Owen at 11 months!

Our sweet Owen is 11 months!! I can't believe it. I'm finding the old saying "the days are long but the years are short" is so true. Some days I think back to our poor baby having so many problems as a newborn, with reflux/milk allergy, being hospitalized for losing weight after he'd born at over 9 lbs. I think you can tell I'm still traumatized by the experience. But he's now a goofy, darling boy who brings us SO much joy! He's truly such a wonderful addition to our little family. 

Here's what he's up to at 11 months!

Weight | 21 lbs! Carrying he and Lila around together, while rare that I have to carry both of them, is getting rather challenging!

Health | Thankfully this has been much better!! He had one bad cold recently and didn't seem to get ear infections afterward (THANK GOODNESS) so hopefully he can stay healthy for awhile now ... 

Sleep | This finally is truly consistent at night - he sleeps from 7 p.m. - 7 a.m. every night. It's amazing. Naps, however, are a different story. Some days he needs two. Most days he will only do one. And some days he barely will do any! If only someone would put me down for two naps a day - pure heaven! ;) 

Food | He's such a good little eater. Some of his new favorite foods are pesto pasta, blueberry waffles, chicken and peas. Mmm! 

Teeth | Just the bottom two, so cute. 

Interests & Milestones |  He's REALLY trying to walk. He'll do 3-4 steps max before falling but he's SO proud of himself. If you say, "Owen, can you walk to Mama?" he knows what you mean and immediately stands and lets go of whatever he's holding onto and gets the biggest smile. He then does his little steps, sits and claps for himself! It's so cute!! He always has the biggest smile on his face and is so sweet. He's also "talking" a lot more now. Dada, mama, baba, lala (we are SURE he's saying Lila, of course) and other cute babbles. He also likes to blow kisses, wave and plays peek-a-boo with his blanket. His favorite activity is still following Lila anywhere and everywhere, and is so curious to play with her. 

We are so blessed to be his family and we love him so much!!!
