I cannot believe my child turned 11 months old yesterday. That just completely blows me away! I took a few pictures of him this morning. Here are the few that I think turned out the best:
Smile for Momma!:
He's getting so good at going to the gym day care! Almost every day, the ladies that work in there tell me that he's getting easier to take care of. He almost never cries for them anymore, only when I first leave. Most of the time when I come to pick him up, he's playing with toys and is as happy as can be. Yay! It's about time I was able to feel good about dropping him off there!
Speaking of dropping him off, I had a dental appointment yesterday and Bear stayed with my friend Nancy and her daughter, Kaitlyn. He's so used to Nancy, he didn't even cry when I left. Apparently, he was good the entire time, but started to get sleepy right before I got back. Perfect! So we went home and he had a nap. I need a filling (eww), so he's going back to Nancy's house this afternoon. Hopefully, it'll be a repeat of yesterday's good behavior!
I wrote in my last post about how he loves to share his food with me. Well, he's just discovered that our dogs like sharing even more than I do! He spends the end of every meal time tossing food onto the floor and then laughing when the dogs run over to eat it. It's very cute right now, but it'll get annoying when he wastes his entire lunch! Maybe he won't ever do that...I can dream, right?
He seems to be getting more adaptable, too. The past two nights, we've kept him up past his bedtime and he seems to be okay with that. A friend was in town and the only time she was able to hang out was in the evenings, so that's what we did. We went out to dinner and kept him out until 9:00 (his usual bedtime is between 8 and 8:30) and he was just fine. I still keep to the routine once we get home--bath and then cuddle on the couch while we watch a Baby Einstein--so maybe that's what did the trick. Who knows?! I'm just glad to be able to do things with friends when the occasion arises.
