11 Months!

I can't believe that this is my last monthly post before Tanner turns 1! It's crazy how fast this year has gone by and how many changes our family has gone through. I remember thinking I would never survive this first year and here we are thriving and very happy. Things are still crazy busy with two kids 18 months apart but we love the way it turned out!

Tanner is about 21 pounds right now. He's eating three meals a day plus two bottles. He's still doing a few jars but he is also eating yogurt, cut up fruit and veggies and a few meats. I am looking forward to no more formula and no more baby food, but it's crazy to think I will never buy it again! He has five teeth and has handled teething pretty well so far. He's been a little cranky but nothing too bad so we've been very lucky. He only uses his binky in his bed and he goes to bed on his own every night. He's amazing! We just lay him down, give him his binky, turn his music on and shut the door and he never makes a sound. He sleeps about 12-13 hours at night and then about 3-4 hours total during the day. Some days he still takes a morning nap but he is starting to get away from that!

He really plays a lot now. Tanner and Izabel will play for a large part of the day in one of their bedrooms. They will run/crawl back and forth. Of course they have toys all over the house and they love to play in the kitchen too. Tanner can jump on the horse now but he can't quite get on by himself. He's still just crawling and cruising, no walking yet. I knew he wouldn't walk as early as Izzy did, but I don't think he's even close! I know he'll walk when he's ready but I was hoping he would do it by his birthday.

Happy 11 months handsome boy! We love you!
