Fourteen Months Old

So I kind of missed posting his 13 month update because we dealt with a month & a half of health issues with Caius.. It started with battling a bad, severely irritated owie bum for over 4 weeks, then it was a cold which turned into double pink eye, then we believe he has a reaction to his 1 year immunizations which then led to him showing signs of dehydration... SO October into November was a complete sh*t show but we have FINALLY been having a good couple weeks with the mister, until last night... he now has a very loose, mucusy cough {yay...}  He has changed so much since his 1st birthday, we have such a little boy instead of a baby to keep us entertained everyday! Anytime he learns something new or mimics us, it's such an exciting feeling and is so much fun!

he's been cutting new teeth for over a month now, I think he has 8 total now
running everywhere's!
can say mama or mum, dada or daddy, nana, bapa {papa}, kitty, tweet tweet {birds}, up, that & go
he can make a kitty, a puppy, an elephant & a lion animal noise
he can sing the Mickey Mouse "hot dog" and Cat in the Hat "go, go, go on an adventure" songs
he's OBSESSED with Mickey Mouse {he gets to watch it on the iPad whenever we have to go some where's. don't judge.. it works for us}
gives us a quirky smile when we say "cheese!"
high fives
marching & claping
his stuffed bear & huskie dog
pointing at the christmas tree
pointing at papa in a photo
pointing at anything really {he's quite bossy that way}
yogurt, grilled cheese sandwiches, toast, watermelon, apples, burgers & smoothies
visiting with family or friends
cats & dogs
his snowsuit, boots, toque and mitts
going outside in any of these ^^^
being taken out of the tub
waiting for anything
being told no
withholding something he wants of yours
not being picked up when we're preparing or cooking any meal
being woken up from naps
bedtime or naps {doesn't hate it but doesn't like going to sleep}
and sleeping through the night.... yes, he hates this because he hasn't done it in a very, very, VERY long time....

Twelve Months Old


It is 4 days after my baby's 1st birthday... I still can't believe I have a 1 year old! He had a jungle themed party with all his family! He didn't dive into the cake, as I expected, but had a lot of fun playing with his cousins, visiting with grandparents, aunties & uncles and of course playing with some fun new toys. I was busy on the weekend with the party, having new doors installed on the house & getting ready to return to work so I finally have time to do his update!

24lbs., 31" long.
sleeps from 7pm-6/6:30am
says dada for absolutely everything
stands so good on his own and takes quite a few steps in between Neil and I {I assume he'll be walking 2 weeks from now, that's my guess} 
loves to read books
celebrated his 1st thanksgiving last weekend {wasn't feeling good so family suppers were a bust}
spent 3 mornings at daycare and had a lot of fun playing with his new friends
got to check out a hay maze at dutch growers & the local fire hall
and spent lots of time playing & hanging out with mama for the month of October 

He is now at daycare 5 days a week while I'm at work. Mama does drop off and Dada does pickup. He's done great the 2 full days he's been there! It's just been a hard adjustment on mama to not have more then 3 hours a day with him. Happy 1st birthday babe! you bring so much joy & laughter to us, your smile is infectious and we love you so much!

Eleven Months Old

big, exciting things around here! full on crawling and sleeping through the night! *yay, yay, yay!*

says dada, mama, uh {when we say uh oh} and mmm when he's eating something he likes
mimics like crazy!
does "so big!", waves bye bye, claps, dances and shakes his arms when we yell touchdown! 
loves to chase after the cats
is afraid to sit down on his own when he's standing up on something
loves to walk when holding hands
battled his 1st flu bug.. awful doesn't describe how those 4 days went
he's always had a big attitude but it sure shows more now that he's able to communicate

4 more weeks and my baby is 1... can someone please pass a package of toilet paper {tears, tears & more tears}

Ten Months Old

I don't know how my little baby is 10 months old already. The 10 month mark makes his 1st birthday sound much, much closer and much more real. Tears start as I think about that so I'll just move forward with what's been going on with him

22lbs & 29" long
has almost 4 top teeth and 2 on the bottom
eats like a little porker {3 meals a day, snacks in between and has table food after his baby food meals}
he's on the move! 
only took 9.5months! he is army crawling, going from his tummy to sitting & back to his tummy and all of a sudden he has an interest in assisted walking. loving all the movement!
he figured out how to clap
he says da-da no problem {and all the time}
went boating for the 1st time
we've been going to the local outdoor pool a few times a week and he loves it
his favourite toys are his golf clubs, garden centre, xylophone & elephant ball toy
he really loves to mimic
had his 2nd real haircut and will be going for his 3rd right away

we love you noodle! I still can't believe your 10 months old... mama really isn't looking forward to only having 2 more months with you...
