches, mac n cheese, pears, raisins, freeze dried fruit drops, chicken, strawberries, and yogurt.
|Name that show- "you got it dude"|
Bedtime/Awake- OK I’m biased but both boys sleep like champs. Deacon sleeps 11.5-12 hours at night. He does a small morning nap and a long 2/3 hour nap in the afternoon. During our sickness, I had them in separate rooms again and Noah 100% missed his brother. It’s sweet that they both like sleeping in the same room. I love listening to them talk and play as they wind down at night.
Dislikes- Deacon still hates to have his diaper changed. He gets frustrated and wants to break free. We usually try to offer an item that he can hold or sing some kind of song. It’s sad but I dread changing his diaper.
Likes- This boy is quite cheerful. We love his cheek to cheek grins and large belly laughs. Things that get him really fired up- bath time, Lego demolishing, walks, snuggling his two blankets, “walking” while holding our fingers, Bruiser, brother, and his DAD. Deacon loves to be outside, swing at the park, and chase his brother. This boy has ditched the army crawl and now 100% bear crawls. Homeboy is the best cleaner in our house. He loves to put things away in bins. He also has the best arm- he loves to throw things especially my iPhone…eeek! He thinks it’s hilarious and claps at himself with pride.
|Three way headbutt. Deacon sandwich. It takes determination.|
Favorite memories of the month- I have LOVED watching this boy grow. There are so many new tricks this month. He can say mama, dada, bruiser, and hi. He waves bye, gives lots of high fives, dances, head butts, and plays peekaboo. This little toddler personality is coming out of my baby, and I’m shocked. I really am starting to see how he fits into our family dynamic and love his sweet personality. It’s amazing how God creates each of us so uniquely. Noah and Deacon are night and day different but at the same time- you can totally tell they are brothers. Their laughs are identical. I melt over my two sons. I am that mama.
Sorry this is so late! It’s been a hard fall season at our house between sickness, busy season, Matt’s school/ Fort Worth internship, and life. There has been chaos and more chaos. It’s a beautiful thing; it just leaves for a neglected blog. I had this written a month ago and these pictures taken as well- just seriously never had time to sit down and edit/post.
|flash forward 15 years from now- I think these two will give me the same looks.|
