nathan - 11 months old

Nathan is 11 months old now! Can you believe it's only 1 month until he is 1? This month has been so fun even though he has been sick for some of it. 

I don't have as much time to spend blogging since going back to work. So, in work fashion, here is a bullet point list of our highlights this month.

  • Nate started crawling! He crawled all the way down the hall one evening chasing after a ball. It was the cutest thing and he was laughing as he crawled along. He hasn't stopped crawling since and he is getting quite fast. I managed to catch his first proper crawl on video.

  • He has cut both of his top middle teeth now, so he has 4 teeth in total. He has been in some pain from the teething, but nothing too bad. A little dose of painkillers seems to take the edge off of any pain he has at bed time.
  • He sleeps through the night, most of the time. That said, he does often get up at 4.45am ready to start the day! And on quite a few occasions he has woken up around 10pm and needed resettling. I'm not sure how to fix these 2 little issues right now, but I'm grateful for how well he is sleeping. 
  • Nate points all the time and at everything. I am trying my best to decipher his gestures, but sometimes it's hard to figure out what he is trying to convey. 
  • His favourite things to eat right now are blueberries, cheese and cheerios. He would rather feed himself than be fed and tries to use a spoon to feed himself yogurt, but it mostly ends up on his face.
  • He is settled in at nursery now and sleeps like a champion there! He slept for nearly 3 hours one afternoon. I'm not sure how they get him to do that. 
And now for some photographic highlights.

  2. Nearly a year? Where does the time go? My Little Lady was one 2 weeks ago. Sometimes it doesn't seem two minutes, other times it feels a life time ago! My baby has skipped the whole crawling thing and has created a novel, highly hilarious way of getting around :-)
