11 Months!

Wesley is 11 months old today! I can't believe it. The last time we'll celebrate a month milestone without a "1-year-and-" in front of it. Ooh he's such a cutie.

  • He's a full time walker now and has been for about 3 weeks. His poor forehead always has at least one bruise on it these days from taking unsteady steps.
  • He loves mommy and daddy best of anyone and he hates being babysat.
  • He doesn't really like other babies because that probably means I'm babysitting which means he'll have to compete with them for my attention. So if another baby kid is around, he'll go ahead and give them the stink-eye and get real clingy just so they know he's not planning to share me.
  • He shakes his head no, but just for fun. It's really sweet
  • He plays peekaboo!
  • He LOVES cell phones and keys
  • He does not like to sit down in his car seat or high chair. Once he is in, all is well, but he'll put up a fight before he gets there.
  • He LOVES to play outside. He would never come in if I didn't make him.
  • He LOVES to bite. Pretty much everything we have (that he has ever seen) has met his teeth.
  • He does not like vegetables. He's still a really picky eater, but he is doing much better with eating generally.
  • He still wakes up several times a night, but he is getting better and more consistent with sleeping. It's a long process...
  • He does not like getting his diaper changed.
  • He LOVES to play! He is so much fun and we LOVE to play with him! He is just the cutest, sweetest little thing our lives have ever known.

Happy almost 1 baby boy!

Tonight I taught my last yoga class at Ruby Shoes Studio. I'm so sad to be leaving that place-- it has been wonderful! I've taught yoga twice a week for the last two and a half years and loved it. Now I don't know when the next time will be that I can regularly teach again. Hopefully I can find another place as amazing as Ruby Shoes, but I doubt it. That was perfect and I'll miss it terribly.

Eric got a job! We are so thrilled. The company seems top-notch and like a really good fit for our family. He starts May 3rd! For the first 4 months, he'll be in a different city every week for training. That means Wesley and I will be traveling around to visit family all summer. It should be an exciting adventure! After training we'll be assigned to a territory where we will spend at least the next 2 years. We are excited for this next big step. Now we are going to be REAL adults!
