Life With a Baby – 11 Months Old!!!!

11 months old

How oh how is my baby almost 1 year old?! Where has the past 11 months went? I mean seriously, it has gone so fast! We are in the process of planning his first birthday and in high mode buying decorations, meal planning and all that beautiful jazz! 

Clay is officially 11 months old, wow! He has such a personality, it is for sure contagious! He is one shy little man but once he warms up he is all about laughing, hugs, kisses, and having fun! I think he is shy because his dad and I both are a little shy at first, so it comes naturally to him!

Clay 11 Months

SO What is NEW: 

Absolutely in love with his Pal Scout by LeapFrog – when you push a button and Scout starts talking he just smiles ear to ear.

I bought this Minky Chenille Blankee for Clay before he was born, he now uses it for his security blanket, at naps and such. I bought it from Bebe Bella Designs – you can buy it here.

Macaroni and Cheese is his most favorite food by far! Clay just goes to town eating it. He also loves anything with potatoes, cheese of all kinds, and crackers. He can be picky with his foods, but when we find something he loves it is a winner in our books!

He is really using his Vtech Sit to Stand walker. He isn’t walking on his own, but getting very close. He will push this walker around to get to where he wants to go!

Sleeping is getting a lot better finally! He isn’t eating at midnight, he can sleep through the nights now. He still tosses and turns and needs soothed a few times through the night but it is SO much better than before. You can really tell he is changing in his sleep. He might sleep 9-10 hours a night.

As for naps he normally takes 2 naps a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. He does wake up around 5:30 or 6 am, we haven’t got him to sleep in yet. In time I hope we reach that!

He is really very needy lately, crying when you sit him down. He is going through a growth leap and that all those mixed emotions he is having are totally normal from what I read.

Clay is Officially 9 Months Old! Where Has the Time Gone?!

My Baby is Almost A Year Old! 

CLay 9 Months

Man oh man, our little Clay is growing up so quick! I can’t believe today he is 9 months old! The time sometimes feels to go slow and others at warp speed! He has brought us so much joy it isn’t even funny! He loves to laugh and do silly things to make us laugh, I think we will have a fun little guy on our hands!

So, as for his health, he is doing amazing. He was diagnosed with salt wasting congenital adrenal hyperplasia at one week old and we almost lost him. It is a genetic disorder that he was born with, and came as a shock to us. He has to be on medicine for the rest of his life and we have to be very careful if he gets sick. But, with God on our side Clay has been doing amazing. He is thriving, and that is so good to see! His sodium and potassium levels have been in the right range at the last few appointments. We are just keeping a close eye on him and making sure all is well. He doesn’t have to get blood work or see specialist for five months which is amazing!

Family Time

What Has He Been Up To These Days

  • Clay is loving meat, yogurt and cheese. Those are probably the three things he loves the most to eat! 
  • He is saying mommy, daddy, hi, bye, oh, and a few more words.
  • He will wave hi and bye at times when he feels like it! 
  • Loves to play peek-a-boo. 
  • Clay will get behind a chair and try to peek around to see daddy sitting in it, to scare him! It is so cute! 
  • Still working on walking, he stands up on things really well while holding on.

So that is all for now, make sure to stay tuned for the next update!
