Kellen can't be 11 months....Can he???

Where has the time gone??? Where did my little, snugly baby go? All I can say is what a difference a month or even a few weeks make. Kellen has taken off! He went from taking a step or two to now taking as many as he can before he loses his balance and plops down. He does pretty good balancing, but he gets going so fast that his legs can't keep up with him! :o) Here is what he is up to these days...

  •  He is still weighing around 26lbs. He can wear 12 months still, but we have had to move to some 18 months due to needing some more belly room and the arms on the shirts needing to be a little longer. He is wearing a size 4 diaper and we are about to have to buy some new shoes for him.
  • He has begun to eat all table food. He still eats pretty well, but he is becoming a little more opinionated and will not eat the same thing more than once in a row. He loves pepperoni...I thought it would be too spicy for him, but he loves it. He is beginning to like hot dogs and still loves mac and cheese. He got to try eggs and blueberry pancakes while mommy was home last week. He seemed to love them both. He loves bananas and pretty much all fruit. He really loved veggies when they were in a jar, but now he is not so into them....I may have to get sneaky and start putting them into other things. Of course I decided to let him try ice cream and he LOVES it. Bad Mommy! :o) It is so hard though because when you are eating he will come up to you and give you puppy eyes and grunt at you like "what about me"??? I know that it seems like he loves all food, but it really does depend on the day...we have been struggling trying to find something for him to eat because one day he will eat it and the next he won't and then the day after that he will eat it again! I think he is just trying to say "Mommy I have an opinion on what I eat"!!! On is 11th month birthday I decided to take him down to 3 bottles instead of 4 and introduced whole milk. He loves milk, juice, and water!!! Next weekend we are going to start weaning him off formula and bottles all together! We will see how it goes!
  • The week before Christmas he decided it was time to try walking and since then he hasn't stopped...he gets further and further each time. He has a couple of walker toys and will just buzz around the kitchen and living room. He still loves to push chairs around the kitchen. So yes, Kellen is walking! I can't believe it...what happened to my baby! He is growing way to fast. Kellen still loves his bath and loves to play with all his ducks. I got him a basketball hoop and these balls to play with in the tub he Loves it!
  • He is really into music right now. Any time he hears music he stops what he is doing and will start dancing! It is the cutes thing...I will have to try and get it on video. I love it! :o) We have this fisher price thing that goes on the fridge that has animals you try and match up and it will tell you interesting facts about them and of course plays music. Kellen will just push the music button over and over and dance away. The cutest thing was on tv the other day music started to play so he crawled over to the tv console and pulled himself up and started dancing to the music! It was so cute!
  • Still no words other than "mama" and "dada" and we are working on "ball".
  • He has 8 teeth, but more are coming...I feel so bad for them. He has one on the way and it seems to be really bothering him. The amount fo drool that comes from him is amazing! :o) We still have not scheduled his surgery, but hope to get it done before his 1st b-day so I will keep you up to date on that!
 Every day I am amazed at how much Kellen is changing, growing and learning! He has been a blessing from the start. I could never have imagined 2009 and how it turned out. It has been an amazing year. The good days have out weighed the bad by far this year. Even bad days are really not so bad anymore, because I know at the end of the day I get to go home to the two loves of my life!
