Brooks at 11 months

It's happening, my baby is turning into a toddler.  And he can throw a fit to prove it.  Luckily he's super cute and has a grin that can get him out of any trouble he may cause. 

Stats| 20 pounds according to our scale and since he doesn't go to the doctor this month, I haven't the slightest clue how tall he is.  He doesn't stay still long enough for me to figure that one out.  Wearing 9-12 month clothes and size 4 diaper. I finally bought the kid some shoes and although I bought him a 2, they don't seem like they'll fit much longer.  And since he kicks them off and isn't walking yet, I'm in no hurry to buy more.

Eating| 4 bottles of 3-8 oz.  His first and last bottles he drinks great and the other 2 are more like snacks.  He eats 3 meals and a snack and will pretty much eat anything you hand him. He's a messy eater and pulls off his bibs so an automatic vacuum is on my wish list.  Still sporting 8 chompers

Sleeping| 7pm to 7:30 am.  Sometimes he'll drink a bottle around 6am and then sleep till 9am!! I really love him for that.  Depending on when he wakes up, he takes 1-2 naps.  If he has a morning nap it's about an hour and then the afternoon one is 1.5-2.  If he has 1 nap, its about 2-3 hours.  No complaints in the sleeping department. 

Playing| Finally crawling on his knees consistently, pulls up on anything and everything, stands for several seconds and has taken a step! He has really taken a liking to balls and has a decent through.  He wants whatever sister is playing with which results in a brawl.  I didn't expect the sibling fighting to start already!  He can quickly make it up a flight of stairs but hasn't mastered going down them.

Health| Clean bill of health this month.  It's only a matter of time before he gets sick from the crawling he did at numerous airports.  It had this germaphob mom cringing.  We've been rolling oils on his feet to boost that immune system and no sickies yet!

Likes| He experienced the ocean for the first time and loved the beach.  He'd crawl around on the sand and splash when the tide would come up to him.  The hideous car carts at the grocery store, screaming, when sister shares suckers with him and charming other people.

Dislikes| Sleeping on airplanes
Your funny, active, happy, curious, loveable, loud and so so adorable.  I get weepy thinking about you turning 1, it can't possibly be that time already! I love you so much sweet boy, don't ever forget it. 
These pictures were almost impossible.  Between a very active baby and a sister jumping in the crib I trapped her in, I'm glad I only have 1 month left.
