11 Months!

Stats: 22 lbs, 29.5 inches long 

Eating: We are SO excited to be on our last month of buying formula! I feel like we are going to get a $50/ month raise! (Which is saying a lot because neither of us currently make any money haha). James is turning into quite the picky eater. A few of his recent favorites include: veggie straws (from Costco), puffs (blueberry flavor), cheese (and more cheese!), and turkey. He is also a lot better at drinking water now that we found a sippy cup he actually likes! We went with the Skip Hop brand with a straw, no spill proof valve. The valves were making it too hard to suck and he was losing interest.

Sleeping: He finally sleeps through the night like a champ! James sleeps from 7:30 pm - 7:15 am and IT IS THE BEST. Seriously, this should have happened months ago! To be honest I don't know how we made it so long as sleep deprived parents. He naps from 9:30-11 and 2:30-4:30 daily. Sometimes he isn't as great at taking long naps, but that is the general idea of our schedule. I'm totally not looking forward to moving to one nap a day because I love the "me" time I get with this arrangement- AKA getting a shower in the morning.

Milestones: James is getting better at walking around furniture, and trying to walk with our assistance. Secretly I want to keep him from walking though because I feel like if he can't walk than he won't grow up. haha. He is awesome at feeding himself, climbing stairs, waving at people and still loves to play patty cake.

Fun Facts:
- Loves the Zoo. We went to the zoo for the first time in DC and it was a hit! He LOVED watching the apes and the elephants especially.
- Laughs when other people are laughing (even when he has no idea what is going on)
- Holds his shoes up to his ear to "talk on the phone"
- Obsessed with poking teeth and eyes
- Loves playing with other children
- "Sings" (more like loudly yells) while I practice harp
- Still hates the car seat- taking any and all advice on getting your kid to like the car seat
- Loves going for walks and petting the dogs
- Wants to eat anything mom and dad are eating
- Loves brushing his teeth (mostly just loves eating the toothpaste)

What we are looking forward to: Grandma and Grandpa coming in 1 month to celebrate James' birthday, taking family pictures in a few weeks, and the leaves changing!
