11 Months Old

This hilarious little dude is 1 month away from being 1 year old!! I cannot believe it! Time is going faster and faster as it gets closer to his 1 year mark, and I don't like it at all because he is seriously so funny and so much fun to be with right now, so I do not want this part of his life to just slip away so fast like it has been.  He is quite the little clown, always doing things to get a laugh out of us- and it works.  He makes the silliest faces and the funniest noises, he dances and claps and all sorts of fun stuff now.  He is becoming more attached to me by the day, and I honestly love it.  He now cries if I walk out the door without him and several times throughout the day he will just crawl to me and beg to be picked up and cuddled- I love it! He loves loves loves attention and will do anything to get it- his favorite is fake crying, because he knows that gets me every time.  And here are some other things about him at 11 months:

  • He is in size 12 month clothes
  • Still size 2 diapers, but I think we are graduating to 3 once the 2s are all gone
  • He got another ear infection a couple weeks ago (his 3rd all ready) and that totally messed up his sleeping, so we are slowly getting back to him sleeping through the night, he wakes up at about 3 or 4 every night
  • He is taking 2 naps a day
  • He has 7 teeth
  • He eats everything, and could eat all day long if I let him
  • He weighs about 20.5 lbs
  • He's not walking or standing on his own yet- but that's just fine
  • He claps now, and it's so cute because he usually does it when Ellen comes on every day
  • He can hold his sippy cup now
  • "da-da" is his way of saying "ma-ma"
  • He's become a major thumb sucker
I know there's more, but I can't think right now, so I'll just finish with some adorable pictures of our little goof.

Happy Easter! (3 weeks later...)

Dang I suck at blogging lately.
We had a good Easter this year! My family was out of town, but we were able to have Jesse's family over for dinner and the Easter bunny spoiled Walter, of course.  We got to go to church and just hang out for the day, it was great.

The day before Easter, Sherri had a fun  little Easter egg hunt at her house.  Since Walter can't really hunt for eggs, she just put all of his eggs and toys on a blanket outside while the other kids ran around, Walter loved it and he got some fun things from his auntie Sherri!  Sherri's brother in law also made him a cute little onesie that said Official Easter Egg Hunter :)
