11 Months

Kaden turned 11 months on 1-1-11!! We can't believe how big he has gotten, and that he is almost 1!
Our little boy is the happiest little thing and almost always has a smile on his face, the only time he doesn't is when he is too busy demanding food! He is changing everyday, but here are some of the things he is up to...
  • Eating! Kado is still a big eater and will eat just about anything that we put in front of him. Thankfully he isn't very picky, but his favorite foods are definitely any type of fruit. He is eating 3 meals a day with 1-2 snacks, and about 2 weeks ago he decided he was done nursing, so he is completely transitioned to whole milk.
  • Kaden is always "talking"! He likes to point to things and say "da" and want to touch it and know what it is. But there are 2 words that he definitely knows, "duck" and "drink". Terry has quite the collection of ducks around the house and Kaden is very good at pointing them out! In our house you cannot sit and enjoy something to eat or drink without Mr. Kaden begging for some. Whenever he sees someone with something he crawls as fast as he can and starts gleefully saying "drink". It is pretty cute, but sometimes it would be nice to have a drink without having so much backwash!
  • Walking is just around the corner for Kaden. He is really good at cruising the furniture and walking with his walker or while holding our hands, but Daddy has decided we are going to spend this weekend teaching him to walk! We have been practicing having him walk between the two of us and he has taken 4-5 steps on his own before he sits down or leans into us. Karter is a great big brother and loves to have him walk to him too!
  • Kaden is a drooling machine! It goes in spurts, but more often than not Kaden is soaked from his chin to his diaper. For a long time we were associating it with teething, but he still just has the two bottom teeth.
  • Kaden is all boy, and loves to get on the floor and wrestle with anyone or anything. Rascal has gotten to the point where when he sees Kado coming he gets out of the way! Kaden's favorite thing to wrestle are the pillows. When he sees one on the floor he will squeal and crawl full force into it. Him and Karter have a lot of fun with the pillows.
  • Just like his big brother, Kaden loves music and clapping. Just about every toy the boys got for Christmas makes noise music, and Kaden loves to turn them on just to listen to the music and dance. He gets pretty proud of himself and claps!
  • Bath time is definitely a favorite time of day in our house (for everyone!), but Kaden especially loves it because he gets to crawl up the stairs. Not only does he get to go on the forbidden stairs, but most nights he usually just has a diaper on (if that) and this boy loves to be naked!
  • He is turning into a pretty good sleeper. He goes to bed around 8:15 and on most nights we don't hear from him again until 6:30am. Up until this past week he had been taking two naps a day, but this week we dropped his morning nap, to free up sometime for us to leave the house and run errands. So far he is adjusting very well, and doesn't seem anymore cranky at bedtime.
  • I just can't believe that he will be one in less than a month! We are in the process of finding a new pediatrition, so next month we will have some official weight/height updates! He is a big boy wearing 12-18 month clothes, size 4 diapers during the day and size 5 at night, and we can't find any regular shoes to fit his chunky little feet! He's perfect :)

Even though we are a week late...Happy 11 months to our precious baby boy!!
