Happy 11 Month Birthday Liam

Dear Liam,


      Well Buddy this is it, the home stretch to your first birthday. Your Daddy and I both agree that this month you changed so much in the way you interact and play. You are so much fun! You love anything with wheels be it a car, truck, train or your walk behind toy. You love to push your cars and trucks around the living room like they are driving.

You have grown extremely fond on this hammer…you crawl around with it all day! Oh and did I mention you think it is hysterical to hit us with it.


Your favorite game to play is tag. Everyday when Daddy gets home from work you play. You crawl so fast as he chases you, laughing and screeching with excitement. Every once in a while you plop yourself up to see how close he is, make eye contact, laugh and your off trying to to get caught. 


This month you learned how to give high fives and to “touchdown”…perfect timing for football season! You love to sound like an Indian and hit your mouth with your hands.


You have no interest in walking, none what so ever. I am pretty sure it is because you crawl SO fast! I’ve even had comments from strangers about how fast you are. I may eat my words in a few months but I cannot wait until you can walk! You love your freedom to explore and not being able to walk frustrates you so much when we are places that you can’t crawl. You cruise around furniture with ease and have gotten a lot better at standing without holding on to anything.

Liam how old are you going to be next month? “This old Mama”


You love to eat and although you have quite a sweet tooth you also love fruits and veggies. You have four 7 ounce bottles a day and eat three solid meals with snacks in between. You love yogurt! You love to hold a peeled apple and scrape tiny bites off with your two bottom teeth. You love tiny broccoli florets and sautéed tofu. Your favorite snacks are graham crackers, cheerios, and freeze fried fruit bites. Last night we celebrated your 11 month birthday with a Halloween oreo.


You are 23 pounds and 30 inches. You wear almost all 12 month size clothes and size 3 shoes or size 4 skidders. We transitioned over to cloth diapers this month and are loving them. You still wear a size 4 diaper at night. You have five teeth, VERY soon to be six. You have your two bottom teeth, and your top four minus the front right. You go to bed around 8 and get up around 7 each day. You usually take two one hour naps per day but you have gone a few days with only one nap.


You indiscriminately say “Dada”, “Muma”, “Pop”, “Bop”, “Nunu” and a few other words.


You had a bad cold this month that also lead to your first fever.


You still LOVE being out and about! You get cabin fever way too fast…we are in for it this winter for sure. You are such a good boy when we got out for lunch or dinner and always smile and make friends with people while shopping. You love playing with other kids and really enjoy hanging out with your Baby Jam group.

We have so many fun things planned this month, including your first birthday party on the 16th and a trip to Sesame Place on your birthday!

Love you always,



Look at how you’ve grown…..
