First Library Trip

We ventured out on a windy Sunday afternoon to our neighborhood library. I’ve only been there once before a few years ago to check it out when it first opened and I was impressed to see all the new technology on how to check out. Now the books have RFID tags inside and you just simple set a whole stack at once and it will register what books you are checking out. Amazing! Such an improvement to the old days of card slots and scanning each book in.

Hanging out at the library

It was a pretty quiet day since it was in the late afternoon, the children’s area was great and had low book bins to browse for books. BabyBird was very excited and was the most vocal about his excitement that I have ever heard out in public. But maybe because it was so quiet that we heard you, but it cracked us up that you were making so much noise in the library.

Checking out the toys

We headed over to a donut looking table with puzzles and toys. It was too cute watching you play and crawl in and out of the area.

We walked around and checked out the special bookshelf for just board books.

Climbing the bookshelf

We borrowed Llama Llama Mad at Mama, and the original Curious George along with a few other simple board books.

11 Months Old

You are 11 months old today.

:: You love peas, they are you favorite finger food right now. You also eat mac & cheese, corn, black beans, and puffs.

Eating a cracker

:: Super fast crawler and love to play “fetch” with yourself, as you throw one of your balls and then crawl after it.

:: This month you have been a great sleeper. Like clock work, Daddy gives you a bath each night, followed by lotion and PJs, and I come in with a warm bottle we rock and cuddle as you drink your milk. A quick burp and some snuggles, a kiss goodnight, and I turn off the light. Then I lay you down, most of the time still awake in your crib and hand you Monkey and you fall asleep on your own and sleep through the night. You wake up consistently at 7am on the dot every morning.

:: You take a morning nap around 10:30am, and another one around 3:30pm. Each for about an hour.

Little Peanut

:: Go to bed around 7:30pm each night, and wake up promptly at 7am.

:: Very ticklish on your legs and the bottom of your feet.

:: Wearing 12-16 month shirts, and pants. You outgrew your Christmas outfit in 3 weeks. Wearing a size large sleep sack. But still in size 3 diapers.

:: Still using your infant aka “bucket” car seat but I think you will be outgrowing that very soon and will be getting you a toddler car seat.

:: Very expressive and you love to laugh.

:: No fear of anything. Crawling on the very edge of the bed, no problem!

:: You can climb up the stairs with assistance/personal catcher.

:: We are starting to see a lot more personality and a little temper here and there.

:: Slow fall, when you are sitting and then you slowly fall backwards when you see that I am watching and nearby. Naturally of course momma runs and catches you just before your head hits the floor.

:: Resist highchair/chair seat. Arched back. Stiff legs that don’t bend. Yup, you’ve mastered this one.

:: You have one crooked bottom tooth.

Happy 11th months old my sweet boy, I can’t believe that you will be 1 year old in just a few weeks. The time has moved faster than I would like and I am so proud of you every single day.
