Lawson turns 11 months old today! I can not believe that he will be one next month! Hard to believe that this time last year I was big and pregnant! Where has this time gone??!!
Lawson is a growing and thriving little boy! He loves to explore everything...including the dog's toys, anything on the floor that he can put in his mouth and the dog's food. He was a bit of a late crawler but has learned quickly how to crawl, pull up, move around and walk holding onto things. We have successfully transitioned to all sippy cups during the day and he still gets his night time bottle. We will probably hold onto that one for a little bit longer. I think it will be harder for me to give that one up than for him. It is the one time during the day he will sit with me, relax and hold my hand. Oh well, part of growing up...guess I should get used to it! He still takes 2 naps a day (morning and afternoon) that last anywhere between 1 1/2 to 2 hours. His bedtime is still 730ish and sleeps till 730 and sometimes even 8am!!
Lawson is eating more "adult" food. We try to give him a taste of what we are eating as long as we think he can gum it down. He LOVES fresh fruit!! Bananas, peaches, apples and plums are his favorites!! His favorite food for breakfast right now is pancakes!! I found these mini pancakes that I tear up for him and he devours them. And the whole time he eats them he says "Mmmmm" and smacks his lips! It is hard to find him food I think he can handle because he doesn't have many teeth. Speaking of teeth...Lawson has the two on the bottom and today looking in his mouth (which I do daily..esp now since he has been running a low grade fever) I saw the top right tooth about to come through as well as the one right next to it (maybe the eye tooth..not sure).
Lawson is saying "Momma" really well lately...esp when he cries. He says "dada" as well but manly in a playful tone when he sees Mitch and he says "ooooo" whenever he thinks something is interesting. Other than that, his talking is still pretty much baby babble. He acts like he knows what he is trying to say.
We feel so blessed to be able to have him our lives! He is truly the best gift we could have every received! He is the happiest little baby and always has a smile on his face!!
We love you Lawson!! Happy 11 months my sweet boy!!
