11 Months

I have been waiting to do Jett's 11 month post until I could get a better picture of him but that just doesn't happen these days. He is so busy all the time. I know I always say this but I am in shock that he is already 11 months old and about to turn 1 year old. He is getting so big and turning into such a little.. I mean big boy.

11 Months
May 12, 2010

  • You weigh 23.3 lbs.
  • You moved up to a size 4 diaper because the 3s were cutting off your circulation!
  • You are wearing 12-18 month clothes.
  • He is still a wonderful sleeper but hates to fall asleep.. he fights sleep so bad!
  • He has always been a momma's boy but he has REALLY turned into one these days and I love it. He always wants to be in the same room as me or do whatever I am doing. He even goes in the bathroom with me!

Always busy.. trying to stand in his bed.

  • He is still a GREAT eater and will eat just about anything. We started eating the Gerber Lil' Crunchies this month and he LOVES those. He has had the Mild Cheddar and the Veggie Dip... we still haven't tried the Zesty Tomato but I heard those are the best!
  • He eats just about any kind of table food and I think he would rather have that than his baby food but I can't say I blame him.
  • He has 9 teeth.. 4 on top and 5 on the bottom. He got one of his Molars this month and he looks so cute when he smiles.
Oh how I love that sweet smile!
  • He smiles all the time and is still such a happy little guy! He is so pleasant and easy going.. He gets that from me!
  • He is a pro at drinking from a cup and he has learned to sip from a straw. He thinks that is funny and it always makes him laugh.
  • We still have the paci but I am hoping to loose those soon.
  • He is SO close to walking.... I am thinking it is going to happen any day now. He stands by himself at time but when he realizes he isn't holding on to anything he either squats down of grabs the nearest thing!

Playing in the ball pit at Natalie and Brian's.

  • He loves to play with anything. He has more toys than he knows what to do with but he is so fascinated by all of them. He really likes the ones that play music.
  • He still loves to dance!
  • He talks more each day and has started to make these screaching noises. I think he finds them funny because he laughs so hard after he does it!.
  • He is starting to be a loud little guy and he is SOOOO active. I can hardly keep up with him and I am just wondering what I am going to do when he starts walking.
  • He is so playful (and amazed) with anyone. He loves to interact with people.

I forgot to tell you how much Jett loves Ice Cream!

  • He plays tug of war with his dad and makes the funniest face and growls when he is trying to get whatever they are "tugging" for.
  • He has started clapping and he claps when he does something good or if someone else does good.
  • He loves being outside and will play as long as we will let him. He tried to eat a worm this month while we were working in yard one day. I am glad I looked to see what was in his hand and heading for his mouth.

  • He rode his 1st horse. Neal and I both grew up around horses and Neal and my dad are both crazy about them.... well I think Jett has the fever. He loves them and rubs on them and plays with them. You can just tell by his face that he is amazed!
  • He hates to sit down these days. He always wants to be up on those feet and moving around. He cruises around all of our furniture.
  • He has the best little personality and is SO much fun to be with!
  • I am so thankful for him and I can't imagine my life without him in it.

Sweet, sweet, sweet... I could just eat up those toes.

Playing outside... he has a fascination with straws.

Helping Mommy in the flower bed. He refused to sit.. I guess laying down in the dirt was much more fun! This was when he tried to eat the worm!!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! I am working today but I just got this picture on my phone. Guess who is standing up all by himself this morning. Neal just called and said that Jett took 4 steps all by himself. What an exciting Mother's Day present!

Spring Rod Run 2010

I thought I should probably post some pictures from Rod Run before I forget! We went to the Spring Rod Run the weekend of April 16th and had a great time! We met Natalie, Brian, Brian N, and Dakota up there after I got done with work on that Friday. We stayed the weekend and....

ate LOTS of YUMMY food......

spent lots of time with Mommy.....

went to the candy shop with daddy......

did LOTS of shopping (which isn't Jetti's favorite thing to do)....

played with our cousin Marley (don't you just fall in love with Jett's pirate face)...

looked at TONS of pretty cars.....

took some great naps while we walked.....

and walked some more!!!

We had SO much fun but life is very different with 2 little people instead of just one!
