.:Leo: 11 Months:.

Eating: Leo is eating 3 meals a day, still a combo of purees and solid foods. Sometimes he prefers to feed himself and other times he just wants to be spoon fed. I also will feed him purees sometimes to reduce the mess ;)

He's nursing 3-4x during the day now, usually just before naps and bedtime.

Sleeping: Leo has been waking a few more times at night lately, maybe teething related? He goes to bed around 6:30-7pm. He usually has a dream feed around 9:30-10:30pm and then two wakeups over night, usually around 3 or 4am and again at 6am. He sleeps until 8-8:30am.

Leo still naps twice a day. He's only awake for 2-3 hours before needing a nap and will sleep for 1-2 hours most times.

Diapers: Size 3 Pampers Swaddlers for disposables at night, but mostly in cloth diapers.

Weight/Size: He hasn't been weighed recently (since end of November) so I'm not sure. He's outgrowing his 9 month sleepers and pants though.

Leo is wearing 6-12 month clothing. He wears size 3 infant shoes.

Hair and eyes: Light brown-blonde hair and blue eyes.

Leo's eczema has been good. No flare ups, even with a slight reintroduction of dairy into my diet. I still notice that he will scratch when I'm changing him but he seems fine when his clothes are on. 

Milestones: Leo started crawling on December 23rd, just in time for Christmas! He is so fast too! He loves his new found freedom! It also makes photographing him very difficult!

We also had to lower Leo's crib because I found him sitting up in it one day and he was starting to pull himself up on the rails.

Leo has been babbling a lot. He says "dada dada", "mum mum mum mum" and all sorts of different combinations of sounds. He also likes to shriek!

Teething: Leo has 8 teeth- he got his 2 front teeth just in time for Christmas! So four on the top and four on the bottom. He has been drooling lots the last few days and I see some other teeth a bit farther back so I'm sure more are on their way.

Personality: Sweet, happy little boy! He is starting to have small tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants.

Nicknames: Little Man, Mr. Leo, Lovey, Baby Brother, Buddy, Goofball, Little Love

Likes: Eating, people talking to him, sitting in the high chair at the table, splashing in the water, the Ergo, crawling, being tickled, blast off with Daddy, his sister and playing peek-a-boo

Dislikes: dirty diapers, teething, being alone, falling over

Mommy Update: I'm in shock that in one month our little guy will be 1 year old! How time flies! It seems like yesterday we were anticipating his arrival and now he is crawling, babbling and such a joy in our lives. My return to work (part time) is creeping up so I am trying to enjoy every moment at home with these two. 

Big Sister: Audrey is learning to share, especially now that Leo is crawling and grabbing her toys! She loves him, most of the time!

"Your eyes are blue!"

Misc:  Leo had a great 1st Christmas! 

Leo, each month you amaze me with your sweetness, patience and happiness! It has been just a joy to watch you grow and have you as part of our family.
