Zeke is 11 months old!

I can not believe Zeke is already 11 months old! Why am I always surprised when the baby is close to a year old? It goes by so quickly!

  • Zeke is still on the same routine as last month. He is sometimes sleeping all night from bedtime until morning and sometimes he will wake around 3. He naps around 9 for 1.5h and again at 1:30 for 1.5h. We've had a couple of short nap days, but he doesn't seem to cranky afterwards. 
  • He wakes in the morning around 6:30 if he sleeps all night and 7-7:30 if he woke during the night. Bedtime is dependent on naps, but usually 7:30ish. He is still in our closet at night, but I've just moved him upstairs to the boys' room for naps and that went fine. 
  • He is nursing in the morning, after the 2nd nap, bedtime, and during the night if he wakes. I dropped the after 1st nap session just a week ago and have started giving him a sippy of almond milk and a small snack in place of the nursing. He isn't crazy about the almond milk, but will usually drink a couple of ounces. 
  • Zeke is eating great still. Breakfast is usually 1/2 banana and either cheerios or part of a waffle with peanut butter. For lunch he either has leftovers from the night before, a small PB sandwich, or a black bean and cheese quesadilla with fruit of some kind. Supper is whatever we are having. Depending on what time we will be eating supper, he may have another fruit in the late afternoon. If we eat supper early, I will usually give him some bites of greek yogurt before bed. He is a great eater! I've noticed he is drinking a lot of water since we've been outside more too. 

  • He loves to wave to people and that is one of my favorite things he does! Those little fingers opening and closing are so sweet. He will wave on command and sometimes just when someone new comes into the room or we are leaving somewhere. 
  • Zeke is so active! He is all over the place and getting to be a fast walker. He loves to walk and squeal at the same time. I'm glad we've got carpet in the bedrooms because he gets silly sometimes and just falls over. He also does a funny wiggle where he shakes his head side to side. He started doing it when I would change his diaper and was trying to keep him distracted from trying to roll over. Now he will try to walk and wiggle. Here's the video! 
  • He loves to mimic us and will stick out his tongue if we do and he tries to make the sounds we make. So far he can pretty clearly say "bye bye" and says "dada" all the time and when Jared comes in the room. 

  • As you can see, still no teeth for Zeke! His bottom left one is right there, so it should be in soon! 
  • His hair is also getting crazy. I know it needs to be cut. I just haven't taken the time to make an appointment! 

  • Zeke loves to play ball! Here's a fun video of him.
  • He still does fine in the play pen for independent play time a couple of times a day.
  • He is such a joy to us and I can't believe he will be ONE soon!

Here they all are at 11 months old.
