Theodore: 11 Months


So close to one Mr. Theodore!

Still happy and content all.the.time. (well, unless you're hungry...then you let us know!)

Here are some 11 month stats:

-You probably weigh about 19.5 lbs.

-Talking constantly-trying to communicate with your sister.  She thinks it's so funny!

-Working on walking!  You pull up on everything and walk around the side of your crib..sometimes for an hour before you fall asleep!  Eventually you just fall over, stick that thumb in and sleep.

-Wearing size 3 diaper with size 4 waiting for you, 12 and 12-18 month clothes, size 3 shoe

-Eating 6oz 4 times a day. We'll move you down to 4oz. in a couple days and see how you do. You're starting to pick out your favorite foods at the table.  Cheese and yogurt bites are definitely the first to go in your mouth.  You eventually eat everything.  Some things just a little slower than others.

-You celebrated your first Easter!

-Love drinking water out of a sippy cup with a straw!  We can't let you hold it by yourself yet or it goes on the floor.

-Going down at night around 7pm and waking up around 7:30-8am. Still taking 2 naps a day-am nap between 9:30-11 and pm nap between 1-3:30pm.

-This month you had your first real sickness.  A double ear infection and pink eye in both eyes!  Your pink eyes cleared up quickly, but you're still tugging at your ears a little bit.  The walk-in doctor said to have them checked at your 1 yr. appt. and make sure everything's cleared up.

-Almost 3 teeth!  One of your top teeth is popping through!  You're handling teething like a pro.  Very drooly and wet, but other than that, you're doing great kiddo!

-Still signing "more" and "all done".  You clap "more" like your sis did when she was your age.

Amazing night of worship last night!!

....and being in the 5th row didn't hurt either! :)

Girly nails, big green ball, baby nephew and little boy sickness


Last weekend, MJ and I had a girly morning painting nails and watching "Tangled" (well, about 45 min of it....maybe I'll see how it ends someday) while Tim was at practice and Theo was napping.

Letting her red nails dry

This weekend has been quite eventful!

Madelyn's getting in 2 of her bottom back molars. So she's been acting just peachy! Ha! And potty training on top of that has been Actually, she's doing pretty well. Love that girl.

Baby boy hasn't been feeling too great these past couple weeks. Mainly just a runny nose. So we thought he was teething. On Thursday, I came home from work and he had some yucky gunk in his eyes. I had a feeling it was more than just teething. We thought we'd give it a day and see how he was. I left for work Friday before anyone else was awake. Tim called saying Theo's eyes looked better, he didn't have a fever and was playing like normal. Being his happy self. So he came on to school to give his class midterms while Izzy watched the kids. We had another babysitter scheduled to come over that night so we could head out to see a movie. We saw the new movie "42". Really good!
Saturday morning Theo's eye yuckiness was back, but not as bad as Thursday. I had a haircut appt right after lunch so I took MJ to target to grab a few groceries in the morning before I headed out. We had Theo take his morning nap and decided I'd take him to the walk-in after my appt. We were the only ones in the clinic, thankfully! The doctor said he had a double ear infection and pink eye! Today I've stayed home from church and small group to take care of baby boy. He's slept most of day from the meds. But when he's awake, he's playing and having a good ole time. Such a little trooper.

Poor kiddo

Also on Saturday morning, my brand new baby nephew was born, Garrett Allen! He is such a cutie and my brother and sis-in-law are in love with him. Garrett and Crystal, his momma, are both healthy and doing great!

Here's to praying and hoping for a calm week....and that little girl won't get the eye yuckiness.
