Thomas - 11 Months

Well, hello there handsome boy!!

My baby Thomas is eleven months old now.  Yes, I realize I am more than just a little late with this post.  I'm doing the best I can at the moment!

What's going on with you, sweet boy?  You are TEETHING something fierce. 

Thomas only has 2 teeth on the bottom right now, but he has two teeth on top that have just broken through the gum surface and has at least FIVE more that are threatening to burst forth into daylight at any moment.  As you can imagine, this has made Thomas more than just a little fussy.  He's not eating as well as usual, his sleeping is a bit more erratic, and he is far more interested in being held and carried around all day than being set down to play.  Kind of a tough spot to be in, considering our current situation.

He had a checkup a couple weeks ago that put him in the 80% for height and 75% for weight, so he's still a pretty big dude!  He weighed in at 23 pounds, 10 ounces!

Some of his 12 month sized clothing is starting to be too small so we are gradually transitioning into the 18 month stuff.  Thankfully, his sizing has been matching up pretty well season-wise so he can reuse the majority of his big brothers' clothes.  Life saver!

His vocabulary still mostly consists of "Heh-deh" and "Ba bah bah bah," but he is capable of saying "Dada" and "Mama" if he so chooses. 

Thomas wants to walk. I do not want him to walk yet.  His brothers and father are encouraging him to walk.  Conflict ensues.

More than anything else, this boy is loved fiercely.  He gets kissed and snuggled and loved on all day long.  He's curious, inquisitive, and energetic.  He exhausts me.  But I love it.

Happy almost birthday Thomas!!
